MERRY CHRISTMAS! (12 Days of Devmas, Day 1: Art)

Posted by Missing Worlds Media (Creator)
Good Morning! Merry Christmas!

Wait, I’m sorry.

 Hey. Hey, what’s that under the tree?

A box from us to all of you?

Shame about the hole in the side. I guess whatever was in it just broke out.

Why don’t you go look for it while I get the carolers worked up.

All right, you Devs. Ready to sing your song?

On the first day of Devmas, 

your dev team gives to thee…

A mind-control beard in a tree

 That’s right. We’re going to show off some of the work we’ve done, by showing off the special items we promised you guys during the Kickstarter. We’ve even added a few, thanks to a few new Devs joining us.

Keep in mind that this is a work in progress. We don’t have the hair system up and running yet, so you’re getting Dr. Tyche’s sculpted beard in this version.

 It’s escaped to Clarkstown! Someone get the net!

Oh, and one more thing. Meet Odo.

Odo’s an artist’s model we’re using while we continue to develop the base body mesh. He’s basically the successor to Blockman. He lets us continue work on the rest of the game while we develop the sliders and other parts that make the characters super. Of course, you’ll notice he still has every joint that the final character will have. Fingers and all.

 He’s the digital version of a wooden artist’s mannequin, with all the flexibility of our real model.

 This means we don’t need to keep the game artists up to date with what the figure artists are doing. We can just use Odo and swap in the final version when we’re done. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with him.

 Not bad, let’s give it some texture

 Wait. No. NO! The Beard’s got Santa Odo!

 Er… Excuse us. I’m going to go find some Nair, and let you guys unwrap the rest of your presents.

      Actually, it is short for "Odometer", since we expect to get a lot of mileage out of it.
      No, not really.

      Very nice! I prefer the Lore Updates, but these are good, too. It looks like the characters are going to have even more of the range of movement than CoX.. I love that you named your model after Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's changeling, Odo. Very nice.

      These are the sort of updates I like to see.
