Nico asked the GM producer a question regarding the screenshots:
It was told that the engine of the game mixes realtime with prerendered 3D. So Samantha here is realtime.. But is all of the environment prerendered (flat) or are parts of the environment realtime rendered as well, like for example trees moving outside in the wind, light that comes through a glass stained window and kind of "ripples"?
The backgrounds are all pre-rendered, but we have many realtime animations included (moving skybox, trees, light effects/strays, dust particles, etc etc) and we are using realtime lighting.
- In an interview published online by Igromania, Jane Jensen confirmed that we would also visit London in GM. There will be altogether about 50 characters in the game and among them about 20 important for the plot. There are 800 pages of script already and she is still working on dialogues. We can probably expect some references to the Gabriel Knight series in GM (quotations? hints? easter eggs?). Jane mysteriously says: "Keep your eyes wide open!"
