Post news RSS Son of Nor Dev Diary #20 - Touchy Crystals

We introduce the concept of magic crystals. See the difference lighting can make. And we tease our updated magic system.

Posted by on

This week we show you clips about what lighting can do to your scenes, what's up with magic crystals (which will play a role in the game) and a preview of the updated magic system. Apparently you also get a glimpse of me doing some stupid looking moves in my studio to show animators how I think the character should move. For this, I'll seriously consider hitting Julian next time I'm in Innsbruck. *Sigh, why do I have to release the dev diaries and humiliate myself? Srly.

  • See the difference in lighting from before and after.
  • We have 1 sunlight and 2 fill lights, one from the directly opposite direction of sunlight.
  • We integrated magic crystals that'll play a role in puzzle solving and fights.
  • To specifically touch up areas we use spherical lights where needed.
  • Updated magic system to improve usability in fights.

Thanks for not telling anybody how stupid I look...
