Hello backers! It’s Stephen from Nightdive with this month’s update.
We’re busy reaching our September milestone which we’ve dubbed the, “Adventure Alpha” as it will be reminiscent of the original game with the difficulty set to zero. You’ll be able to freely traverse Citadel Station without the presence of enemies, pick up items, listen to audio logs, read emails and complete the game’s objectives from start to finish.
We were expecting to have all the levels blocked out by September, but with no other details...however, Jonathan has been able to apply the textures from System Shock to Daniel’s BSP giving us an insightful look into the original game. The textures have been modified to take advantage of PBR rendering and lighting placed to mimic the original. Here’s a first look…
This is what we were expecting to deliver in September:
It’ll be a bit more like this now…
Keep in mind these are the original textures and not the final art! Not only will it make the Adventure Alpha more interesting but it will provide the team with a blueprint of how to approach updated art, lighting, level design, etc.
Besides that we’ve got a few assets and screens to share!
Robb has been working very hard on re-conceptualizing and revisiting some of the common items and elements on board the station. Objects such as doors, lifts, and items like the dermal patches are all seeing new iterations.
So last time we had a hiccup with the surveys for the CITADEL CREW MEMBER, CYBORG ELITE, and HUMAN CORPSE backers. At this time, you should have your survey! If you do not, please send us a ticket here:
