The New Look of Steve’s Quest, Part 4: Some Superlative Screenshots

Well, unfortunately, we didn’t end up releasing the first episode of Steve’s Quest last month, because some of the visual effects needed to create the episode proved to be more involved than we expected — you know, stuntmen flying through breakaway glass, CGI dinosaurs and digital skin-grafting on the characters to create a younger look in the flashback scenes.

Okay, because technically we’re doing 2-D animation, we didn’t do any of those things.  However, we are doing some complex visual effects and artistic flourishes that I think you’ll find to be worth the wait.  We’re expecting the episode to go live in mid-February.

Here are some screenshots that will give you an idea of what I mean:

Gain, the hero of Steve’s cyberpunk novel, charges through Tron-style digital tunnels.

Gain does battle with the minions of futuristic crimelord Wotan.

Gain leaps off a building, like any self-respecting superhero should do at least once.

Gain streaks through the skies of Metro City, powered by his jetboots.

Steve is not a morning person.

    Chris,

    I loved the screenshots of Gain, but my favorite was the last one of Steve. Now, I can identify with not being a “morning person.”

    You’ll let us know when things go live? I’m excited and happy for you.

    Thanks Kourtney. Yes, I like how, despite the dark sci-fi images the artists use, they’ve been able to keep a bright, lighthearted tone, which I think is perfect for the show.
