So proud of you Alina!!!!!!

We’ve been waiting for this for a whole year. Blocktober is finally here with more artists sharing yearly blockouts from well-known projects and some upcoming titles. Blocktober is meant to celebrate the creativity of video game designers and encourage the sharing of layouts to share wisdom and show young designers a trick or two. The origins of the trend can be found on the page of Naughty Dog’s Michael Barclay who launched the whole thing last year. Let’s begin with a number of cool tweets from different artists.
First, here are some early stages of Uncharted:

Hijacking @MotleyGrue 's awesome #Blocktober tag again this year to highlight previz! Here's the [SPOILERIFFIC] previz-to-final of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy's climactic train escape sequence. (NOTE: Elena was never in TLL, just a low-res mesh used to drive high-res Nadine). pic.twitter.com/rh7mU8Z6cv

#Blocktober is here! First up, a before/after scene from "Uncharted: The Lost Legacy". It's never to early to start building a mood and sense of place with your shapes. Get off that grid! (env art by @breckten) pic.twitter.com/CUq7xOliTI

Enrique Colinet prepared something awesome for the occasion:
ENGLISH: #Blocktober starts tomorrow and I want to share with you guys why this is huge for me. For the next 31 days, I’ll be uploading 24 timelapse videos for the 24 blockouts that’s I’ve been creating during the last two months. If you love #LevelDesign, follow me! 😉 pic.twitter.com/tiOIozOc9h

Starting off Blocktober with something from the archives. The rough map for first mission in Saints Row IV, Zero Saints Thirty. The rocket sequence wasn't added till much later in development. #Blocktober #leveldesign #saintsrow #gamedesign #gamedev pic.twitter.com/GswLUFZti1
