Great job and very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.
Frankly I do not understand why we talk about the past of this CEO. As a player I do not care about what he did or not until his games are good. As an Environmental Artist instead I see a game with a shaky graphics. It is completely without personality, emotion and involvement. It can hardly be considered acceptable especially for the 2019 platforms (which I understand will be the target of this game). Well, this is probably an indie group, with no experience facing a first game in the real market. And that's fine. Do the best you can that even if you fail, you will learn and do better. From a technical point of view the method you are using is very old. It can work but not as you are doing it. I bet you're using Unity, it's easy to see that since I see assets from their asset store. Break your landscapes more, they are too monotonous and contact real 3D artists and level designers. One last thing, the last screenshot is worse than all the previous ones. The lights are wrong and everything screams disaster. Avoid similar disasters in the future.
But are they real or is it a mockery? or a scam? Truly horrible flat graphics and lacking a real sense of aesthetics. Ui devoid of consistency and usability. Do they really have a graphic art department? Imho in 2018 using such tricks so massively denotes profound technical incompetence.
Sceelix, a procedural engine for 3D scenes is now free! The announcement doesn’t mean the team is going to stop working on the tool — a new version is now live and the team continues to grow. If you had previously supported the engine by purchasing a license, your name will be added to the official website and you will get first-hand access to some future offers.
In light of this change, we’ve also launched a new update, version 0.8.7.0, which is available in the usual downloads page.
This new version removed the need for licenses and development keys. If you had bought or tried Sceelix before, you can login with your existing credentials. If not, you can register for a new account for free!
In addition to changing the licensing system, we’ve introduced some features, including a new expression editor, some great 3D rendering filters, a few Unity plugin novelties and a couple more generation algorithms. There were several other minor additions, changes and bug fixes, so don’t forget to check them out!
You can find more details on the engine here.
