Get ready to blast off into the world of Otherside, the first real utility-based metaverse! This amazing virtual universe is brought to life through Unreal Engine, a game-changer in the world of NFTs.
Voyagers, in December you saw the first look at an Otherdeed in-game environment, captured in Unreal Engine. Your response has been overwhelmingly positive, so the creatives behind Otherside are following up here with a behind-the-scenes look at the design process for Otherside environments.
The team at Otherside knows that Voyagers see the world as vast, dynamic, and otherworldly. Each Otherdeed is a haven, where the owner can roam and build to their imagination. The design system ensures that all Otherdeeds of the same tier are relatively equal in size and layout, with differences appearing in the form of resources, sediments, and artifacts.
The Bone environment, for example, was created with a concept of islands formed from the remains of ancient giants that once roamed Otherside. This concept allowed the team to step outside the box and unlock their creativity, resulting in a key frame that sets the tone for the entire world.
The process of bringing Otherside to life involved fine-tuning, shading, and lighting directly in Unreal. And that’s just the beginning! This metaverse contains 28 more environments as unique as Bone, each with its own story to tell. Keep an eye out for more concepts, gameplay, and content, including a sneak peek at the Jungle environment!
Get ready to explore this strange and wonderful world of Otherside, where the possibilities are truly endless.
