About

I am currently working on building basic assets for the game to setup a Whitebox level which involves only the most basic of assets to plan out where everything goes in the game. The game will be built in Unreal Engine 4 and published on Steam. I will do the 3D modelling in Maya and use Marvelous Designer for the clothes and Substance Painter for the texturing. I will also use Adobe Photoshop to touch up pictures and prepare source images for modelling. The history will be researched using the books from the series as well as supplementary information from Google. The demonstration will be based upon the book Sharpe's Rifles by Bernard Cornwell and will feature a group of lost rifleman led by a Lieutenant (the player). This will follow the history of the retreat of Corunna in Spain where the French pushed the English out before turning south towards Portugal. Some soldiers were cut off from the retreat and were forced to flee ahead of the French forces to their garrison in Lisbon. This story follows such a group and has fictional elements included as well.

I thank you for taking the time to read my proposal.

Risks and challenges

Being a one man band is a large challenge as there is a lot of work to be done in the next 12 months. I have a strict timetable and have been working towards the whitebox level prior to seeking funding. I have worked out my pipelines for workflow and which programs I need for what action. The demonstration will include 6 main areas on the map which will be made up of a bridge, 2 farmhouses, a village, a rundown castle and a town built into a castle. There will also be areas to walk so the map will hopefully be 8 kilometres by 8 kilometres. This will depend on how well I can integrate the map into Unreal Engine 4 as to whether it needs to be bigger or not.
