Our friend Chris Venter helped illustrate “Waarvoor is Seerowers Bang?” which was written by Jaco Jacobs. A company called “Full Circle” (working with LAPA distributors) created an interactive design based on the well known South African illustrated children’s book. At Pixelsmithstudios we love featuring innovative ideas and we just wanted to share some love. The book is based on an Afrikaans book for children.

Over the last couple of years we have seen quite a number of interesting games appear on the crowd funding website: Kickstarter. I like to go there now and then to check out the newest campaigns since I’m interested in the process of game development. The latest game to catch my eye is the locally developed Stasis, a dark, sci-fi, isometric adventure game set in space.
