Broken Rules

Broken Rules, the Vienna-based game development studio known for their award-winning games Old Man's Journey and Gibbon: Beyond the Trees, became a Krita sponsor earlier this year.

Known for their thoughful and candid approach to game making it comes as no surprise that their Co-Founder and Creative Director Clemens Scott has a strong stance on software projects:

"In a world full of subscription services, forced updates, feature bloat and vendor lock-ins, it's refreshing to see that alternatives are cropping up. Projects such as Blender have proven that free, open-source software can reach industry-grade levels of quality and provide a viable alternative to the status quo. I've been using Krita on a regular basis for the past two years and I would love to see it become as ubiquituous as its corporate competitors."

Old Man's Journey was the Apple Design Award Winner 2017 and iPad Game of the Year 2017.

Very bright painting of a gibbon moving from a lush green forest on the left to a fiery red area on the right. Text above the gibbon: "Gibbon: Beyond the Tree".

Gibbon: Beyond the tree won the Apple Design Award in 2022 in the category Social Impact.

Clemens used Krita mainly for personal projects, such as various illustrations throughout his memex, but also for sketching out ideas on level designs for Gibbon: Beyond the Trees, which you can find on his personal page as well.

We appreciate their support and contribution to keeping Krita going strong!
