A dev diary is long over due for this. sadly most of this could have been exhibited months ago. I'm more curious to know the skin and hair render pipeline for their characters. I know the hair is pretty old school but it looks solid. UE4 has had some interesting examples in the past.

these features though are not used enough in UE4 games. Brad's hair though in Dark Pictures -

not every day to you see games nail ethnic hair at such detail. I was pretty impressed back in the day with Sazh and josh from both FFXIII and RE5, but more so with Zeddemore from Ghost Busters (actor Ernie Hudson)

Dark Pictures sets a pretty high bar for UE4 projects.

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts I loved this game, you can play with different characters, each with their own abilities. You had a dash, that was basically like flying - Really cool mechanic. Squaresoft at its best. (4 Days ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Found the game I mentioned - never thought to look for it till now. The name is "Soukaigi": [url] Seeing some comments of people who looked for it for 10 years. Crazy! (4 Days ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts But got to a place where I couldn't progress further, because I didn't understand Japanese - before 2000, I wanna say. Really liked it and still remember it randomly sometimes. (4 Days ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts And then later their American versions. There was this Japanese game only released in Japan, I think it was from Squaresoft, the game was quite cool and I went very far in it. (4 Days ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts @nostradamus: Yes, PSX, N64 & Sega Saturn as well. Those days, I played a lot of imported games. I believe I played Final Fantasy 8 around 6 months before the US release. Tenchu 1 & 2 in Japanese. (4 Days ago)
