Development Info - posted by Infinitron on Thu 27 October 2016, 20:29:33Tags: InXile Entertainment; Maxx Kaufman; Wasteland 3
With only a week left on the clock for the Wasteland 3 Fig campaign, inXile continue their tradition of seemingly scrambling to find something relevant to post in their updates. In today's update, inXile's oft-maligned art director Maxx Kaufman writes about their production process for the detailed character models the game will use in dialogue with important characters. You might be glad to hear that said dialogue sequences are indeed inspired by the "talking heads" from the original Fallout games. There's a video showing the making of Fish-Lips, the belligerent raider boss from the gameplay mockup video:
Yes, they ARE lovely, aren’t they? Take your pick. Well, not the ram. That one's mine. It gives me powers.
Hmm. Yes, the one with wings DOES suit you. No, no. I don’t need money. Just a promise. Wear my pin, and I’ll come to visit you one day, and ask a small favor. Nothing outrageous, I promise.
Just a little favor between friends.
Hmmmkay. It'll be nice if they have another video on the way featuring this guy. Read the full update if you're in the interested in the technical details of how they're creating these characters.
