Company:Neverdie Studios Creative Director: Jon Jacobs
I was the technical and art lead at Neverdie Studios supervising a mid-sized team of world builders, modelers, character artists, and animators. Primary asset development was done in 3DS Max with procedural tools and assets created in Houdini. Game engine work was done in a proprietary version of Crytek’s Sandbox 2.0. I oversaw the development and launch of two online worlds under the Entropia Universe, Rocktropia and Next Island. A third world, Planet Micheal, based on Michael Jackson was conceptualized but never completed.
Due to the nature of the MMO, property could be purchased and players could buy houses or apartments. This was especially inetresting.
