"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of the future: An Inquiry into the limits of the possible
The man and the machine
As we wrote previously, we had already the final concept. It may not be very detailed, but it is enough to start with the 3d modeling.
In this simple concept, we can see how the character owns a pair of fundamental mechanical elements: the cannon backpack and the robot arm. As we already explained during the Rune Carver modeling process, this elements were modeled separated from the character, so we could replace them later during the game and allow you to customize your Archmage with unlockable skins.
