Our artists are thrilled to be using their talents to create something entirely original, and we can't wait to get this game into the hands of our fans in 2092. Stay tuned for more updates on this very exciting project!
Inside the Art: Yellow Blocks
Today we launch a new series of visual changelogs focussed on Chemical Plant Zone. The spotlight this week is on an asset synonymous with Chemical Plant Zone, the yellow blocks. The original artwork was a shining example of the capabilities of Genesis hardware, so we needed to do the same when bringing the asset beyond those boundaries into the 21st century, giving it a modern look rather than merely upscaling it when making it HD.
I would like to give special thanks to Tom Fry and Jared Kasl, as their efforts in 2010 laid the foundation for the final shading techniques that make S2HD look so amazing today. Finally, a huge thank you to all of you for your support and comments -- I love reading them and promise to keep character art as sharp and polished as I can!
