What is BOA (Black Oasis Dot Art)? Well, it is an indie company created by me Chris Johnson. As a solo developer, I spend what ever time I have left during the week to work on this site as much as I can. Which isn’t a whole lot of time as I still work full time to keep the lights on. Hopefully this will change in time and content on this blog page will improve over the years to come. For now the focus is pushing out richly detailed comics and small indie games that I hope provide some means of entertainment. I do enjoy the freedom of creativity that I get while working indie game development on my own.
Before I started this page and became an indie developer, I was more of a freelance artist that also loved 3d and animation. Eventually, I found myself drawn to working and importing models into game engines and trying to make things happen. From there, you can see I’ve gotten caught up in the whole thrill of making and releasing digital content. Thankfully, creating an indie comic keeps me rooted in more of my traditional 2d artwork that I still do enjoy.
So, hopefully, this explains some of my madness on this page. Also hoping some of the content presented here will make sense in time as the stories concerning these projects and concepts unfold and make their release.

SkyTec Racing is an espionage game that takes place in a new age of conscious technology coming soon!
Here is a Teaser Trailer for the upcoming game.
Development is still in the early stages but none the less, I would like to share some of what is happening with this project. For the most part, it will be a game where you will need to accomplish tasks concerning the delivery of digital goods in the real world off grid. AI has pretty much taken over the web. Many factions have sprung up both human and artificial. All with different agendas and reason for the procurement of intellectual properties at a high value.
As a driver, you have to overcome different obstacles in different environments to infiltrate, deliver, protect, and save world changing critical data.
The story takes place in a distant future here on earth in a diminished population where you will see abandoned but serene landscapes. Its a place of longing beauty and an aspiring monument of historical achievement from different minds all over the globe.
StarLight, an Elite Class Pilot. It is you who has been selected to take up the challenge in removing a difficult stronghold. It has taken root through out the galaxy hidden in different nebulas. The infestation is widespread and the call for the elite has been sent out, but the answer to the call has been few. For this reason, pilots will be entering into known hostile territories alone. Know that for all who answer, their names are written across the stars of destiny!
Different worlds have been over run and seized by an unknown entity named Terminus. For ages unknown, this foe has been seeking to consume everything in the cosmos for complete dominance. This disaster has changed and ruined the lives of many inhabitants for a millenia.
Assume the role StarLight to bring hope back into the universe and bring an end to Terminus the Foe!
About this game:
This is an action shooting game using a third party perspective from behind the vessel. It was given a premise of a shoot’em up arcade action game but with a 3d perspective. The controls are built around 5 DOF (degrees of freedom) for great maneuverability in a zero gravity environment. At present, there are 11 stages total to explore that are all accessible at the start of the game. There will be an additional update with more challenges at a later time.
There are two space fighters although they are not directly accessible to the player in the game. Through out the main concept of the game the player will have command of the Black Dove which is a piloted fighter about the size of a jet fighter or space pod. White Dove will be featured in the upcoming OnSlaught gameplay that will feature infinite bosses and enemies for a high score campaign during gameplay.
Here is the original Dove concept.
Portraits and Logo Work.
Also, there are some other Fighter Concepts that did not make it in the game. Here are some of the others here.
And there was a gun for the pilot. Was going to have a pilot floating around in tight areas shooting enemies where the ship couldn’t reach. But fleshing it out was taking longer than I would have liked. So, I instead stuck with just a fighter clearing the area.
Just about everything you see on this site for my games was done using Blender3d software. I was also able to render some of the worlds background in the game using Blender as well. Here are a few of the precepts.
