Post news RSS New Style For Our Characters

Updating the game's graphics was one of the most monumental changes we've made since we started working on the game. We've revealed many changes to the explorable game world over the last few months, but we haven't shown any pictures of our updated character portrait style. Until now.

When we changed the graphics of our overworld, we knew that we would have to change our portrait style. The manga-looking characters did not blend in well with the more realistic environment. Over the last several months, we have been solidifying a new style for the characters. Today, we're very happy to present four of the main characters with the updated art style!

Many of the primary characters will have multiple facial expressions that will change depending on the dialogue. So far, the main character has 12 emotions, but we estimate he'll have at least a dozen more by the final version.

We experimented with a number of different styles before we finally landed on where we are today.

Even before we updated the portraits, we were considering changing our art style since the cartoony looking characters looked a bit out of place on some of our more recent battle boards.

We're very happy with how the portraits look with our new dialogue system. Next week, we'll be showing some screenshots of the dialogue system in action.
