Today I wanted to share with you the plans we have for creating a top down small RPG video game using Unity !
BlackthornProd has teamed up with two other “we hope” passionate digital artists and programmers and we hope to achieve a fun and stylized little video game !
For this first game we are going to chose 2D pixelized graphics to try and reduce difficulties, we will be using GIMP, Photoshop and of course the amazing game engine Unity !
This game will be set in a small, spooky little dungeon. We are looking for a kind of fantasy environment with monsters, dragons, traps and more !
Of course, we are still in the very early stages of developing this game, many things are still undecided like the name of our game, the kind of monsters, music and tons more. BlackthornProd will also be working on a cool “poster / cinematic” to present the game, with awesome 3D characters and animation !
Down below are a few early sketches of our heroes and monsters, many things have to be changed but right now we are just trying to get down the main idea. Each hero and monster character will have a couple of animations like idle, run, attack and a special attack.
Finally, just to tell you that if you are interested in joining the team you are always welcome, there is always need of extra passionate digital artists, animators and game developers’s !
With Halloween coming up in only two days, lots of cool things are coming up on BlackthornProd, first of all, tomorow Friday 30th of October, I am going to create a tutorial on my YOUTUBE chanel on how to create a cool, cartoony Halloween JackOLantern !
Secondly, my 2nd animated movie “Sweat Pumpkin” is almost completed, the project was fun to make and the final result is pretty good for beginners like us. We still have to practise a lot in animation before we are able to produce amazing movies like Disney’s Frozen, Dreamworks How to train your dragon or even Pixar’s Inside Out, but we will one day reach that amazing level !!
To finsh up this post, we are happy to show you our newest character : Burny the Dragon ! This guy wasn’t made for animation purpose but to really practise painting, modelling and sculpting ! We really wanted to dig further inside of the amazing Autodesk 3D application : Mudbox. The Logo you can see on the dragon’s armor was made using Gimp, an awseome FREE replacement to Photoshop !
It has been almost four months since BlackthornProd started out its epic, fun and wonderful journey into game development, 3D animation and webDev ! We thought it was due time to design a Logo that would represent us in the world. We took about an hour designing tons of different logos and in the end 4 of them stood out from the rest. Here are our 4 favorite logo designs that were created using GIMP ( without Wacom Tablet ). Click on the image to get a better view of the logos ! 🙂
