Earth and the core worlds are suffering. Overpopulation and lack of resources are leading to unrest and desperation. That's where you come in. You've been recruited to colonize a planet more than 4 light years away. It's your job to save the human race from its own greed and consumption. The game is experienced from a top-down view allowing for the deliberate and creative crafting of every item, vehicle, and structure in use. Using a scriptable and dynamic artificial intelligence the AI Overlord will change up every aspect of the game. Nothing stays the same forever, making Worlds an addictively, dynamic experience with limitless replayability.

Post news Report RSS Violent Sol Worlds Tree Details

We are still hard at work with the base systems around rendering entities. We are nearing completion of this part of our development. It seems like we have a great handle on the layering systems and that they work together to form the transparency and the ground and top layers nicely. We have also launched our developer podcast.

We are still hard at work with the base systems around rendering entities. We are nearing completion of this part of our development. It seems like we have a great handle on the layering systems and that they work together to form the transparency and the ground and top layers nicely.

First Podcast

We have started our first Violent Sol Worlds developer podcast. This will be a bi-weekly podcast that will highlight where the project is going and let you hear it directly from us the developers and designers. Come listen and let us know if you have any feedback.

Art

To get a fully finished tree we needed a tree trunk. Here is the time-lapse video of the creation of the art asset for a top-down tree trunk.


Game-play

After we had the art asset we plugged it in to our current game build. This had a couple challenges above and beyond the layer rendering properly. We had to make sure that the physics bodies were sized properly to the scale of the trees and the scale of the trunks matched. You can see the trees in action in this video.


We hope you are enjoying our updates here on IndieDB. If you are, please head over to our Steam Greenlight and give us a yes vote now. Everything helps promote Violent Sol Worlds. Thank you for your support.
