Very cool, looks super well done! Lots of atmosphere. You seem to be pretty far along too? Is there a lot left to do? Blink

I agree with Alain, starting from a painting is such an unusual premise for making a game and it has already lead to very different graphics to what I'm used to.

Looking forward to trying it out, looks like a fun puzzle game!
Thanks! I want to think I found a quite unique way of making my graphics, I hope people will like how it plays!

Congratulations on the Steam page and I like the trailer a lot!
Thank you very much!

Many gracias! Yeah, it depends. I have come a long way in building the world, maybe 90%.
I've got the overarching storyline set.
The core mechanics are about 80% done.
About half of the characters are modelled and rigged, maybe 5-10% of the animation on them done.
The main quest of the game will be divided in 3 parts and right now only the first 1 can be progressed half way through.

So it's still a whole lot left to do, my goal is 1 year!

Nice, that's not too far off in the grand scheme of things. Best of luck! Grin Hand Thumbs Up Right

No everything is relative, I've probably done more than I got left :D Thank you!

Here are some character concepts I've painted:



These will also be used in-game as dialogue portraits I think:

Doing a proper backjump is not too common in games, so I figured, in Orten you are supposed to do a backjump on the subway.

Last week I did a proof of concept for myself. I figured a common FogOfWar mechanic would do the trick and it seems to work.

So I have a mesh plane with 0 alpha. Tha character stands in front of the plane in an animation blendspace that put his hand in a perfect square in front of him (I use 9 poses: up, down, left, right, upleft and so on...)
Of course, the blending of the hand between these poses would not be in a straight line since the hand is so low down the skeleton hierarchy. So instead I have a joint, which I call "Align", that's a direct child under the root joint but placed in the same place as the hand:



So when changing blendspace input values the Align joint will go in a straight line everywhere, then I just IK the hand to the align joint.

Then I raycast from the hands position, to another object thats behind the mesh plane. And where the Ray hit the meshplane i modify it's alpha to be 1 right at the hitpoint and then fade out over a set distance (could equip a fatcap to increase this distance).

When the sum of all vertices alpha is above 0.75, the letter is considered done and your AI friend will put on outlines.

So yeah now you have complete control of where your hand goes, where you spray. The challenge for now is to do everything within a time limit!  Gentleman

Had to look up what a backjump is (fast-sprayed graffiti? Did I get that right?). Now there's something I definitely haven't seen encoded into game mechanics before. Nice implementation too, from to looks of it!

Oh yeah! Sorry, yes a backjump is when you paint a train that is in traffic. Like waiting at an end station as in this case! :D

That was a cool breakdown! Somehow I find it oddly satisfying to watch the outlines being filled.

TIL, I thought it was the specific IK for when the other character jumps away from the train at the end of the GIF or something Cheesy Very cool little tech update, result is impressive!

Hi Otres1!

I stumbled upon your thread for the first time. And yeah, your game is looking great from both art perspective but also from perspective of gameplay mechanics idea (time-loop instead of just classic point'n'click). Congrats on Steam page! I'll keep an eye on your project, looks very promising!

Hey, Otres1

This is a very unique looking game you have there. It definitely oozes personality and talent and atmosphere. Can't wait to see how it plays.

Thank you! I hope it will feel equally satisfying to play!  Grin

Thanks! The IK is all about keeping the hand steady and follow player input.  Hand Joystick

Nice to hear and thank you! Yeah this is not point and click at all Smiley
