Beyond Evolution is a short platforming experience/game that is based on a changing environment. While the world seems pretty natural in the beginning, it will shift towards a more metallic and fantasy like style. The overall look with its colors and contrasty approach is very important and sets this experience apart.

Silently I've been working on a small game for the last couple of weeks. The purpose: have something short, fun and visually pleasing. Especially the fade from a natural green to a purple is a key element, same as the shift from natural to a more metallic look.

On the other hand the project is like a first contact with realtime raytracing. Three types have been implemented: Shadows, Reflections and Skylights. While the former two are relatively feasible, the latter is quite expensive and does need a very fast RTX card.

Left is RTX off an right on, with maxed out settings.


Meaning it will still look great withouth raytracing, though with the mood improves by quite a bit.

Storywise there's nothing big, but a few monoliths with some interesting inscriptions. So if you want you can read them to get a bit of lore or completely ignore them, it's up to you.

Let's get one thing out of the way: the landscape is absolutely stunning. The visuals felt very cohesive and immersive and it was a kind of breath of fresh air.

However, where the game stops dead for me is the sound design. Moving and jumping doesn't feel satisfying when you don't have the footsteps to tell you precisely when you landed. Getting upgrades doesn't feel satisfying because there's no auditory cue that tells me that something spectacular happened. I don't know where to jump next because I don't hear the soundscape of the platforms moving. This game has your eyes immersed so well. You need to complete the package with your ears as well.
