That is really a great thing for us all. http://fewhacks.com/
I just based my landscape material on this. I just wish I could exactly figure out what is going on with normals, ao and displacement here.
That was extremely helpful! Thank you!
Twirlbound has finally presented Pine, an action adventure game that adapts to you, using advanced AI and an intricate game ecology. The game is said to recognize your patterns and style of play with its creatures and world reacting and adapting to you specifically.
You take on the role of Hue, a shy but smart young adult belonging to one of the last remaining human tribes on the island of Albamare. Fighting for the survival of your species, you need to overcome your fear of the outside world, and embark on a wondrous adventure to find your way to a new home.
Inspired by the adventures of Link in the Zelda-series, the intriguing nemesis system of Shadow of Mordor, Fable’s choice-dependent progression and the dance-like combat of Bloodborne, Pine brings you an ever-evolving world that provides each player with a truly unique journey.
- Your enemies learn your moves and style as you fight them: they observe you, try out different combos against you and physically evolve, to oppose your style specifically! It forces you to adapt to them and to choose your alles and enemies wisely.
- The vast island of Albamare has a mystery around every corner, ready to be explored: As you embark on your necessary adventure, you uncover intriguing details about the history of the island and how the current evolutionary course came to be.
- Survival of the fittest, even when you’re not around: Pine is world-centric, meaning things will happen across the island regardless of your actions. Based on knowledge borrowed from evolution and ecology theory, all species will do anything to survive – from small power shifts to the extinction of a sort, the island of Albamare features it all.
- Use a range of fantastic tools to make your way across the island: As you progress, you discover amazing contraptions that help you traverse, interact and fight. Scare away creatures with the Igniter, make your way across large gaps with the amazing Airglider or scale the highest cliffs using strong Climbing Axes!
- Dynamic weather and natural day/night cycles that make the species move and act: Based on their needs, some species will find shelter during the nastiest storms or the coldest nights. Keep an eye out for large migrations as the island’s inhabitants are always on the move!
You can find more info on Steam Greenlight, where Pine reached top 100 within 36 hours. The developers are also going live on Kickstarter on March 9 to involve more gamers.
