I’ll take this chair thanks

Michel ZieglerUncategorized

I’m trying to integrate the environment for dealing with unfriendly mountain creatures. In this case, the chair lift assists the escape of the player from the hayman. They are seemingly not that technology-savy. Probably, where they come from there are no chair lifts… Maybe another enemy type will be able to ride the chair lift? These are attempts to make the game world of Mundaun feel alive and interactive.

The player comes across a burning barn in the first night he spends in the mountains. It is then when he first encounters the Wayfarer and the hay men.

House signs

Came across these symbols called “house signs” during research. The letters in them are initials and the icons seem to have a meaning. I feel like they could be used for the characters in Mundaun, choosing or making up a fitting one for each. They could be placed on doors or shown in the UI when talking to a person.

New player

Created a new player mesh. Here you can see him looking in the mirror after finding a strange painting behind the bathroom wall.

Roaming haymen

I’ve implemented a system of threat levels instead of directly placing the haymen in specific points of the scene. It defines how close to the player they can raise out of hay scattered around the scene, how many concurrent haymen there can be, etc.

The bus in which the player arrives in the mountain world of Mundaun. It is based on an old swiss “Postauto”.
