Starjammer is a tactical card game with an immersive scifi setting currently in development by Black Zeppelin Studio.
To help promote the game I was asked to produce a trailer introducing the game’s world and main characters. I pitched the idea of using a news broadcast as a framing device, featuring a set of newsreaders who could also be used in the final game.
Black Zeppelin then gave the go ahead which started the preproduction phase.
PUSHPLAY handled scriptwriting, storyboarding, animatics, animation and editing and brought on voice talent to give life to the two newsreaders who would introduce the world.
The game’s illustrator provided character and background art, which was then turned into animated sequences. Black Zeppelin also provided access to their art folders, which meant their high quality game art could be used front-and-center to promote their upcoming title.
The above trailer went unused as the game’s currently undergoing redesigns.
