I love the transparency that accompanies the development of many crowdsourced games. For an aspiring game developer such as myself, seeing updates such as Star Citizen’s Hornet WIP gives me all kinds of ideas and tidbits to incorporate into my own processes.
In the case of Roberts Space Industries’ most recent missive, it’s the opportunity to see the design work that goes behind the development of the beautiful space craft and character models that will populate an epic space opera. The quality and quantity of work that has to be done behind the scenes to deliver such cutting edge graphics are humbling. I can only imagine the mountain of programming that has to take place to make this magic come together.
A great deal of sweat and tears have to be shed to bring these creations to life!
