this is a sneak preview for our upcoming project “Lightspire.” An Action Adventure RPG using the Cryengine2. We wish to turn lightspire into a commercial game soon. I know a lot of you are probably wondering what the game is about, what are some of the features, and most importantly, when can it be played; all your questions and more will be answered soon at the launch of the website in the coming week. However, the team and I have been working very hard on this project for the past 3-4 months, and we are just dying to leak out some of the work to the other fellow Game Development communities. Please keep checking in and exploring the websites, as once they launch, they will have all the information needed. Here at Lukewarm, we like to give sneak peaks with a bang… Allow me to say “The evolution of fantasy is on its way!”

Today we have two brand new model renders to show you. The following images are renders of two of our characters the Shapeshifter and the Rynox. These models have been improved since they were shown ingame in our last update.

Character Render

Rynox - 3d Render

The Rynox is a lethal killer, its favored tactic being an all out charge. Preferring body slams to swordplay the Rynox will throw itself at your defenses with no pity or remorse. You must have your wits about you to avoid being impaled on its huge 20 inch head-mounted horn. Though barbaric and relentless in close quarters battle the Rynox is also a competent tactician and capable of organizing less intelligent beings. Depending on which character you play, you will need to adjust your tactics to fight this killer.

Shapeshifter - 3D Render

At the moment little is known of the ShapeShifter. A mysterious being with the power to transmogrify himself and cast powerful ancient spells. Through his power and wisdom he also carries with him a terrifying curse.

Brilliant... fantastic models, textures and normals... though the Rino's head looks a little over done with the bumps.. his armour should be a little less like stone and more like metal... and I know these are just renders, but your transparency maps seem to be producing some specular reflections...

Great stuff, fantastic models.
for some reason, the shape shifters remind me of dark elf on TES3: Morrowind =P

They still look awesome and quite unique. I wonder into what shapeshifter can exactly turn? Animals, monsters, or something he is targeting?

Highest quality models ive seen in a long time here! Great work.
Still slightly miss some added weight in the cloth folds (the folds could be deeper and slightly more polished.)
But yeah, great work

That is some really nice texture work on those models, very high quality.
Also, the design of the shapeshifter's armour is great, reminds me of Oblivion and Lord of the Rings somehow.
I'm interested to see more of this mod.
