Another Globe concept I couldn’t possibly be more happier with thanks to our environment artist Robin keijzer.
This is for our island that will feature treasure hunting and Vehicle combat.

Catching up on the character/handheld concept art that has been getting developed while I worked on the environment
This is the first piece of those.
Next I plan to work on a character viewer similar to the island, which will initially just rotate around the characters with the ability to switch between sets, but I’d like to expand that in the future to play animations and switch individual pieces around to customize your character :).

This is a demonstration of the Volleyball Fish for our project.
I’ve designed them so that they swim within a designated area (you can manipulate depth/length/width), which will allow you to customize the space they swim in when you are able to unlock it as an item to place in your personal Globe in the future.
When the fish breaches the height of the area you’ve given it to swim in, before turning around to swim back within the boundary, that’s when it jumps up and shoots a volleyball.

Our first items and music.
Demonstrated in the video is the first handheld item type. Each item type will have its own unique Idle animations associated with it.
Here is a clear screenshot of the Umbrellas - http://puu.sh/3lvum.png
And this is the original concept art for the items by http://woestijn.deviantart.com/

Playing in the background of this video is the music created by Kevin Green for the Volleyball Globe in our Social MMO project being developed for the OUYA.
You are able to preview and purchase an extended version of this track on his bandcamp here -

Music for our other WIP projects can be found there too.

"Shake fist at world" Animation featuring our first male character,
with “KHAAAN!!” as requested by our forum members :).
A bit thank you again to http://woestijn.deviantart.com/ for the concept art, as I couldn’t have created characters I love as much as these without them. I hope you all are enjoying the characters so far too ^^.

We now have a character concept artist helping us with our project :D!
Give a big thank you to http://woestijn.deviantart.com/ who will be creating a new male and female outfit approximately every 2 weeks, which I will bring into 3d as soon as possible after receiving them.

You can see the results of her first design so far here with the female character in 3d above, along with the updated shader which gives the character a more vibrant result. I will be working on the 3d male character next.

Credits for this image go, TO OUR NEW ENVIRONMENT CONCEPT ARTIST :D
Give a big thank you to Robin keijzer - http://www.robinkeijzer.com/
He is working with us to help design and draw the concepts for our environments, and all my expectations got blown away when I saw this, can’t possibly thank him enough :)!
If you’d like to comment on the design or checkout our project you can over at - http://ouyaforum.com/showthread.php?2598-A-deep-social-MMO-project-for-the-OUYA

"This is something I’ll definitely be looking into!"

I’m hoping this works as a reply ^^;?
Apparently replies may have been broken as recent as a day or 2 ago, so sorry if this doesn’t function correctly.
Thank you very much! Hope you like how it develops :)


Edit: aaand it didn’t, I think? Seriously no idea how this is meant to work, will just edit the above to make the original response I’m replying to more clear.

Here is our new character base for our Social MMO on the OUYA.
This is just a temporary outfit as I’ve based it on a character from one of my favorite game series (which  made creating this even more fun :3), just to give an example of the intended style/detail of clothing until we can get our own designs.

You can find the topic discussing our project here -
http://ouyaforum.com/showthread.php?2598-A-deep-social-MMO-project-for-the-OUYA

This is a new design for the character in our latest game project, of which the trailer can be viewed here.

You can read a full update on what this means for that project in our latest post at www.midnight-tinkering.com

Side note -
Going to start using my Tumblr as a location to post game art like this that I want to share instead of just direct-linking imgur images and sharing on twitter like I have done so far.
That way I hope to get a better use out of Tumblr and make it a more valuable location to follow.

We make Tumblr themes
