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.
There’s not a lot of information about the project. We’ve just seen the trailer (it’s awesome) and a couple of GIFs. The animations, the movement, the style and the special effects look incredible. The game is being developed by a small company Askiisoft, which specializes in compact indie games (Tower of Heaven, Pause Ahead).
Katana ZER0 is a fast paced neo-noir action platformer, focusing on tight, instant-death acrobatic combat, and a dark 80’s neon aesthetic. Aided with your trusty katana, the time manipulation drug Chronos and the rest of your assassin’s arsenal, fight your way through a fractured city, and take back what’s rightfully yours.
Can’t wait to talk with the developers about their new game. Katana ZER0 has all the chances t become the next big indie platformer.
