Story

We had our first team meating, where we picked out 2 concepts, on which our Art Directors (Andreas and Esben) will work for a week sketching some designs and fleshing out the story.
We will be posting some wip of it during the week.

The other team menbers will estimate the time needed to produce assets for both concepts.

Based on those things during next weekend we will decide which story to work on.

Concepts:
- The Old Man and the Sea, a novella by Ernest Hemingway.

- One of the Odin stories, the chief god in Norse paganism.

Fernando, my friend thank you Updates are soon to come - our art directors are working on the story and initial concepts very hard, so be sure to visit us again

Fredrik, we haven't decided yet on the story, but half of the team members are leaning towards Odin (I am for the Old man and See though ). Soon we will post story outlines and see what other people say...

Anyways, Friday is the decision day...

Story outlines

And here our story outlines,
by Esben Toft Jacobsen

Vølvens Spådom - The Fall of Odin

Odin recieves his two ravens - Hugin and Munin. They whisper in his ear.

Odin is enraged

The giants (Jætterne) are coming

Odin picks up Gungnir - The spear that will always find its target

He hastes through the mighty gates of Valhalla to meet the Giants (prefareble on the thundering hooves of his 8-legged horse Sleipner)

And starts killing off giants one by one

There are loads of giants, but Odins seems to manage

The Giants have a big machine-weapon of some sort, and they are about to fire it, when they suddenly draw back

A big shadow darkens the ground where Odin stands with his smoking spear

A total where we see the huge Fenris wolf standing over Odin

Title: "Vølvens Spådom" (the less cool english translation will be something like "The Prophecy"

And then a picture of the Fimbul winter. The world has frosen to ice. One of Odins ravens is having its last death spasms in the snow




The Old Man and the Sea of Fog

The world has become a dark place

Poisonous fog covers the earth

The few survivors live on islands above the fog

Water is vital for our survival, but pure water only exists in the boilers of old machines

It has been 84 days since I last caught one

-----

The Islands in the fog are the roofs of scyscrapers, owergrown with twisted trees and scrap metal

The main character - the old man - is navigating a boat machine walking on very very long legs through the fog

The fish machine he is trying to catch could run on som kind of steam jet engine?

The rain that falls is poisonous, so if it rains, the old man covers himself with metal, and the rain acts like acid on the metal

Underneath in the fog lies the dead abandoned city
