Need for feedBack!

:iconfrandali:Hi everyone!I need some feedbacks, by the "real people" about the graphics. All my friends and collaborators love me (because of my charming and funny way of being, not to mention my incredible artistic skills, of course! u_u ), so all the things I'm doing for Rolling Legend are wonderful, spectacular, the best!What I really need is raw judgement! So, what do you think about it, so far?

This has been the first draft of Rolling Legend's main poster! It's been a year by now...O_o Feeling old!

The pre-final layout of the main menù with the "sort-of-cinema-camera" buttons... Someone told me that the buttons are confusing and they not resemble cinema cameras... what do you think?

Once upon a time, in a beach far far away, a group of friends is having fun running in a race, but...
Please note that this is a comic strip, even though it has the game graphics, is a static image ^_^

Winter is over! at last! I don't know if it is the same for you, but for me it is a boost of energy! Go back to work is more sweet after a pause on the seaside without being dragged away by a burst of cold wind!

DevDiary – March 2014 Rolling Legend UNITY Evolution

Hi, this is Alessandro from CRYsoft Development. I’m the Project Manager of Rolling Legend and today I'd like to talk “DIRECTLY TO YOU” (Thanks Mr. Iwata) about the game main features, but before I want to show you the last masterpiece of our art director Francesca aka Frandalì.

Warball - Rolling Legend

Well, inspiration is almost clear. Isn’t it amazing?
This will be one of the available game worlds at launch of Rolling Legend. Something you saw over past months and more of these have yet to come, but I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Meanwhile we can speak about everything you sneaked on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and we can deeply explain the mechanics of the game itself.


First of all some QA time. To people who asked this, Rolling Legend is an unusual running platform game about marbles. Everyone just played marbles once in childhood at beach, or into alleys, with friends. You know all about the rules of the original game, now, forget everything you think to know. We took the the Marbles Game bringing it into a toon version world filled in with comic mischief, movies and yes, “madness”. This is the premise of Rolling Legend. I would now answer a specific question about the graphic: this is the graphic of the game, not just promotional artwork. EVERYTHING you will see, interact and play with, is original and fully hand drawn by Francesca Velenosi, our art director. Rolling Legend is an eyes joy so as static as running, outstanding on every smartphone and tablet. About this i can confirm right now, thanks to Unity cross-platforming, it will be released into universal app on yours mobile devices and tablet (relative to every OS store), translated: download once and play everywhere. Speaking around movies, somebody asked me which ones will be included. We have chosen some of the most impressive, imaginary catching, epic, blockbusters of last 30 years. Some you can just view right there, about the others, well, you will have to “..follow the White Rabbit” …

Bringing the conversation to its core, the more pressing question has been: why would i play Rolling Legend? Answer is quite simple. Because it’s a game unique in his genre and more of this because it’s really funny. We’re offering everybody a game by old style flavour that you’ll love to play and replay, a game where graphic art and music melt each other so deeply to become pure visual digital art.
In the end the success key of Rolling Legend is the fun itself.

Sixpack suiteLet’s speak about game mechanics. I dare say that the concept is really simple. You will control Johnny, the chameleonic marble guy, the hero of Rolling Legend, like into a classic platform game.  Your objective is to save all your friends and to do this you’ll have to gather into each world as many “Shiny” stars as you can to find out the “kidnapper”. Does it sound easy? Remember 2 things: you are a marble not the “famous jumping plumber” neither an “heroic hedgehog”, this mean you will roll far and away if you aren’t careful to gain speed, second, enemies won’t give you rest into all over your quest. One last little detail: you’ll have little time to do everything because this is a race with no rules, but Johnny is an hero after all, the hero of Rolling Legend, so it can do it.
Many of you asked about Johnny’s clothes and this is the deal about Johnny itself, his dresses. Everytime Johnny will save one of his friends he will gain a new set of clothes, sometimes shirt, sometimes hats, sometimes glasses etc.
Every set of clothes give him a new power, so Johnny will be able to transform itself in a meteor or jump higher, or even to stop time. You will able to combine up to 2 powers together and make Johnny more incredible to reach inaccesible before places to gain stars or wipe out hard enemies in front of your path in one glimpse, or gain crazy light speed, and so on.
There is only one way to find out where you can get Johnny: “… Keep experimenting my son”
Thanks for watching! <3

Rolling Legend Showfloor

Hi folks!
In the past months, you have seen parading down the red carpet Johnny's friends as you would expect in a great kermesse.
A group of pranksters who knows how to stand on stage with ease, in perfect Rollywood style. It is time to reveal another character, but before that, let me show you another time the members of the gang presented so far! ^_^

So, Give a warm welcome to Sheldos!
What can we say about him? Well he is a geek, but one of the good ones that always helps Johnny during the hour of computing. He loves science fiction movies and video games, don't call him Nerd. He also loves to hunt down the last edge technology to impress his friends. His favorite movie, needless to say it is "The Matrix".

Talking about Brad, the cool guy. Beloved by the Rolling team and… by the girls! How could it be otherwise, with a smile like that!?
Although Johnny often beats him in "coolness", he doesn't mind, they have always been great friends!
He loves the competition, and faces every challenge with a sporting spirit and with his phenomenal tuft always in order. But above all, he loves to be in the spotlight. His motto?
- I'm like a bad penny, I always turn up-

And now, guess what is his favourite movie ?!

Someone once said that "men prefer blondes..." and Johnny?!
Well, Marilyn is definitely, "the blonde" and even though she appreciates very much Brad's enjoyable company, Johnny doesn't gives up (lately he is even managed to get a date).
Marylin loves to spend hours preparing her make-up, she is a real admirer of nail art and literally adore Pilates. She's never been a great movie lover as much as she loves the television series, but after met Johnny she started to appreciate in a rather unexpected way, some movies definitely out of her standards...

Her favorite quote: "When something must exit, must come out!"


Cleave is the earthquake, so to speak, of the group.
With his eloquence would be able to sell refrigerators to Eskimos and convince Willy Wonka to launch himself on pretzel's bussiness... His favorite subject is astronomy and Johnny, jokingly calls him "the Starman", a thing of which he's very proud!

He loves cinema to madness, especially science fiction (and how could it be otherwise!), and often his imagination leads him to wander in galaxies far far away...
He talks in his sleep and, during camping, Johnny would swear to have hearing him mutter: "The coolest, my father is!"

Here's the "sweetest" character of the wacky team of Johnny, we're talking about none other than Donut!
Our fluffy hero is the first and dearest childhood friend of Johnny since the time of Ridge Racer School for Gifted Marbles. Donut has always been a playful and also quite lazy lad, and perhaps because of his attitude wasn't well accepted by the other students. One day, Johnny found him sitting on the edge of the training track while (very sadly) he was devouring dozens of glazed donuts. Johnny looked at him curiously and said something that sounded like this: "Hey, if you keep that way at the end, you'll roll away!" For a moment they stared at each other, both quite surprised, then the two of them burst into laughter. Since that day Donut became the shadow of Johnny, following him in all his reckless adventures. Surprisingly, Donut is a really brave. He loves his sweets and never misses a chance to eat as much as possible. He loves the cinemas halls with large comfortable seats, where you can sink and eat popcorn in peace.
His favorite movie? The Lord of the Rings.

The strange and unusual -,-BGCC^_^
The most sensitive and delicate friend of Johnny... She can become very touchy and cut your head off if you dare to offend the things she loves most: her roses and her friends...
So, beware, keep your hands away from the roses if you care that your head remains attached to the neck!

The veteran of battle tracks, Sven!
He doesn't like to talk about himself, he's the Action Marble, the silent one, the keeper!
He's in love with a Queen and he doesn't even know it...
His battlecry: "Less talk, more rolling!"

Here we are to present you "The Artist" of the craziest marble gang ever seen!
Guess what is J.J.'s greatest passion? But the music, of course! He may seem a bit eccentric, even crazy, but he's just a maverick who pays no attention to form, but only to the substance! The only gang of which is at the lead is "The Rollings", his unrestrained rock group! Get ready to go crazy over the notes of his piece de resistance:
"Keep Rolling!"
