Project Heera creator Tanmay Chinchkar has been selected as the Indian participant for the unique Pixel Heart initiative.
Pixel Heart is a feature-length documentary that will focus on six game developers from six countries, who will participate in a game jam that will result in the creation of 12 new games.
Chinchkar joins Mark Healey (Little Big Planet) from the UK, Robin Hunicke (Journey) from the USA, Eyram Tawia (Africa’s Legends) from Ghana, Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Rez, Lumines, Child of Eden) from Japan, and Edmundo Bordeu (Rock of Ages, Zeno Clash) from Chile.
The Pixel Heart Game Jam will take place over 48 hours in Paris, with a hundred game developers split up into 12 teams. The games created will be based on six items given by the six aforementioned creators, who will also participate and assist in the jam themselves.
While Pixel Heart does sound like an interesting initiative, whether or not it actually happens will depend on the success of its crowd-funding campaign. It’s currently received just under €10,000 of its €60,000 goal, with a week to go.
