A really cool skybox I found on the website:
The outdoor environment is my level is a valley surrounded by some snowy mountains. The white boxes represent the palaces and the skywalk between the palaces.
I am still working to manually draw seams on the meshes to unwrap UVs.
I also started to make a mouse model that I will use in my level.
Some pictures I took:
A sketch I have for the gunblade:
Work progress in Max:
Yes, I am still trying to carve each brick on the wall but I actually found a better way to do that.
I made some boxes and added a noise modifier to them. Then I just click on each brick and change the “seed” option under the noise modifier. That way I can make a pretty realistic stone wall.
Thank you for bearing with me!
As the last level of my game, the map of the level looks like this:
In which the green arrow indicates the direction Max the Magnificient is escaping.
I haven’t quite got to build the obstacles since I am still thinking about which kind of obstacle is appropriate in the game. And the blue blocks roughly indicate the furniture in the queen’s room.
My game is going to focus on the catch-and-run between Max the Magnificient and the mouse spirits. The gameplay of the game is basically a parkour game like Subway Surfers and Temple Run. In the Royal Mice Parkour (working title), the player will play as Max the magnificent and try to escape from the gathering of spirits.
In my game, the story is gonna be dark and creepy. After Casbury summoned the army of the spirits, death spread throughout the palace and almost all the living things are turned into zombies, ghosts, and monsters except Max the Magnificient. He must find a way out of the palace before it’s too late.
There will be boss battles in which the player will stand against special and strong spirits and even the princess who’s infected by the spirits and turned into a ghost. The art style of the game will be dark and creepy in which the spirit army of the mice will be depicted as zombies, ghosts, and monsters.

- Gameplay highlights/hooks/features
The game is a traditional parkour game with boss battles which are not common in parkour games. Also, the art style of the game is terrifying and creepy. The mix of these elements will make the game interesting to play.
- Intended audience and how you will appeal to it
The intended audience is parkour game lovers and horror game lovers.
- Game style/player experience
The game is somehow hardcore since parkour games are usually not easy not mentioning boss battles. The player will need to spend some time on the game to win it. Besides, there are going to be jump scares in the game so the game is quite intense.
