Character Animation - Orc Marauder
12 Nov | 10:00 am

Here's another quick look at one of the new character animations for Vagrus' combat, this time the Orc Marauder's idle animation. Each character is going to have and idle animation (which may or may not have a more active set of movements sporadically appearing while in idle) and an active animation (when it is their turn). As always, expect more such reveals along the way as we are making good progress with adding them.

Character Animation - The Congregated
22 Oct | 10:00 am

Another week, another peek at the new animations that are slowly being added to our builds. This time, everyone's favorite Congregated is showcased. A semi-petrified thing like this undead abomination can not move a lot and we tried to capture that rigidness. Later on, we plan to add grey dust that shakes off of it every time it moves.

The New Open Access Build (v0.4.5) is OUT!
18 Oct | 6:00 pm

Key Highlights on what's included in the new release

 

  • Milestone 3 - Extended Narration Voice Over for Agos
  • Milestone 7 - Character Idle Animations in Companion Combat
  • Milestone 8 - Enduring Effects (it means curses, of course)
  • Milestone 9 - Random Passengers, and
  • Milestone 12 - Workforce Mechanics (partially).



The have been or will be game design posts about all but one: narration so let's focus on that for a second.

New Content: Extended Narration
It has taken much longer than expected to reach Charles - the voice of Agos the Wanderer - due to some personal matters as well as his change of career. We are happy to share that now we have all the narration recorded for Agos through-out Pilgrims of the Wasteland, and even for the beginning of the main game as he leaves your comitatus after sharing his story. We plan to make a few minor sound editing changes to these new recordings but wanted to delay this build no further, so we will do that in a subsequent iteration only. When playing the PotW story, it gives so much to it already that we think you will like this a lot. Also, here's a shout-out for Charles' new focus as he instructs singers on how to become more confident. Check out and sign up to support his Patreon page if you are interested.

Character Idle Animations
12 Sep | 10:00 am

For the last couple of weeks, Szonja has been busy animating our idle characters after we had finally managed to settle on a process. There are still a lot of things to test and work out but after the first few prototypes we came to several important conclusions.

For instance, we decided to have two distinct types of idle combat animations. One would be a very simple 'breathing' anim that is the default one for characters, in an endless loop. The other is a more pronounced movement that sometimes breaks up the more monotonous breathing one. A good example is when Javek fiddles with his goatee or when Gor'Goro brandishes his axe and stomps on the ground. We may even end up using the latter type for character activations in combat.

But for the time being enjoy this gif of a nasty Scortaur savage that provides a glimpse into the future for our Companion combat idles.

Enduring Effects (Game Design Post)
29 Aug | 10:00 am

As I am writing these lines, we are actively working on what we call Enduring Effects for the game. What are these? Well, in short and to put it simply, these are all buffs and debuffs that last for several in-game days or are permanent (until removed somehow). They come in a variety of types and can be used for a lot of things to enhance gameplay and narrative alike.

Character Design - Part 3
08 Nov | 10:00 am

In the last part of our character design series, we talked about what goes into conceptualizing and designing characters and touched upon how Bazsó came up with distinct the art style for characters and how Szonja raised the bar when working with the majority of them.

Now it's time to discuss what actually happens after the initial phase of concepts and moodboards. Mind you, this will probably have information that is well-known by any graphic designers who work on 2D character art; yet others may find it intriguing.
