Set in a land, where common physics apply but everything else looks different. You are Tiny, a little, technophile guy with a ray cutter, a gripping device, a bad habit and a fine attitude towards the world. But now your nemesis Big stole the only heritage your grandpa left you: A fine pair of white, fine rib underpants and he‘s surely up to no good. Why else should he climb that haunted, ancient mountain in the desert. Where noone goes… So load up that raygun and rope device and take your annoying and jabbering backpack to accompany you. It‘s always been good use to your gramps. Run, jump, drag, shove and laser your way up that mountain, get back those underpants!

RSS The guys behind Tiny and Big: Florian Grolig (game-/ level-designer)

The third issue of “The guys behind Tiny and Big” series gives you a view over the work of our game-designer Florian Grolig.

Posted by on

Cheers fellow indie friends,

welcome to the third issue of our “The guys behind Tiny and Big” series. Today we introduce you our game-designer and black and white artist Florian Grolig.

Florian is an animation filmmaker and game designer from Kassel. In 2010 he finished his studies at the School of Arts and Design Kassel, Germany with the animated short „MS. Found In A Bottle“. During his studies he realised some short films and did experimental life video.

At Black Pants, he is responsible for animation, game- and level-design and works on the 3D content. He brought up the vision of a game with an entirely destructible environment and builds the following levels. A closer look to each level we'll give you in one of our next articles soon.

Hmm, did you do those entirely on your own, or did someone help? I'm assuming you did it by yourself. They're very good.

Thanks, great you like it. i graduated in 2010 with 'MS. Foun in a Bottle'. 'Tiny and Big' started as a 'free' uni-project but we continued the development after our graduation and now it's our first game as 'Black Pants Studio'.
