Developing The New Biomes

You have been asking for more biomes in our worlds, and we couldn't agree more! We've had to get the game's performance, stability, and memory usage under control to make room for the art, along with a suite of tools to create vast and detailed areas. Both development threads have now been accomplished.

When looking at our world art one aspect we wanted to maintain was keeping our worlds hand-sculpted, as opposed to procedurally generated. The proprietary terrain and placement tools we created allow for articulated and detailed distribution of grass and foliage while allowing all the artistic flexibility required to properly design out specific areas and biomes within a single world location.

The end result when using these tools allowed us to create the biomes for Proteus 2 relatively quickly, and we look forward to applying this technology to the more lush worlds on our roadmap, such as Seraph and Gemini while bringing interesting possibilities to legacy favorites like Aziel and Zer.

In the meantime, we got a little carried away and took a bunch of screenshots! Apologies if this seems a little indulgent, but we couldn't help ourselves. :)
