Group Info

Fledgling game and multimedia production group, focusing on the audio-visual with a dash of interactivity!

Should I be a Member or Watcher?
Members: Members should contribute ideas, concept art, music, writing, anything! The more you contribute, the better for the overall project :)
Watchers: Too busy with life? Just want to see the final product? Or the occasional beta test? Watching will be for you ;D


In order to keep our products the highest quality possible, the group is essentially mainly for the core team members. If I find members who constantly contribute to make our project grow then if things go well, welcome to the official team! :p. Appropriate credit will be given too ^ ^.
While working on my "Hungry Whispers" game project, I wanted to give back to the dA community and focus on developing it past the beta teaser demo to a full version due to the overwhelming positive responses. By creating this group, I aim to expose this project for further testing, feedback and more members.

I hope to not only focus on game development but to also incorporate a range of creative mediums including the use of music/sound, interactivity as well as the visual. All artistic/creative contributions are welcome to help the current project grow!

The original TEAM WASABI members (but not the Counter-Strike group)!







A fellow game and/or multimedia development group? Affiliation is always welcome :)


A lot has happened since our last update and many changes have taken place.

Mainly the project lead had to step back due to life and take a break to focus on other things. In that break, data was reviewed, game design plans were tweaked and project foundations were solidified.

The project has now entered a new era. JDWasabi Studios is now known as Jade-Wasabi Studios, and Hungry Whispers shall live on under that banner.

For those (still) interested in seeing Hungry Whispers become a thing, check out our official social media here:


Lastly, a huge thanks for the support and joining us on this eye opening journey. Here's to kicking ass and making things a reality!

Phew! Now that the craziness of Readcon is over and that everyone's had a little break you're probably wondering what we're currently doing!

Achievement Update!

First up, it is a great honour that one of our first members of Team Wasabi is the featured artist in the 'Pure Nintendo' magazine! Not only that, Hungry Whispers has been mentioned and it's great to see Project Whispers help jump start wonderful opportunities.  Congrats again Lubrian!

Also some of you may / may not know that I have been working with Grimm Bros for just over a year now writing their game soundtrack! A career aspiration that I've been working towards since I was a kid. Now we're attending Gamescom featuring our game Dragon Fin Soup! It's my first gig and boy is it big.  I wouldn't be in this wonderful position if it weren't for the amazing work of the original Team.  I am determined to see this project through because I'm not going to say no to the potential opportunities this project offers ;D.

Calling new members!

Since my time is very limited I am stepping down in the amount of duties I currently do with this project. So if anyone out there reading this is wanting a project to work on for portfolio purposes do get in touch!

Our main areas are:
• Art
• 3D Modelling
• Animation
• Writing
• Music /Sound design
• Programming
• Game design

But that doesn't mean that I'll exclude other areas like film, acting or voice acting.  I found that pulling off a successful collaboration is like gold dust in your portfolio which is a win-win situation if you ask me!

Hit me up or feel free to pass on my details if you know anyone who's interested ^ ^.  
dA = JDWasabi
Twitter = JDWasabi
email = jadepl[at} (replace [at} with @)!

Thanks again for the continued support everyone!

Meanwhile, the team is working on refining some sprites. © :iconninjaninaiii:

Hi! Sorry for the late reply, I've been offline for a bit due to juggling life ^ ^;;

Yep! Combining/using items to figure out a situation, much like Hotel Dusk, Broken Sword, Phoenix Wright and the Monkey Island games :).

Brilliant! Feel free to join in our group discussions/meetings. We meet every Tuesday and/or Wednesdays at 8pm UK time. Where are you globally based might I ask? Thanks for the interest :)

Hey just a small suggestion I hear you want everyone to gather and bounce ideas off one another so why not create a chatroom here on DA? you can put a link in the group and post a schedule for meetings and what not that way we can all conveniently be in one place together!@ v @
JDWasabi Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
ps let me know when you advertise JDWasabi Studios on Experimental Manga so that I can advertise here in return :D
xXRen-AvlisXx Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Sure thing I'll get right to doing that! ^^
JDWasabi Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome sauce! :D
JDWasabi Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Sounds great! Unfortunately I'm not sure how to work dA chat @_@! Do you know how to? How would you feel if you'd look after dA chat for me? XDD

I've also started up a google group thing so I'll make a blog about it in a moment. We originally started off with a blog spot account which was amazing to use for a small team however it has a limit of 10 people to write blog posts so I've been trying to find alternatives. I'll have both the google group and dA chat running at the same time to make this project as accessible as possible for everyone, so thank you again! :)

I'll help in any way I can
