DevBlog 139 / Wadi Sightseeing

Hello there!

Another week has gone past almost without notice, as we’ve been focused on QA, polishing and balancing of the game.

We do miss sharing all sorts of new content, be it concept art, new items or even mechanics, but we all know that the final stretch is a necessary grind to ensure that we can deliver the best experience to everyone, leaving us little time for anything else.

The whole team is eager to cross the finish line and see the result of our passion being experienced by you, and that time is drawing closer and closer each day.

We’re also bringing you a gorgeous scene, featuring improved visual effects together with additional hand placed details:

A Waterfall in the Wadi.

Thank you for reading, enjoy the weekend!

DevBlog 138 / Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you, fellow readers!

This year is going to be truly important for the Decay of Logos team since, as you’re probably already aware, the game will be launched on all major platforms.

We’re on the final stretch of the QA, which feels great as it has helped us find all sorts of pesky issues that have been eluding us throughout our in-house testing sessions, most of which have already been addressed by our man of digital letters.

Although we don’t have much to share for this week, we can tell you that the new trees shown in the previous post are fully integrated into the game, and we’ve also continued improving upon our VFX as well!

Here’s two screenshots of said trees in the context of the game, for your viewing pleasure:

Swamp trees.

Forest trees.

Thank you as always for taking the time to read our DevBlog, have an awesome weekend!

DevBlog 137 / New Year, New Trees

Hey!

This week we’ve been discussing some important aspects of the game, mainly the lighting and how we can use it to enhance and give character to certain areas.

On a different note, the team decided that it was time to improve all the tree models of the project and make them more interesting and coherent. We felt the old ones were too basic and that they started to stick out like a sore thumb compared to other assets.

Here’s how the new ones are looking:

The dead trees, on the right side are the old assets.

Some of the new tree trunks, on the right there’s an old asset for comparison

Meanwhile, our main battle has been squashing the last bugs and working on the final layer of polish of the game. We’ll keep you posted! See you next week!

DevBlog 136 / A beacon of light

Hello!

Today we’re sharing a sneak peek at two exquisite weapons that have recently joined the armory, behold:

A Knuckle set and a Mace.

To the left, we have a Knuckle set that is fashioned out of a certain foe that we’ve previously introduced, can you guess which?

To the right, our latest addition to the unique items that you can find hidden within the world of Decay of Logos, Lucerna!

What makes it unique, you might ask? This weapon has a special behavior that is revealed as soon as danger draws closer:

A beacon of light!

We’ve also continued with the usual polishing, optimization, QA and bug fixing, of course!

DevBlog 135 / Storytelling Decals

Hi!

Another week goes by, bringing further beautification and polish, together with more QA and fixing!

As promised in the last post, we’re sharing another example on how the decals can make a huge difference, allowing our beautification artist to experiment on the fly with different feels for certain areas:

Storytelling Decals!

The original room is on the left, unspoiled by the decals that are introduced on the right, covering the floor and the edges of the walls.

A whole different message is transmitted to those who observe their surroundings, allowing for that extra layer of storytelling that we love!

That’s all for this week, we have something different in store for you all next friday so stay tuned!

DevBlog 134 / Making it shine!

Hey!

These past few days, like before (as well as in the upcoming weeks, most likely!) the team has focused its efforts on crushing bugs, especially on the console versions, and on detailing the game environments.

One of the tricks we’re using to add that extra level of polish to some areas is the good ol’ decal system. Here is an example of how we’re going about that:

Decals really help us smooth the transition between meshes with contrasting materials.

We’ll share more of these shots to illustrate our fine-tuning process next week.

Till then, have a great weekend!
