Working Overtime

by

Sorry for the lack of updates! Alex is still hard at work implementing the Apex Cup, which we’re hoping to wrap up this month. As for the art department, I’ve been capturing some shots for our Early Access trailer, which isn’t quite ready for prime time either. I’m also messing with promo art vignettes, which is a lot of fun when you have 3D rigs to work with. Just pose, find a good angle, light, and snap.

 

I might try to pump out some more of these, but I think I’ll wait until after I’ve wrapped these Sniper animations…

Logo Revamp

by

Here’s a logo revamp to accompany the new look for our stadium! Our old logo was done by me by hand, and I’m not exactly skilled in typography. For this revision, I took the same approach as I did with Outwitters: find an existing font that’s 85% there, then modify it to make it our own. In the coming weeks we’ll be swapping out our original logo for this one all over the site.

So, um… one more pass on the stadium

by

I know I said the last pass was the last pass, but this is probably really the last pass on Hex Gambit‘s stadium. It’s a little sportier, a little Tron-ier, and a lot more vibrant for our Early Access screenshots. I’m glad I took another pass on those tiles, this is much closer to the look I was shooting for.

Remodel Results

by

I’ve wrapped up the new Hex Gambit stadium! It’s pretty grandiose and faction neutral. Those Neptis aqueducts we were using will be missed, but maybe they’ll find a second life post-launch. Nice part of having these statues modeled is we can use them to jazz up the Apex Cup’s “map takeover” states later.

Speaking of the Apex Cup, our league metagame has Alex’s full attention right now, so it won’t be long before we all get to pick a faction and duke it out. We’ve got our sights on balance changes for the brute and two other characters before we all start really competing in Early Access. Our goal is that it won’t be suicidal to start a match without a brute on the board.

Here’s a few more shots of the new stadium.

More fidelity in the Outwitters statues, plus a pool of water under the big screen that I don’t think anyone will ever see.
