Brainstorming Podcast #16 - New parallax method
over 1 year ago – Sun, Aug 08, 2021 at 02:00:38 AM

Hey Dreamers! Adrian here.

Some of you may have seen Chris' clip where he showed off a new technique for parallax scrolling that he was testing out. We got such a great response that we decided to chat a bit about it, it's planned use and it's connection to animation history. We expected this to be a short one but ended up wringing a good 40 minutes out of the topic!

We end up exploring a bunch of interesting topics from old cartoons, classic games, and more! This is a really fun episode that was great to record. We hope you enjoy it!

A quick reference guide to some of the videos we mention during the podcast:

Until next time Dreamers!

Brainstorming Podcast 15 - Character Portraits
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jul 28, 2021 at 12:51:22 PM

Hey Dreamers! Adrian here.

On this week's podcast, we continue to chat about our cutscenes, this time focusing in on dialogue portraits! You know, those close up pictures of the characters you see in a lot of games to help indicate what character is speaking as well as what tone they're speaking in? Turns out there's a lot of nuance to those portraits, especially in recent years where they get limited animation and effects to help enhance them! But what's going to work best for Nightmare Fiends? Listen to us try and figure it out on this episode!

 Download/listen here! 

We also discuss character portraits origins in Japanese games, how those portraits have been influenced by Japanese manga, and whether or not that would translate properly with an early turn of the century comic like Little Nemo. Lots of interesting things discussed, so be sure to listen and as always, let us know what parts of the game your most interested in hearing about that we haven't covered in the comments or on the Discord!

Until next time Dreamers,

~ Adrian & Team Nemo
