Dev Logs #6: The Metropolis Improves, Moving Platforms, and New Avatars
With Love from Miami
If you have been keeping up with us on social media, you already know that Realm was at DcentralCon and Art Basel in Miami earlier this week! We hosted a series of Fireside Chats with some amazing panelists and sponsors, and if you haven’t yet gotten the chance you should definitely check out our Twitter and Youtube for recordings of those chats. We’ll be releasing more content and updates from the week, so stayed tuned, and in the meantime, enjoy this weeks DevLogs!
The Metropolis is Coming to Life
Many who’ve been following our DevLogs over the past few weeks have seen the Metropolis steadily coming to life. In this latest walkthrough you can see several new features. The Singularity animations are new and improved, we’ve added Court sculptures which are unique to each district and help define their identities, and we’ve added moving platforms to enhance gameplay versatility. We will see the Metropolis keep improving as the community continues to acquire land and begins to customize their parcels with their own artwork and designs. This iteration is just the beginning of what’s to come as we collectively bring the Metropolis to life!
As you saw in the first video, we’ve been experimenting with more complex movement paths such as 3D spirals. This adds dimensionality and dynamism to the gameplay. In this short demo, you can see our devs in the Godot backend setting up a platform pathway. Our custom builder tools and sleek UI will simplify this process so that customizing these movement paths and creating your own levels is a breeze, even for novices.
New and Improved Avatars
Last but not least, we are excited to introduce you to our new generation of Realm avatars. As you can see, these new avatars are much more realistic and beautiful than what we played around with, and they can dance too! It has been a laborious task to create and refine these characters from scratch, from the skeleton to the skins, clothing to animations! We will continue introducing new characters that you can play in Realm. In the future, you will be able to customize avatars with all sorts of outfits, accessories, and maybe even new dance moves. Some day you may even be able to play as a photo-realistic avatar of yourself or your favorite celebrity.
