Today was a huge day in the story of Rocket Powered Hippo!

Our entire team presented the project to an audience of fellow students, lecturers and industry professions. The result? WE ARE VERY VERY VERY HAPPY!

As you can see our trailer has been posted! While the team completes another university assessment we'll be leaving Ascension for a week or so. We will release the game once the team has added an extra layer of polish to make said release extra special for the community!

Hi erikwijnands,

I guess we took inspiration from native americans in the sense that the people of Antare live off the land and treat their planet with respect. The whole premise of our game world is that this planets inhabitants had a social structure that blended primitive beliefs and culture with modern technology.

Azaer lives in a time where the technological knowledge of his people has regressed and so they rely much more on their heritage and skills to live off the land as best they can. Azaer is dressed quite primitively but by the end of our game he packs some pretty awesome weaponry =)

One week until pre-production documents are due in for all departments so hopefully a big update of pretty pictures, information and maps coming soon. Production starts the week after so you should all start seeing models and levels flying out!
