Lightbulb Tomb Raider : Above the Horizon


STORY:
The game takes place in the old town of Metropolis, during the siege by Nova - an organization founded many years ago in absolute secrecy. Their sole purpose was to proclaim a new faith. They believed in technology and the existence of a higher intelligence which gave birth to our world and the human civilisation. Scientists from the organization finally found something that gave Nova deep conviction about the righteoustness of their theories and goals. The newly discovered element - Lumonium, was supposed to ensure innovation and evolution for the city.

Unfortunately, no one expected that the truth behind their fasade is different and that the members of the organisation have their own goals. When Nova reached the maximum of their potential, and gathered enough firearms and equipment, they have started a revolution, that has in effect led to overthrowing of the city's authorities and managed to subordinate all of it's residents. Metropolis was turned into a fortess, surrounded by a huge wall. No one could gain access or leave the city. Nova's fanaticism was revealed in full potential shortly after they achieved their main goals. They believed that the new element was not discovered by an accident but instead it was a gift from their god - The Bright Emissary. Soon Nova began to kidnap a chosen group of residents who have never been seen again.

It's time to share with you informations about my project and the gameplay video. I'm working on it since almost one year For a long time I wanted to start a game using NGLE + meta2tr but firstly I wanted to fully finish Ancient Artifact II.

I think that through this year I managed to do quite a lot considering that I don't have so much free time. Project has a lot of new interesting solutions and gameplay mechanism that you can see on the video. There are a lot of new movements, like climbing on vertical or horizontal poles which are places near to the walls or hang from ceiling, passing through gaps in the wall or jumping over low obstacles. Here I want to thanks Maati and Krystian for help with the scripts.

After the Prologue, which is also a tutorial level, I will begin to work on the next full level Generally Lara will visit in the game such places as old sewers, backstreets of the Metropolis city and factory with abandoned shipyard. Some things might be slightly changed, but at this momment it looks like this.

I like the look of it.

One question though - how do you get your textures so HD?

When I make mine HD - they look fine in TGA form, yet in-game and in-editor they don't look as sharp.
Do you use some kind of filter?

As always you did an amazing work!

I'm not a huge fan of Rise but I like the way you've implemented things from the game like the animation at 2:22 and the help system.

Your aniamtions in general are really great!

Just a question: when Lara jumps over the pipes, is it automatic or do we need to press the action key?

Can't wait to see more

Thank you Generally I use textures 256x256. However I use sharpness option during making video because youtube make video compressed and blurry.

I was thinking the same thing. Before I read who did the voices, I was wondering from where in the past two games Camilla said those lines. They sounded familiar enough, but sounded more calm than I thought they would've been said in crystal's games.

Wow, it looks great! I love how detailed the environments are - the fire, the particles, reflections, falling and floating objects... those lights are really beautiful and together with the sound effects, it all just works so well. The voice acting is also very nice. Good luck with the project!
