This is amazing! Please tell us, What programs where used to create these amazing animations?

I am continuing development on WorldKit as a solo endeavor now. Progress is a bit slower as I've had to take a more moderate approach to development hours. I took a short break following the failure of the commercial launch, and now I have started up again, but I've gone from 90 hour work weeks to around 40 or 50 hour work weeks. See my longer reply on the future of WorldKit here: I am hard at work with research and code, and am not quite ready to start the next fund-raising campaign to open-source, so I've been quiet for a while. I hope to have a video out on the new features in the next few weeks.

Someone please create open source world creator already in C/C++.

Agony: Survival Horror from Hell
4 July, 2017

Madmind Studio is building a game, which features some of the most twisted art direction since Dante’s Inferno.

Madmind Studio is a company from Poland, founded by Tomasz Dutkiewicz. He’s a VFX artist, who worked in a number of big local companies, including City Interactive, Vivid Games and Flying Fish Works. So, about 2 years ago he published a little video, showcasing his work on a project called “Sacred Agony”.

I created it by using unreal engine 4, with little help of my friend who created few 3d meshes. Everything else in this video I made by myself, including design, camera work, animation, textures, most of the 3d meshes and particles. Music is from “android lust” who give me premission to use. All other sounds are from free websites.

Luckily for us, this project didn’t die in the very beginning of its journey. In November 2016 the team actually ran a successful Kickstarter campaign, which helped the developers to raise $182,642 (Canadian USD) to continue the development of the full project. Right now there are 9 people working on this game full time.

Plus they actually got some help from the publisher PlayWay S.A. New partners are going to help with the distribution and publishing of the boxed copies of the game. But that’s not really what we wanted to talk about.

Agony has a striking visual design. It takes place in hell with all the demons, gore and blood you might expect from a place like this. The creature design is just the stuff of nightmares. Absolutely horrific designs done in a super detailed way. The environments are full of very powerful images and incredible lights. The light design is absolutely amazing. Incredibly beautiful work and it’s all running in real-time thanks to UE4. Tomasz had a lot of fun with different tweaks here, cause the game does look absolutely incredible. If you are interested in what you can actually do with environment design in UE4, you should definitely check this out.

The game will be released sometime this year on Steam and other platforms, including Xbox One and PS4.
