The update you've all been waiting for is finally here! The Space Cowboys Development Team has made great progress over the past month, and today we'll present a major milestone - the first Teaser Trailer. Along with the trailer, the team has made a lot of progress in other areas as well; today we'll showcase an assortment of never before seen assets - both WIP assets and final in-game assets. Your feedback is extremely important for us and many of the things you say we take to heart so if you have a comment don't hesitate to post.
The entire Team has spent countless hours and late nights to reach this milestone - a full trailer, using many of the team's custom assets. Our main goal is to create a working prototype; this will entail creating an entire set of assets including models, particles, music, and sound effects. The team is highly motivated and very professional, producing top quality work on a consistent basis; team leader and Game Director Roy Shapira is ensuring that everything is done according to the Petrograd vision and keeping the quality standard set high. We like to show you what we work on rather than just tell you, so check out some of the cool stuff we've been working on below.
First Person Arms Model
The protagonist in Petrograd is a Black Ops Recon agent equipped with hi-tech gear;
the First Person Arms will include a fully functioning PDA that will integrate to the GUI, along with matching suit, gloves, and pads. Talented team member - 3D Artist Anton Kozlov has been hard at work to create the Protagonist's arms, he is now texturing them with great care.
Finished HK MK23 mod .0 Pistol Model
The HK MK23 mod .0 is a 0.45 caliber pistol. It was specially designed by H&K with great stopping power, enhanced with unique all weather polymers that ensure excellent accuracy and reliability - a perfect fit for our protagonist. Team member - 3D Artist AJ has created the model, and new team member - 3D Artist Mayan Ariel has textured the excellent model, it is now being rigged and animated by the team.
Ingame Finished Props
The city of Petrograd will be filled with items related to their location, from farming tools in the rural area, to kitchen appliances in the city apartments. The team's prop modelers are hard at work creating everything from porcelain plates and closets to fully functioning toasters. Shown below are some of the props that are already functioning in-game, the Toaster with medium and fully burnt toasts, retro telephone and a scientific PDA.
