Improving the visuals
We hope you had a Merry Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year! Santa came to us with lots of new goodies to improve the visuals of our game, so here is a quick recap of some of the things we've been working on during our time of silence these past few weeks.
Sky is the limit!
The default Unreal sky was nice and all, but we wanted something better, so we got ourselves a new sky with much better lighting and a perfect mood for our environment. If only we could get a new sky in real life to replace the cloudy one we've been having these past few days!
Thou shall float no more!
Something we've always had in plan but didn't have the chance to get to was to add distant surroundings, like hills and mountains, so our little game world wouldn't feel like it's floating in the air anymore. As a Christmas treat for us, we got ourselves some time to finally polish this part of the visuals and we love the results - here's hoping you will too!
It's what's on the inside that counts!
We know we haven't yet released screenshots of the cabin's interior, but now that we've improved it and added new details, we're happy to finally let you have a look! Below you can see the upstairs bedroom, so inviting you'd almost want to take a nap!
But it sure helps when the exterior is also beautiful!
And the biggest improvement we've made was on the cabin exterior. Again, something we always had in plan and now we've finally got around to doing it. Looking at it now makes us wonder how we lasted so long with the previous version!
These are a few of the things we've been working on up to this year's end. We still have a bunch of things to do, each of them making the game better and pretier. While we do get tingly feelings whenever we think we're getting closer and closer to the release, we still want to stay grounded and make sure we make a game we can be fully proud of!
Sorry for the upbeat tone in this post, it's just that we still have some Christmas joy in us and we're really happy with how the game is coming along! Thank you for reading and we wish you a Happy 2017!
