Hello, I'm new here. This is my first game. I don't know much about this forum to be honest but I was recommended by someone on the the blenderartists.org forums as a cool place to check out.

I'm working on an atmospheric exploration game that is somewhere between Knytt and The Path (though closer to latter). It's pretty simple as a game - you wander around a level, collect things and move on to the next level. In all honesty, there's not much game play. If you have an aversion to "arty" games then you probably won't be interested in this. Smiley

Here are some screens and video of what I have so far:

I'll upload some more when I have more to show. Smiley

Oh yeah, forgot to add the link to my blog: http://zlythy.blogspot.com/

Graphics remind me somewhat of Myst. Concept sounds good.

Looks pretty nice and interesting,though some of the areas seemed somewhat bleak and boring.

You've done a good job on the teaser and it's definitely something I'll play once it's out.

Looks really cool- digging the angular style of the creatures.

Thank you all for taking a look! I'm certainly moving forward. Things have slowed down this week because I've had the flu but I've still done a little bit each day despite that. Things will pick back up this week! Smiley

that looks really stylish  Hand Thumbs Up Right

the ground texture is bothering me though. It doesn't fit in with the rest, and it also seems like i've seen it elsewhere before..

everything else looks great though  Smiley

Thank you for the input! Not sure where you would have seen the ground texture as it is an original texture I created and taken directly from the original concept art file: http://shanesemler.deviantart.com/art/Muusont-141876826. The trees use the same texture except I put a simple wave filter on it. It works for me but hey, everyone has a different perspective. Smiley Also, none of this is final. This is my first game and I'm making things up as I go along. Things can and will change.

Looks fantastic. A lot of these shots would be great as a cycling desktop background. Should look awesome in-game.

The full size images are 1280×720. They shouldn't look too bad scaled up. If you want to put them on your desktop, feel free! Smiley

Games used to be about exploring new interesting and impossible worlds. Somehow that changed into "experience war"...

I like it, and I want to see more like it.  Hand Thumbs Up Right

Experience war with lots of bloom and brown. Roll Eyes In all seriousness, I like a good shooter now and then but yeah, there's way too much of it.

More is on the way!

Thanks!

Yeah this is great. I'm getting a real Myst vibe with that latest shot. Reminds me of the good old days, like unsilentwill said.
