Allting har ett slut

I torsdags, den femtonde juni, var min sista dag på Cortopia Studios. Jag absolut älskade teamet och mitt jobb men livet händer och allting är inte menat att va. Så nu är jag ute på jakt efter ett jobb igen. Livet är så konstigt ibland, ena dagen har man en stabilitet och rutiner och dagen efter har en dörr stängts och en miljon andra dörrar öppnats. Jag är ännu en gång i en sån situation där jag frågar mig själv […]

Summertime 3D-fun The conclusion

After laying around on ice for a long while after the modeling was wrapped up a number of months ago I finally got back to it and gave it some well-needed UV:s and textures! The normal map took a couple of rebakes but I found a compromise between either too hard edges or having gradients in my normal map that took care of some annoying artifacts (which probably could have been avoided by paying closer attention to topology and especially […]

I detta blogginlägg tänkte jag skriva om hur spelet ligger till en veckan innan GGC och vilka förändringar som vi har gjort i designen. Vi har ändrat på craftingensystemet, grundtanken var att spelaren skulle kunna byta mellan olika ”recept” för att bygga olika proteser och dessa olika proteser behövdes sätt på rätt skada kroppsdel för att fungera. Eftersom det är så lite tid kvar och vi har fortfarande ingen vinstskärm eller tutorial nivå till GGC väljer vi att satsa på […]

Hit detection

Welcome back to Causality!
Elevator Pitch – “Causality is an action RPG game where you travel through a dungeon to challenge yourself against Monsters. We have a safe area for testing your abilities then a room with a bossfight where your skills are tested. Our target audience is people who likes to challenge their pattern recognition and reaction skills.”
 
This week i’m going to focus on how I worked and implemented the hit detection on the player’s weapon. The way we did […]

Dimension swap

Welcome to Causality!
My name is Robin Berneby and I’m a lead Programmer for the team Yggdrasil working on the design concept Causality in Unity.
Causality is an Action RPG viewed from a third person’s perspective that is focused on adventuring and fighting inside a dungeon environment.
The player controls his character and is able to use a few basic attacks and also additional abilities and will face challenging monsters where you have to read and understand them to win. Causality take place […]

Week six of Eyes Align: The final post

In this post I will shortly discuss the thumbnail for eyes align, as well as the title page.
TITLE PAGE: ”NOT TOO FLASHY BUT ALSO NOT BORING.” ”MAKE IT RETRO.” ”NO, MAKE IT IN THE SAME STYLE AS THE REST OF THE GAME.”
As the subheader not so subtly alludes to the ideas were plentiful and nothing was decided. I made three basic concepts for the title page which were then intended to be adjusted to siut the preferance of the group.

Week five of Eyes Align: Git gud

At this point, which was in fact not at all week five, I was actually starting to create some pretty decent backgrounds. I was more or less figuring out the lighting, texturing, composing.

I was using the texture brushes sparingly and in a far less obtrusive way. The spaces also seemed far less empty and soulless. I like these three paintings. I’m still no Da Vinci but in my own opinion the difference between these four and my earliest drawings is […]

Week four on Eyes Align: Logos OR eyeballs eyeballs eyeballs everywhere!

We were reminded that our game was in need of a logo and I, at this point fairly tired of drawing backgrounds and starting to worry about my mental state, volunteered to design it. We already had the title: Eyes Align and so I thought it only made sense to have a logo with an eye in it. I started out with a fairly unimaginative stylized eye:

then I made it a bit snazzier:

That didn’t really work as a logo though and we […]
