Houston: Expedition diary Part 7 – Lab module concepts

Posted by
Monday, December 29th, 2014 11:51 am

The expedition diary of Jam Entry: Houston, We’ve Got A Problem.

Day 24:
New item is available – Lab module concepts:

1-st iteration. Too cute again=)



2-d iteration. The main question – how the Lab should looks like? What is an exterior attributes of such buildings? In real life labs usually is a pretty boring buildings =/
And we don’t want an extra hi-tech with some plasma balls floating over it.

Finally, we came to this concept of an MRI-like construction. The idea – scientists finds some samples, brings them to this module and put into central space.
Then the scanning and analysis starts.


And here are colored ones.

We invite you to our page at Steam Concepts!

The expedition diary of Jam Entry: Houston, We’ve Got A Problem.

Day 23:
New item is available – Solar panels concepts:

First iteration of sketch – too much cuteness, lack of tech.

Second iteration. The main idea – all modules arrives to planet inside a shell and during installation engineers unfolds it.

Third iteration. We draw inspiration for this in the “Game of Thrones” intro (those castles are so cool=).

And animation concept:

Houston: Expedition diary Part 2

Posted by
Saturday, December 13th, 2014 9:09 am

The expedition diary.

Day 2 additional decryption:

We fall asleep only after first successful launch of expedition ship to planet Pandorum – «Hooray!»
It was exciting – finally, all the parts we made during the day now works together as one game – with logic and results.
But cruel clocks show 5:00 at that moment.

sleep

At 10:30 the team was already at work again.

We realised, that we have no time for much of functionality we planned to do =(
So we failed to implement in particular:
– Any tutorial
– Visualisation of expedition events (how astronauts install modules, produce food, fight with predators)
– “Houston, We’ve Got a Problem” feature – when we may tell them, how to solve critical issues.
And other things.

But – the game works and we still have something to show on presentation of Jam.
And we showed it.

presentation

Other expedition diary data under decryption now.
And you may support our expedition if you rate our game =)
Jam Entry: Houston, We’ve Got a Problem
Please, check the first screenshot before play – there are tutorial stuff.
