This short video from Bloodhound was shared by the developers (@DeadPixel_GS) in this tweet. The video showcases a few combat moves and a cool looking summoning ability animation. The background art and character design create a beautiful scene, and we hope to see more of this game in the future.
Earth of Oryn
In this video from Earth of Oryn, shared by the developers (@EarthOfOryn)in this tweet, we got to see the water texture and it's transition between different biomes and lightings. The reflection and ripple animations look impressive, and the graphical style of the game in general look amazing! We look forward to learning more about Earth of Oryn.
This video was shared by the developers at @a_b_c_games in this tweet. The video shows a beautiful 2D platformer with an impressive depth design and gameplay. The animation and the environmental design of the 2.5D space looks very interesting, and we hope to soo more of this project in the coming weeks.
Jumpin' Jazz Cats
I love Jazz, and I love cats. So whatever this strange cute game is gonna be, I'm sure that I'm gonna love it! This video from Jumpin' Jazz Cats was shared by the developer (@DanWoodwalker) in this tweet. Apart from the adorable art style, the physics and jumping animations look impressively accurate for a cat, and the music just makes everything even better. We are excited to see more Jumpin' Jazz Cats!
This video from YugoTrip was shared by the developer (@Nothke) in this tweet. We rarely think how traffic AI behaves in video games, and in this interesting video we got to see the developers performing a stress test while driving around a square, and it's fascinating to see the crashes and traffic jams happening in the game. We look forward to seeing more of YugoTrip and more projects from this developer.
