I finally finished first location which will set the mood for first world.

After finishing concept art, main objective was to add more variety to the ground texture. Simple 'dot' flowers and color variance in texture helped a lot to make scene more natural looking.

Second objective/problem was selecting initial camera angle and lighting. I'm struggling between two options. Frist one with top-left lighting, and second one with bottom-right. Top-right seems to produce more neutral looking scene. On the other hand bottom-left allows for more dramatic look.

Ok, so this are two camera angles of the same scene. Which one seems better to you guys as default camera ?

You're graphical style is really unique, it's got a certain level of realism while sporting a slightly cartoony look, I'd buy this game for it's style alone, but I'm sure the game play will be amazing, looks good!

I love the shadows in this, it looks like you're sampling the sky colour to colour the shadows. They look blue and it's really effective. Is this a feature of the engine you're using or is it something you've put in yourself?

Lighting is baked to texture using Vray rendering engine. Color palete is selected by me, but effects like Global illumination and shadow volumes are generated by rendering engine and baked into static texture which is then put over albedo in game engine.

Allows for nice lighting that works even on mobile devices.

Thanks for suggestions!

Multiplayer is on my mind all the time but unfortunetly i'm not sure if i can manage to finish it for first release.

Currently main objective is to create fast paced TD. Short but demanding maps. Your towers will gain experience by "doing", so ones more productive with killing enemies will level up faster.

At the and of every map you have possibility to add towers with higher levels to your "party" which will be persistant across all maps.

That's general plan, which will be spiced up with custom skills and perks.

As for Reverse Mode. In Anomaly Warzone it works great. Will play with this idea.
