Just pimping this months siggraph event which is the making of modnation racers, put on by the Local Siggraph chapter and United Front games.
There are a bunch of people coming from our studio to do a wicked breakdown of some of how the game was made.
The first part of the talk will focus on the story of the studio, some the hurdles the team faced in creating MNR and the approaches they have taken to deal with them.
The second part of the talk will discuss some of tech developed, including:
full info and tickets are avaliable here
- Making Accessible User-Generated Track Creation Tools
- Terrain & Cliff Tech
- Dynamic Procedural Sky & Clouds
- Lighting Models
- Customizable Characters & Karts (Texture Stamping, Ornaments, etc.)"
tickets are 10 bucks for siggraph members and 20 for the average joe. Dont know if I will be able to make it for the event but figured any locals should definitely be able to soak up some knowledge!
