World premiere of the song!
...and I thought that Japanese TV commercial I posted in the upper right was strange! O_O Just wait until you see the full FRIDAY THE 13TH release at AdventureQuest Worlds this Friday!
Today at the Lab, we had voice auditions for the voice of the Evil Teddy Bear Deady. It was between Cysero, Warlic, Oz, Galanoth, and me. We did the voice recordings, and sent them, without labels (So he would not know who the voices were) to Voltaire and asked him to choose one. Last time Deady was voiced by Michael Sinterniklass -- best known as the voice of Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dean Venture from the Venture Bros. For this event, one of us needs to "stand in" for Deady's voice -- and frankly, we are all scared to death to be picked. Who wants to try to be a stand in for Leonardo!? Oh no... Voltaire just sent back an email with his pick. *gulps*
Writing code to "merge armor, skin, and items" together
Zhoom really has his hands full today. He is writing code to make the 3D game put the skin on the character, then merge the armor over the skin (with transparency), then merge any additional items (belts, gloves, boots, etc) on top of the armor. I would have thought there was something built in to do this type of thing automatically... I guess not. I looked at the code on his screen in horror as it is some of the most advanced image manipulation code I have ever seen. I wanted to post a full shot of the female in armor today, but based on your feedback we are re-doing her hair and making it more life-life (Good call!) Check back tomorrow and I should have a screenshot of the female in armor for you -- maybe we can get that oversized sword textured too!
