Moon Studios reached critical success last year with Ori and the Blind Forest, a title which took a very long 4 years to develop of a team size that doesn’t even come close to the size of most development studios. However, even though it was a long development process Ori and the Blind Forest was profitable after its first week of sales – that’s a success story and a half for an Indie studio.

Ori and the Blind Forest is a coming of age story where the player is put into the role of a forest spirit, who – over the course of his journey – has to find out more about his role within the world he’s living in. It is atmospheric, vivid and beautiful to play.

Below you can check out the work of concept artist Maximilian Degen who at the start of September 2011 was the only artist on the project. He was later joined by the likes of Johannes Figlhuber and Simon Kopp which their contributions to this amazing project can also be seen below.
