Finally, I comment on the first teaser!
I told you already that I am totaly impressed from the arrangement of the picture.
The individual giant underwater structures blending together in a perfect way. My favorite is the Kashmir Tower. You can feel the vibe there is a party going on if you take a close look :D
Both structures on the right side of the Kashmir Tower looking great as well.

But if you take a clooser look to the whole picture you realize that all buildings are very creative structures and that it´s the combination of thoose different unique buildings, all thoose great custom made signs and billboards, the small details (fishes and whales) and the layout of the city that draggs you inside the scene in the end. The depth of the picture is just brilliant!
Lighting and coloring are fantastic too and the marvellous editing like it is all under water completing the scene...
It seems like if the peeps of Rapture running around down there.  :o

Frank Hirshman, the star architect of rapture and close friend of Andrew Ryan, rose and walked slowly and elegantly out of his bedroom alongside the gallery of the unsparing, some would say luxurious appartement. Its highlight marked the big panorama-window which gave a perfect view to the throning city at the bottom of the sea. He descended the stairs and quickly left the accomodation. He disliked coming late and nevertheless had to find Louise who already was up on her way to the midnight-ball in the Kashmir-Restaurant.

The unfortunate events of the night lead Hirshman into the glorious station "Monsenor" of the atlantic express where he hoped to get an opportunity to escape the panicking masses of people and reach a bathysphere-hub.

No! It only took 3,5 months! Nevertheless we have good news: 3 minutes of the final video are ready and  most of the scenes are quite ready to record. The end of the year is still the goal for the final product. It's the same like with every other bigger project: you have 100 little things to do in every scene but we only want to present completed and well rounded pictures - so we have more in store than we show. After the video is finished, we will give you some Behind-The-Scenes material. If it's released we also will upload it to the workshop if there is any interest (warning: there will be multiple maps).

We hope you still follow the project. We are confident in the first few minutes and are looking forward for feedback.

Finally I found time to write on this marvellous project again.
I know from behind the scenes how much work and passion you all put in to this project and it´s visible in every picture you have posted until now.
The interiors with all thoose custom created things out of the in game shapes shows your endless creativity and skills when it come to create. The lighting design and harmonic color schemes blending togehter in a perfect way and spreading out atmosphere to the maximum. There is so much to explore if you take a longer look on every pictures like the out-standing art designs on the walls. I think they are from real artists and were used in the original game. Brilliant!
The last update shows again like the first how big you think in scale and design. The train station is a feast for the eyes!
I am really exciting when the final video will be released. I am sure it will be a cinematographic masterpiece!

I can´t wait when we meet and watch it together (Hopefully f****n omikron don´t impede the event)
The last picture before the journey starts look absolutley fantastic. Totaly intense antmosphere and the wonderful designed submersible capsule underlines the feeling that we are ready to explore the world of Rapture!
This will be a great experience!

Oh my! What a wonderful and eerie experience! I don't know anything about BioShock so I couldn't follow the story all that well. So I just went along for the ride and experienced it as it happened. At the beginning we were in Art Deco heaven! The amazing décor of the posh hotel/movie palace-like interiors. Then things get considerably darker, figuratively and literally.

Way too many things to list but, a couple of images that caught my eye were the starfish stuck to the glass window. And the Mona Lisa with the mustache. I have no idea why, but those things stuck in my memory.

Superb audio and sound effects! I have no idea how you managed to do some of the things we saw; video editing I suppose. I noticed that RCT3 was listed as one of the sources in the end titles. In what way was it used? Maybe the fish swimming around?

Excellent video! Excellent creation!

I just watched the video again and realized that I didn´t comment to this masterpiece so far.
We have talked a lot about this project during the makening and even met up togehter for the watchparty event. I just told you how much I am impressed of this mind-blowing piece of art. In my eyes it´s the best creation from you guys so far including your individual projects and your collaborations. Even more, it´s one of the best made-for-video-presentation-only project in Planet Coaster or rather theme park simulations.
To name everything that blew me away is way to much to write down and like I said I gave you a detailed feedback as we watched it together.
For me the most out-standing scene that overwhelmed me again and again when I watch it is the part in the theatre. But the big hall with the protesting people is wonderful as well. Don´t forget the broken Big Daddy scene, or the part when Big Daddy hunts you down through the corridors. This part is beside all other brilliant work of editing and story telling an intense special effects illusion in perfection.
At the end when everything is shutting down the atmosphere is so dragging and extraordinary. It´s fantastic!
The final scene where you entered the room with the diving bell is a dignified final for the whole journey. But all I mentioned now are only a few parts alongside countless other amazing scenes.
This is not less than a MASTERPIECE! You can be proud!
