Vanguard Clips from Silky Venom

Silky Venom just released an extremely high quality movie. Those of you on a dial-up connection, the file is 43 Mb in size, so it will take a while to download.

This apparently is an introduction to a series of videos by Nólaquen of Silky Venom.

It starts out by having Sigil Online Games staff introduce themselves, then goes on to a gameplay video showcasing the new continent of Kojan.

The sky and water in the game are incredibly realistic. In a few screenshots on the official Vanguard site, it looks like the clouds are in fact rendered objects that can block one's view of mountains, etc. The beginning of the Qalian harbor shot hints at an underwater viewpoint, then goes on to show off a huge harbor and a beautiful inlet, with the meta-waves clearly visible as large ripples on the surface.

Kojan is gorgeous. Just watch the video and you'll agree with me.

The segment on Thestra showed the game from a chracter's perspective, walking along the ground and into a windmill with the gears turning believably. Many games don't bother to make similar animations realistic (not mentioning any names, World of Warcraft) or simply leaving them out altogether (again, not mentioning any names).

All in all, this movie was spectacular and very professional-looking. I can't wait for the next one.
