MILESTONE REACHED

We’ve passed a great milestone - we wrapped up the vast majority of the 2D graphics in BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION! This means that all 85+ scenes, the conversational portraits, as well as the menu and item graphics are now complete.

It was an immense undertaking, but Nic and I are pleased to have done so on schedule. Focus can now be applied to the gameplay/puzzle hookup and cinematic implementation.

WHAT IS ON THE MENU TODAY?

We believe that the visual design of the menus should be indicative of the world, and the story themes that we want to invoke. The artistic style and interaction of each menu (and perhaps even the view the player has of them) belongs where it should in our storytelling in an attempt to immerse you in the world of BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION.


DID YOU SEE THE LATEST SCREENSHOTS?

If you follow me on Twitter @stasisgame or our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/desolationadventure/ you’d have had a peak at a few of our latest screenshots. Let’s just say that BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION will look smashing at 4k / 16:9 or 16:10!

HAVE YOU HEARD?

In case you missed the news, Mick Gordon - the finest video game composer to wield a keyboard and amp - has joined our motley crew. Mick has produced some incredible musical tapestries for the world of DESOLATION and we can’t wait for you to be transported there, audibly and visually.

"Mick Gordon is a composer and sound designer whose compositions aim to transcend the perceptual boundary between music and its context.  Mick’s work considers the role of music as a translation of the world in which it exists rather than a simple accompaniment.  Through creativity, interpretation and collaboration he develops a meaningful exchange between the visual world and music culminating in the authorship of a unified original work of art."

      The video is available on Edge and Chrome, in my case.

      I hope for enough time to play, when it will be finished.

      And the african soundclip is wonderful.
