First of all, I must say that this was a really nice, interesting and challenging project to work on from the beginning to the end, being the first game that I worked on. What I took and learned from doing VoltCity was very enriching and will definitely help me in future projects.

VoltCity is a touch based game about managing power, it was made for the Electricity Museum of Madeira (Casa da Luz) by myself the artist and designer, and by Kushal Ponnam the programmer of the game.

If you want to play the game you have to go to the Electricity Museum in Madeira, but for now I'll give you some visual insight of the game.

Hope all of you enjoy.


From the beginning of the project I knew that I wanted a very geometric 3D look for the visuals of the game and an interesting color pallete, which lead me to create what is displayed bellow.

All of that was possible with V-Ray, we used V-Ray for all the visuals of the game as we found that using V-Ray will gave us the desired look, being the final product a 2D game it looks like a 3D game. Aside from that, as I'm primarily a 3D Artist, I was able to do all the assets in 3D then render them to use as a sprite in the game.

Another must have in the game was a day/night cycle, with that came some trial and errors, but we were able to create a seamless loop along all the day/night cycle and have control of the time of each section of the day.

Here I'll display some GIF's to demonstrate the diverse animations in the game, from the day/night cycle to the sea animations, light animations and the animations on the various assets.

All the animations bellow are playing at 24fps, while in game it plays at 5fps. That's for showing purposes, while in game it maked more sense to get that kinda feel alongside the art choices that we made.

It’s one of the easiest laptop upgrade methods one can consider. Thanks for revealing your ideas. 먹튀사이트
