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.
Night in the Woods recently got a new trailer, which perfectly captures the incredible weird style of the game and shows some of the things you’d be able to do in this Unity game. So far it looks stunning.
In this video game you play as a cat, which explores the Possum Springs – a tiny town inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. You have to talk to various inhabitants, check out the sights, touch various stuff and so on. Slowly you’re going to see the storyline and find some of the peculiar things about this crazy place.
Night in the Woods has a very interesting visual style. It’s all very grim, there’s a lot of contrast and nice animations, the world is very detailed and has some nice warm autumn lighting. The project also features some nice melancholic atmosphere.
The game is created by Alec Holowka – one of the important figures in the modern indie movement. He collaborated with Scott Benson on this project. Together they form a studio called Infinite Fall. The game is published by Finji, which released a number of hits, including Canabalt, Overland and Hundreds. The composer of this game is Alec Holowka himself. He managed to create some astonishing rock soundtrack for this project.
Night in the Woods was funded through Kickstarter. The developers got over $200 000, which was four times more than they originally asked for.
So far Night in the Woods looks like an absolute winner. Can’t wait to play it.
