Blue Moon: The Lucium Project [Juanjo]

Post by Juanjo_LS on 30th March 2017, 21:13

Hi there!

Finally, I'm glad to announce my new side-project:




A bit of history:
Blue Moon: The Lucium Project is a project of "short" adventure/exploration game set in the world of the Black Cube series (www.theblackcube.fr). It was born from the friendship of two Icehouse Members, Simon Mesnard and Juanjo Barceló. We had the idea before the Black Cube Jam 2016, but it could only become a reality several months later. I'm a skilled user of the Unity game engine with some experience in the indie scene as a game developer (I'm the founder of Luminy Studios) and I have worked on various projects on my own. I have suggested this cooperative project to Simon, who eagerly accepted to write a scenario.

The game:
Blue Moon: The Lucium Project is a short first person adventure game. It is being developed with the Unity engine, in full 3D.

Story:
In 2057, a Terran astronaut came back from a mission on an alien spaceship. He could never prove that his story was true, but he had brought back a fragment from a Black Cube never seen before, and emitting strange radiations. The Terran space center (CSE) classified this discovery as top secret. After this event, several people were gathered by a government agency, and placed on a ship bound for Terra's neighboring planet, Mapk, and more specifically for its blue moon: Ytria. They were all working for the Lucium laboratory, and their researches were leaded by your sister, a brilliant scientist. A lot of money was invested in this project. However one year later, you have lost contact with her. It would seem that she and the others have never existed, so you decide to conduct your own investigation...

Main features:
- Explore Ytria in full 3D and detailed graphics made with Unity.
- Investigate about the researches of your sister, and discover the truth by gathering her diary.
- English voice acting for a better immersion.
- An original soundtrack by Python Blue.
- Discover the secrets of creation of the Blue Matter, a major evolution in the Terran technology.

The team:
The whole part of the development is being made by me - Juanjo - (including graphics and programming) but this project would have not been possible without the collaboration of several other people:
- Author Simon Mesnard: he has written and supervised the project for a matter of consistency with the rest of the Black Cube series.
- Music composer Python Blue: he is the person behind the wonderful sci-fi OST,
- Ilustrator John Carvajal and his girlfriend Britney: thanks to them we have an incredible voice acting in English (I am Spanish…)

In addition, The Icehouse collective (where I am a Member) supports me in many different ways.

Announcement teaser (thanks to Simon):
PLEASE NOTE:
All content, in both the video and screenshots, are a work in progress. They do not represent the final quality of the game.

It's a beautiful project, I can tell you! The story should be intriguing enough, and bring some details to the world of the Black Cube and the Terran technologies....

Thanks Simon, I'm very excited with this project because it's my first solo development for a looong time and contains elements that I like a lot: full 3D, exploration, adventure, sci-fi and mystery!

400 backgrounds cyclops
In ASA I had almost 1000 (or was it in Catyph?), but it was MUCH easier than you, because I mainly changed the camera view in my scenes. Here from what I can tell, you have a lot of work for every single picture. It's incredible Simona. I can't wait too to try your game.

Hahaha, thanks Simona!

And yes, my first steps as a game developer was with Adventure Maker... really a great software but as you say was a shame that its development stopped. This was one of the reasons for my transition to Unity!
