Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Naughty Dog uploaded the video recording of the demo, which was shown during E3 2017. This game is serious AAA eye candy.
If you had these fears that Uncharted might not work as a separate “not numbered” part, you might as well change your attitude. The newest demo of the game looks absolutely stunning. It’s not as bright and ‘up your face’ than Uncharted 4, but it has some of the most incredible 3d landscapes you’ve ever witnessed.
By the way the environments from 5:40 to the end were textured by the amazing Rogelio Olguin. The jungle space with the waterfalls and distant mountains looks amazing. Plus it all runs at a very smooth frame rate and constantly bombards you with effects, and destruction. Technologically The Lost Legacy is incredibly sophisticated. I can’t believe it’s possible to achieve this level of stylized realism in your game and then make the whole place destructible.
You’ll be able to purchase Uncharted: The Lost Legacy this August.
