Update #31

TAKEDOWN Update: SCREENSHOTS!

Hello Kickstarters!

This week is a big one for us, we have the first batch of screenshots from our prototype for you!

To give you some reference, these shots focus on various areas of our prototype level, the BioLab, as well as our first enemy character. 

You can also view them on Kotaku here in hi-res:

Without further ado:

*Note, a few people have commented on Anti-Aliasing.  When we took these shots, AA was off.  Here is an example of AA on:

As always, thanks for your support!  We will be posting some additional shots in our forums, which you can join and get your special Kickstarter access at www.serellan.com/forums.

Thanks,

Christian

      Hmm, a bit outdated, dare I say, but still better that CoD (covers head, runs away).

      Well, it looks better than SWAT 4. BUT HOW DOES IT PLAY? Ah, but I'm sure you guys are taking care of it. Those areas and models look super sexy! Cool to see police-types that are dressed like police rather than Rainbow Six commandos in bomb disposal gear or whatever.

      Haha, Dennis. Once we get the core game to standards our backers and fans expect...I'm sure that will be something we will look at.

      Chris, will you guys be doing a mission based around the Kickstarter promo video which had you as a hostage in a garage? :D That would be pretty cool :)

      I also hope you can change things up a bit compared to well most/all games.
      Don't have everything superclean (I mean there are oilplatforms in games without a speck of oil in sight) superstraight and alligned. Have the chair in the middle of the floor (lying?) and tubes spread out over the desk etc.
      Ofc that hampers easy cut and paste of recources a bit which tons of games (understandable) do.

      Michael,

      Great feedback. The level is split into three sections: The corporate area (offices, lobby), the biolab section, and the parking garage and basement.

      The lobby and offices are much more corporate/fancy/bright than the lab areas. Much like the Pfizer corporate lobby:

      Thanks,

      I only had one thing to comment on, the images on those screen from shot #1 feels a bit bright and colorful and not at all carry the feel of an professional laboratories; on the other hand, those images may be for demonstration purposes and not at all final. Just want to point that out.

      Looking pretty fly there, Christian. I must admit I had some doubts/concerns about any new venture without all the people and money in place. But this looks very good.

      Good point, DHAmoKK, didn't realize that Kickstarter didn't allow a full image view.

      Changed it to a link.

      Hah, that lab level reminds me a lot of the last level of S.W.A.T 4, where the terrorists in hockey mask tend to run roughshod over your entire team :p

      Most screenshots reminds me of Brink. While I did like Brink (MP) I'm not sure that is all a good thing.
      It also all looks very clean and rectangular. Which is something all games do so its not directly horrible but just mentioning it.
      Thats as far as graphics go ofc but that is the update about. :)
