I'm Jack, and I will be posting updates here hopefully a couple times a week until the "Escape" project is finished. I'm going solo on this project. In doing this project I am aiming at pushing my modeling, level design, and overall aesthetic appeal to my maps to a whole new level. I've never competed before so I hope this will give me some practice in meeting deadlines as well as simply stepping up my game.
With that being said, the premise behind my idea is that when the main character awakens he finds himself between ice bluffs in the arctic (where a lot of adrenaline junkies go climbing) with an ice stalagmite (or stalactite because I can't seem to remember which is which) pierced completely through his right thigh. At the bottom of this icy canyon the player is forced to walk and eventually climb out of it. He therefore must escape the icy chasm.
Hope you guys like the premise and I'll be working in the Cryengine 3 sdk.
