Em8er steps gingerly across its fire and ice tiles

Virtual landsapes are made up of thousands of tiles that are shaped and forged into landmarks and obstacles. The first steps to making Em8er’s alien world are complete, as the art team has produced some ground tiles to use in the making of the zones.

“Em-8ER is a icy/volcanic world. Volcanoes with lava flows exist next to freezing snow and ice. The idea was inspired by the moon Io, which orbits Jupiter, and the fire and ice terrain of Iceland and part of Russia,” the team posted. “To create the look, we first had to create some terrain textures that would let us have snow, ice, volcanic rock, lava and snow/rock combinations.”

This was dated on a Sunday…where news tend to be a little slow. 8-cause it’s the latter part of the weekend. :)

Not sure I care to trust their landscape tiles in this new game. Kern was head of Firefall, and that game’s tiles were all over the place. In particular there were 3 distinctly different spots where the tiles weren’t fitted to each other for well over 6 months. These gaps came not only as visually jarring, but also allowed for players to fall through the world between them. This was reported multiple times to no avail. This kind of blatant oversight to something so simple as world design in a VERY SMALL MAP (yes, Firefall’s initial map was small) for such a long time seems to show a poor management of design priority and organization. That means the top. That means Kern. Sorry, but this game has that signature all over it.

I recognize those render backgrounds from Substance Painter.

Open development is so incredibly boring. No one needs to know how you create each tile just put up or shut up.
