Colour Pallets

Brayden Beavis

584 views

 

In the early stages of design the team failed to outline a clear and concise colour palette to work within. Essentially this allowed for each member of the design team to interpret the in game environments however they wished, it also meant that during the phase of asset creation, the assets were inconsistent and often contrasting. It was only when the assets had come together that this was realised and the team addressed it immediately, focusing on steel greys for the structure of the HUB world with touches of blue to compliment the Colonists uniform. At this point however, it meant creating new renditions of the assets that work in unison of each other. Mainly it was minor issues that were easily fixable such as panel details or table top colours, however one area in particular was quite problematic. When I designed the Volcanic environment, I had a significantly different idea to the other designers, this resulted in spending several hours editing the colour schemes instead of focusing on other work that had to be done at that time. Luckily not too much backtracking had to be done as the problem was identified early enough due to constant asset implementation and testing.

Looking back at the plans whilst in pre-production, the colour palette was an obvious and high priority specification that just became lost in translation during the design prep. This particular problem has taught me how crucial it is to outline this early on to ensure designers are working towards a shared vision at all times, it also allows constant re-visitation during the project for guidelines.

      Hello everyone!  
      This is my submission for the Frogger challenge.
      The final build for the project can be found here!
      I hope I have fulfilled all requirements for this challenge. Sadly, I do not have time to create a gameplay video. I am not sure if this is a must. I have added a couple of screenshots from my blog series.
      My post-mortem post will be done next week. 
      As I already mentioned on the project page, I also could offer a Linux build if somebody needs one!
      I hope you like it and I am excited to see your high scores!
      Please tell me if there is anything missing!

      Hello, I'm currently searching for a talented and passionate programmer to create a small but great horror game that would take around 3 months to be done.
       
      About the game: The game would be a sci-fi/post-apocalyptic survival horror 3D game with FPS (First person shooter) mechanics and an original setting and story based in a book (which I'm writing) scene, where a group of prisoners are left behind in an abandoned underground facility. It would play similar to Dead Space combined with Penumbra and SCP: Secret Laboratory, with the option of playing solo or multiplayer.
       
      Engine that'd be used to create the game: Unity
       
      About me: I'm a music composer with 4 years of experience and I'm fairly new in this game development world, and I'm currently leading the team that'd be creating this beautiful and horrifying game. I decided that making the book which I'm writing into a game would be really cool, and I got more motivated about doing so some time ago when I got a bunch of expensive Unity assets for a very low price. However, I researched about how to do things right in game development so I reduced the scope of it as much as I could so that's why this game is really based in a scene of the book and not the entire thing (and also that's why it would take 3 months). Also I'm currently learning how to use Unity and how to model things with Blender.
       
      Our team right now consists of: Me (Game Designer, Creator, Music Composer, Writer), 3 3D Modelers, 1 Sound Effect Designer, 1 Concept Artist and 1 Programmer.
       
      Who am I looking for:
      - A programmer that's experienced in C# and with Unity.
       
      Right now the game is very early in its development (GDD is completed and all 3D Items, Music and Sound Effects are completed).
       
      If you are interested in joining, contributing or have questions about the project then let's talk. You can message me in Discord: world_creator#9524

      Random Number God has been updated to v1.1.0.
      This is an incremental (although not idle) game about defeating randomized robots by rolling dice and playing cards that alter those dice and their effects.
      Other than performance fixes, the game has been rebalanced from the ground up. Now it should progress in a more fluid fashion. An option to reset the game with a significant boost to your power has been added, allowing you to advance further than you could before.
      There is also now an option to significantly speed up battle animations. Once you learn the rules of the game, a battle can easily take <2 min.

      Currently if I was to program a game using C++ with SFML or Java with LibGDX I would render game objects by calling "object.render()" on the game object. Although this makes it easy to access the information necessary to render the game object, it also couples rendering to the game logic which is something I would like to move away from. How can rendering be implemented so that it is decoupled from the game objects?
      I wish to know how this can be done in the standard object oriented paradigm, so please don't suggest that I use an ECS. Thank you.
