  1. Congrats on getting a spot on the Epic Games Spotlight
  2. But it's gotta be mysterious, haha. I also really need to work on my lighting skills x_x I always save it for last which sucks when so many projects get abandoned :/ Definitely something I'll be working on with this.
  3. Sooooooooo damn good to be back in the editor after the holidays x] Bit of background on this piece: I've always wanted to make a level that utilizes verticality in a setting such as a clock tower or something, but decided to go with a space station instead. Players, trapped within the space station will need to escape by ascending an assembly station and powering-up this large mech in the center of the area. Each time a different piece of the mech/robot is powered, it will move and reveal a new path either by force (ex. punching holes in the wall and opening a new pathway) or by mov
  4. Oooooh. Layers of Fear is free on Humble currently. Looks like I can finally give this a play. Seems to come with the soundtrack as well if anyone is interested in that :] https://www.humblebundle.com/store/layers-of-fear-and-soundtrack
  5. Been bored at work lately and decided to play around and get some practice in with sci-fi environments during my downtime Here's a small look at one room:
  6. Looking good! I feel like the rectangular shape is pretty boring, perhaps if you made it more circular or even just a bit more of a wavy shape to make your eyes move around the area more could help. The vegetation you've added definitely helps, but I think the objects could be placed in some more interesting ways, such as a large group of plants against the wall or around the center of the fountain itself. Ooooh, Or if you could add some sort of statue against/in the wall there and surround it with some vegetation could be pretty cool! If possible, I personally enjoy when fountains a
  7. Looks like Homefront is free for the next little bit! https://www.humblebundle.com/store/homefront
  8. Finish up my horror-themed game so I can finally update my portfolio after 3 years of nothing. Update my portfolio website with more development process screenshots and information. Create an amazing game (and levels) for another project I'm working on with a great group of people. Solidify/enhance my skills and practices as a level designer. Create lots, fail often, learn more. Get the fuck out of QA and into a designer role. Hopefully get a little pupper of my own <3
  9. I think you're definitely on the right track for lighting. The exterior light coming in from the windows certainly helps brighten things up and add another color to the scene, I'm sure things will look much better once you've got those chandeliers giving off their own light. Could be cool to have a fallen/slightly broken chandelier on the floor to try and brighten up the lower sections of the models. Depends how pristine you're trying to make the environment though, I personally find a bit of destruction provides a good bit of character to the scene. Or at least breaks up the geometric repetit
  10. No problem! If you're looking for some additional people for playtests or just general feedback, let me know Looking forward to the new trailer, really interested in how everything flows gameplay-wise!
  11. Yesss. Very excited to have another "hardcore" skateboarding game, it's been a long time since I last played one, but I definitely remember enjoying the earlier Tony Hawk games and Skate. I found out about this weird one called DeckSplash (warning: Trailer contains a lot of streamers screaming, haha), created by the developers of Surgeon Simulator and such. It looks like Splatoon x Tony Hawk's Graffiti mode and could've been super fun, but sadly development ended as they didn't reach the numbers they wanted during their "Free Week" test.
  12. Awesome stuff. It's looking like it's almost ready to release. Really enjoying the lighting of the level, especially what you've got going on in the 5th and 6th screenshots. One comment I'd make is that there's too much white light in the interior, which is making a lot of the areas look the same to me, and could possibly be a little disorienting to a lost player. I'd try adding some more yellow like you've got going on in the hallway (Note: it almost looks like only the right side of ceiling lights are projecting enough to show on the floor) to make the eyes move around or possibly a bit
  13. Yesss! More Suda 51 stylish, crazy goodness!
  14. Awesome! I'm a huge fan of horror games and Kholat looks pretty intriguing! Thanks for the gift, Bastion I've got a couple of extra keys myself if anyone's interested: Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition https://www.humblebundle.com/gift?key=VMRxduFZ8BWSThWz Wurm Unlimited https://www.humblebundle.com/gift?key=vuvzAM6PFsPbpbNZ
  15. People were upset that players could buy loot boxes with crystals (real-money game currency) to gain an unfair advantage in multiplayer, thus the whole "pay to win" fiasco, the loot boxes themselves contained ability cards. Additionally, players could sell any duplicate or unwanted items gained from the boxes for credits, then use the credits to unlock high-level heroes that would take the average player 40-60 hours to legitimately earn. They also reduced the amount of credits earned from completing the campaign by 75%, making the grind for a desired hero even more tedious (and that was after
