So we've been rabbiting on for ages on how big the game world is in Malevolence *cough*infinite*cough* but what have we shown??? O_o
Well, in this very short blog update, we have a present for you! It's the very first view of an entire world section in the game! This isn't looking on the actual 3D world in-game, it's a graphical representation of the world data that generates the world around the player. You'll see something a bit like this on your in-game map though:
Basicallty, blue is water, brown is desert, green is tablelands and the grey areas are the icy regions. Looking forward to exploring it? We sure hope so.
It's still looking a little fractally at the moment, which we're working on (we don't like this because it's not actually generated using fractals >_<) but let me just give you a sense of the scale that we're talking here...
See this inland sea?
That sea, my friends, is roughly the size of the entire in-game world of Skyrim. Mmmhmm. We're not lying. And remember, this image is only showing a small fraction of Malevolence's in-game world of Ahkranox. The game world is INFINITE. It goes on forever.
So once this is more integrated with the 3D engine, keep a look out for more screenshots like this:
So ponder that fact when you get the game and you're sitting in a fishing boat on the Sea of Skyrim ;-)
