  1. Alright! We took a break from texturing the humans to start working on the shape-shifting Tsi-Hu. These aliens have 2 forms: a humanoid form for ranged combat, armed with rifles and grappling hooks, and a beast form for hand to hand combat.

    Joe will be streaming the beast modeling process on Sunday here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSieVxJhO1EbiRVn3XfYerA

    [UPDATE: Stream is Sunday 6pm to 8pm PST!]

    Meanwhile, Alejandro has put about 5 hours into this VERY rough sculpt of the Tsi-Hu humanoid. Check out this rough WIP!

    After the Tsi-Hu are modeled, we only need the guns and the Kaiju made and we are set for all the character art assets for the playable mockup!

    Thanks for reading!

  3. Thread: Fatigue for this Genre before Em8er is released?

  4. Well Em-8ER is not about doing missions or quests. Its a persistent wargame with personal mechs vs an invading army with their Kaiju beasts.

    Also, Anthem and Destiny 2 are instanced small squad games. Even Warframe open word is limited to just your squad. Em-8ER allows potentially hundreds of players in a massive warzone (final numbers TBD).

    Finally, what scummy micro-transactions? We don't sell power. We sell cosmetics. So...what are you referring to?

  6. Here we go! Adding textures to the Gatestriders now. Still not real hair (What you see is temp), but we will be using modern hair techniques instead of "good old helmet hair."

    Enjoy these shots of our WIP!

    We use a program called Substance Painter to quickly texture all our models. You got to see a stream of Joe using it to texture a crate before. Its a really neat way to paint realistic materials like skin and leather and metal onto your models. It can even automatically weather the surface you are painting, chipping away paint at edges, etc.

    Enjoy and see you next week!

  8. Okay, Joe textured and baked out the Omniframe. It is DONE. We will be passing this to the riggers/animators next week. Joe did a terrific job. He is also going to be tweaking the color to fit our snow/lava scene better in the coming days.

    We also have been tuning the Kaiju concept, adding a rearing stance to fight the THMPR. We've also added some shield generators to the back that players will be able to shoot at:

    Thanks for tuning in! We'll post better lit beauty shots of the Omniframe in its new color scheme next time.
