Blackness fades to a cliff scene…. Don’t let the beautiful view fool you, things are about to get pretty ugly!
Work your way through a small group of buildings and into an underground Combine base.
Can you escape after stealing a sample from near the thumpers (That’s a clue if you get stuck)?
This is a design test which I had to complete in 10 days for the studio I have recently signed with. I am releasing it to the community purely for the purpose of providing an insight into what a formal design test looks like and what one person accomplished in 10 days. Obviously 10 days is definitely not enough time to fully complete a level like this, so this is more a representation of my improvisational skills, as it was essentially done in a spontaneous manner.
I wasn’t sure what the studio was expecting, so I tried to make an arcing experience with certain moments fleshed out to a degree that you could tell what I was going for. Lighting is purely functional, optimization is nearly non-existent, sound was a last minute addition, scripting is very superficial, and the brushwork was only enough to communicate the basic idea.
In the end, I was more concerned with getting the whole experience roughed out in a presentable state than toil for days nailing down one moment, only to find it doesn’t fit with something else down the line. The main sources of inspiration/reference were “Planet Earth” and a handful of images, the main one being Predjamski Castle. I hope this test is somewhat entertaining for you guys, but mostly I hope it is insightful and shows you what you can accomplish in a short amount of time if you really push yourself – like working for 18 hours a day =-O
