What I've been up to lately

Well, this essentially.

It's an odd feeling seeing something you've been working on for a quite a while finally making a public appearance. I'm glad to see it's been well received. It's not easy to judge your own work. It's a bit funny that whereas people leaving comments on the trailer might say "awesome" on the overall experience, my eyes easily get caught on visual flaws and unpolished details. But then I'm looking at these things on a daily basis. What's glaringly obvious to me is apparently not so obvious to the average viewer. As an exercise to the viewer, spot the bug between say 0:25 and 0:45.

On a related note, there's another Avalanche game out there called theHunter. I haven't blogged about it before, but it's actually been out there for a while, having had a soft release over the last few months. So while waiting for JC2 to arrive, give it a shot. It's actually for free. Here are a few of my own screenshots:

32s: The dude has no color

More seriously, I will take a chance: Around 37s, I see no snow falling, then 2 seconds later, I see some snow falling.

Heh, good guesses everyone, but you're still missing the big elephant in the room, IMHO.

Mavoubate, I think that's probably a case stitching together different video sequences, and on one it just so happened to not be snowing. Good observation, I hadn't noticed that.

Here goes my bet :-)

I think there's something strange with the weather... You see some considerable amounts of snow although the sky is almost clear ( and it's snowing ).
Now you would say: it has to due with the altitude low pressures.
But i could still argue that the break ( in the map ) between the snow area and the forest area is to quick/drastic.

Well... it could all still be a feature :-)

Hunter shots look very promising and awesome. Good job! Especially, that atmosperic scattering and dusk shading... Really cool!

My initial guess would have been at 31 seconds where the clouds clip through the mountain - but as that was already suggested, I'll have to go with the sky being pure white at 37-38s.

After 54 seconds a house behind the helicopter suddenly appears.
