Oh my word, this looks amazing. I love how you're putting thought into each and every design decision; it makes the world feel so much more real.

I like the way you think. Are you a fan of Michael Kirkbride at all? I notice similarities in the lore writing style.

I like this style a lot.

I don't know if the realism comes across -- not in the sense of levels of metalwork technology. But the *photorealism*, as apparently physical objects, is very solid. And I love the greyscale palette -- that's a nice contrast to most 3D game styles.

Thanks everyone!

Some more screenshots, but bare in mind the map shown has even more of a nonsense layout than earlier screenshots as I haven't begun constructing actual locations, just places to test/build assets and to form a style:

Still very dark but captivating. Glad to see more architectural assets.

Been chugging along with this, modelled a ton of architectural elements. Started using C4D for this, and it was a really good choice as the parametric tools make modelling 100x easier and more fluid (Both to make, and in visual style). In addition, I've set up a proper page with more info.

Got a couple of big announcements on their way, stay tuned!

New graphic design is the work of: http://cargocollective.com/threeWiseMen, by the way.

Latest graphic design stuff has come through, so I put together a couple of posters for the sake of it:

Here's a little game, guess the geographical location of each of these factions and win yourself a 1x1 pixel unique snowflake ingame, in the snow patch of your choice! Guessing the art used will net you a double sized snowflake.

Also, updated first post.
