1st Day of JPDE-Mas [ONHA - Musutafu Konbini]
Hello thar, Meinos Kaen here and, before I depart for some family time over christmas, I've decided to share during these five days leading up to it five christmas presents which will also show you how our projects are progressing. ;D
First of all, there's ONHA and its backgrounds. The game will have a combination of 2D and 3D backgrounds models, with 2D provided as always by the talented Sa-Dui. The first background I commissioned her was a japanese convenience store from Musutafu, the main city where BNHA takes place and, well...
I mean, look at that detail! Can you find all the BNHA references? And Sa-Dui did nothing without any specific references for the items contained. What I gave her was some images of real-life Konbini and stuff from the Yakuza series, other than details about what the function of the location will be.
The result was so good that I think we're going to use this approach of mixed 3D and 2D backgrounds in our other projects too. I mean, 3D is fine and all but sometimes a 2D background can do the job the same or even better. Especially if you're not familiar with 3D development yet or you want to save on the polygon count... >.>
So that's present number one! See you tomorrow with the next!
