Thanks to this training, she was able to acquire new skills, particularly in animation and illustration, which she now uses for Virtual Society.

Weekly review #22

Hi folks! This week has been a bit special because the whole team gathered in Nancy! It allowed us to make progress on many fronts and finally meet each other in person.

Artistic Direction and Graphic Design

With our three graphic designers, Mélissa, Paul, and Chloé, being together this week, we were able to make significant strides in choosing the artistic direction for the characters. Ensuring that all the game's graphical elements are cohesive with each other is quite challenging. So, we had to create numerous mood boards again to guide us in the right direction.

To assist us, Mélissa completed the diorama she started last week, which already helped establish certain criteria. We opted for a painted texture style with stylized and rounded shapes. Mélissa's work completely won us over, and we hope you'll love it just as much!

Progress on Characters

Now that Paul has joined the team, we will finally see some advancement on the characters! Currently, he is only at the stage of graphic research and character design. It's not an easy task given the level of customization we would like to achieve.

Virtual Society gets a makeover

This week, Nico worked on redesigning the Virtual Society website to align it more with the game's graphics. The website's overhaul will provide better visibility for news and everything related to the team. Chloé will gradually add illustrations to make it closer to the game's graphical style. The new version should be coming very soon!

Multiplayer Interactions

For several weeks now, Jimmy has been diligently working on the code for managing the game's multiplayer features. Currently, he's focusing on the ping system. The idea is to create localized notifications in multiplayer.

Advancements in the Quest System

Meanwhile, Clélie has made good progress on the quest structure. She is developing a comprehensive description of all the necessary elements for the proper functioning of this system and how it should work in an editor.

Thank you for your support, and see you next week!
