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 a lot of great pixel art coming from Russia and Ukraine nowadays. You’ve got Punch Club, Bunker, Megasphere, The Final Station, Fuzeboy. A lot of them are being published by Tiny Build and this company is to be hailed for their support of this quirky type of projects. So, if you’re looking for a new exciting pixel art project from Russia, you’re in luck. Here’s Stoneshard.
Stoneshard is a roguelike dungeon crawler. You play as a brave adventurer, who traverses the dark dungeons, kills skeletons, gathers loot and dies a lot. But, there’s actually more to it, than meets the eye.
Have a look at these features:
• Everything is procedural. Global map, locations, events, potions and some items are generated during each new walkthrough.
• Global Map. You don’t just go down the dungeons, but you also travel across the global map as a part of your own caravan!
• Caravan. Yeah, so you’ll have to develop your caravan, find new allies, solve conflicts and gather followers.
• Survival. Skeletons are not the only things that kill you. There’s also hunger, thirst, intoxication, pain, injuries, fear and insanity. Sounds a lot like Darkest Dungeon.
There are some clever tricks with RPG systems, combat, permadeth and other elements of the genre. A lot of good things are happening with this game.
You can follow the development process on the dev blog. These guys are making great progress and we really hope this game is going to be a nice present for the fans of the genre.
