Description

The aim of Sherpa Reynolds is to create projects ‘with a soul’, a personality that can be felt in every aspect, whatever form they may take.

History

The Beginning

Sherpa Reynolds started life as a team of 5 in the video game competition Dare To Be Digital, back in 2008. An unorthodox team (there were no natural programmers), set about creating a gesture based audio game for the Wii. Audio was the main force behind the game and drove all of the visual elements as well as gameplay. Although not shortlisted for an award, many people appreciated our unusual approach, choosing to not just focus on entertainment but seeing how the technology could be used as a fun tool, something people can play/use to improve their skill and understanding of music. As such we were invited to a number of developers including Channel 4 (who were interested in educational games at the time), to see if it could be expanded into something more substantial. For a number of reasons this didn't quite work out, and that game 'immix' represents the last the team of 5 worked on together. In the intervening years a number of small prototypes and alternative projects were created by various members from that team, with one official release in 'thingSOUP' being a collaboration between David McNab and Joe Baggaley.

The Present

There is currently one major project in the works in the form of ‘Fights Of Fancy’. This is a collaboration between; David McNab (original member), and Dan Farley (musician/composer). There are a number of parts to the project and they will slowly be released over the coming year (2018-2019). As a whole this is the most ambitious and refined project to date and will look to set a precedent for all future projects, both in scope, and in the design elements at it’s core.

The Future

In time it is hoped that a reputation for creating high-quality, immersive interactive experiences will grow, encouraging more people to get involved. In general ’Sherpa Reynolds’ is now more of a platform, something people can come together and put out work under. Hopefully, with the right people involved, it will become both a trusted and a respected one.There are many plans for the direction sherpa reynolds can take, some great, others more modest. Interactive entertainment will always be at the core, but other forms of entertainment will be used should they offer a way to enhance/expand a particular project.
