I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
Alex Kanaris-Sotiriou and Tom Jones have announced their new studio and their new game – Röki.
Two art directors Alex Kanaris-Sotiriou and Tom Jones from Guerrilla Cambridge pond their own studio called Polygon Treehouse. As you might have heard, the company behind RIGS: Mechanized Combat League was developer Guerrilla Cambridge, which was shut down earlier this year, is it’s only natural that developers are looking for new way to go.
Alex Kanaris-Sotiriou and Tom Jones are currently building their debut game called Röki. It’s a fantasy point-and-click adventure, which will be released in 2018. The authors will keep the development open, posting as much as possible about their journey. There will be fewer secrets, which means we’ll be able to learn a bit more about the way they approach the production of 3d content.
Röki actually looks pretty amazing. It’s a very simple and dark game, with some very fluid animations and beautiful backgrounds. Looking forward to hearing more from the developers about their production approach.
