Piñata created this short teaser trailer for Melody Monsters, a casual puzzle game for iOS.
The characters and magical world were created at SongHi and it was a task for the wizards at Piñata to bring the dreamland to life! Stylized character art turned into whimsical 3D characters, and it didn't took long after animators Jani and Ville made them move.
Stylistically we felt that it would be intersting to keep the warmhearted feel of the artwork in backgrounds and textures; create a mix of 3D and a warm handcrafted feel of hand painted textures: "Our team had a very clear idea of the look they were after right from the beginning and along the way the people at SongHi gave insight how the characters and the teaser should reflect the harmony and tone of the game.", producer Sari describes the project.
