Post news RSS Main Residential Complex: Central Hall

This update focuses on one of the new sections in Elwood's Bunker: The Central Hall.

Posted by on

These concepts were created by Marius Andrei at Mariusandrei.wordpress.com based on my rough map layout and atmospheric specifications.

The above concepts show the central hall in the main residential area. It has a holographic projection of the sky along with plant life, making for an interesting contrast between the dark, grim atmosphere and the peaceful holographic clouds and greenery.

The central hall was used as a way to allow the wealthier residents to mingle in a more peaceful environment and have easy access to other parts of the bunker. There are several shops/services available from this area, along with the tunnel down to the panic room and lower residences.

In addition to these things, I have been developing motion capture tests to help stimulate the player with eerie human apparitions and flashbacks to give the characters more realistic qualities when they are visible in cutscenes/etc.
