See you in 4019!

That looks amazing! Love the atmosphere. Gets me thinking about the Prometheus movie.
Looking forward and hoping for some deep existential story there! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Thanks! We hoping too :wink:

Very beautiful! I’ve made your game Pic of the Day on the launcher :smiley:

wow very nice design. love the fast emptiness but still have a interesting horizon.
Any change you like to share a small portion of your one way chamber design? I’ve been looking for that for a while now.
looking forward to a finished product!

Ooooooh :smiley: gorgeous!

Wow! Big thanks!

Thanks! Did you mean portal transition? We used this method:
Player on start is inside “bottle” mesh with render custom depth, 2d screen capture camera repeats player camera movements, portal is like bottleneck. When player leaves portal, trigger hides “bottle” and spawn one sided mesh “bottle cap” with render custom depth, so that creates illusion of one way chamber.

Cool stuff, like the style

Work that I wish that I would be able to do. It is amazing. Would not hesitate to buy if it was released.

WOW! You have achieved a great look. I especially like the environment, and the interaction between the sphere and the . Any comments on how you achieved that effect would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like simple decals to me.

Oh my god dude, how did you do the portal in the beginning of that first video? It looked so flawless.

I would kill to know abt the post process settings

Thanks all!

As said, this is simply spawn decal on hit + decal blend mode = normal.

Thanks. Already wrote it in post 7:

Unsharpmask postfx from Lightroom: Interior Day Light project by Koola is all secret + some color grading and a tiny bit of scene fringe.
