"The Coral Cave" is a 2D point & click adventure game. It will be entirely handmade and animated in watercolors. Mizuka, a little Japanese girl, lives on a small remote island, in the Okinawa archipelago. One night, she has a strange dream. When she wakes up, a terrible danger is threatening her village. Mizuka must explore the surroundings and enter a mysterious spirit world in order to save her island.

Hello!
Today, we'd like to show you a few animations from our adventure game The Coral Cave. All animations are hand-drawn on paper. It's a time-consuming but rewarding technique.

Below is the original handpainted animation of the reflection on the sea.

Since Cecile is alone to animate the entire game, we use various techniques to save time. Per example, the walk of the character is only 8 frames long.

Or sometimes, we animate only one small part of a character. It's enough to bring him to life.

I am following this game now for a while. Just wonder if this game still is in development? Seems like it's dead, would be a shame since this game looks very promising

Sorry for the lack of updates. We are still working on the game.
We have neglected indiedb because it's difficult to write in English (we're French) but we have so many things to say and to show about the game! We'll try to write something in the coming days.
Thank you for your message and see you!
