The high-end level of technology and art and high compatibility have become the goal of the game production team.While some companies can launch a mobile game in a matter of months, Miha’s Original God took three years to develop and cost more than $100 million.Based on the digital technology of high immersion and strong interaction, The Original God supports the deep projection of player personality into the game narrative, encourages frequent discussions and cooperation among players, and even encourages players to move between online and offline in a more free manner.According to the original God production team, Yunjin completed 3D production as early as 2018, followed by continuous technical iterations and careful polishing.”The early art design didn’t take into account the wide Angle distortion of the in-game camera.”To make the production more intuitive and accurate, the team worked with the tool group to develop a tool that synchronizes graphics with the engine in real time, the designers explained. “With this new technology, we can see the final look of the real game environment as we modify the model.”Technical optimizations dramatically reduce the cost of communication and modification, making subsequent design and production processes more efficient and accurate.Every tiny link in the original God character creation chain is permeated with the application of new technology and the ingenuity of designers.In order to show a richer rendering effect, Yunjin has been successively “enhanced” its own dynamic AO, scene dynamic projection, scene light source, fog effect effect and other effects, so as to make the color and shadow more harmonious and unified.The technical team also developed a “dynamic face shadow map” to make the light and shadow change effect on the face more natural and stable.The body part of the character is changed to “multi-layer shadow color”, which makes the art effect of hand-drawn processing in the original painting more bright and beautiful.With the integration of digital technology and aesthetic innovation, The Original God brings three-dimensional, dynamic and aesthetic characters into the hearts of global players, becoming “messengers” to spread the beauty of Chinese culture.”We believe that quality content itself has the power to bridge gaps and differences.”Liu Wei, president of Mihayou, believes the Original God is showing the charm of traditional culture to global users in a fresh way.”We hope to bring high-quality Chinese works to global players in various forms, including games, music, comics and accessories.”Author: Xuan Jing Editor: Fan Jing
