Hey everyone! This is going to be a quick little update to tell you all what’s been happening.
We’ve all been working very hard since the last blog update. We’re working towards putting out our first ‘proper’ gameplay video, and we’re hoping to have it done and uploaded fairly soon so keep an eye out!
Anyway, there’s a lot I could tell you guys about features we’ve added and all that but a lot of them are going to be in the upcoming video, so instead I’m just going to gather some tweets the team have been putting out there regarding the game/video so they’re all in one place. 🙂
Regarding the very last tweet, Bart made an awesome camera feature that allows us to create awesome, cinematic shots. It’s incredibly easy to use and will be in in-game feature that anyone can mess with! (Will most likely require the user to be an admin or something, we don’t know those super fine details yet. 😉 )
Over the past few weeks we’ve been working on shadows and lighting to work alongside our new village.
We’ve also worked on some concept biomes and other fun stuff, so here’s some images on what we have so far! 🙂
The fairy biome could possibly have little light orbs floating around, we have a few other ideas we want to try and this is only the start of it all 🙂
Thanks for reading,
It’s been a while since my last update, sorry about that.
I’ve been working on a variety of things, some of them interesting, some boring and a lot of them a secret ;D
But! I wanted to update you all on some of the new character hairstyles, because I’m quite proud of them 🙂
I’ll be posting more about character customisation soon, I’ll leave you with a sneak peek though!
So if you caught my stream this week you’ll know I’ve spent most of the past few days working on tree designs.
I decided to hand pick my favourites and showcase them here in all splendour for all to see.
The crazy shapes and curves were inspired by bonsai trees (If you image search that you’ll see what I mean)
I’d really like to continue on this path making even more unique designs to make the Staxel world look really beautiful. (That is my job after all)
This is a small update as, well, all I can really say is ‘Check out these awesome trees!’ ~SteampunkStein
