Post news Report RSS P:SI Update #001

In the second P:SI Update, I introduce a new video, a new icon, and a new Steam group.

The Icon, the Video, and the Steam Group

No, it's not the beginning of a bad joke. It is, however, the subject of the second Portal: Stay Inside news update. Let's begin, shall we?

New Icon

I've created the first draft of the icon that I'm planning to use for Portal: Stay Inside. Credit to the portal graphic goes to the creator/publisher of the "225+ dticons" pack (for the full discussion, see this thread); I recolored it, added the background and effects, etc. Here it is:

Portal: Stay Inside Icon (First Version)

So what does anybody think? All feedback is welcome.

New Video

I've also got a new video of a P:SI chamber! The following video is taken from a room in Testchamber 03. It demonstrates some moving parts that aren't normally seen in a Portal environment. One note: there should be particle systems below the switch platform that is hovering in the foreground. For whatever reason, the built-in Source recorder didn't render them. Also, please remember that this doesn't at ALL represent the final version of the chamber. This is an early version, and I will keep working on it as the never-ending process of revision continues. Here it is:


Once again, any feedback is always welcome.

Steam Group Open

Finally, another milestone: the official Steam group for Portal: Stay Inside is open! I created it a few days ago, but it's only open now because I wanted to reveal it with this update. Here's the link to the group; go ahead and join today!

Thanks again for reading and best regards,
WinstonSmith

Sorry, but this Icon sucks very badly...
Its totaly blurred and its edges are just badly cutted.
You should punch the creator right now in its face!

That icon will only ever be 1/16 of the size at most, so it's really not that bad.

I know it's a bit blurry...I'll be making an announcement regarding icons in the near future.
By the way, I'll be sure to try and catch myself off guard with a right hook to the jaw, considering I made the icon.

Why are so many people complaining about the icon? You can change the damn thing if it is so bad. Not like there aren't enough versions of the portal icon.

It looks great, but IMO the stroke on the edges removes the "This glows and is dynamic" feel. A bit much glow too. You should remove it from the edges and tone down the glow on the Portal. Like this:

*Different then the other one I posted which was pretty much a remake*
Don't add too many effects. Simplistic, yet classy (often with a simple gradient or shine) is one of my golden rules as a graphics designer.

Too much colour intensity, but better than the original
