Dim : Embergen Challenge

WIP #0 (Empty scene with couple assets):


Nice topic!

What came to mind first is my favorite movie of childhood “Starship Troopers” and this “reverse” bombarding bugs:
[Here was violent YouTube video from the movie Starship Troopers “Best of: STARSHIP TROOPERS (1 of 2)”]

Don’t want to stick with the movie’s world, but let’s see what I can come up with.

Doodled some thoughts with the scene vision.

1: Bugs from the movie constantly bombarding some huge and tall wall.

2: Dropship flies over the terrain that is bombarded by the bugs or even just by something not even showed in scene. Heavy rain, thunder, lightnings.

3: Forest fairies having a war with insects. As ammunition they are using magical spheres made by elves from Lapland Rosebay flowers.
Distanced from original idea vision, made it just to understand if I do want to go this far.

Will go with 2nd vision, it has some flexibility, as all the scene is dynamic. So the plan is to define / produce minimal required content to make the scene alive and then add more if there is any time left before deadline.

Started to mess around in UE4, never used it before for production of anything reliable, so it’s going to be beneficial challenge for me with this engine skills as a prize :wink:

Nothing done yet, just simple camera animation applied.

I’m going to use some Megascans assets to fill the terrain and my own asset done back in a days as a drop ship https://www.artstation.com/artwork/XB2EBn.
