With the core gameplay ready to begin testing, we’re focusing more on creating a visual style for the game’s art and visuals. After some discussion, we’re looking at stylizing our textures and post processing effects. Our small art team currently isn’t equipped to produce a photo-realistic cyberpunk world. Instead, we’re exploring cel shading and other stylized techniques.
Here is a before-and-after comparison for the rendering style we’re developing. Keep in mind that this is very early prototyping and very much a work in progress.
I recently hosted a game development AMA (“Ask-me-anything”) on my Twitch channel (https://www.twitch.tv/silastalley) where I showed some work-in-progress gameplay and chatted with the community about the game. If you missed it, you can watch an archive of the stream on our YouTube channel.
