What we did…
- Development Testing
Red Kite Games were asked to help develop an enhanced PC, PS4 and XB1 port of Cloudbuilt, a 3D action platformer originally released for PC.
The programming team were fully responsible for creating a brand new enhanced UI and HUD system based on the original Cloudbuilt game. This involved adapting the existing 2D code to support a full 3D interface with improved transitions, rotations and graphical effects.
Red Kite implemented all front-end menus, UI leaderboards (with the ability to sort and filter entries), tutorials, inventories and journal screens along with all in-game OSD’s and pause menus for each of the multiple game modes.
In addition to this Red Kite were tasked with implementing the UI, HUD and controller/keyboard remapping for the new ‘Rush Mode’, a completely unique gameplay experience developed specifically for Super Cloudbuilt.
Red Kite were also fully involved during the localisation and submission process across all platforms, providing key support and bug-fixing as and when required.
Originally launched on PC in 2014 as Cloudbuilt, the title has been completely remastered, reevaluating the game from the base mechanics up. The result stands as a definitive edition, making the experience more intuitive to new players, while adding increased depth and variation, allowing you to choose between taking your time to explore and focusing on blistering speeds and high scores.
Super Cloudbuilt puts you in the role of Demi, a young soldier who wakes up in the empty shell of a ruined building, in the center of a strange new world, disconnected from her old life and physical body. Confused and isolated, Demi pushes herself physically and mentally to overcome the obstacles of her new reality. Complete incredible feats of free-running and sharp shooting, using Demi’s rocket-powered exo-suit to leap and run through expansive worlds floating above a vast abyss. With each new challenge she overcomes Demi learns more, pushing her to piece together the future now laid out before her. Demi persists, traversing levels, allowing her to experience multiple endings: will Demi learn to understand and accept her new world, or question her reality and learn to defy it?
