      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

    DAY 10. This team created such a cool prototype! Also thanks to Tucker we have Emotes! It's (basically) done! Couldn't ask for a better team or final product. You'll see more soon! Can't wait for people to try it out.

    OMG DAY 9 Our team made something very special today:

    Some damn good gifs today you guys. @Jeremy Mitchell is getting some really nice wet clay materials and VFX going on. Also featuring Jared's super nice Kiln model. And Physical animation is goofy as hell.

    Day 04! Jared got the final spirit model in with a rig. Also some terrain maps from Kristen, a quick light pass and some VFX from Jeremy.

    @Googolplexbyte Really cool idea!
  9. Concept Art

    New concept art for the Arena area.
  10. The Daily Screenshot Thread

    Oh man, DAY TWO We've got some fun updates: Jeremy N got a whitebox version of our arena map in! And some rocks we can start using to populate the environment, Which Kristen is texturing up. Jared has been working hard on a rig where we can move arms and leg positions and scale them. And Matt has been hard at work on Pot Tech. He can fill rooms with random shaped pots that have collision. This is important!
  11. The Daily Screenshot Thread

    Day One! Everyone has been hard at work testing out new clay tech, building test levels, organizing design thoughts and testing out Unreal physical animation setups! Here's Zach & Jared's Test Pot walking around the test room.
  12. Concept Art

    HI! Kiln development is kicking off shortly and I wanted to start a thread where we can post Concept Art. To start here is all the key art used in my pitch, most of which is in eye-ball destroying 4k resolution.

    @Talahar & @Reid_Harris_Cooper: sorry you're not into it, but thankfully the prototypes this year are extremely diverse! i know you'll get some good stuff. @TitaniumOnMars: awesome, thanks! There were some great weird-ass games from that gen. @Cheeseness: thanks Cheese!!!!!

    @tonber: yeah! That's a cool idea. There are all sorts of possible game modes that could be made after establishing solid vessel creation and combat. It all comes down to how much time there is to do it.
  15. Kiln (Derek Brand)

    @rheberling: I'm almost certain that the construction of the Vessels should happen during the match. Essentially this takes up the time that would normally be used as a respawn countdown. There will be a tradeoff between making the perfect one and getting one out quickly so you can get back out on the field and I think that will be a fun tension especially as part of a team! This also helps cut down on waiting for other players to finish their masterpiece before a match can start. @wot fanar: Yeah for sure! Buffs and powerups should be fun and I hope there is time to include them if it goes to the prototype stage! Thanks for the interest!
