Radio Noize! DevBlog 1: The Story So Far

September 16, 2015

 

Thesis has finally officially begun! This means it's time to start documenting the progress!

This is where I'll blog my developer notes about Radio Noize - an action platforming roller parkour game.

As it stands I've really been on and off of this project for a while, and mulling over in the back of my mind for the passed 2 years. That being said, I've now been committed to development for the passed 2 months, and I've made fair progress (incoporating knowledge learned from previous attempts, and other projects).

First, a quick look at Faye, the games protagonist, and her progression.

 

 

Faye is a former roller derby star from the slums, with a bit of an attitude, and, despite her outward reluctance, an inate desire to make a difference. She has a very Marxist outlook, but with a bias towards societies lowest and least capable. More that anything she has an obsession with cream soda.



(On left) The very first sketch of faye, sporting short hair, freckles, a gogo dress, sleeves, pads, a helmet, knee-high skates, fishnets, a vest, a ridiculous pair of headphones,  a belt festouned with bottle caps, and a ring on her middle finger.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

(On right) Faye's first 3D render traded out her gogo dress for a T-shirt and a mini skirt (largely because they were easier) and dropped the pads, fishnets, belt, and middle finger ring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Above) Dubbed Faye-Revisit during development, a second attempt was made to model Faye which looked back to her original design more, bringing back the gogo dress, the bottlecap belt (now with a seatbelt buckle), and the pads, while ditching the vest. This version of Faye felt close, but I felt I could really push her anatomy further to bring her into the current generation of game graphics.

Which finally leaves us with Faye-Rebirth (Or Faye-Re for short) (Bellow). Her Proportions being much more realistic, dropping the pads, adding an arm tattoo, switching her sleeves from a candy clour to more of a subtle pallete matching the rest of her outfit, and switching her big antenae headphones out for more of a pixie wing design,
