|2009.09.01||Robots and more|
In collaboration with STV we've made a small promo for the RoboDays robot festival.
See it on YouTube (slightly offensive so don't click if you can't take it)
We did match moving, effects, animation, and compositing. The 'water' is coming from a real fireman standing behind the actor, which was later composited out of the sequence. A little additional CG water spray was added afterwards to enhance the effect.
You may also find shortened versions of 3 of the 6 promos we did for Discovery Channel Nordic a short while ago on YouTube.

We also happened to stumble upon what must be the first ever fan art, very exciting! We are deeply honoured!
Want to know more? We sure do :)
|2009.07.22||News, news, news|
It's hard to believe it's been more than half a year since the last news post...But we haven't been idle.
We've recently completed a major outsourcing job for Vertic Portals which involved creating a complete virtual office in pre-rendered high-end 3D for a major software company. It turned out really great, and we're looking forward to the launch of the project.
We also developed special effects for Discovery Channel Nordic's summer campaign a short while ago. This included going on location with the crew, lots and lots of match-moving handheld footage, and modeling, rendering and animating effects for 6 seperate trailers. We finished everything on time, and according to specs, despite a very tight deadline. If you happen to live in the Nordic region (DK, SE, NO, FI), you can probably watch one of them right now on your local version of Discovery Channel.
Both projects were amongst the most fun outsourcing jobs we've done so far, thanks to the cool people working with us to make it all come together.
At the same time Youropa is progressing well, and we've recently hired a level designer (we're now 3 people) to help us make a great game.. We're really looking forward to completing this game :)
In between all the other things, we've spent a little time testing Away3D, a 3D engine for Flash/Flex. The result of the first test can be seen above. It's a pretty cool piece of kit, and although it isn't as powerful as dedicated 3D solutions, it does what it does exceptionally well. And running in Flash means that nearly anybody can run it. We've got a few more test in the works, so stay tuned if that sort of thing interests you.
That's it for now... we will try to post some news again before next summer :)

More old new screenshots from Youropa. Get a good look at them here!
Keep in mind they are all from the gameplay prototype shown at the Leipzig GC in August 2008, so they are nearly 4 months old by now :)
You should also take a look at a video from the same prototype.
There are more gameplay videos on YouTube!
Have a great Christmas and New Year! And stay tuned for more next year!

|2008.05.05||gile[s] 2.0 beta 2!|
frecle is pleased to announce that we are working on our first independent game production!
Youropa is a contemporary platform game with strong puzzle and adventure elements. High above the cities of Youropa, above the clouds, strange structures are floating on beams of light. These mysterious shapes are inhabited by two people; the Onesiders and the Youropeans.
To further develop the game we have been awarded DKK 300.000 (USD 59.000) in funding from the Nordic Game Program!
We won't spill all the beans at once, but we'll let you have a tiny sneak peak!
