Re: Riven Actors

There was a ton of animation in the last demo, and honestly, animating levers and doors and so on is nothing next to animating people. Thats the point, even doing all the other animations except the people will be enough work for the actual dev team. I dont know how many years passed since the begi...

Re: Riven Actors

One word: Gollum. Or even Yoda. That's what it will take. Do they have the know-how to do that? I don't know. They do though have ridiculous amounts of being particular.... like for individual sticks and book covers... 8-) Look you're right, the acting in Mass Effect and so on is wooden and terribl...

Re: Riven Actors

I think as long as they do a good job of the digital actors and carefully mimic each facial expression it should be okay. especially if they did have the original files as reference.

Re: Playable 233?

Maybe you could release a demo packsge, which includes both, Prison island, and age 233.

Re: Riven Actors

That would be way too much for the budget i guess. I would try to extract the original Video Files from the Riven CD, somehow scale it up and put some filter over it, so it doesnt look pixelated. Another option coule be, to create 3D Models of the charackters, animate them, and record the voices, or...

Re: Final game title?

Id suggest to just keep the current name

"THE
STARRY EXPANSE
PROJECT"

And put the Riven dagger in the logo.

It fits to the new look and feel.

EverBody who knows Riven will notice it is actually the Remake, or atleast when they read the description.

Re: music?

If youre not allowed to use the original files because of licensing

Id suggest to include an option to just import the original soundtrack from cd or itunes into the game

Re: Real Riven, real characters?

I think cg characters is a good solution when youre running realtime graphics.

Maybe you could use the original sound files from atrus gehn katherine etc . ?
