Making a Model – Peacock Spider

Over the weekend I began working on what I hope to be one of my most attractive creatures in Little Bit Lost, the peacock Spider. If you have not yet come across one of these little guys on the internet yet be sure to check out some of the videos out there.

I managed to get most of the model done and started rigging it up for animation. I recorded the process so that I could share it showing some of my process, and though I may not be a great 3d artist I really enjoyed modelling this one and hope you enjoy watching.

A Big Day Out for Little Bit Lost

Over the weekend I have the pleasure of taking Little Bit Lost out for a showing as part of the Perth Games Festival. Though this was not the first showing of LBL this was so far the largest with a crowd of over 1,600 making their way through the doors on a day not only packed with other events but also plagued by horrid weather.img_6501

The feedback I got was great with a lot of people really captivated by the concept of LBL even though it was still just bare bones. The main piece of negative feedback was the lack of content which I will be addressing in a big way over the next few months, so watch this space! 🙂

Beyond that I even had one player that was able to quickly determine a way to beat the game by not getting killed by the super ants. This was quickly replicated by a few others in different ways but was still fun to see that people were adapting to the world in a “must survive” way.

For this week I am just getting back into the normal 9 to 5 job and plan to smash out some work over the weekend giving myself a small break after a rewarding milestone.

Thanks to all who attended, the PGF team who got things going and all my other supporters out there.

Cheers
