Dev Diary #10 - It Whale be okay (*minor spoiler*)
It has been an over-(whale)mingly isolated year & its tricky to be working from home on any kind of project, but our team took it upon our shoulders to see it as a chance to evolve, to learn to communicate more efficiently and have a clearer workflow between one another! It takes some adjustments for everyone, but everything (whale) be okay :)
Ok, so enough with the pun-tastic introduction - but there's of course an awesome reason for that;
Meet Whale-iam, named after one of our artist, but this is drawn and designed by our super-talented character artist Gaby, very WHALE done Gaby! (ok no more puns).
There are an ensemble of ancient creatures that we will be encountering throughout the journey in SAMUDRA, each presenting its own spin on environmental issues and this is one of them. Based of course on the largest creature the humankind had ever known to exist, the majestic Blue Whale. It can grow up to 30 meters in length and 180 metric tons in weight, its humongous, ginormous, titanic. Its so massive, that you could probably, just probably...fit an entire level in it......hmmm...
Earlier design of the whale featured multiple eyes to convey some kind of mutation due to pollution exposure from the world around it, however we opted to adjust the design to a more minimalist one . All of the design included a lot of tear and wear to the Whale's body, littered with rubbish, fishing nets, barnacles and such to convey its age and what it has been through.
Anyway, I haven't been sharing much on any of the NPC subjects in the game at all, most of the reveal so far had been environment/ location related - though you could indeed see the environment itself as a huge character in this game. So we'll be revealing a lot more key characters as we get closer to the project launch! So stay tuned and feel free to give us a feedback/ comment.
So with that thank you for reading this insight into our project!
