Stardock will be closed for the week starting on Monday, June 29th and we will be returning on Monday, July 6th. We will be monitoring support tickets and forums during this time, but expect delays in responses during this time.
Things are moving forward quickly. Seeing a drake, in battle, up close and personal is really cool.
One thing that I believe is going to make a huge gulf between Elemental and what we've seen before is that Elemental is a 4X strategy game designed and engineered in an age where decent 3D acceleration is the norm which means we can do a lot of cool stuff in terms of UI, game mechanics, and game play.
In the meantime, here are some new medallions:
could we see the drake? i know the whiners will complain about the graphics if they're not done, but those people have been bitching already not realizng they're the reason game companies don't like to show early previews...
Very nice. I really digg that artstyle.
Please show us a picture of the drake in action. It doesn't matter that other people won't like it, they'll whine anyway. But us Elemental addicted need something to tie us over this cold winter nights.
You are such a tease, Frogboy.
How much for a license to be able to play the alpha? Seriously.
PS art looks AWESOME.
Arm, leg, and half of an ear.
Also, someone keeps mis-spelling "cavalry". Right-most medallion in the top row (the guy riding the horse) is named "calvary". I blame MITTENS.
But.. you always blame mittens..
Awesome! we get more pictures. They look really good. I'm even more excited. (I want to know about the stain glass talk-to-the-hand one)
My only complaint is there are not already medallions of bear cavalry or sky sharks.
And new avatars up, here.Enjoy, all.
Edit: I just realized that I never thanked you. Thanks, Froggie!
Edit: Also, no bears. But there's caves. Bears lives in caves, right?
I don't think that quite cuts it. Thats like saying that there are skies and thats where skysharks live. But I guess the thought is what counts.
*Bear Calvery Emblem - it is coming 11/27 if I can figure out how to upload pictures*
Very, very sweet! I guess someone is trying to move in on my karma faming business...
Very cool! Thanks.
Sky drake??? Where's the sky drake?
Such a tease!! He's worse then my girlfriend!!!!
Yay, thanks! Now I have a picture A picture of an apocalyptic hellscape..but a picture nonetheless!
Thumbs up on the art from me too! I can't recall anything else on the PC that looks like it, which is a very good thing. With a limited budget and a desire to go 3D, most TBS devs are satisfied with last-gen graphics. I'm glad to see Stardock thinking outside the box to make Elemental stylized and somehow modern.
I approve of this art style.
Should be interesting to see the graphics engine at its completion and in motion... though graphics are the least of my interests relative to this game. =D
Amen to that. I played Star Wars Rebellion for so long. It had really basic graphics. A good game doesn't absolutly need nice graphics. Many companies try to hide a bad game behind beautiful graphics and this behavior sucks!
I really love also the art style. That's really interesting and one of the reason behind this is great (old computers being able to run de game smoothly). Thanks Stardock again, great job and damn I'm eager to play my first game.
The art style seems just right for the game. Especially the Mucha influences are really cool. The images shouldn't be too fluid though. I love the knight on horseback. Please add a similar knight on griffon-back too!
Great work! When do we get to see a dragon?
Listen to this Gorgon, it knows of what it speaks!
I did it by the way. Get your un-official bear cavalry medalions here >> link
As long as i keep enough to be alive and being able to properly play the game, that's fine.
And although i saw it the same day this thread was up, no one has mentioned the "Foot_Solders" yet.
OMG! Never go there - ever...
