Escapist columnist Nathan Meunier talks to IGF 2009 winner Erik Svedang about his upcoming indie title Blueberry Garden.
Nathan Meunier says: "The garden is peaceful and serene, filled with edible fruits, lush flora and weird little party hat-wearing beasties that reproduce like crazy. Life also seems pretty good for the bird-beaked man in the bowler hat...until the water starts rising. Unlike his strange protagonist, Swedish game developer Erik Svedäng is in a situation that's far from dire. Last month he took home the Seumus McNally Grand Prize at this year's Independent Games Festival for Blueberry Garden - a whimsical and beautiful 2D platformer where you explore and interact with a delightful little world and attempt to keep from drowning in it.
