Post news RSS Prototype To Beta: Iterative Game Development in Pictures

As Karaski reached Beta milestone, I took a moment to compile old photos to show just how much the our indie game evolved. Enjoy!

The Ship's Corridors were the first area I developed and show the most evolution. From crude flat walls, through blocky cartoony experiments, all the way to the current detailed painterly style. We've come a loooong way!

This Office illustrates just how much atmosphere the extra details can add into a scene. Just makes you want to start snooping around, dunnit?

The Engine Deck are another great example of how just even a little coat of extra paint can bring a whole new life to otherwise simple and blocky assets.

Passenger Rooms were another area from the earliest prototypes, showing how we slowly turned the bare-bones, purely-functional spaces into breathing and believable cabins with a story.

The Dining Hall was always one of my favorite areas and one I had a strong vision for. The Beta transition definitely pushed it more than the previous iterations!

It's hard to believe I began development nearly two years ago! The game changed a lot since the inception and, just like our first game Postmortem: one must die, took a life of its own.
