This is a project I put on hold for a while called In The Headlights. I recently came back to it to try to bust down the blockade I faced months ago.
I was frustrated having issues getting animations to work for this character model, but I finally got them working! Her name's Shay and I'm so happy to have another character in game! 👏 #screenshotsaturday#mixamo
Thank you all for the support! Means a lot! Time to re-cap. What did you guys think? Any favourites, hits or misses? Now is the perfect time to ask about anything you feel curious about. ~
In retrospective this year was way more challenging for me than the last year. The prompts made by @judebuffumpixels had a lot of marginally not very popular animal hybrids or multiheaded beasts that as a storyteller I felt like needed proper visual introduction or the viewer would be lost (still took the risk and went for it few times: days 4, 7, 18 and 21). ~
Like last year I approached the subjects in a scenic view with some story elements included. This made the process quite time consuming and therefore stressful after coming home in the evening after work. I would had loved to have more time to do more research, make various sketches and experiment but in this case didn’t have that luxury most of the time 😅 ~ There are few ones that I hate and few that I like - now let me hear about your thoughts 🤓

🎸 Band meets video game 🎮
👾 We have some exhilarating news to share. A solo video-game developer by the name of @BladeSides designed a We Are The Empty video game that features music, characters, references, and more from the WATE universe. It’s more of a prototype than anything, but feel free to give it a go and let us know what you think. If we see that people are receptive, we will work with @BladeSides and continue onwards in crafting a fully-fledged WATE game. 👾⠀
👾 Here’s what’s even cooler; we want to bring you in on the process. Whether it’s voice acting, artwork, coding, etc, you could be part of a unique experience that may very well be the first time a band works directly with a video game developer and their fanbase in an effort to design a video game. If you’re interested in being part of this curious excursion, message us and @BladeSides on Instagram. 👾⠀
►Some important notes about the game:⠀
👾Play on your computer (need arrow keys) ⠀
👾Click the game to trigger audio (if it doesn’t work, use google chrome)⠀
👾Return orbs to the 🚀 for new abilities. Return all to end the game. ⠀
👾Keep in mind this a prototype designed by one person, to more or less showcase an idea. A complete WATE game could potentially be far more advanced and even include multiplayer.⠀
👾The game’s soundtrack consists of instrumental versions of our songs that can exclusively be heard while playing. We think they work exceptionally well to create ambiance. ⠀
We are looking forward to hearing your thoughts about this exciting new project. Enjoy!⠀

“I can’t recommend this game highly enough and I also can’t see a single gamer who wouldn’t enjoy playing it; it’s relaxing and endearing style almost makes me wish I could escape into that demon-filled forest.” ~Brash Games
KINGDOM NEW LANDS - HOW LONG WILL YOU LAST?
Tales spread of far off isles with mysteries waiting to be discovered. Rulers will need all the strength of their subjects to sail away and find new kingdoms in these New Lands. Kingdom: New Lands builds upon the award-winning gameplay and mystery of Kingdom Classic by introducing an abundance of new content to the IGF-nominated title while maintaining the simplicity and depth that legions of monarchs have come to experience and enjoy.
Travel to the New Lands and welcome the deluge of new mounts, merchants, and vagrants that call these isles home, but be wary of the new obstacles that threaten your arrival -- for not just the greedy creatures block your way but even the environment itself can defeat you.
Kingdom: New Lands asks you to puzzle things out on your own. You'll come across items, NPCs, and mysterious statues to help you, but you'll have to figure out just how exactly they'll aide you in building and defending your Kingdom. Recruit loyal subjects who will help build and defend your Kingdom. Discover multiple upgrades for your homestead, different unit types to attack and defend, and secrets littered throughout the land
Be brave, ruler, and fight to the bitter end, lest these New Lands conquer you instead.
