Elephant Rave (2008)
Elephant Rave is the birth of the Blue Elephant. I had the idea to produce the elephant character after an internet argument erupted on my personal website. I posted the word "ELEPHANT" and suddenly all the tension was broken. It was a weird moment, an entire flame-war dissolved by a single word. The website thought I had a thing for elephants. I like elephants, so I backed it up with a game.
During a playoff basketball game on television I was bored. I opened up my 13" computer and started a very small game (I worked with the game on-screen the entire time, and since the screen wasn't huge I didn't have a lot of space). After about 4 hours Elephant Rave was born. It was way silly and different than anything I made before, and soon became a trademark style that resonates through everything I do.
Elephant Rave was picked up by news organizations like Joystiq and reached success on sites like Kongregate and Newgrounds. It was a weird project with an even weirder response.
The game wasn't originally supposed to be a rhythm game. It just magically lined up with the music that was picked for the game. Total accident.
