As we head towards the end of a busy year, some of the team have taken a much needed rest. That doesn't mean we've stopped work on the game entirely though! Check out what we got up to last week, below. As always, join us on Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit for daily updates on Depths of Erendorn - now let’s get into it!

3D Modelling

Our 3D Modelling team closed out their year by continuing work on the recent armour sculpt. They added in the gauntlets that were created a couple of weeks ago and began work on the bottom half of the model. Make sure to check back early next year for the completed piece!

Set Piece Design

Our Junior Environment Artist was working on a bounty hunter statue set piece last week. This is being done to test out the functionality of Unreal Engine 5's nanite technology. The aim is that because this asset won't have any custom texture maps, including a normal map, it shouldn't cost too much more (in terms of file size) than a regular asset. In general, high resolution textures cost quite a lot of storage, but because it won't need any unique textures and the fact it's high poly shouldn't have too much of an affect on storage space. We rarely use unique albedo maps, so we can take advantage of tiling textures on a model that has enough detail in its geometry. It won't need a normal map either because it's able to keep all the definition we need in the mesh.


Sound Design

Our sound designer revisited our Blue Melmee character last week, revising the overall sound while adding additional texture and layers. In doing so, it helps showcase the Melmee's underlying brutality which comes out when they're provoked. They then moved onto the Frost Ant vocal selection. This is similar to the Acid Ant we showcased not long ago, but with differences in the tone. Check them both out below!

Last week our Animation team continued with our level 1 characters basic animation sets. They worked on the Gargoyle Flesh Ripper and Fire Salamander.

That’s it for this week’s devlog, and for this year! We'll be back in January with a run down of what we got up to in December. Make sure you check out our monthly roundup of November though!

November Devlog | Week #2 | No. 253
Throughout the week, the 3D Modelling team at Depths of Erendorn experimented with efficient hairstyling, opting for texture on the scalp for small hairs. They actively addressed issues with the hairline, adjusting the scalp mesh.

This week at Project Gamechanger, the 3D Modelling team demonstrated their proficiency by initiating the creation of a short hairstyle using a new tool. The showcased examples underscore the team's ability to construct diverse hairstyles, featuring short sides and slightly longer strands on top.
