Lba Remake

Little Big Adventure Remake
(2010-...)


From the moment I first played Little Big Adventure I became big fan of this game. I love it both part because they are just awesome I remember to this day that felling when I spend all day to finish it and joy that it gave. So around two years ago I decided to make it's remake (then there wasn't any information about official remake). First attempt weren't to pretty but I was proud of them anyway.


My goal in this project were never money and I never claimed that I have any rights to characters, gameplay, universe or anything like that. I really respect rights of original authors and owners of franchise that's why my remake from the beginning was planned as partial remake (fully playable first island). Some time after I began development show info about release LBA 1/2 on gog.com and information about making official remake.

So I wrote to Frédérick Raynal for approve of this remake in this partial form. In meantime of waiting for answer I stopped development, after some time came answer :


" Don't worry you can continue your work. "



As you can see I never plan to compete with official remake. Game will be released as freeware and I do it just for my fun.

Am I creating game alone ?
All programming, scripting, modeling, texturing , making  sounds and few other things I do myself. Right now I cooperate with music that will make soundtrack to game (you will hear his creation starting from next movie) and seven testers that help me with tracking bugs.

Why I don't gave access to game it will be freeware anyway ?
Because right now game is in prealpha stage. I develop game on my own technology so it's take time to add all needed features to finish game and it would be problematic for me to support bigger group of people (I develop game myself and have limited time that I prefer use on development).I plan after some time to do open beta where everybody will be able to test game.

What technology I use?
Game use my White Rabbit Engine that is developed on Windows (I have in plans ports to Linux and Mac). It is based on SDL, OpenGL, Bullet, Lua, Recast and OpenAL. In meantime of development I changed rendering method I started using forward rendering but after some time I switched on deferred shading.



What tools I use to create game ?
I use my engine editor to create maps, Blender for modeling, MyPaint for sketches, Gimp for textures and arts, Audacity for creating sounds.



Will I share editor with game ?
I think about it but I still didn't decided.
