Hotel Luma

Client:   Ziggy Naumann
Release:   September 2011

The beautiful world of Katamaro is in peril. Its six gods have fallen asleep because of all their hard work and the world is left uncared-for. As the owner of Hotel Luma, it’s your job to earn enough Luma coins and wake up the gods from their magical slumber.

Hotel Luma is a webgame for ages 5 – 7. The Flash-based game was designed by Ziggy Naumann as his graduation project. It was also nominated in the Game Development Rally 2009.

For inspiration, I was given the titles and names of several Japanese games and composers. Among these were Mario Galaxy (Koji Kondo, Hajime Wakai) and Okami (Masami Ueda, Hiroshi Yamaguchi)
