Proun is a strange racing game in a world of geometric objects and large coloured surfaces. You avoid obstacles by rotating around a cable in order to gain as much speed as possible. There is no up or down; there is only the cable to which you are attached. Proun is a unique game that was inspired by early 20 th century abstract artists like Kandinsky, El Lissitzky and Mondriaan. Proun has already been exhibited in several modern art museums and is now finally ready to be released on PC!
About Joost van Dongen
Joost van Dongen is a Dutch indie game creator, who has been working on Proun in his spare time for almost six years now, and is really proud that this work of love is finally nearing completion. In his daily life, Joost is lead programmer and co-founder of Ronimo Games, the game development studio that recently announced the multiplayer craziness of Awesomenauts (Xbox360/PS3). Before that, Ronimo created the award winning side-scrolling strategy game Swords&Soldiers (PS3/Wii/PC/Mac/iPhone/iPad). When they were still students, Ronimo also made the original version of the colourful painting extravaganza De Blob. Proun, however, is a solo project that is developed by Joost in the weekends and evenings. Want to know more about Joost's adventures as a game developer?
