Subliminal Realms: Call of Atis

In february 2017 Big Fish Games released «Subliminal Realms: Call of Atis Collector’s Edition» made by Boolat Games (ukranian studio located in Kiev and Poltava). In our pipeline we used Blender for V-Ray as a main tool for animation and rendering 3D characters and Blenrig as a rigging system. Majority of the smoke scenes were done with Blender except some shots that 3ds max artist made with FumeFX and for the cloths simulations we had to use Marvelous Designer.
Keeping an eye on the blender philosophy we decided to share all the characters to the community.

Harold

  

Role: Good wizard. Ralden’s brother. Ally of the main character.
Physical Description: A 60-year-old strongly built man of a medium height. The time inside of the artifact is not moving, that’s why Harold is not getting older. 1.75m height

Backstory: He created the artifact together with his brother Ralden but he was deceived by him. His magic powers are running out because he didn’t maintain his power with human’s vital force.
At this moment smaller part of artifact magic power belongs to him. As far as his brother is alive Harold can’t visit Ralden’s worlds in the flesh that’s why he sends Samantha to collect missing parts of a key to the tower and the staff. He has to communicate with Samantha by the use of special altars. The altars were created by Harold to communicate with Ralden but later they were destroyed by his evil brother when they turned out to be enemies.

Minion

 

It was a great pleasure to animate these characters in Blender and finally to see them in the game. We tried to do the motion like in real life and we had to capture video references by playing roles in the meeting room.
