HDR is a real life effect caused by the fact that light sources can be much brighter than what your eye, or a camera, can detect. Some games do go overboard on the simulation of this effect causing games to look too "fuzzy" for some players. The key to HDR, like every graphics technique, is to use i...

I don't think the rabbits are going to be speaking english. I think that would be pretty lame anyway. I'm sure there are people out there that prefer movies dubbed too, but I'm not one of them.

The in-game cutscenes will probably be much better.

I think the plot is fine. There isn't much character developement. I mean, there are all sorts of cool movies with less plot.

Hey don't feel too left out. I only have access to one extra forum than you guys!

A lot of the communication we do as a dev team is over chat.

While the first game was good, I am looking forward to tighter, more intense, and deeper combat.

A lot of the hits in the old game had a somewhat soft feel to them, and I would love for the impacts to be dialed up.

Exploring a richer enviroment is going to be really awesome.

I'm sure you'll be able to remap the buttons in whatever way works best for you

I think it would be cool if turner used his super hearing like one of those directional spy microphnes so that he could overhear conversations and stuff from far away

How about when Turner smells something alarming, he sniffs at the air and his ears perk up, and when he smells something pleasing, he sniffs at the air and his ears relax. That would work, and not be too goofy. Maybe the rate at which he sniffs could be like a hot/cold game?

Ha. Yes. Actually there is an "open endedness" thread where you can post your ideas. The good news is that the game will be a lot like you imagine I think. The bad news is that the smell portion probably wont work. Interesting idea. On screen smell indicator? Picture in picture maybe, so you can "se...

Speedtree is a tree creation tool for companies that don't have the time or resources to model trees by hand. Often the trees come out generic, but I have heard this is more a product of laziness on the part of the people using the software, and that very good looking trees can be created with it. T...

Some control while in the air is standard in video games. Realistic control isn't always better.

actually, Sectaurs is a much better modeller than I am so it would be foolish to have me doing that. He's got the mad skills.

Hey everyone. I'm glad so many of you like the drawing. This one took quite some time to get right. One of the drawbacks of having such a unique name is that it makes it easy to find out about me. As you could see from an earlier post, I have done a number of different things. Some of my older work ...
