Hellooo everyone!

 

I'm going to be posting screenshots, gifs, and other fun tidbits from our new project in this here thread. I know some of you might be interested in game design, so I'll also post some details about our process. 

 

Please note that everything I'm going to post is very much a work-in-progress. That means stuff is not in it's final form and may look different when we launch. 

 

The brainstorming phase

-brainstorm a theme that we like to make the whole world have a sense of consistency and depth

-we researched a ton of real life examples to draw from, like funky playgrounds, interesting geometric shapes, and cool architecture

-illustrate examples of common objects, like chairs, benches, lightposts, houses, etc that fit the theme

-bring the illustrations to a big meeting with the team, discuss what we like and don't like about them 

-repeat this process a bunch of times until we settle on designs we like and solidify the theme we're going for

 

The 2D illustration phase

-illustrate locations, such as a shop, a library, or a town, using the style and designs we'd brainstormed

-bring them to a meeting and have a discussion about it, decide what we like and don't like

-repeat THAT a bunch of times

 

The 3D modeling phase

-3D model the locations we're happy about

-Have a meeting and decide if we like how the 2D illustration translated into a 3D model, because often it will look different than we imagined once it's in full 3D

-Repeat that and tweak areas that we aren't happy with

 

The coloring phase

-Way back in the brainstorming phase we came up with a color palette we liked, so we now take the 3D models and color them using that palette 

-What a surprise: have another meeting showing off examples of the colored models and decide if the colors work or not, we color each model in a variety of ways so we can decide what we like best

 

That's a bit about our design process!

 

-Becky B

This is an example of what something fully colored can look like. 

 

It’s a really wonderful experience for us to see designs come to life with color, even we end up choosing a different color direction.

 

You’ll be able to reach this book platform and hang out up there!

This is a dance floor! Listen, we couldn't have a dancey boi emote without having a dance floor. That would just be ridiculous.

 

One process we went through was a sort of "funkification" of objects. On first pass, we might have perfectly rectangular speakers. But we found that style was not what we wanted, it made the world feel less quirky and interesting. So now the dance floor has slightly uneven tiles, the speakers are a little wonky, the DJ booth is bent. We went throught this process for a bunch of different spaces. 

 

@Chai A launch date is something I can't share yet! All I can say is everything coming together pretty quickly.

 

@Catte it will be available on both the site and as a mobile app. And yes, it will have chat :)

Ooh, cool! I hate dancing but I've never tried virtual dancing, maybe I'd like that... I am actually very good at freeze dancing, becuase I actually freeze dance. Stand still, frozen in one position, only moving to dip another marshmallow in the chocolate fountain. Mmmmm...

First things first, here's an update!

 

The past week or so we've been figuring out the colors and environmental feel. It was a tough process, because we wanted to make it look unique but not too too stylized. 

 

In the past 24 hours, a lot has come together! This is a first look at one of the areas in the world.

 

Also @Catpizza that's very cool you're learning about 3D modeling! What are you learning? 

 

@Bracha I like this concept of freeze dancing. As well as chocolate fondue fountains with marshmellows. The ideal type of dance is one where you get to eat food.

@Brrr-cky I'm learning about how 3D modeling is a representation of a three-dimensional object and it is used in applications and of course, computer game creation. Now I have a question for you, did you and the other Admins use rigs?

I've also got a much larger update post I'm working on that will give more details as to, well, everything. I'm sure it will answer many of your questions so stay tuned for that.
