The working title for 'Game2' is now offically
The Golden Caldera
Still Undecided =/
EDIT: Apparently noone likes this name, so we are gonna think of another.
Golden: having the deep slightly brownish color of gold; "long aureate (or golden) hair"; "a gold carpet"
Caldera: a large depression at the top of a volcano, caused by collapse or explosion.
A large complaint from many critics of Morning's Wrath, is that it's art tried to be a bit too real, I would have to agree, the use of photorealistic textures and very realistic character models aided in this. While this was good in some ways it didin't have much of an 'artsy' feel to it, wherein some games 'such as the lucas arts adventure games' have more 'character' to them, I am working to develop a slightly different art style for TGC(The Golden Caldera).
Here is an example of what I think we are going to go with, perhaps some particulars such as different lighting and a definte 'theme' set of colors will be used.
Straight off the renderer
posterized to give a 'hand shaded effect'
posterized and stroked (inked)
just inked (retains shaded detail
what do you think?
