Blood Moon Showcase & More:
Video Showcasing moonphases, bloodmoon, and coloured lighting:
Notice, how the light colour changes depending on time and moon brightness.
Also note, that during sunrise and sunset the landscape is immersed into an orange hue. Moreover moonlight is more bluish than the default daylight, and therefore the night conveys a colder, yet magical atmospheric feeling. Furthermore bloodmoon lets the world appear bloody red of course. Can you already sense the danger?
Now, light sources are always in daylight colour, but the farther away a surface is from those, the more it is illuminated by the colour of the natural ambient lighting.
All in all these effects create a specific wonderful atmospheric ambient feeling. I think it looks just awesome. Emagone now has its own atmospheric landscape.
German Translation Finished:
We have just finished translating Emagone into the German language.
Emagone kann nun größtenteils Deutsch.
Improved Skybox and Celestial Objects.
Fixed lots of issues with the skybox and celestial objects. Also added all the constellations of the zodiac to the nightly sky, and sent hidden messages to the stars in the void.
The roof blocks are made of two materials and come in a huge variety. There are seven different shingle types, four made of clay, two made of slate, and also one made of straw, which of coures is technically not a shingle. Every shingle type then also has a wooden variant for its base. So you have an enormose selection to choose from, when building roofs.
More Alive Then Ever!
Player characters are able to close their eyes and blink frequently in a random fashion. This just makes them appear more alive.
Also the players will get wet hair, when they are in water or exposed to rainy weather.

Emagone Main Menu Enigma
The main menu just looks awesome with that animation. It also has its own, little, hidden enigma. If you can find it, and also are able to master the mystery, it will be up to you, to share this knowlede with the world.
New entity "Elster" in progress
We played around with the thought to make the female Elsters look visually different from the males. We decided to paint the female Elster‘s color accents in violettish pink hues. So here we go, get a first view of the female bird’s texture.
Emagone definitely needs a weather system that matches the beauty of its terrain generator. The leaves of the plants swing back and forth in the wind, and the waters dance in wavy motion. Clouds let the sky change its appearence with different weather conditions, to make the game's landscape appears more vivid and interesting over time.
