This is a stage from Imagination Vent's Indie Assault created by artists Ruben Vaca, and Angeline Chia. The Sovereign was a collaboration project with Starblade Games' upcoming action/adventure platformer game Nefarious. The stage's visual style stays consistent with the elaborate art-style of Nefarious. It features 'soft' and 'hard' platforms for playability of the platform fighter style gameplay. The Sovereign also includes a stage hazard triggered by the interactive 'Punch' button. All 3D assets and materials in this stage were made with Autodesk Maya.
This is a six month project done at The Art Institute of California - San Diego by students underneath the mentorship of lead artists at Sony Online Entertainment. The project consists of three nodes/levels done in a sci-fi style that was consistent with SOE's fantasy-based MMO Free Realms. Built with Unreal Development Kit, December 2010 version.
