The Dreading: Coming April 2006
The Dreading Preview
Imagine some of your strongest warriors in the village, that go out hunting. None return. What do you do? Do you pack up your belongings and leave? Do you stand up and fight? Or do you wait and see, see what brutally murdered these men. What do you do?
Deep in the woods of Valens, there lies a small town. Villagers here are devoted to living their lives. They are not heros, just ordinary citizens. But they will need more if they wish to survive. For in the woods that they live in, lies an unknown force. No one knows what they are. All that they know, is that it is coming for them.
There hunters are easily dragged off into the forest. Their strongest warriors brutally slain. The villagers quickly wiped out. They leave no one alive. Valens must do something. It cannot sit and watch its small outside towns be overrun. They soon decide to send out its best. The Arrian Legion. The strongest of all the troops of Valens. Led by General Morecei Arrian himself.
But the timing is bad. Attacks from the neighboring countries of Cassius and Florian cause the armies of Valens to be re-routed. But it will take time before they can reach the deep woods of west country.
However, what is to be done in the time it takes for the army to get to the outer territories? Someone has to take action NOW! There is no room to wait. If they wait, they die. But who will rise to the task? Who will take on the seemingly invincivible creatures of the woods?
One will rise to this fate. But who you will have to find out for yourself.
Stay Tuned to LZD Forums for the updates to the relase of, "The Dreading" The first of the campaigns scenarios!!
(Did it work fine?)
Yes, it had a definate beginning and end, no long waits or pauses. Very nice job here. Not much else to write here..
(Smoothness throughout cinematic)
Very nice! Your fade-ins worked quite nicely, however on the part with the guy who walked in the forest I think you should've shown that again with him just disappeared :P
New new new! Great stuff here! I love the way you came up with the idea, and put it into play. I don't think anyone has brought fear and suspense into AOM cinematics, so excellent job here! I like the mountains in the background too :D
Map Design: 3
Well it was way beyond any new scenario being submitted, good job here. Your town seemed a bit empty, but I guess thats how it goes with an evil death creature thinger in the woods. You spent good time on details, good job there. I love your screenshots you were excellent when taking those, great job! :)
Nice job! It had great credits, and how they were put into the cinematic was very movie-like. There were alot of tracks and not very many cuts, next time I would do more cuts and less tracks..thats how it is in real movies, so a 4 here.
I look forward to seeing the future scenarios and cinematics and especially the Dreading.
