I am glad to announce that we finally completed this project. The aim of it was to build something to demonstrate our skills in creating game asset. It took us 2 months of working during our spare time and a few sleepless nights to complete it. However, we would like to expand it in future and keep it as our platform where we can experiment new things from time to time.
As a 3D artist, I was in charge of creating all the 3D Asset, Particles, FX, Lighting and Camera animation. My pipeline includes mainly 3dsmax, zbrush, photoshop and Unity.
My friend Gennaro Zazo was in charge of all the Programming, Rendering, Physics and Shaders. He also wrote a paper to explain what he did to achieve this visual quality and you can download it here: PDF Download
We also had a Character TD, Marco Iannaccone help us to rig and animate the troll. As you can see, he did a brilliant job in very short time!
The demo is DX11 only and we tested it on machines with GTX graphic cards from 460 to 680. It should be running at least at 40 FPS at the resolution of 1920 x 1080.
The actual supported resolutions are 16/9 and 16/10 only, and I suggest to run it in fullHD to better enjoy it.
The demo includes a first part with a short animation and a second part in which you can navigate the scene in fly mode.
The controls are:
WASD to move;
Mouse to look;
Middle Mouse Click to Pan;
Space Bar to skip the animation and go straight to the fly mode;
‘F’ to show FPS;
‘ESC’ to Exit.
You can watch the video either on vimeo or youtube:

I hope you enjoy it!
