Skara - The Blade Remains


Art pre-production. Cêlea concept art

In the southern lands of Skara, the people of Cêlea has established its dominance over the whole coast territory. Breed of sailors, the warriors of Cêlea wear bronze armors and big shields to repel enemy attacks, while menace their rivals from distance with long spears.

Celea troops are organized and effective, and approach the enemy in closed regiments, protecting every brother in arms with their shields. They are lethal in the middle distance with their long spears, but also with the bows, which they use with accuracy to decimate the enemies before direct confrontation.

Our concept artist Maki Planas created this amazing illustration of a Celea´s fighter, wearing a light bronze armor and the distinctive spear of the Enlora realm.

¡Hi there!

How’s it going guys? Well, I know it’s been a long time since I wrote my last post, but I’ve had to cope with some issues here at Skara headquarter which have kept me quite busy.

Yeah, I’m the Game Designer, and that sounds pretty cool. At least, so it sounds for me. The whole day talking and arguing about such questions as “How fast will the characters run?”, “Where do we put this stone?” or “Which character will be the strongest one?”. But before we came to that, there were a few thing that had to be done, and I was the one who had to do it. As long as we’re trying to make of this blog something useful for all of you dealing with your first game development, I’ll try to refer how to do it, and what you will need in order to have everything ready to start developing. So, there we go, first of all… Project management!

Art pre-production. Tamvaasa concept art.

Continuing the process of concept art for our game, it’s time to show you another of the races that inhabit the world of Skara. This time we introduce a warrior of the Tamvaasa lineage.

Tamvaasa territory extends over much of the north of Skara, and its inhabitants are habituated to extreme cold, wind and snow. For this reason, the warriors of Tamvaasa wear thick animal skins and fur, and carry big axes to break the iced surface of the Jaarvi Lakes and fish in there. And of course attack their enemies.

Stay tunned for the next updates of the incoming races of Skara!
