While browsing GameTrailers.com I came across a very interesting game called 3D Dot Game Heroes by From Software. It wasn’t the gameplay or the story that caught my eye but rather the fascinating graphic style. The entire three dimensional world is made up tiny different colored cubes similar to Legos.
It would appear that they are trying to replicate the classic 2D pixel style in a fully 3D world. What gives this game character is the use of focus blurring simulating a real camera and not just a graphics engine, in addition to shadows that look like they would be cast from the real Sun.
I have seen and played the Lego games, and yet 3D Dot Game Heroes’ graphic style blows my mind. I will have to keep my eye on it and see where it goes. You can see the game’s trailer here!
