‘Tis the Season for pumpkin spice, scary costumes and brand new moody Halloween music from our Titan City electronic musician Tal Kilger! This new haunting melody is accompanied by a spooky visualization designed by MrArtstrong - check it out here:
We hope you enjoy this new track which will be featured in festively unnerving parts of Titan City, such as the haunted castle area in Victory Beach Boardwalk!
Interview Series Continued with Don "MrArtstrong” Armstrong:
We also thought we would take this moment to extend our interview series of City of Titans volunteer crew. Don “MrArtstrong” Armstrong (who created the visualization above) is one of Missing World’s Media’s most prolific contributors to the project. You likely have seen his videos where he shares 3D modeling work he is conducting for the game, such as his latest entry here.
CoT Interview with MrArtStrong:
CoT: What’s your job title with MWM? What departments do you work in?
I am currently Lead 3D Artist for the project. I started as Senior Graphic Design, moved into UI and then to my current role in 3D. Mostly I go where I am needed. :)
CoT: What are some of the features you have worked on for the game so far?
Over the past 5 plus years I have dipped my hat into quite a few areas of the project, I have designed a lot of the Logos for the game, all the Class icons, a fair bit of the Brand X stuff ,I helped design a bunch of the UI and some of its elements, A bunch of game props and HUGE amount of the Costumes and outfits/armor. I also did a lot of the patterns and cape designs. When I look back at all the work I have done for the game it really is mind blowing.
COT: What are you currently working on?
I am continuing to work on Costumes/Clothing like the Brain Bowl, NPC outfits, Hero One outfits and more recently I am working on my very first building for the game! I have a lot in the pipeline :)
CoT: You are doing something a little different right now from costumes - working on a building to add to the game environment. How is that going?
MrArtstrong:The building I am working on is going very well, I have the basic low poly version 70% done and I am looking forward to starting on the high poly version and adding all the details and textures. I am also working on more NPC clothing and costume pieces as well.
CoT: What made you join the team? Did you play City of Heroes?
I was an advent COX player back in the day, as well as a HUGE superhero fan in general (Comic book colourist for years). I joined five years ago for the internship hours for my final year of “Interactive media and production program”. I found the project while looking around the internet for co op or volunteer opportunities. After I got my hours, Cabbit would not let me leave, he chained me to my desk (JK) LOL! I love working for MWM!
CoT: Like everyone else on the project, you’re a volunteer. What has the volunteer experience been like for you? How’s that been affecting your life, your family? Have you found value from the experience?
Volunteering, like all things, has its ups and downs. For the most part I love it as I can put as much or as little time as I want everyday. I was in the beginning putting between 60-80 hrs a week into the project. I was enjoying myself immensely, but that many hours was interfering with my home life. Now I put around 10 hours a week into the project, which is not a lot but I do get stuff done. Since my time with MWM my skill set has expanded exponentially. I love what I do for the project and I look forward to seeing it go live very soon.
CoT: Is there anything specific in the work you have been doing that other CoT staff or players might not know about that you want to share?
YES! I am currently working on my very first building and it’s turning out pretty nice, it’s a high tech design with lots of influence coming from a lot of my favorite sci and superhero movies/shows. I am a huge geek; I love high tech Sci-Fi themed stuff as well so I just had to make a super high tech building so that’s what I am doing. I am very anxious to show it off once it’s a bit further along. STAY TUNED! Thanks to all our awesome supporters :)
