DnD Adventure in UE4

The city of Neunbach meets Unreal Engine 4.

As we recently started playing DnD with some friends in a one take shot I was asking myself how it would change the atmosphere and the gameplay itself as well as the impressions for the audience as we are streaming our one takes, if I would use a setting within the unreal engine as 3d table-top cardboard to visualize the pen-and-paper roundup instead of using static 2d maps.

The first impression of Neunbach city – modeled after the idea of

Of course, as the one-page-adventure corresponding to this ue4 project has not yet taken place, I cannot go into any detail, but there will be a blog post after we played this adventure as well as a “making of”.


The first character

It has been silent for a while now, but therefor I can give you a closer look on the first character for Vannacart.

Just to mention here is that the result you see below is the work of only four hours so far.

N-Vitral sitting in a Kart

Do you recognize the character yet?


Main Menu first look

Right after the first artwork of Walstatt we want to give you the first look to the game’s main menu.

The names of the gametypes are not final and just for testing purposes, but it gives you a more atmospheric feeling of the setting Walstatt takes place in. It also teases you the game’s OST.


Wallpaper for Walstatt

Although we did not give you much (or honestly any) information about Walstatt, except for the subtitle, we do have the first wallpaper art ready which may give you a hint about what setting we are talking.

You can surely expect more to come in the near future, as we are keeping up the work on this title.

Most tech-related stuff is done, so right now we focus on characters and props.



With not spoiling too much, here are two more Karts for Vannacart, without any comment in general, as THAT would spoil too much of which characters these are for.

But maybe you find the one or another hint.

Basic scenery in-engine test.

The first testmule

So, whenever it comes to games development you are in the need of a test mule to check your things you made. In this case, the test mule for Vannacart is this purple thing which will remain as the first kart ingame.

Yet we will not reveal for which character this purple monster is.


So, it begins

Not going into much detail for now, we finally started working on a concept hidden deep in our desks as an raw idea for years:

Dr. Vannacut’s Vannacart

Dr. Vannacut's Vannacart

Vannacart is – yet – meant as a working title, but who knows, maybe it will stay!

What is Vannacart all about?

Vannacart is a grown-up casual racer, just as CTR (Crash Team Racing) is, but, with nothing but hardcore-djs and -producers as characters!

We will not unveil yet who will be part of it – maybe you have got any suggestions out there?
