Defines it as a very concise project in which they try to capture reality in an almost obsessive way. The game is centered on a real place, an apartment, which the studio tries to recreate perfectly.
Realism taken to the highest level
The first step was to take samples of textures and colors of all the materials that are in the place. For this, they used a homemade scanner to take pictures in various lighting conditions. Thanks to these exhaustive samples, they succeeded in creating 3D models that after many months of work seem extremely realistic.
The next step was to accurately recreate the measurements of the apartment in which it takes place Mara Project. Antoniades He jokes that it’s not that easy to use a tape measure and start measuring walls. For this, they used professional scanners thanks to the company Clear angle which provided almost perfect results.
