One Location, Two Screenshots

During their travels, the Rosenheart Sisters will visit locations that will change with time. Such is the Black Forest, where a wooded glade is stormy for one part of the game, and sunlit for the next. For this, we have to create two sets of maps, one for each type of weather. That way the […]
