This is one of the most exciting times in a project for a producer. You work so closely with all the elements going in to the game that you sort of get used to them and take them for granted. It takes months of working on the programming and art backgrounds and such and even as you get to play builds as you go the progress seems so slow (most of the work happening behind the scenes so to speak). Then come animations. This is when the game really starts to come alive, visually. I wish I could convey how great the animations work in this blog but I know I can’t do it justice without showing the actually gameplay. Here is a shot of one of the beautiful backgrounds:
If you could imagine fireflies buzzing around the lights, and the city lights twinkling I know you would feel as I do. There are so many other subtle animations going on that it really is a drastic contrast to the still backgrounds we have been working with for the past few months. The world is coming to life! Can’t wait to share it with all you in its full glory!
