Besides, if you'd be involved in project budgeting you would be aware that the costs are growing and using cheap alternatives is inevitable. This is the business. first of all.
If you hate people that can make your life easier and see the threat in everything related to AI then you can hardly call yourself an artist. Rather than a kid who likes to be in a comfort zone.
This is sad only for cheap projects and artists having no desire to grow. This technology in particular will make life easier for those who often use photostock services.
L.A. company Robotoki decided to change the business model of the upcoming game Human Element. This zombie-related product is becoming premium.
Robotoki will cooperate with an unannounced publisher to release the final game in November 2015. The contract with Nexon was cancelled. Robert Bowling from Robotoki told Gamasutra that Human Element evolved into a different game, that just wouldn’t be fun as a F2P-title. The developers made a decision to go premium and change to whole monetization system.
Robotoki was founded in 2012 by Rober Bowling – a former Infinity Ward employee and one of the chief strategists behind Call of Duty. Nexon was not only one of the publishers of Human Element but also one of the biggest investors in the studio.
Nexon and Robotoki have come to a mutual decision to end their publishing agreement for the game Human Element. As development of the project progressed the direction of the game naturally evolved, and it no longer aligns with the Nexon portfolio.

Human Element is a secret project that we really haven’t heard much about. The game takes place 35 years after a zombie apocalypse. Humans are fighting for survival and gather the remaining resources. The game is announced for the PC. There’s still not a single screenshot of the game – just promotional art, that looks very much like The Last of Us.
