We're excited to share that Brunette Games CCO Lisa Brunette's latest piece for ironSource LevelUp is live! The Top 5 Mistakes Game Mystery Writers Make - and How to Avoid Them covers everything from how to develop your characters with a light hand to how to keep from revealing too much too soon, or too little too late. With hundreds of mystery game titles to her credit, not to mention a bestselling novel series in the genre, Brunette's expertise is tried-and-true:
To avoid the pitfalls of character design, don't be afraid to torture your good guys, or to lend a sympathetic ear to your crooks. We'll feel your hero's win all the more if she's had to prevail against her own worst judgment in order to get there. And a villain is all the more diabolical for her charm.
Brunette Games is proud to announce the release of the fantasy idle RPG, Magnum Quest. Tuyoo came to us with the world and character design, including the truly impressive 3D art. We re-wrote the character descriptions to localize them for a North American audience. We had the opportunity to work on a large number of characters, the majority of which have been released! I led our work for Tuyoo, with Amanda VanNierop handling the bulk of the characters as her very first project with us back in the winter of 2020. Dexter Woltman and Lisa Brunette also contributed.
