Happy New Stuff !
Hope everyone had a great chrismas holidays, and i wish you all a creative and perfect year 2018 !
New year, new stuff, but also the end of somes projects that i loved in this festive season, let's go for it !
End of the asset wars
The past month we were supposed to work on our own to finish the exiting projects we were working on for the past two weeks i already talked about !
The situation was tense because i had to face many problems and i was really on my own trying to find the solutions, with the deadline coming closer and closer !
Thanks god i had my two game dev to help me with ideas or solutions =)
I still had a lot of work on Hugues's project, and as i already talked so much about it, i will leave you with all the images of the last assets i did, including grounds, skys, branches, bushes, plants and animals!
Here are all the moody skyes and grounds :
I also did the trees that the little nutzy will climb on, but the tree trunk separated from the branches ! here are the images :
Some layers of leaves to fill out the trees :
And obviously, assets of plants and stuff to increase the idea of a deep forest !
To help you imagine what it could look like, i made a little composition with all the assets to help me figure out the colors and shapes :
and the enemies :
Hugues also wanted some scenes for the end of the four levels, i was free to imagine what i wanted, and i endend up having so much fun and creating cute family scenes :
So, here is are all my works for the last two weeks of december for the Game Winter Is Coming ! it was very intense, but sooo interesting and full featured, thanks Hugues for your trust :)
Valentin also needed some stuff for his game, that gave both of us headaches , he wanted animated frames with transparency to create an arcade effet for his mini-games screen. I tried and tried so many times, doing the same things over and over to find a solution, and finally , after days of researche, we achieved our goal !
I will also thank Valentin for his help patience and trust, of course, that was all new and sometimes hard, but very pleasant to do :)
This week, it was all about a new world for me : ergonomy of games. of course it interests me when i play, but i never had to work on this thing, EVER ! So it was a total discovery of the laws and the important things to remember to target a demographic and find solutions !
I chose to work on the game Battle for wesnoth that i personaly find absolutely atrocious (no more, no less!)
So i ended up creating two models for new gamers that want to try the game and to help them understanding all the information of a complex strategy game !
On both of the models, i chose to group four types of informations together !
The resources : including gold, maintenance costs, incomes, units number, and villages number !
The temporal indications : the round numbers, time left to play, and the moment of the day
The spacial indications : the map, the X/Y positioning and the fields' type
The units information including the image of the unit you have selected, and also all of its information(life, level, etc)
So, that's it for today's article Have a great week everybody !
