Legacy Interactive Projects
Global Mechanic has been working in the digital interactive space for over ten years. We'll always be animators, but we're also gamers. It just made sense as a trajectory from our more traditional animation roots. In 2010 Sir Bit was born, an 8 bit retro dungeon-crawler multi-level quest game. That was fun, we thought, but what about story and design? Our answer: Sweet Story, an interactive e-book with stunning visuals and fun animated bits.
Sweet Story is written by Jono Howard and illustrated by François-Marc Baillet. It's a simple story of a childhood obsession with dessert, told in beautiful painted scenes. Animation is all sprite-based, brought to life with unexpected interaction patterns and crazy animation. Released as a native iOS app.
