December 4, 2017: Icons, Animations and a PR Crew!

by

Welcome back!  The INT team has quite the update for everyone this week.  This update is meant to close out the month of November and to begin the month of December.  Additionally, please make sure you vote for INT for indie of the year!  

Icon Update

Let’s begin the update by showcasing one of Scott’s latest icons.  Our icon development revamp project has been roaring and we are nearing completion!  Over the past few weeks, Scott has moved on to working on weapon icons and we would like to feature one of the legacy guns in the game that now has an icon!  Check out the Fist Industries AK-47 below.  What’s a near future space RPG without some classic, earth-based, legacy weapons like an AK?  

Let us know what you think of Scott’s hard work below!

UMA Character Design Process and Promo Image

This week we would like to showcase some work being done by our character artist Lawrence and concept artist Jesse!  Jesse recently completed a concept redo for one of our planned companion (crew) members named Brittany Sellers.  Brittany is a UCE Agent (United Colonies of Earth) and is on Bastion to oppose the ACP (Atlas Confederacy of Planets).  You will encounter her early in the game and depending on what options you choose, she could join your party, not appear at all, refuse to join, or you may end up fighting her!  

Check out Jesse’s promo image for Brittany below.  

Additionally, Lawrence recently completed the ACP Grunt model and has now moved on to creating Brittany Sellers for the game.  He has recently started work on her so it is a WIP, but please check out his latest work for Sellers.  Please stay tuned as we continue to update this like we did with the Grunt so you can see how Brittany Sellers develops over the next few weeks.  

Please let us know what you think of Lawrence and Jesse’s hard work below!

Environmental Modeling Update

Tim has recently moved on from the bosses (done!) to start working on other environmental prop pieces for the street level.  This week we would like to showcase an early look at the crashed ACP bomber on the street level.  This is one of the bombers that will bomb your apartment building at the start of the game.  When you are exploring make sure you check out the crashed bomber as there may be a side quest located there!  


Remember to keep checking back to see how the crashed bomber develops!

Animation Update

This month we would like to showcase an animation update for everyone.  Nigel, our Animation Lead, has been working hard on building out new weapon poses for the game. This week we would like to show everyone a video WIP of our new rifle combat poses. Please check out the link below and let us know what you think.
