TERRA MELIOR is a sci fi action RPG with challenging gameplay, an artistic style, and a chilling story. The adventure takes place on a harsh planet of ice and snow, where you solve a mystery by shooting giant monsters in the face. Heavily influenced by Dark Souls and Mass Effect 1, the game will involve 3rd person shooting (not cover based – you’ll be dodging instead), upgrading your stats/equipment, and overcoming lots of exhilarating boss battles. There is an in-depth character system that determines how the player can move, ranging from visual feedback like procedural animation to gameplay mechanics like stamina, poise, and “health states”. The game will be released on Windows and Mac. There will be a Kickstarter that will let you get the game at a discount, and support us as we finish development.
Here's a video of some penguins I added to the game:
And some screenshots!
The penguins loiter around the point they start at, and randomly decide to either slowly waddle, or do a clumsy run. At random times, they can do one of three actions: Jump up, do a belly slide, or just squawk rapidly for a few seconds.
This was a great exercise for me, as I not only got a neutral creature into the game, but I got to work with models that will have a lot of screentime. Most enemies are always bearing down on you, but the player can just stand around and look at penguins. Instead of worrying about attacks and combat, I focused on making them look lifelike and appealing.
It took me about 3.5 hours to make them, but you can watch me do it in 15 minutes with these two videos:

@AlwaysGeeky Snowboarding sounds better. Also, you evidently have snow, and I'm jealous. :P
