General Design Principles

General, Paulo — Posted by ilathid @ 20 August, 2011 07:23

Hello, it's Paulo again!

 

 

Now to talk about general design principles.


One thing every aspiring game designer should have in mind is that everything MUST BE DONE ON PURPOSE. You just do not throw game elements around because they're cool. Dissonant elements do the charming trick of not only taking the player out of the game, but of making them stop playing the game, and, in some extreme cases, making them return the game to the shop claiming a defect and making them trade your game for the first thing they see on the shelf.


In short, not good.

Update on Upcoming Demo

Jennifer — Posted by ilathid @ 19 August, 2011 21:34

Back in April I mentioned we were trying to finish a new demo in a scorching 30 day blitz. The operational part of the post was the following:

Not that we finished it all on schedule (let's just throw back 
our heads and laugh at that silly idea)

At any rate, it's time for a progress update. We're done with the modeling, sounds, voice recordings, landscaping and a bit of the rendering. Which leaves the animations, the rest of the renderings, the coding for the navigation, some voice alteration, and the puzzle logic.

But--due to some problems one of our team members is having, we'll have to put this on hold for awhile (a month or so, I guess).

I thought I'd share some of the work done for the demo here. This animal is called the stinger snail. (Due to the import process from Blender to Bryce, the snail won't look this good in the demo, but in the final version it should look right.)

Stinger Snail


Game Background

General, Paulo — Posted by ilathid @ 02 August, 2011 14:41

And now, a post about our game.


First, we must talk about our background. I'll try not to be too spoilerific here, but be warned.


To start, as I believe you know if you're reading this. The Ages of Ilathid (TAOI, to its friends), is set on the D'ni universe. If you do not know about the D'ni universe, I'll recommend you to get the original Myst games and the Myst books. The books are important too. But you may also read reference sites, like this one:

http://dnidesk.rivenwolf.net/refindex.html

Now that you know a little or a lot about the D'niverse, read on...
