Free skies is a game concept developed by designers Manuel Scherer and Fabian Schempp over four months as part of their bachelors thesis. The video above was made in blender 2.5 to visualise the game idea, and they are now working on a prototype of the game.
Note: I republished this story as it originally had problems with the video
Free Skies is a game we developed with blender over a four month period, including game design, visual development, and finally a trailer. The game is about experiencing an ecosystem in a fantastic world.
As we only had a limited amount of time and wanted to show the potential and look of the game, we decided to make a trailer for it, which showcases how the world and the visuals would feel. We used blender for the entire production, except for the cutting and the text overlays, which were done in After Effects.
