There was a need to carefully work out the texture following the biography of the character – it has good maintenance but undergoes certain wear and tear on the lower part due to the constant advancing off-road. Two color variants of the droid were created – white, soldier, and black, commander.
Boggs Henchman is a human character. He is an infantryman, armed with a percussive cannon and wearing a distinctive orange and green suit. Two 3D artists were responsible for this character, who carefully worked out the details of his figure and costume in accordance with the concept provided by the client. They created three textures for the character – orange, green, and orange-green.
The creation of this character was the essence of the test assignment performed by the lead 3D character artist. After its successful completion, the Kevuru Games 3D team began working on the Star Wars project. This is a Guavian security soldier in his signature red suit, one of the cybernetically augmented people recruited as security forces by criminals from the Guavian Death Gang, which operated about thirty years after the Battle of Endor.
Partnering with Lucasfilm was not only a great challenge to hone our 3D character skills and contribute to world-class projects, but also an incredibly enjoyable communication experience.
After a month of intensive work, our team managed to create authentic models that completely satisfied the client. The models were perfectly optimized for maximum performance in virtual reality, which requires rendering from 90 frames per second for each eye. Each character and detail of their appearance was created in accordance with the specifics of their biography and role in the game.
Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge was released on November 19, 2020, and received a warm welcome. Players and critics alike have given the same positive feedback to the diverse and dynamic game world, great immersion, beautifully written dialogue, and gorgeous, well-crafted graphics that unleash the full potential of Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2. Noting a fairly clear hint of a sequel and a high likelihood of future DLCs, players expressed a strong desire to continue their in-game journey, complaining that the end credits appeared too early.
