• Hey, Guest!

    XenForo 2.2 is coming soon, it's bringing many new features such as a PWA app for OG etc. It also comes with the drawback of more costs to update themes/some addons. It'll also remove access to some older browsers which'll suck but these shouldn't be used as their security sucks.

    With the costs already looming we decided to improve OG's look with a new fancy theme that gives OG a more gamer feel. This has cost us only slightly more than it would have cost to renew the current theme and runs alot nicer.

    You can beta test it here: Linky. (Please note only dark is live, light will come once issues are ironed out.)

    If the current theme breaks on update we will end of life it, but we'll make something looking similar based on the default free theme so don't fret!

Short Horror Film "Astray"

Greetings,

I wanted to share a short film of mine with all of you here. It's an animated horror piece called "Astray." I completed it last year, and got it into more festivals around Canada and the US than I expected. Only made it publicly available very recently.

It's not "video game art" per say... but some of my inspiration definitely comes from survival horror titles. Resident Evil being the biggest (especially the RE1 remake on Gamecube, and RE0). Silent Hill and Siren have always been inspirational for me as well. I'm also posting it here, because I was a big follower of Assemblergames, and I have a lot of respect for the community that branched off into Obscure Gamers.

Short films are what I want to make, though, and I have many directors I look up to. I don't expect this to explode online, but I'd like to have it available to a few groups of people at the very least. It was the first thing I've been able to finish, but hopefully not the last!

Hope some of you enjoy it,

Kyle

That was pretty awesome! I liked the dark art style and the perspectives on a lot of the scenes were great! :cool:

^Appreciate it! The reference footage I filmed for that particular shot took longer to get right than I expected, haha. So I'm glad it worked out.

Unbelievable good looking. Yes the face / animation reminds of Siren, the camera angle is RE but perfectly chosen. But it has also a David Lynch and Phantasmagoria vibe. And maye a little bit Jan Švankmajer's Alice?
The film works incredibly well and independently. The greatest possible avoidance of music is a successful idea.
The atmosphere is better carried.
The footsteps remind me of a game by the SCP community.
I find the mouth and hands very creepy.
I am reminded of Little Nightmares also.
