Oscura

We here at CLF are very excited by the release of the iOS app Oscura - the brainchild of designer/animator/art director/visionary Ole Alfheim, who with the other members of the CLF team and the wonderful people at MTV worked on this game that has a focus on beautiful visuals, seamless animation and ultra-fun gameplay.

It started with Ole’s vision of the game: Oscura is about the feeling of trespassing onto territories you don’t belong in and the sense of excitement and exploration that brings. By using a minimalistic color palette and silhouette visuals, I wanted Oscura to be an abstract experience, letting the player project their own imagination and feelings into it. - Ole Alfheim
