about Starter Game here:
Here is some
of my work I've done while at Climax Studios in Portsmouth.
is the first complete game sample to showcase the latest capabilities
of Lumberyard, Amazons free AAA game engine. Think of it as
a whats what of engine features: component entities,
real-time global illumination, 3rd person camera and locomotion,
interiors and exteriors, particle effectsall of these come
to life in Starter Game in a big way. Its not just a quick
path for getting started with the engine; its also a great
example of what you can build today using Lumberyard.
Climax had 3 months to create a level that a player could run around
in. It was a very small team and I'm pleased with how much we managed
I created many of the assets shown here; rocks, foliage, the crashed
airship, the background buildings, crates, the huge gun, etc. I
set up all the Touch Bending on the foliage so it reacts to player
movement and wind. I also re-textured the main character and the
enemy robots. I worked closely with the art lead and had input on
the overall look of the level.
Everything is dynamically lit and there are time of day settings.
It was interesting to work with Lumberyard and see the potential
the game engine has.
