    Dibs on the horned llama!
     
    (OK, stag is probably more accurate but I'll be damned if I'm not calling it a horned llama!)
     
    Looks great so far. Can absolutely see the relation between the concept art and the knight's model.

    I don't think it's cartoonish necessarily. Look at the guys armor, particularly the scuffs and features that make it look worn in. There's some real grit and depth in there.
     
    If you darkened it up just a teensy bit (particularly his face) I think it would absolve your fears. I imagine it looks a little extra bright due to the fact that you're looking at a 'selection' screen.
     
    I do get a Diablo 3 vibe -- maybe even a little Overwatch thrown in. Neither of those are a bad thing. The former I would not describe as cartoonish, but it does make great use of color.

    Absolutely! GW2 had something similar with their RvRvR. You would intercept supply caravans and such, but it was a glorified points system. I want something more substantial.

    Trust me, I appreciate female characters that are armored appropriately and it is something I am always focused on. But not every female needs full plate armor. Maybe I should add some guys without shirts to balance it out? /evilgrin

    Some interesting stuff in the info drop today!
     
    Personally I am most intrigued by two stats shown in the Character Creation preview:  Hunger Resistance and Warmth Conversion.
     
    These could represent a great many possible mechanics. I think the most intuitive, because we've seen them in some other games is: having to eat food or acquire warmth a part of a regular routine, in order to stave off unfortunate side effects.
     
    I think that's pretty simplistic though. I think these are early hints at siege mechanics.
     
    For instance, hunger could be a measure of how well supplied your garrison is. Keeps and fortified garrisons inherently posses a defensive bonus historically -- maybe this transfers into a boost (or maybe even ownership) in-game. As the time you are besieged increases, your garrison's supplies could dwindle, and your own personal hunger would suffer as a result. Maybe some archetypes are more resistant to this penalty than are others.
     
    What are your theories?

    01/13/15 - City Siege Concept

     

    For our second update, we have a concept by Lead Artist, Dave Greco. You may have seen a small sneak peak previously.

     

    This is actually the second image we are releasing from the "Banner Concepts" series. The first was the 'explosive rune', which you can find toward the bottom of the website homepage. 

     

    The goal of the series was to create a number of unique images, each of which capture a single moment of gameplay. These images were not intended to be generic; we built these scenes using our characters, in our environments, acting within the scope of our vision. A single Banner Concept is the end result of numerous ideas, discussions, illustrations and sketches compiled over the last year (or so) of pre-production.

     

    While each image was crafted to detail a single element of the Crowfall experience, the goal of the Series is to present a more complete picture.  By combining all of the Banners together, you, the community, should have a feeling for the focus, tone and the scope of the overall game .

    Screenshot #1: Character Creation 

    Since this is the first screenshot we're releasing of the game, we thought it would be fitting to make it a preview of character creation -- the first thing most players will encounter when playing the game.     Why show character creation first?  A few reasons:   - This a functional prototype of character creation (with actual 2D and 3D game assets), not just a mockup. The character (the Knight archetype) is a fully modeled and animated avatar.     - That character will give you a small taste of the Character art style.  Compare this character to our concepts, you can see that we're shooting for a fairly literal translation of the style.   - This shot shows off the initial class (archetype) selection options, exposing the wide array of base characters (archetypes)   - It also provides solid hints at the inner working of a handful of core systems: Combat, movement, skills, advancement and (of course) character creation / customization   - It showcases the user interface style.  As you can see, we're going for a streamlined and modern look -- emphasizing quick access to game information over the standard "parchment and leather" fare.   There is more to this one than meets the eye... the clues are there, for those with a solid design instinct and an eye for detail.      
     
    Happy hunting,   Todd ACE   P.S. btw, don't take any of these numbers as gospel.  Many of these values will change (probably have already) -- and in fact, the scale will even change -- as the various systems snap into focus.

    I know the CSR guys were pretty sure that it was a prank call... but have to admit, I'm impressed that they kept with it throughout the whole call, just in case.
