KOTH! – A new game

Im working on a new game, called KOTH, based on a popular but slightly violent childrens playground game.
King of the Hill, or Castle (as its more often known in the UK).

Its a multiplayer game, where you score points, the longer you stay at the top of the Hills.

Hill one is finished, and I am now building the scoring system, that needs to be able to send data to all other players, but I have multi player working nice and flawlessly.
And I’m slowly, very slowly building the character, currently Im running the famous Unity Viking.
Heres some screen shots from Hill #1

There will be nine “hills” in total, and the highest scoring player gets to wear a crown. Its would be nice if the “All time” best score could be displayed dynamically on a website, I think I need help with that though.

Later additions, will be in-game enemies (NPC´s) so players must help each other first before turning on each other, and some hidden extras.
Each “hill will be totally different, visually and atmospherically, some are interiors, some exteriors, some day some night. FOr me, creating the atmosphere, with sound, smoke, light and colour, is the most important part of the job. Game play, is just that, as in the kids game… nothing more.
This is Art you know?

Projection Mapping the Oslo Opera

A very poor video of my small effort at Projection Mapping the Opera in Oslo.
It was the culmination of a course by JOANIE LEMERCIER of Anti VJ.
It was -11 degrees on the top of the Opera at Midnight.

The course was very inspiring and it was very nice to meet so many talented and creative people. Hopefully some of them took better video and pictures than me, so I hope I can post some more later. Im terrible with names, but Ill just wanted to shout out to: The guy with the 3D Norwegian knitting Pattern, the guy with the Kinect, the guy wit the distorted and cut-up female face film, and the guy with the Black & White flash movie.

The course taught me that Cinema 4D is worth looking into, and one HUGE fact.. that Flash files can now be imported into After Effects… never knew that… obvious, it being all CS now.. but.. just didnt know… Very VERY usefull!
My raw film was this…

The first half was trying to work with the elements from the architectural feature we were working with, and the second half was just a messy grungy collage, I just wanted to grunge up the Opera building a bit, as its pretty much the symbol of the Oslo Elite. Its pretty impressive I must say, as in big…but anything BIG is impressive right?
Really.. its a hideous eyesore isnt it.. come on.. really!
