Can You Keep Up “The Act”?

With video games like Skullgirls and the soon-to-come Dust: An Elysian Tail, it’s been fascinating seeing how hand-drawn animations can be incorporated into gameplay with today’s technology. Since mobile devices are part of the new frontier, check out this game, The Act.

Or rather, interactive animation drawn by animators who’ve worked with Disney at some point. You wouldn’t be able to tell from the trailer, but in every scene, you’re tasked to help Edgar keep up appearances by sliding your finger across the screen to shift his emotions, affect his actions, and the intensity of such.

You can get this roughly 30-40 minute game in the iTunes store for $3, other digital stores getting it later.

No one on the staff knew Kimlinh was experienced voice actress “Hnilmik” until she mentioned it in passing. They just knew her as the screenwriting major who enjoyed visual novels, puzzle games, adventure games, and RPG’s. When she’s not busy voice acting, she’s gaming.

    That looked impressive. Reminds me of 60s and 70s Disney animation. I’ll be checking this game out. Thanks.
