The Sapphire Hunt

Post by Jawi » 29 Sep 2016 16:26

Background story:
Lara has stumbled upon a piece of information about the mysterious sinking of the ship "Selphia" during a voyage in a Southern American lake area in the year 1937.
The ship disappeared in an unusual way - the wreck was never found. It was said that onboard the ship a sword with a sapphire-ornamented handle was exhibited.
It had been found just a few months before the tragedy, therefore neither its provenance nor its age was ever established, but it was an unusual weapon that wouldn't be used neither by the natives, nor the conquerors from across the ocean.
It immediately gave Lara a thought, that the sword may be connected to the mysterious ruins near to the ship's supposed resting place.
Is the sword a solution to the riddle of these remains? What kind of warrior had used it? Or maybe it is merely an introduction to a much bigger secret?

I don't want to give too much away, but as you may see below there are going to be jungle, caves, temples and of course the shipwreck :)

Concerning gameplay, the acrobatic aspect has been accented, inspired by the classic Tomb Raiders. But that's not the only candy in the jar :wink:

The custom is now being tested by much appreciated Dutchy, Gerty and mugs :) I hope to release it in October for the 20th anniversary of the series :wink:

Good lighting effect! Some scenes kinda too dark, though.

Thank You :)
Yeah, it's a matter of LCD screens nowadays - for example on my laptop it all looks very bright and on my PC screen (which has brightness reduced to minimum) it's okay. There will be a plenty of flares though ;)

I am so afraid of Sheevah that I dare not play levels that have it. Too pitty for me cause the trailer looks so great! :disappointed:
Still, the pushing block scene is really very dark. :-P

Thank you all for kind comments :) @scottchu, don't be afraid, they're not so hard to kill after all ;)
Yes, the game is quite dark (the levels were made using a bright LCD screen) but I put a lot of flares so that player wouldn't get lost ;)

The game is after the first run of tests and in a few days the beta tests will follow. Fixing bugs took me more time than I had expected, so please be patient :) Right now I see no obstacles for the game to be released in November, but things can get twisted sometimes, so no fixed release date will be given ;)

Stay tuned!
