Those wooden buildings where made by Ronny Muehle ( Platinumgold.de ) from Crytek and are available as preview assests in the Free SDK.

Alan Wake was made with the MAX-FX 3.0 engine (Max stands for Max Payne engine). But yes those building are certainly influenced by Alan Wake by the looks of it.

Im curious to see how this turns out. For the moment only 1 character model has been shown and it looks a bit to cartoony (squary, non realistic) compared to what CE3 character models can do. Of course they did stereotype the Germans and I will certainly look out for new screenshots to see which (art)direction the game goes into.

I didn't made the building itself. Im turning the building into an underwater setting so im adding plants, water, bubbles, dirt, moss and so on. (here is original building in Crysis 2: Helderpinto.com

Luckily I don't have to think about combat under water since gameplay doesn't have to included for the contest. But if I would have to think about it then it would a mix of Bioshock and some exterior scenes with diving equipment. (like in some James Bond movies)

Btw I became second in last months contest ;)

@Multiple roads.We thought of that idea, but it takes the flow out of the training session. The spinning instructor needs to focuss on his class and keep in his or hers rythem. Adding options to choose from during the spinning class stops that flow. Our solution was to add more whole videos to choose from.
