Category: The Dead Astronaut’s House

A short game, about a dead astronaut, his house, and his past.

Some TDAH posters, for art’s sake

poster23Things are going slow in the space, at least in Dimitri´s one. We are focusing our great effort on finishing and polishing Aldebaraan, wich BTW, is getting a name change, like the ex 80 Boxes, now Asses and Boxes.

But dont worry, The Dead Astronaut´s House is not forsaken! To proof that, here is some new poster artwork.

This one is for the Argentine space program, Argentellar.

And for art sake, again, take some poster compilation.

The Dead Astronaut’s Background

Hello there space travelers!

While my VGA is melted down (fact that dont let me work in Unreal Engine 4, so i cant work with TDAH),  i took this time to polish the background story of the main character, the historical context and the mythological context, specially this last one.

The time line of the mythological context is so large that goes right to the beginning of the universe and beyond, to the previous universes.

I dont want to spoil anything, i just list some mayor events:

  • The Blind Archeologist destroys the previous universe and create this one using The Octogon
  • The rise and fall of The Ancients
  • the creation of The Three Elder Gods
  • the creation of The Eights
  • Creation of Thoi Sean, his star Aldebaraan and his duty to the mankind.
  • The trial of Dimitri and The Dead Astronaut’s House.

 

Sounds good right? at least to me 😀

One good thing of getting this background cooked is the fact that i was able to abord the elements of the game and the art way more accurate to the story. Some reflect of this is the progress of the main poster’s art

This is a (almost) final version of The Dead Astronaut’s house:

As you can see it still have a vintage movie style. This one in particular inspired in 2001: A Space Odyssey 

The drawing of the astronauts is something to polish, but the poster itself will be like this. You can see the aesthetic of the 60’s, you can see Aldebaraan, a star with mayor relevance in the story, you can also see Dimitri and the Octagon.

And now some other old posters that i didn’t show you:

Some of this may, or may not be used ingame.

Well, that’s all for today. Hope to get a new vga soon and finish the game 😀

In the search for some vintage looking spaceman.

The Dead Astronaut’s House project is advancing good and steady. Soon, I will be showing a new video. In the meanwhile, here are some concepts for the game’s poster.

The story is set in the late 60’s… well, sort of. In fact, the game is set thousands of years in the future, but I’m not talking about that right now. I hope you like the posters!

Revealing: Dead Astronaut’s House

While 80 Boxes is in the oven, cooking itself up, and My Tower My Home is finished, I’m already working in the next project: The Dead Astronaut’s House.

It will be a minigame, more like an interactive story, in FPS format.

So, whats this “game” about? I will only tell you the core of the story: There is a dead astronaut right in the lawn of the house, the grave it’s already dug up, there is a shovel, and the house is over an asteroid in the deep space. Who is that astronaut? why is he dead? who dug the grave? ..why is this house here? WHY I’M HERE??

 

Its a short game, it will take between 5 to 15 minutes, depend on how much you’d like to dig on the story written on that walls.

It’s the first of many episodes, all are planned to be shot like this. And best of all, it will be free, like our spirit.

The game is under development with the great and powerfull Unreal Engine 4.11, so you can expect some good looking space corpses.

 

ETA: July 1st (May and will vary)

 

Here is the first tech test
