I was working on the cinematic of the upcoming PLATOON strategy game publishing by MonteCristo Games and MGM.

and few shots from the cinematic, animated, lit, and rendered by my collegaue Balazs Kalazdi

I`m sorry for the long post, but we are proud, because we two made this animation (1 minute long) from the scratch within two month.

ohm, i don't see any pictures...
probably something wrong with your webspace?

Hello, I`ve edited the original post. Shame on ISP of Hungary. Hope you`ll see the images

Can't see more than 1-2 images but it looks sweet to me :)
Is it by any chance based on the old Platoon game for Amiga?

Hehe, I`ve edited it again...Holy shit. Please comment it whatever you think, ladies and gentlemen.

As far as I know, it is not based on the AMIGA game, it`s a new concept, etc.

I don`t know more, because after this cinematic Digital Reality cancelled the contract with the renderteam. :-(

Cool stuff. As far as the 'Are cinematics needed for games' question, it's not really a yes or no questions. If the cinematics are done well and they add something unique, or serve a specific purpose that can't be done in game, then yes, they make a great addition. If they detract from gameplay, are poorly done, or serve no purpose (i.e. advancinc the story, charater building, ect) then they should not be included.

Thanks guys...I`m afraid I post always at the bad time, because there are very few comments...

You'ld probably get a lot more comments if you embedded one or two of the images in the post instead of linking them. I disregaurd most links cause 90% of the time they either don't work or are to slow. Just my take on it.

Yeah Lost patrol is what I'm talking about, damn cool game if I remember correctly.. but then on the other hand I also like My little ponys when i was younger
