We had the pleasure of chatting with Peter the project lead of SoulBound!
1. What inspires your work?
The thing that inspires my work is the rewarding feeling of having someone enjoy my game, with making a game being a big undertaking seeing it payoff with people having fun playing my game is just a feeling a can’t describe. I’ve always loved playing games and now being someone who makes those games, it is a lot of hard work but super rewarding and its never boring.
2. Tell us about your game? What can fans expect?
SoulBound is a 2D pvp platformer where one player control’s a ninja whose goal is to traverse through a randomly generated level whilst the other player controls a ghost who can possess and control the enemies throughout the level in order to try and defeat the ninja. Once the ninja is defeated the player’s roles are swapped and whoever travels the furthest as the ninja wins. This core gameplay loop constantly has the players switching roles and with a variey of enemies to possess and control there’s a lot of fun to be had with a friend when playing our chaotic twist on a platformer.
3. What are your goals for 2023?
For 2023 our goals are to establish our studio and release SoulBound with potentially updating it post launch, we then hope that the revenue generated is enough to fund our further game projects so we can keep doing what we love.
4. What advice would you give to someone who wants to do what you do?
If you want to be a game developer or any role in the games industry no matter what your skillset is, your strengths or weaknesses just go for it. I came into university with a c in computing and left with a first degree in games technology and now I’m in the Tranzfuser games making competition trying to setup our own studio. Work hard and it is hard but if you’ve made something you can genuinely be proud of, your on the right track.
5. Where and how can people support your work?
We’ve just got our steam page up so Wishlisting the game is the best thing you can do to help us since it really helps with metrics, other than that you can find us on twitter and tik tok to stay up to date on everything SoulBound. You can find us on the Tranzfuser website and we’re also going to EGX this month with Tranzfuser so come try out the game then. https://store.steampowered.com/app/2093060/SoulBound/… https://twitter.com/SchmoovinStudio https://tiktok.com/@officialsoulbound… https://tranzfuser.com/new-tranzfuser-teams/schmoovin-studios/
