Chibig has taken to Kickstarter for the funding for developing their new project, so I got in touch with them to talk about Summer in Mara. Come check it out!
PS4Blog: Good morning! Thank you for joining us today. Could you please help us get started by telling our readers a bit about yourself and your work?
We are Chibig, an indie game studio located in sunny Valencia, Spain. We have been making video games since 2015. Our two first releases, Tiny Planet and Ankora, were released back in 2016 for iOS and Android, and now they have been played by over 3 million people!
After that, we spent a year making Deiland, our first game for PC and PS4. It launched in 2018, and it has been a great success for us. We’re now making Summer in Mara, a new summer adventure about taking care of your own island and explore the ocean with your boat.
We are really happy about our community and the people who constantly tell us how much they love Deiland and our universe. For us, that’s the best part of making games.
We’ll be working on a review for Deiland on PlayStation 4, so we got in touch with Spanish indie team Chibig to talk about the game’s development and path to releasing on Sony’s home console.
PS4Blog: Welcome to PS4Blog.net. Could you please introduce yourself to our readers and tell them a bit about your work?
Thank you for having me, PS4Blog.net!
My name is Abraham Cozar Riera, and I’m an entrepreneur from Valencia who founded Chibig back in 2015 to focus on my passion for making video games. Chibig is a small studio where there are three of us working on games. Over the last couple of years, I’ve had the luck of working along with other professionals in the field such as Miriam Barea, Vicente Molina, Paco Mitos and Rafa Gimenez. I take care of the direction, design, and development of the game while my coworkers handle the art side of things.
We started as a studio making mobile games, and up to 2017 we have released 11 games and apps. We are now focused on the final development phase and launch for Deiland, our first video game for PlayStation 4.
