What kinds of characters await in Hoplite 1.01? Read on to find out!

Posted by on

Hoplite originally started with one character... this Hoplite guy...

In addition, there are a few other 'supporting characters'...

However, I recently put together a FEW more sprites to help enrich the game a bit. This includes new Hoplite characters, a commander character, a skeleton, and even a mysterious Amazon warrior (female warriors of legend). These new characters will greatly enrich the rest of the game as the hero travels along his quest for lost relics of the Ancient world. Each of these characters was carefully rendered out of iClone and brought into 001.

I also made some advances in the cropping issue found with previous exports by exporting larger-sized images (the characters are the same size, but they get what is essentially more 'padding')... 128x128 images instead of the previous 64x64. A little more power, but a lot cleaner graphics. In addition, the powerful features added with iClone 5 have allowed me to do a lot cleaner and more interesting lighting with additions such as Ambient Occlusion and some shader options never before realized. All this will lead to much better characters with Hoplite 1.01.

Next journal, I will post about the new trees and structures to look forward to in Hoplite 1.01. Stay tuned!
