Is this the ultimate iOS fantasy?

June 7, 2012 in Games (E)

[] London, United Kingdom - Big Ideas Digital today is proud to announce the new "Fantasy Movies" DLC for their successful iOS app "Say What You See: The Collection". Painted by ex-Rare concept artist Ryan Firchau, players will be relieved to discover that they won't have to travel to Mordor and lob their phones into Mount Doom to play the new content - they can just download it from within the app.

Since it's release in November 2010, Say What You See: The Collection(TM), has been downloaded over 1 million times from the app store on iPhone, iPod and iPad devices. The free-to-download app asks users to unravel the movie titles and pop star names that are hidden as rebus puzzles in a series of beautifully hand-painted scenes (called iCanvases).

Firchau's Fantasy art is both striking and playful, and his OAP Barbarians and campervan-driving demons feels like Frank Frazetta having a crack at drawing a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. Before creating the "Fantasy Movies" iCanvas for Say What You See: The Collection(TM), Ryan worked at Rare, the software house behind such hits as Goldeneye, Conker's Bad Fur Day and the Banjo Kazooie series.

"I really enjoyed working on this piece for Say What You See: The Collection(TM)" Says Firchau. "It's darkly humorous, and they gave me a lot of freedom. I've very much brought a bit of the quirky Rare house-style to this work, although this is perhaps darker than anything they would do. I also hear that Harry Potter's Tom Felton (who tweeted that he was "... very much addicted to Say What You See") is a fan, so it'll be interesting to see what he makes of the Harry Potter related puzzles I've drawn..."
