The Oasis Expedition
The Oasis Expedition is a game about the beauty of photography.
We created a nature environment and an ecosystem with several (two!) creatures in it. And some plants for them to eat, of course. You're invited to take pictures. TAKE PICTURES.
(Go to the sand bit. It's the prettiest.)
We took the chance to experiment and get familiar with a couple of technologies and techniques. HDR rendering, fancy post processing, behavior trees for AI, navigation meshes, more organic modeling; it's all in there.
Because we used so many new things we ran into even more trouble than usually, so the game is completely unpl- somewhat unfinished. Enjoy what is there though!
