Progress Update – Mansion art update
It’s been a while since the last update, mostly because I’ve been really busy working on loads of new art for the new demo level I’m working on. I’ve been busier than usual with my freelance work too, so progress on my game has been a bit slower than I’d like but things are going well and I do need to pay the rent and eat food regularly so it has to be done! I was also unhappy with the last update, it came at the end of a very unproductive month of not feeling great about anything and progress was almost non-existent. That is also part of the reason the update is later this time, and it’s not a ‘monthly update’. I’ve decided to make updates only when I have something worthwhile to share, rather than just because it’s a certain day of the month. So hopefully I’ll avoid doing another sad update!
Anywho, on to the good stuff – new art! I’ve been burning the candle at both ends (and modelling a few) over the last month and a half getting 5 and a bit new rooms done for the demo level. The demo starts, as the full game will, inside Albert’s mansion and progresses through several rooms which I have now… mostly completed. I still have some tweaks to do and the gameplay to implement but overall I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out. Each room has it’s own distinct look/theme and that’s something I’ll continue with all the additional rooms that will be added for the full level in the main game. Victorians loved their themed rooms, and it’s a great excuse to make loads of cool, weird and wonderful props, most of which are either a reference to something later in the game, a personal reference from my own life or a tribute to something or someone special. I’ve also had fun hiding skulls all over the place. Lots of skulls. See if you can count them all!
I’m planning on making a short video walk-through of the mansion area, but for now here are some screenshots…
Here’s the video:

So there we go. Lots. More. Mansion.
Next stop… somewhere beyond the Mansion!
