Unfortunately no. Partially because all the big RPG releases (Wasteland3, BaldursGate3, Cyberpunk) were moved to the second part of the year (or even my original release date). I don't really want to release alongside one of the bigs... Though, it's also because I misjudged the amount of work and included some unplanned visual reworks (e.g. character animation rehaul).Are you still aiming at Early Access later this year?
It is not easy to find a suitable portrait for every character in the game, especially since we have a limited budget and cannot afford models and photo shoots. Even though we have a pool of photos to work with, sometimes you need something very specific - ethnicity, hair, age - and the right angle. That can be a big problem and the one that Generated Photos solves well - you can specify quite detailed parameters and then have a selection of consistent portraits to choose from. And another less common but important aspect is that there are times when we need to portray less than admirable characters, and then it is safer and worry-free to use artificial "actors"."
