Headup rejects to sell their party game "Fromto" after receiving community threads
After announcing to sell their multiplayer party game Fromto to the Museum of Modern Art a few days ago, Headup now announced that they will circle back. After thousands of angry emails, all the employers cars were painted white over night and they nearly got attacked with pitchforks and torches. "We want to play that hilarious game at home by any means. We don't want to have to go into a museum!", was the main statement of those people.
FIRST MEDIA AWARDS
On PAX East 2019, where Fromto was presented to the public for the first time, Marooners Rock awarded the game with their "Team Choice Award" and it received "Most Charming Game of Show" by Indie Hangover.
This is not an April joke by the way, see below:
Fromto is still in development by the contemporary artist Erik Habets. To preserve the essence of the initial idea he invited two very special people to join his project; his own children Niki (5) and Joep (2). Erikson’s ‘clumsy’ drawing style fits in perfectly. The whole game has been drawn by hand multiple times to make it feel alive. According to Erikson, the game in fact became alive: “In Fromto many things happen I didn’t put in there intentionally. Fromto surprises me, every time I play it.”
