Mighty No. 9: Unreal Engine Initial Evaluation Test (PLACEHOLDER ASSETS) - From: http://MightyNo9.com ! A super-short, super-rough engine test Inti Creates made in just seven days to see if Unreal would be viable for Mighty No. 9. To be 100% clear (caps lock on!): THE GAME WILL NOT NECESSARILY LOOK LIKE THIS VIDEO, MOVE LIKE THIS VIDEO, OR ACT LIKE THIS VIDEO — THIS IS A COMPLETELY ROUGH TEST ONLY, MADE IN LITERALLY ONE WEEK, USING ALL PLACEHOLDER ASSETS AND ANIMATION just to test how parts of the engine work. With no shaders, filters, or even models and key art in place yet, normally we would never show anything like this since it’s not representative of the final game at all, but in the spirit of this Kickstarter in showing how the game is made, even from the very earliest steps, we thought it would still be pretty cool to see a glimpse of Beck moving around in the engine (even if it is a placeholder Beck, moving through a placeholder level with placeholder enemies and animations!).

NeoLucida (Long Edit) - (Note, this is not the Kickstarter video, which is about 1 minute shorter.) We have designed the NeoLucida: the first portable camera lucida to be manufactured in nearly a century — and the lowest-cost commercial camera lucida ever designed. We want to make this remarkable device widely available to students, artists, architects, and anyone who loves to draw from life. But to be clear: our NeoLucida is not (just) a product, but a provocation. In manufacturing a camera lucida for the 21st century, our primary aim is to stimulate interest in media archaeology—the tightly interconnected history of visual culture and imaging technologies.
