Welcome to the Dark Forest


Welcome to the Dark Forest, an environment created by 4 students studying the Advanced Diploma of Professional Game Development – Specialising in Art.

Students began by developing a mud map to help create the basic positioning for the 3D assets within the environment. After finding references and creating concept images the assets were modelled in Maya, textured and then imported into the Unity 3D game engine.

The Dark Forest environment was created by Ashley Latimer, Jake Higgs, Matthew Peirce, Steve Quinn in 5 weeks.

To find out how you can develop your own game environments make sure you attend AIE’s upcoming Industry Experience Day
