When This Developer Played Their Own Game They Made Studio Ghibli Stuff

UemeU (which stands for You-Me-You) is an interactive sandbox game where you have tools to create a world or a simple video game. During GDC, we met Omnigon Games, a team started by avid Minecraft players and saw a platforming game made with UemeU. Players can also create aesthetic pieces and internally the team has play sessions where they recreate worlds like South Park…




… and Studio Ghibli. These models are kind of like prefabs, a preset group of objects with scripts attached to them, and if you see a model in UemeU you can copy it and use it in your game. Totoro can’t be a playable character though since UemeU has an avatar system, but conceptually you could make a game where you jump over waves of Totoros.


UemeU is in public alpha and playable now. The game is getting overhauled with a new avatar system and it looks like, similar to Minecraft, Omnigon Games will continue to build the game as the community plays it.

    Anyway, this reminds me of RPG maker.

    So… so that means I can make a world that is equal parts Aselia and other Tales worlds, Gensokyo of the Touhou Project games, the Pokemon world and Equestria of the My Little Pony world… ?

    I… I think I need to try out this game.
