Introducing: Red Sol Extinction

Click HERE for full-size promo art!

In the distant future, a team of researchers study alien ruins on a lush, habitable world in hopes of claiming a new home. However, they must first discover what caused the extinction of its previous inhabitants: humans.

When evidence suggests Mars as the origin of the extinction event, you, the team’s top anthropologist, must travel back to a time when humans roamed the Red Planet. After possessing the bodies of two humans in different Martian eras, you can coordinate your investigative efforts through time, while trying to evade suspicion.

Red Sol Extinction is an upcoming original game for the PC, currenly in development by The Beyond Team, created in the classic 2d point-and-click style of games like Beneath A Steel Sky and Fate of Atlantis. It will be a full length game of the scifi genre, and will feature professional-quality artwork, dialogue and voice acting.

It is still too early to guesstimate a release date, but keep checking back on the blog for more info.

Creatures of Northpoint 01

3d Modelers, Kaelin and Yogesh, have been hard at work on the creatures of Northpoint.

Kaelin has been working on our re-imagined version of the Grahl, who serve as the rugged trolls of Northpoint. Here is our decided concept of them:

And here is Kaelin's current progress on the female troll model:

Next up is Yogesh's concept art for our version of the Ogrim:

And here is an early progress shot of the Ogrim model:

I'll be posting more images later, as they progress with these and other models, so keep checking back with us to see more content!

Also, very soon we'll be announcing our classic 2d game project, with new concept art, as well as a description of the game. At the moment, we're banging our head's together, trying to decide on a title!

Anyway, thank you Kaelin and Yogesh for your brilliant work so far!

Northpoint: The City

This week I completed the redesign of the city in our new wintery style.  Northpoint is the largest settlement in the Kingdom and is home to the powerful Hall Dunfell.  It is also the location of the land's parliament - the House of Halls - where the main political factions convene.

Northpoint: Redesign

Northpoint has undergone a bit of a redesign, out with the old dreary roughlands and in with the new wintery wonderland!

As a diehard fan of Bloodmoon (second expansion for Morrowind) I'd like to inject some of that old magical mystery and wonderment into Northpoint.

Below are a few screenshots displaying one of our new regions the 'Bernician Plains' and the completed location 'Albrow Farm'.

I hope you like the new direction.

New Heightmap

You may have noticed the recent landscape shots of Northpoint are now missing. I thought it was best to take them down, as we're now using a new heightmap (base landscape) created by myself, so the level designing will be quite a bit different, so those images are no longer relevant.

I just finished my work on the heightmap today and have generated the LOD, so now our level designer Ionis is going to begin his work on the land, bringing in rich detail and really making the world come alive. In the coming weeks we'll be sharing screenshots of his work here, as he progresses, so keep checking back with us!

[Check out our grid map below. Image has been reduced in size and cropped.]


New Modeler!

I'm happy to say we've got a very talented new 3d-modeler on the team, Kaelin H. His first task is to design and create the trolls of Northpoint; our version of the Grahl. Check out his first concept sketches below!
