D-Pad Studio, creators of the long-awaited upcoming game OwlBoy, took a break from making that game this past summer. How did they spend their vacation? They made another game, of course. They made Savant: Ascent, a shooter based on the music and artwork of electronic musician Savant, whom they have collaborated with before.
Though summer may be officially over, Savant: Ascent is not done yet. D-Pad Studio is still working on making the game better for its official public release to the mobile market en masse. However, for the intrepid, Savant: Ascent is available now via Humble for PC and for Android, with a Google Play release scheduled in the future.
I got Jo-Remi and Simon from D-Pad Studio to chat about the game while I played it, discussing how they made the game work on mobile, and what they have planned for it in the near future, as part of our Video of the Day series.
