In a new developer diary that goes behind the scenes of Blackbird Interactive and Gearbox's prequel to Homeworld. We get a good look at how the game looks and feels, how it developed from a spiritual successor from ex-Homeworld and Company of Heroes developers into an official prequel, and what makes the desert setting of Kharak so alluring for the RTS genre. There's a lot to take in, and this is a fantastic way to learn more about the game before its January 20 release.
The cinematic sequences in particular look stunning in their blend of art, animation, and live-action. We also get a good look at the maps and environments, where giant sand dunes and other structures play into the combat mechanics.
