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.
After 18 months of development, the indie team at Anticto released its first game: Steamroll. Take a look at this new adventure and puzzle game available for Steam users.
Steamroll is an adventure and puzzle 3D game set in a steampunk world. You are a young engineer in his first day of work and take control of the Scarabeus, the greatest new steam-fuelled vehicle invention, while you try to survive in a crumbling mine and look for a way out. You will have to solve puzzles by shooting steamballs from your vehicle to create ramps, walls, activate triggers, blow things away, and more.
Steamroll is a single-player game featuring 18 unique, beautiful and challenging levels. It works in Windows, Mac and Linux and it contains translations to English, Spanish, Catalan and German. It can be controlled with keyboard and mouse and it also supports gamepads. The game is available in the Steam platform, after being for 5 months in Early Access gathering feedback from the player community while it was being developed.
