11th May Update ~ Finalisations


Hey guys!

This week has been really busy. And since GM:Studio is currently very buggy, progression on NIKRA has been slow. I have, though, been finalising the colours and designs for NIKRA and it's contents.
All items are being redrawn, and the character basis is (pretty much) finished.

This drawing above was a conceptual page I did long ago. As you can see, the character in the middle is the same as the one on the Preview at the top. Believe it or not, I actually designed this particular guy to look like me. But don't worry, you're not going to be playing me in NIKRA. You'll be able to fully customise your character, and I just used me as an example :)

My visions of the new NIKRA:
  • SPEED - All but one parallax backgrounds will be removed, reducing lag. This will also focus the player's view on the actual player. Most code, like the (messy) inventory, will be cleaned and polished to a state of perfection for speed and stability.
  • DESIGN - Everything will be redrawn to fit the new style I envisioned months ago.
  • GAMEPLAY - All animations will be sped up, as well as timers for various things.
  • ADVENTURE - NIKRA was originally about a child in a vast Galaxy. But times have changed, and I have realised that something that big would frankly be illogical to complete. Places will be cropped, condensed, and concise. But still large enough for tonnes of adventure, entertainment, and freelancing.
  • STORY - NIKRA was and always will be a story game. So throughout your adventure, you'll find notes, drawings, and messages about the secrets of the galaxy.

I have also been doing some renders! Check 'em out below, and click them to view or download!
They all work well as wallpapers!

  1. Wow, this is looking great!! I liked the old look, don't get me wrong, but this looks way, way better, looks beautiful and original, great work!

    1. Thank you so much! That means a lot :)
      I hope you like it when it's finished :D

  2. Woah, this was quite a change from the old style. Looks quite good. Have the tiles been finished already?

    1. The tiles are being worked on still xD But thanks man!

  3. I LOVE the new art style. And I LOVE those low poly models you made :)
    I am also new to blender, but I could never do anything like that!
    Do you think you could point me towards any resources and tutorials you used?
    Thanks, and happy coding :)

    1. Tags thank you so much! :D I highly recommend watching all of this guy's videos: http://m.youtube.com/user/pigartt Especially the tutorial ones!
