The bright colors make it seem intended for a younger audience.
No, it is. It is intended for children! Well, it’s intended for children in the way Pixar movies are “intended for children.”
We wanted to make a game that kids could play with their parents, but also that kids would want to play without their parents and parents would want to play without their kids.
The game can get very “adult” but it depends on who’s playing it. But we figure that the baseline art and copy might as well be G-rated. We realized this a few months into development and it resulted in a brighter and more colorful pallet. And also the deletion of certain characters like the Succubus who have no role in a G-rated game.
We’re really happy with how it is now! The creative restriction of making it “for kids” actually made it a better game “for adults” as a byproduct, because now it’s brighter and clearer than it would’ve been otherwise.
