Remember when Ninja Theory announced Project: Mara a year ago? Well, the devs have finally given us an update of sorts on the upcoming title, which is set in a single location, and features a single character.
Rather than give details on the story or gameplay, Ninja Theory presents the aforementioned environment, which is eerily realistic and detailed, and the process in which they go about creating it. Which makes sense, since you’ll apparently be spending your entire game here.
“There’s this kind of a shift going on within Ninja Theory in the way we create art,” says Chief Creative Tameem Antoniades in the video, which makes comparisons to the real-world set used for the game’s environment, and the resultant CG replication. “Artists are not there to just create an object, they’re there to create systems that can create that object and infinite variations of that object.”
Really, it’s crazy how detailed the environment is, right down to the lint on the floors.
There’s no release date set as of yet for the title, but the lengths that the developers are going to create something this gorgeous is certainly going to be worth the wait. Meanwhile, Ninja Theory’s currently-in-development Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 will be for PC and the Xbox Series.
