Today we’re sharing some in-game environment renders from the (still very much work-in-progress) first level of Static Sky, our cyberpunk squad shooter for iPads. We’ll follow-up in the next few weeks with some “making of” posts focused on the art and more of the tech.

lighting #2 – attenuation

This is the part of a series of blog posts on rendering in our cyberpunk tablet game, Static Sky. For an introduction, check out our overview of rendering post. In this post, we’re going to look at how light attenuates, both in traditional realtime rendering and with our modified falloffs for Static Sky.

lighting #1 – hybrid lights

This is the first of a series of blog posts on rendering in Static Sky. We yanked out Unity’s lighting system and replaced it with our own, super fast one that’s specialised for rendering tons of bumped dynamic lights at 60FPS. This post will talk about the hybrid lighting model that we’re using.

I took a some time last week to step away from the code and work on a little concept art to address one of the challenges that we faced when building the prototype that we demoed at GDC: too much awesome in all the wrong places. Ok, picture this: The regional distribution and processing warehouse for the AIOMI corporation occupies the southwest corner of one of the hundreds of non-descript industrial parks that encircle the city. AIOMI security has logged exactly two incidents at this facility in the last six months — one involved a would-be vandal and the other…

tears in the rain

If you’ve said Cyberpunk and Blade Runner, odds are you’re not making a world in sunset colors. Cyberpunk is hard, it is brutal. It is also a lovesong to the hard walls of the city.
