Hi everyone! Tonight I’m sharing an update from the section where Leon approaches / leaves the clock tower.
This section was fun to work on because I was able to use some of the new photography that Albert traveled for last year. And it might sound strange, but the bricks you see in the comparison shots are my favorite bricks in the entire game. I hope to someday be able to see that wall in person. 🙂
Another interesting thing about this section is that this is one of the instances where the game uses a pre-rendered low-resolution video (for the rotation of the bridge). The reason for this is because the “cut-scene” happens when you’re inside the clock tower, and the original game couldn’t load this section to show the rotating bridge. So instead they made a video of it.
My hope is that this low-res video can be replaced with an HD-rendered version of the bridge rotation someday.
In the meantime, please enjoy these work-in-progress shots!
