Hi there, and welcome to a new Dev. Diary. For this new article we will talk about the process of creating the new character for the upcoming Early Access release of the game, the Prologue to episode 1, as well as to some important news about this Early Access process. Let's get started!

MAKING NEW CHARACTERS FOR 3:00AM DEAD TIME

As you know, 3:00am Dead Time is split into different episodes, each one with its own story, locations and characters. While the main investigation team is present in every episode, the prologue of each episode has a different set of main characters, the witnesses of the paranormal phenomena to investigate.

For Ep. 1, we are preparing a very special, different and exciting story. This first prologue presented a very particular challenge for us, as we had to make three different versions of the character, different sets of outfits and also improve our whole skin rendering system to allow for improved graphics and performance.

The initial sculpture made by hand in Sculptris :

The retopology process, done in Blender3D :

A very important challenge with every character is the hairstyle. Making good looking hair for human characters is always an obstacle in the development, as it is highly diffcult to get it to look right, either for stylized or realistic games. Every character's hairstyle should, besides, fit well with their personalities and be detailed as well as optimized enough to run smoothly in all platforms.

To make our work easier, we created a new hair shader (based on the one used for the demo) with a huge performance and quality boost, as well as with a much higher level of freedom for us to control the color, flow and appearance of it.


Besides the work we are doing in this main character, the upcoming Early Access release will feature a first multiplayer mode, and for that we are also making a bunch of new, highly detailed characters. In our previous article you could see a small timelapse video of the sculpting of one of them, and here we have a new one of how we make the individual clothes of our characters :

But this takes us to the news about the Early Access releases.

ABOUT THE EARLY ACCESS FOR 3:00AM DEAD TIME


The demo of 3:00am Dead Time is now available on GameJolt and Itch.IO, and we will be posting regular dev. logs on GameJolt if you want to follow closer the development of this game.


Also, as you know, the game is in the voting process of Steam Greenlight, and the Early Access releases through Steam will be available as soon as they are finished and the game greenlit. However, and to ensure you don't have to do any extra waiting, every Early Access release will also be available through GameJolt, with all the funders receiving access keys directly to their contact emails. This is part of our efforts to ensure all of you can play and enjoy 3:00am Dead Time.

A LITTLE TEASE FROM THE FUTURE


And to end this dev. diary, a little piece of concept art. While two of our members are working at top speed in the development of the first episode, one of the members, our 2D artist, is already working on the concept art and final character designs for episodes 2 and 3.

Hi there, and thank you for commenting!

Currently, the game is still under development, and there is still a while before we get a playable build ready to be publicly released. That being said, once we have it we will make a small release of a demo test, for everyone to try and give us their feedback. It is very important for us to get feedback from as many users as we can, but right now, there is not yet a playable build ready to be released to the public.

Again, thanks for your support, and keep an eye on this post, since we will be updating it often with the latest news!

Best Regards :
The Irreverent Software Team.

So it's been about 2-3 years since I've checked up on the progress of this game and it seems you've had to, yet again, switch to another engine.. Or the old engine.. ;-; Is this game officially dead? I was really hoping to see this game through. It was pretty cool back then. I hope your programmer is in good health. I think I remember that he had a heart condition. Best of luck Irreverent. Hopefully some day I'll get to play this full version.. Some day lol

Hi, and thank you for your comment. During the last year and a half, the project had several troubles to keep going under development at the same speed as in the first months, due to the health problems of a team member, some personal issues, and lack of funding. However, after April this year, the situation changed and improved, making it possible for us to go back to work in the project at the pace we needed, reworking the original ideas, improving and adding to them, and making them work in a new version of 3:00am Dead Time. Today, we released a first image of that new version, and in the following weeks, we will share more info about the game and its development.

The project is not dead, it is about to come back with a new look, new gameplay, making it an improved, bigger and more complete game than ever before.

We thank your interest in the game, and hope to have you still following the progress in the next weeks. We have several surprises in store for all our followers.

Best Regards,
The Irreverent Software Team

Hi there. The game is still in active development and being ported back to the newest version of Unity. We are trying to find new ways to get enough funds and resources to speed up the development and make the needed improvements. We need to get more funds, but the game is still in active development.

Kind Regards,
The Irreverent Software Team.
