Project Lab A

So school has officially started a few weeks ago and one of the big things at school is project lab, which is where I work two full days a week with other artists, programmers and designers to make a game. I am in a group of four other artists, three programmers, three designers and one producer. In this case our objective was to make a turn based race game for the mobile/tablet, the idea comes from Neppis which is a competitive outdoor sport mostly played in Finland.

In our game the car will have the size of a hotwheel just like in Neppis and will drive through a track which could be made by a child on the beach. It is much like midget golf but then with cars. I am the art lead and also responsible for the environments in the game. The image below shows the visual progress that we have right now. There are already some problems I know of that I am going to face in the future, one is the amount of blended textures that are possible for the terrain on mobile and also some optimizations that need to be made to let this game run smooth on mobile, but more on that later.

I also hope to upload some more pictures of a personal project that I'm working on right know, but I will do that when there is some more cool stuff to show. Thanks for reading!
