Did you miss The Odd Gentlemen’s awesome talk at GDC Next last month? “No,” you say? FOR SHAME! A POX UPON YOUR FAMILY…is what I’d be saying if there wasn’t an easy way to fix that. Today Gamasutra posted a video of our Wayward Manor/Lego talk. The segment is called “An Odd Collaboration: How Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen Decided to Make Wayward Manor Together.” Pull up a chair and enjoy!

Do you know where 3D art (for example high res desktop wallpapers) come from? Well little Timmy, it all starts when an image concept and an artist love each other very much…
One of the awesome pre-order incentives for Wayward Manor is a wallpaper featuring characters from the game. If you bought this pre-order package you can look forward to the wallpaper soon. But back to my original point: where do 3D images/wallpapers come from? We make them. Here are some pictures illustrating the process. We’re creating a new image just for you. Here’s how we do it.
The first image shows the character rigs. These allows the artist to pose them.
The second image shows the wireframe of the geometry.
The third image shows the characters in full texture before they are rendered.
And boom! The finished product.
If you pre-ordered this, your high res fancy version will be coming soon. Want to get your own Wayward Manor merch? Check out WhoHauntsNeil.com.

Every day in The Odd Gentlemen we office are subjected to an A/C that won’t quit. No, really, we can’t turn it off. We can’t control the temperature in our own office. And truth be told, I’m (Nikole here) freezing all day long. This goes on all day until 6:03. At that exact moment everyday the AC turns off. To vent our air vent frustrations, we decided to write haiku about 6:03. Sweet, sweet 6:03.
change of one degree
matters the most to cold hands
three past six, no gloves
breathy canned air stops
and stillness once again reigns
in the Realm of Odd
All day, warm or cool
condition ceases, silent
at six o three, shh.
Trapped in a cold room.
Smothered by too many coats.
Depression is cold.
Relief comes at 6:03.
I can feel again.
All day we are powerless.
Three past six. Our time.
Six O Two, Ice Cold
Hope lost, bone chill, Six O Three
Slightly Warmer Now
A.C. in Winter
Frozen Fudgesicle Game Devs
Low Calorie Treat
Fixing buggy code
six o three, too shy to say
i did not notice air
This is what we’re doing at 6:40pm. Now back to making video games.
Today The Odd Gentlemen would like to use tumblr for what it was truly made for: cute pictures of animals. Rather than promote Wayward Manor (which is our upcoming, top-notch adventure game), we’d like to share with you The Top Gentlemanly Animals, as deemed by a lengthy Google Image search. Behold ladies and gentlemen, these animals have class!
