Four Seasons: Das Avatar

The iconic Nickelodeon series Avatar: Lord of the elements is more than easy child entertainment for me; It is one of the best cartoon series for young and old. And apparently I'm not the only one who thinks: from love of the Avatar series, Ella Gaming works and his team on a full avatar game. In conversation with ELLA, I have a lot of work on the project, the challenges for the team and upcoming levels.

The largest avatar fan project so far

ELLA is a German YouTuber with a great passion for the avatar universe. If he could tame an element, the fire would be because then he never had to eat or make tea warm. Practically! For over two years, ELLA has been working on Four Seasons — A Fan-Created Avatar Game and binds its community via Twitch and YouTube.

The ambitious project should appear in the PlayStation game Dreams by Media Molecule (Little Big Planet), which provides you with a wide range of developer tools to create your own games, but also animation films, music pieces or paintings.

An older version of the Avatar game has been playable for everyone for about a year in Dreams and already hit high waves. On YouTube Ella Gaming is now over 300,000 people. In Dreams the user writes Snoop Dogg to the avatar game: That's so great. I pursue the project since you started, and finally got Dreams, just to play that. (Source: In dreams)

Four Seasons stay true to the original

ELLA and his four-headed team work on all three books in chronological order. Their goal is to reproduce the series of serial as close as possible. There are nothing comparable to the avatar universe in the game industry, says Ella, and that's why I want to do it as well as possible.

After over ten years without a real avatar eyeing game, the fan project is a true blessing. Although the team for reasons of licensing, the Avatar essence reflects the fan project. The music is a good example: a team member has created original soundtracks for all three books that impressively capture the avatar charm. (Source: Spotify, CJ Music) Even some original synchronizers showed in advance of interest in a participation.

ELLA looks at each episode twice and then goes through frame for frame to recreate the screens of the series as original as possible. As a small source of inspiration, the first — and how ELLA itself had to determine — not well-aged avatar games. Nevertheless, the avatar fan game goes very own ways.

How does Four Seasons play?

Four Seasons is a story adventure with a lot of exploration, puzzle deposits and fighting. With your faithful Himmelsbison APA, you travel from a serial show to the next. The focus is above all on the different locations with which ELLA wants to create the necessary variation.

In particular, book 1 is beneficial, because playful you can first use only Gang's rod and its aviation forces and shuts down the water rendering, as in the series. A skill tree should expand the gameplay over time and, for example, unlock double jumps and other skills.

With Memo, however, you can solve puzzles and achieve hidden places to find collection items. Other playable figures are initially not provided. In addition, is planned for each area at least one mini-game, such as the Pin quin slide ride in the southern water tribe or a simplified version of Pie Who.

In the published pre-alpha version, you can already get to know a pair of the unripe gameplay mechanics, such as Gang's Air scooter and other acrobatics.

Limits of the avatar fan game

Whether in the gameplay or Level Design — Ella's fan game often encounters its limits. This is usually due to Dreams itself, because The game construction box has now been a limited capacity. Divided and displayed it is based on a gameplay and graphics thermometer.

Gang with all animations he has straight, starts 70 percent of the gameplay thermometer. And for example, Omaha has already 95 percent on the graphics thermometer. One tries to broadcast there, so that you die as much as possible, but it is difficult to balance.

Currently, ELLA and his team help with many tricks to save resources. That's why ELLA hopes a speedy and powerful PS5 upgrade for Dreams. But that would also mean that the fan project is probably PS5-exclusive.

What you can look forward to

ELLA and his team have recently completed Omaha, the largest and very most impressive for me in person. By the way, they work around at already known levels. The work on previously unpublished sections has already begun. As in the series, the sickle island and the Selling village follow, whereupon Ella so far is most proud. Selling Village is one to one as in the show. The whole buildings are in the right place, and you can also go back to the burnt forest.

Thus, the first season would have been completed almost half. A fixed release date is not yet available for book 1 — water, and you can expect that will be the complete game with all three seasons for several years in development. I can imagine very well that I'm in parallel to book 2 or 3 in a traditional engine pure foxes and something original creates, reveals Ella.
