Post news Report RSS New Art Asset Overview Video

This week Aubrey explores some more controversial decisions in Overgrowth's art direction! Click inside for an HD video.

Posted by on

This week I created a new hex crete variant, and tried some new ideas for the art direction in Overgrowth (which you can preorder here). I also tried out some production ideas to speed up development so that I can finish all the assets on time.

Be sure to watch it in HD!


Working on the new material sounds got me thinking about animal voices for dialogue. Cats are easy since they are so vocal and well-known, it's obvious what they should sound like. But rabbits are a lot more challenging. Most rabbits make no noise at all, aside from the occasional squeak, grunt or snuffle.

In Lugaru they were all "screaarrawwwwk" or "breebbreerbreerbree" but some people found those voices to be annoying. We could give them more of a growling "thhrrrummthrrrumthrrrr" or "rrroooaaackraarrrr", but we might lose some of the vulnerable rabbity quality. Do you have any ideas for how the rabbits should sound? Should they be more like "re-brreebr-yip" or "papipipipum"?

Hahahaha... Seeing as this was posted on the April 2nd, I'd guess it quite simply *must* be true, eh?

Great video.

As for the rabbit sounds, I personally think that they should go, "re-brreebr-yip"
