A Goodbye to Elementa

 After a year of working on Elementa, we regret to announce that we are canceling the project. We had a great time working on the game, creating incredible art and building many cool features. Thanks for everyone who supported our development through contributions, testing, and feedback.

arm tests

Here are a few pages to see the direction ideas are heading.

UI Reformat

What are your thoughts on moving towards a sparse, but more traditional UI layout?  
  • A button bar at the bottom
  • XP centered above it.  
  • Health in the top corner. 
  • Mana replaced by a cooldown system. 
  •  Current mission info in the upper right corner.

Spell Progression Idea

This is an alternative method of character progression we can pursue: procedural spells.  Start with how the spell is cast, then add the base element.  For additional punch, you can add another effect at additional cost.

Quick Creature_Low-Res

Finished texturing the quick creature. Will still probably need some work done to match the other textured characters in the game.

Main Character_Top Down

I tried to get a good angle with approximate scale to what the character would look like in game to get an idea if you could see tell he has a mohawk. Computer's connection to the internet is too slow right now to upload a full turnaround, but these images should give a good idea of what he will look like.

I decided to texture the character to see what he would look like with his new hair. I might change the shape of his head because it looks a little wide when viewing from the front. The hair might be changed a little bit because it seems too cluttered along the sides and back, but I think the spikes part is good.

Final Character - New Hair


Since the majority was 1 and 2, I combined them both like Nathan's suggestion. It is now an ice-mohawk. I'm thinking this might be the final look, what does everyone think?

I worked on a few hairstyles for the main character. I wasn't sure if we should go for ice or actual hair and I was trying to keep it fairly simple since it's going to have to match with the hi-res as well. Anyway, these are just a few that I threw together real quickly to get a general direction. Any thoughts on what is working, and what isn't working so I can get a more complete idea?

Quintessence and Obsidian Shark.

I was able to model and texture the Quintessence and Obsidian Shark. The textures do still have some refining left, but here they are as of now. I also did a texture for the particle effect for the Quintessence which might need to be redone depending on how it looks in game. Let me know what you think so far.

Heavy walk with new skin and texture

Underground Quarry Level - Textured and Lit


Here is the level with textures and lights. I still need to detail the floor, and vary it up a bit, as well as touch up a few areas. Right now, it seems a bit purple-y to me, and we can play with the colors a bit more. I still need to clean up the Maya file, and then I'll send it out with the textures. Most of the light is painted into the textures, and once we have this in Unity with fire in the torches, it should look pretty badass!

Let me know what you think!
