We’ve just released our latest little demo, built to show off our upcoming Alloy 2.0 update, used alongside some of our favorite assets from the Unity Asset Store. You can either check out the video above, or download it for yourself to try out!
(Windows and a DX11 GPU required)
For this demo we created a single high detail asset using a workflow that included Maya, 3dcoat, Handplane and Substance Designer. As we’ve been upgrading Alloy, a lot of attention has gone towards figuring out the best streamlined workflows for using physically-based rendering, especially for indie producers on a budget. We’ll be putting out some more videos soon that cover this in more detail, as well as the Unity-side of setting up image effects and other middleware to work in concert with Alloy.
If you’re looking for any of the assets mentioned in the video above, check out the links below. Again, huge thanks go out to the folks at Marmoset for being so cooperative in our venture to integrate systems. We continue to be impressed at how inviting so many are within the Unity ecosystem.
Alloy Physical Shader Framework (Update Coming Mid-Feb)
Well that was down to the line! At 10:49pm PST last night, we finished uploading our zany entry to the VR Jam hosted by Oculus Rift and Indiecade, Courageous Cannonball Commander! We’ll have a video up soon, and once submissions are re-enabled, the game itself will find a home on Oculus Share.
A couple life lessons were learned in the process:
On Friday, we were fortunate enough to receive our hot-off-the-presses Oculus Rift Dev Unit, and have been furiously working with it, and by that I mean we’ve been playing a ton of TF2 in VR mode. In between sessions of circle-strafing as scout, and the resultant bouts of motion sickness, we’ve patched (with duct tape and hope) the OVR Unity Package into our recent project: Museum of the Microstar.
And so we present to you, Museum of the Microstar – Oculus Rift Edition
