Natural Selection 2 Teaser

May 2009 // Natural Selection 2

During my time contracting with the Unknown Worlds team on Natural Selection 2, I helped build the section of level that featured in the game's teaser trailer released in May of 2009. My responsibility on the level was building the scene in Hammer (the fancy Spark editor was not yet ready for prime-time at this early stage) and setting up some of the camera work and scripting in the fledgling cinematic editor. The scene was based off a concept/storyboard by artist Cory Strader.

Some of the touches I added include the Skulk darting under the floor grating to the left near the start of the cinematic, and hand keyframing the wobbling vent pieces as the Onos smashes the door at the end of the corridor.
