March Magic!

Spellbound_pasdedeux_800p.png

Spring cleaning has begun. Out with the old and in with the new. We're sifting through everything in our plans, projects, servers and connections and working on a better, faster, more fantastic version of Big Top Ballet Inc.

It's a little bit of magic cleaning up and letting go. Acknowledging what has worked, what has failed  and what didn't get enough 'magic' otherwise known in studio terms as 'productive attention'. 

Things that we're happy with: Google Cloud and App Engine for our online games, Unity for Game Development, Adobe and Autodesk for Game Asset creation, Evernote for project notes and task management and although we haven't completely integrated, Gamesparks looks promising.  

Some changes that we're excited about include: a switch to G Suite services, full domain transfer to Squarespace.com (Thank you, Keanu Reeves! ), and perhaps the biggest change is our Spring move to New York City and becoming an American company. Some of the  behind the scenes magic that we wanted to share.

Waltz of the Flowers Nutcracker Debut

We're counting closer to December 1st, 2016. Just 3 days for the Waltz of the Flowers to be available to play free online and as a paid download from the AppStore and Google Play.

This is Version 0.1 of The Nutcracker by Big Top Ballet. We borrowed game play from Big Top Ballet's original game. Doing away with the paper doll costume tabs and adding bonus points for dressing a ballerina all in one colour costume and matching costume colour to changes in snowflakes.

Get the app while you can- this is a limited seasonal release where it is only available between December 1st, 2016 and January 12, 2017. Yearly this will be our Nutcracker launch dates where each year we work to expand the tile and build content for emerging Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality platforms.

We hope you enjoy! Happy Holidays and best wishes for a fruitful New Year!

The Nutcracker: Drosselmeyer's Gift

We're very excited to be producing The Nutcracker as a seasonal game title. For 2016 - Game Play will be centred on The Waltz of the Flowers and we will be sharing links to the WebGL version and Mobile versions for iOS and Android in time for this coming holiday season.

For now we are sharing some promotional posters featuring the third gift reimagined. If you are familiar with the Nutcracker story, Drosselmeyer brings to Clara 3 gifts. The third of which is a Nutcracker Doll. As is plain to see from the artwork above...we have taken artistic license to re-imagine the doll for 2016.  

The Nutcracker by Big Top Ballet!

We are counting down to the first winter frost, when we will unveil Big Top Ballet's seasonal release inspired by The Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky. Each year we will build on the prior year's work as part of our game play repertoire. 

Again our team is enormously privileged to work with the very talented Ill-Esha, who has worked on a custom composition for the 'Waltz of the Flowers' to debut our annual winter launch.
