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.

    MrWhite Imagine scrambling to reload the gun, dropping the ammo on the ground, and picking up a brick instead and bashing a combine troop with it, saving your bacon. (8 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Melmoth: Well, then, if that gameplay is indicative of what its like overall, and if the AI can react to you touching things, thus making noise or becoming visible, then its going to be revolutionary (8 Hours ago)

    Melmoth @MrWhite: ..and ofc it's the perfect opportunity for us to build Dog :) (8 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @MrWhite: they say it's a full length game like HL2 of about 13-15 hours long. And making it VR only they can take proper advantage of having hands. Hope there's many nice gameplay innovations . (8 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite The only thing I'm sort of surprised about is the lack of full body presence. Boneworks has it, and it looks like it's sharing the same kind of mechanics engine too. (9 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Melmoth: Looks amazing. HL2 is still the best single player FPS in existence. Experiencing that world in VR will be incredible. (9 Hours ago)
