The developer behind Chicory: A Colorful Tale, Greg Lobanov, has revealed he’s currently working on a new game. Lobanov broke the news in a Tweeter where he included the image of a jumping animal.
“I’ve waited a long time for everyone to know: I’m working on something new with the Chicory team,” Lobanov said on January 1, 2022. “I can’t wait to talk more about it! I hope to share the details in 2022.
While he gave no information about the project, Lobanov posted a job offer advertising which offers some clues about the upcoming title. The game will apparently feature furry animals in a bucolic setting.
Lobanov is keen to hire a creature concept artist at some point in February 2022. The ad refers to “designs with a lot of character and personality” as well as “real world animals / biology”.
“We are looking for someone to design creatures / monsters based on team prompts. We expect you to sketch ideas, then make adjustments to the creature’s design based on feedback, then produce finished digital illustrations of your design from different angles that the team can use as reference for other assets. We will also include you in the feedback discussions on other designs and ask for your thoughts on the work of others.
Lobanov released the critically acclaimed Wandersong on September 27, 2018. The game is “a musical platform adventure with a moving story. Play as a silly bard and use the music to interact with everything on a trip around the world. Along the way you will explore, solve puzzles and meet a large number of characters! “
Similar to Wandersong, Chicory received critical acclaim when it was released on June 10, 2021. The title is described as “a top-down adventure game set in a coloring book world full of vibrant characters.” Use the paint powers to explore, solve puzzles, make friends, and draw on anything! Chicory was on several of our play of the year lists for 2021.
While details on the project are scarce, Lobanov’s news has been met with enthusiasm. Players of his previous titles have wished him good luck in the development of his next game.
