Fromto

Fromto is a (horrible, childish) multiplayer platformer ‘racing’ game with insane game track building. Modify the track together as you play. Ad ramps, moving platforms, traps and more. You can even drill your way through the landscape to make your way. Then race the track in turn. Play with up to four friends in this action packed living playground.

Childish…?

The art in Fromto is partially made by my children. (4-and 1-year-old). This visual content created by myself is made with the same swift and directness. The art is raw, unpolished and authentic.  The game wants to introduce a new fresh super expressive ugly and chaotic art style to games. The art style of FromTo is used to emphasize the ‘childish’ gameplay.

Fromto  is a game by Studio Erikson currently in development. The game will first be released for PC. Other platforms/consoles will follow.

The game will offer:

  • Online multiplayer (up to 4 players).
  • Local multiplayer; party game and LAN (up to 4 players).

  • Extreme tuneable gameplay.
  • Many many track parts and items.
  • Lots of different cars.
  • Achievements.
  • Nifty secrets…
  • Level editor.

Inspiration

The game, Fromto is inspired by a drawing which I made as a child. In the drawing you follow a small race car through a crazy race track overcoming all sorts of dangerous obstacles. Like a platformer game drawn on one sheet of paper.

Observing the way, my own children play shows me how good and fun games are designed. They can use anything to play. I translate this into my game so players experience the same freedom to play.

In relation to inspiring games FromTo could be described as ‘Ultimate Chicken Horse on wheels meets Worms’ or ‘Super Mario Maker meets Trackmania’.
