Hayy! So the chances are you saw the video I posted yesterday of our menu? If not, here it is anyway!


The video quality is quite bad, sorry about that, for some reason only one codec would work and it was HUGE (1.67GB) so I had to compress it quite a lot. But because I'm so lovely and brilliant, you can actually demo the menu yourself! (CLICK TO ENABLE)


So far we've seen good comments on it, thank you for that! Currently I have a few more things to add to it, a model for the light, and a few more little tweaks to give it a creepier feel :)

Next up, after a huge discussion, we've decided to completely re-do Dead Street, when I started the map, I had only just started learning about the potential of the Unity engine, and we were importing lots of assets over, which give a lot of issues.

Example of that is the large building at the centre of the map, the normals on the model had been completely messed up and couldn't be flipped, leaving the texture to be applied inside out, which didn't go well when applying any other maps either.

However, don't fear too much! I've had GB working on a second map for some time now, which depending on how long it takes me to re-create this map, may be released in an alpha stage. You might even get two maps! :D Also, because I've not gained a lot of experience using Unity, I should have Dead Street re-build very quickly and to a much better standard. I've also taken the time to teach myself how to use Cinema 4D to do some basic modelling for things, so we're coming along well!

We'll have more info as soon as possible!
Thanks

That's been sorted, the "About" option is now "Options" which will eventually hold various information for screen size etc.
