Animating

As last week came to its end I finished up the scenes that we were going to have as a narrative in the beginning of the game. In my previous post there is a more thorough description of what is going on in the scenes and how I created them. Here is the end result:

(When adding these scenes into the game we will also add a narrative text and possibly some atmospheric music.)

Story scenes

For this week, I have kept on creating scenes for ”Betulla’’ (me and my group will come up with a better name for the game shortly, no worries).  The scenes are supposed to be in the beginning of the game as an introduction together with text and a panoramic animation as a narrative to further spice up the gameplay. What we have thought out to happen in those scenes is shown below on a few sketches made by our game designer:

Assets & Scenes

During this week, I have been continuing with creating the graphics for my group’s game that we now call ‘’Betulla’’.
First of all, I want to say that I feel like this week has been way less productive to me, compared to all of the other previous weeks since I so far have been sick and have not spent much time at all with my group.
After finishing the background last week, I am now working on some smaller projects, like creating […]

Background in the making

For the two last weeks, I have been creating the background for a game called ”Crown of Creation” that I have been developing together with my group.
The background that I was to make is supposed to be set where the player operates in the game, which is the inside of a crystal tree. What I needed to convey for the inside background art was a stone-material on the edges that would resemble the bark, and crystal material on the inside, kind of […]
