The story of a great adventure

ET : Are they really intelligent ?

It has become a common concept for everyone that if there are ET, they MUST be more intelligent... but  why ? Maybe we haven't found anything yet (or at least anything was announce yet) because we ain't searching the right thing. We are searching stuff that come out of our own science fiction and we never thought about the hypothesis that maybe WE are the sci-fi of them ? That idea of them being equal, at most, but different, was the start of this crazy story. We imagine people that have live their own life, on their own planet and timelapse. Similar to our. What would happen ? probably different stuff than here, but not so much more or less. Stuff would be different because we would probably think different, but with equal evolution time there is no reason to think they would be far more advance than us.  One thing we may have in common, the search for Extraterrestrial Life. 

We are the monster !

Yes we are ! I take into consideration that if they have similar evolution but different technology and that they are seeking life too, well then there is a high chance that they have sci-fi too and that we are the monster, we are the alien, we are scary ! The comic book evoke this through encounter between the  Zarin and natural force. We have water all over the place, what if other species don't have water, what if you see the sea for the first time in your life and that you never heard of it. What is calming for us could be really threatening from an untrained eye who see this weird material/creature moving toward you trying to grab you with the wave. The reaction from an outsider to everyday object could be really interesting and funny. 

The mission

As stated before, Zoïle get a mission briefing from the high council and form his own squad. One of the them, Guigner, is a true believer of the "tall colored one". (Yeah we are afraid of little green alien, they are afraid of tall colored one...). Their mission is to investigate our planet in search for intelligent life form. Nobody really think that there is life here because the CO2 level is higher than life could sustain for more than 20 years, at least, based on their biology. Still, Zoïle take his mission very seriously and depart to earth. The army, desperate to get rid of Zoïle toxic behavior, was sending them to what they believe to be an insignificant mission that could leave them away from the real business for a couple of time. Left with a ship in a poor condition, the crew risk their life in the deep space. Approaching earth, mechanical trouble put their safety at  risk, the only hope is to land and hope for the best. The group crash into earth, spreading spaceship piece all over the globe following it's explosion. The group survive thanks to their anti-gravity shield armor, they face no fall damage. They are in shock and wake up in an unknown location. They are afraid in this very hostile area, their first goal is to settle a camp, their primary mission is to find proof of intelligent life form. It's a recon mission, they don't know if we are hostile or not, they don't want to get notice, they want to get safe, take proof and repair/rebuild their ship to reach freedom. Through their journey, they will discover new and hidden information about their original mission that will change their destiny forever.

We hope to explore our universe with a different eye, through the eye of a visitor, we want this story to be fun and believable in a way. I have attach a small section of the very early sketch of the original story comic book. The entire story and book will be completely redraw and rewritten to provide a high quality final product. There will be different technology, your alien will feel overpower but their weakness put them at risk. We want the world to feel both pretty and dangerous and I hope you'll find the plot interesting. The game will unlock many information about the species and their mission. Your primary objective will be to rebuild your ship to leave this god damn planet (isn't it Ripley that said that in Alien ?). The hidden objective and story will be revealed in-game while you progress and you will be unlocking the real primary objective. We don't want to spoiled it here, but I expect some of you to expect what will happen.

Let me know what is your favorite sci-fi movie in the comment below !

I nearly missed this week blog, my personal life was a bit troubled this week, but I am here. Last time, i was hoping to get more comment to reveal a tutorial on how to draw Zoïle. We didn't get enough comment, but I will share a video anyway next week. Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss it. The tutorial will include both the sketch and inking.

      Hi everyone,
      Stitched has been released for almost a year now and our game has gone through numerous great updates and revisions thank to feedback from everyone! To conclude a wonderful summer, our game is currently on sale for 30% off on Steam from September 17th to October 1st. Check us out here: Store.steampowered.com
      Also, we would want to showcase some of our artworks for our game. Below are some of the concept arts that we did in the past.
      Firstly, the main subject we wanted to focus on before any art is the primary color of the game. We decided to choose purple as it's a color that stands out and somewhat fitting in a horror game.
      Below is the original title screen and the finalized version of the title screen of Stitched. We original wanted to give Catherine long hair but decided against it because we feel the long hairstyle was done too many times. We wanted to give Catherine a unique look hence we decided upon the new shorter hairstyle. We also touch up on her expression to make the player see that Catherine is terrified. Thirdly, we wanted to emphasize the title of the game by making it glow with light purple color.


      The below three images represent design stage for the doll character in Stitched. The first image is the original sketch. The second image is an updated version to give the character a more serious tone. The final sketch is to give the character her color which include her hair, face, and dress colors. We went through a large amount of revisions for this character to get the right color, facial expression to match her personality.



      And lastly, check out some amazing fan art for our game through this youtube video!

      For anyone who is interested in our art. Check out our deviant art page here.
      For those who have further interest in our game, check out our website here and our Steam developer page here for future projects!
      Cheers!

      Hello,
      I am university student. This year I am going to write bachelor thesis about Vulkan app using terrain to render real places based on e.g. google maps data.
      I played World of Warcraft for 10 years and I did some research about their terrain rendering. They render map as grid of tiles. Each tile had 4 available textures to paint (now 8 by expansion WoD) However I found issue about this implementation, that's gaps between tiles. Is there any technique which solves this problem? I read on stackoverflow that guys find only solution in using smooth tool and fixing it manually. Main question: is this terrain rendering technique obsolete? Is there any new technique that replaces this method to render large map as small tiles?
      Should I try to implement rendering terrain as grid of tiles or should I use some modern technique (can you tell me which is modern for you?). If I should implement terrain as one large map to prevent gaps between tiles how textures are applied for such large map?
       
      Thanks for any advice.

      Hello, i want to share my project with others just for not being the only person who knows about it
      I think i'm not completely beginner, so i decided to try some game. I'm still learning game mechanism so probably this project is for testing purposes.
      I started as a website developer so i am coding in javascipt. Of course i will learn new real programming languages like C++ or java but probably in near future. For now js is enough for me
      This is my first video from the game just to show features i've made. It was recorded some time ago, so there's more small features now, just need to record new video
      Please let me know what you think about it(don't look at rpg maker textures, it's for testing purposes, ofc in official release i will made my own txt) and what features would you like to see in the future.
      P.s: sorry for my bad english, i'm still learning(and for no HD in video )

      Hey all,
      I'm currently working on a medieval web game. I'm in need of character art and ui art. I don't care if it's realistic or stylized. There is no animation. Experience in front-end technologies(html, css, javascript, jquery, ajax) would be a bonus. If you don't have front-end experience, it's not a problem. I can handle it all, I just hate front end.
      Work I've already completed:
      Stood up sql server and sql database.
      Developed API to be consumed by game using OAuth
      Developed class library to send requests and receive responses from API.
       
      I'm a very experienced programmer. This isn't a project started by a self taught beginner programmer. I've already sunk some money into the project and am very serious about completing it. 
      I know I could get some free art online to get the job done, but I figured I'd give an artist a chance to showcase their work on a published project.
      This is not a Unity or Unreal project. 
       
      What I need:
      2D Artist with experience in character art.
      Experience in 2D environment art.
      Experience creating UI elements for web.
      Front-end experience a plus, but not needed.
