[26-12-2010] Xmas News: Icy regions

Hi everyone, so this is the last news before the demo video (where you will be able to witness Koruldia in its final form).
As people may (or may not) already know, the main hunting territory will be divided into various zones. Because of the heavy influence of the local Korumons, each region will have a different environment.

You can notice on those (breathtaking!) images of the icy zone that the ice seems to reflect purple shades, the snow radiates its own light and large frozen crystals appear to light up the scene with a bright sky blue.

- Night never falls on this region where the snow and the crystals seem to light up the perpetual mist and haze. The pine trees and frozen flowers are under development and will soon add up to this misty landscape.

- This zone has the best harmony between the music (thanks to the great Dentelle!) and the landscape for the time being. Unfortunately you won’t be able to listen to this amazing atmosphere through the images shown; however every cloud has a silver lining and in fact, you’ll be delighted to discover this with your own eyes and ears at the end of the introduction of the coming demo :D

- Technical details: Fans will be happy to know that the opacity and the outlines of the 3D elements (cell shading) evolves with the rotations of the camera (Kayser also points out how difficult this task is because it increases the calculations by 50% :boulet:)

Here you go, the "Videmo" should come out soon so please stay tuned with Koruldia :)
