Seeing as the finish line is drawing closer and closer, we’ve considered posting less about development and just share some goodies such as screenshots and wallpapers for the time being, that is until the game is released, after which we’ll resume posting more insightful posts touching upon the future of the game, patch notes, and so on.

DevBlog 146 / The adventurer’s diet

Hello fellow adventurers!

In today’s blog post, we’ll be talking about the adventurer’s diet.

As you may already know, being adventurers yourselves, a dangerous profession such as this one can be very taxing on the body, and at those times where neither magicae nor alchemy are available, sustenance may still be within your grasp if you know where to look!

The adventurer’s diet!

There are, of course, risks involved when seeking nutrition from nature.

Certain sources of nourishment might get you to full strength, while others will surely lead to an upset stomach, or even death.
It’s common knowledge that the berries that are favored by many wild animals are not edible but fungi, on the other hand, can be pretty safe if you know which ones to pick.

What’s your poison? I mean…

There is always reward to the risk involved, even if the result is an undesirable one… * wink wink *

And on the technical side of things, we’ve been performing several optimizations in order for the game to be more stable!

That’ll be all for this week, be sure to stop by again next Friday for more goodies!

Thank you for reading!

DevBlog 145 / An extra touch of identity

Hi everyone!

We’ve done a quick balancing pass throughout this week, together with the usual work on lighting and bug fixing for both PC and Consoles.

One of the tasks we’ve been tackling as of late is the placement of Reflection probes all throughout the game world. Having these really allows us to add an extra touch of identity to each location, making them feel different, alongside the lighting, sound and materials.

Reflection Probe workflow.

In the image below, for example, we have a Reflection Probe with a fairly high Intensity number in order to make the cave seem damper:

Improved lighting and shadows.

That’s all for this week, thank you for reading!

DevBlog 144 / Painting with light

Hello!

The gears have been doing their usual grind, tweaking the lighting and tuning the balance while squashing whatever bug that remains!

We’ve decided to bring you something a bit more technical today, however, and this is in regards to the lighting overhaul that we’ve kept bringing up in the latest posts:

Probes among us

The pink fiesta that you see is a plethora of light probes that are being manually placed and tweaked in every location.

In short, they allow us to provide quality and accurate lighting for non-static objects while also providing some necessary light information for the static ones. Do note that this is very performant, despite the way it looks behind the scenes!

We’re also bringing you another scene that has been tweaked and is close to being ready for prime time:

Thank you for keeping up with our posts, we’ll see you next week!
