Announcements

Over Labor Day Weekend, our repository server gained sentience and walked away.

It's back and said it just went for a walkabout and didn't mean to cause any distress. What is interesting though, is it will neither confirm nor deny the existence of these "motorheads" we've heard about.

Thank you all for your concern, and batteries.

The motherboard manufacturer sent a replacement part and we have put the repository server back together. We are back up and running and will now continue our regularly scheduled programming. (please pardon the pun)

Yes I definitely like the artistic style shown in these pics. I can tell you that just from this small sample Michael has hit on several specific "costume suggestions" that have been made over the years for this game. I think his efforts will be much appreciated here. :)

He was called "Michael" at the bottom of the Update post so I'm assuming that was fine. I actually go by my middle name IRL as well. ;)

Now this is an update I can get behind. ART! COSTUMES! GOOFY THINGS SNUCK INTO COT!
Seriously, Devs...I want goofy things snuck in. and maybe a badge for finding a bunch of them! this would be really fun!
Goofy things like the devs as NPCs. Maybe hide DR Tyche in city hall as the guy who registers super groups.

How about a bunch of homeless people scattered about the city who look like all the devs and they scream out "Hail Beard" every once in a while!


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

I really love the design of some of that power armor. That's going to go great with several character concepts of mine.

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

Great work -- glad you are on

Great work -- glad you are on the team!

As for goofy stuff in the game, please MWM keep this to a minimum, as the old game did. I don't want CoT to turn into another CO or Thor:Ragnarok where it seems to be mocking the whole idea of superheroes.

Spurn all ye kindle.

Looks good! I love the little designs and features on the costumes like the pentagram on the pants and spiderweb on the shoulders. Hopefully we're able to see those details in the game and able to add them where we want.

Looking great! I for one would really like to see some in-game renders of these concepts. Just to see how it transfers from paper to game.

That concept art looks sweet! If we get a tenth of some of that coolness distilled down into Unreal Engine form we'll be cool indeed!

Exceptionally good art Witchikin! The more visuals I see--both concept and rendered--the more I am excited about how Titans is going to look.
