21st Century side scrolling. Musicians are warriors here! San Francisco is on the verge of being invaded by mysterious creatures. The city has become darker, quieter, and gloomier. The story is told through a group of musicians who have learned the ways of super natural powers from the use of music. The epic production is more than just a video game – Playing musical instruments to fend off enemies is going to be the main reason why Project Encore is unique. Notes being played through various instruments and memorized songs will give a high amount of output for users. Characters will have an in depth background stories and strong character development, throughout the production you will experience: original music, detailed animations, and quality showcasing.

An explanation of the concept for Encore's environment for the demo.

Posted by etherealmuse on Mar 12th, 2009


First and foremost, the location of Project Encore’s beginning story starts in San Francisco. Buildings are still in tact however some aren’t so lucky. San Francisco offers a lot of variety in terms of moods and color scheme’s. With environments such as Union Square and the Golden Gate Park, it will allow us to present certain themes within the story. In terms of themes and emotional articulation, San Francisco will offer a variety of options to choose from:

• Sunny
• Gloom and Doom
• Happy
• Anger
• Hate
• Epic
• And many more emotional feelings

The world of Encore will be known for having one of the most attractive, and stylized environments throughout the entire side-scrolling genre because of its use of color, stylized structures and music. Each level will provide a strong emotional theme for the users to digest. It is vital that each level articulates its own mood and feeling.

Imps have been transferring from their universe to ours through portals. The first original portal was sited in the center of Golden Gate Park. Imps were starting to abduct humans, mainly musicians and doing strange things to them. Once the lifeless body served its purpose, Imps were nice enough to bury their bodies and put tombstones over them. Since Erika’s discover of Onate`, the world has significantly changed, and sound waves were the reason behind it.

In addition, the camera will be zoomed in and personal with the main characters, like the composition above. Encore! will be using a lot of foreground elements and strong ambient changes to project moods and emotions.

that's one hell of a good concept artist. What's the program he uses when painting the ugly boss at the end of the vid? Is that Open Canvas? I thought it was Sketchbook, but the interface looks different from mine.
