Thread: March 2013 Challenge Entry - Water Problems

  1. #1

    Default March 2013 Challenge Entry - Water Problems

    This is the rough sketch for a watery dungeon puzzle. It's basically a flow puzzle with two parts - the main bit with the four big rotating valves, and a smaller one to activated the watery door mechanism.

    The overall goal is to get to the hidden vault (which alternatively could be a path further on - I don't know yet). It is sealed by mechanical door (opened from above in the cathedral) and a pressure door (sealed by all the water in the pool which itself presents an obstacle).

    There are a few associated hazards/traps with things too.

    On a side note, it's really hard coming up with a decent/fun puzzle for a dungeon that is different!

    I've got around to doing the outlines. Now just to colour it in.

    Looks really great so far. I'm simultaneously intrigued and disturbed by the room marked 'thing'...

    Things have slowed down on this because I've been getting pain in my wrist which is limiting how much I can do. I think I'll just start adding the labels and puzzle elements next.

    I really like the water, especially the fade on the west side. Looks really nice without drawing too much attention, letting the viewer focus on the main map area.
