Great job and very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.
Frankly I do not understand why we talk about the past of this CEO. As a player I do not care about what he did or not until his games are good. As an Environmental Artist instead I see a game with a shaky graphics. It is completely without personality, emotion and involvement. It can hardly be considered acceptable especially for the 2019 platforms (which I understand will be the target of this game). Well, this is probably an indie group, with no experience facing a first game in the real market. And that's fine. Do the best you can that even if you fail, you will learn and do better. From a technical point of view the method you are using is very old. It can work but not as you are doing it. I bet you're using Unity, it's easy to see that since I see assets from their asset store. Break your landscapes more, they are too monotonous and contact real 3D artists and level designers. One last thing, the last screenshot is worse than all the previous ones. The lights are wrong and everything screams disaster. Avoid similar disasters in the future.
But are they real or is it a mockery? or a scam? Truly horrible flat graphics and lacking a real sense of aesthetics. Ui devoid of consistency and usability. Do they really have a graphic art department? Imho in 2018 using such tricks so massively denotes profound technical incompetence.
Last year National Center for Research of Development in Poland has awarded The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red 30 million PLN ($7 million USD) to help the studio improve several aspects of game development. Reddit user boskee took some time to study the official documentation and found out that there are several conditions behind the money. So the thing is that all four of the projects funded by the government must be fully completed by June, 2019.
At last, we got a release window for the studio’s next game, which should be Cyberpunk 2077. What is more, all the projects will be developed with RedEngine 4, the next version of the studio’s game engine.
Also, something strange is happening with Gwent. A post on CDPR’s Investors forum about CDPR’s communication in 2017 concentrating on Gwent has been removed.
We have to wait just two years to get something new from the creators of Geralt’s adventures and that is definitely a good thing.
