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.

Entagma has shared a new guide to generating pattern 3D sculptures inside Houdini. The new video discusses a way you can use wave interference or the wave’s amplitude to move points of a plane in space to create an outstanding pattern.  

While on season break we received quite a few questions. One of those emails pointed us to the amazing work of Loris Cecchini, a sculptor who created (among other stunning artworks) those wave pattern sculptures. At first, it didn’t seem clear what’s going on there.

However, when you take a closer look it turns out those shapes are caused by what’s called wave interference. That’s when multiple waves overlap and create more complex shapes. Usually, interference is displayed as a 2D graph or some sort of heatmap. However, if you use the wave’s amplitude to move points of a plane in space, you can create those mesmerizing patterns.
