  • Uga Buga!
Have you ever had a feeling that there's some ominous space lurking behind that suspicious wall, perhaps accessible through a camouflaged door, a trapdoor, an ancient mechanism, a fake bookcase or a poster plastered on the wall. Well, you've just entered that hidden room.

What do you see? How did you gain entry? Why is it hidden?



Judging criteria:

Concept - Is the idea novel and intriguing?
Playability - Would it work?
Artistic merit - Is it visually impressive?

Let's accept entries until Sunday May 24th, followed by a week of voting until Sunday May 31st. Good luck!



And so we have our entries :D!

I'm working on an entry. 
Don't let me forget it.  ;)

Can't take a lot of credit for this, since the main theme, the toilet, is from a really funny image I bumbled into during a Google Search.

An animated gif.



The shower curtain, fwiw, was something I tried initially, for this Blitz. Didn't like it all that well, but this was a chance to salvage it.  ;-)

Modeled and rendered in Anim8or.

Edit: I snagged another image for the shower curtain. I don't own the artwork on the curtain, so this isn't an entry. Just passing along cause I liked the effect.

Spoiler: ShowHide




Amazon lists the curtain, for them that's interested.

Here's my entry:

Imagine that an archeologist or a pirate finally uncovers the secret cavern containing what they've been seeking.

Sad to hear of the passing of Earthworm Jim and the use of his corpse as a rope. ;)

Nice background. Reminds me of Permanent Daylight.

Great job so far :). We have roughly five days until the deadline, so if anyone is working on a piece, get crackin'! Would love to get more entries.

I'm still working on it, just adding details, but doing very little at a time. :-[
But no matter what, unless my HD dies, the world ends, or something in those lines, I'll upload an entry.

It will have less detail than I wanted, but oh well, when I only put like half an hour daily, that's the end result.   (wtf)
So I just need to fix the ceiling lighting and then set the light levels, as it's currently a bit too dark.

Jack, this looks like an accident about to happen with all the toilet paper, alcohol distillery and open flames! :shocked:

Less detail than I wanted, but oh well... at least I post something this time around.  :)

Using Blender 2.82 and Cycles... still don't like Eevee  (roll)

Very nice.

But so dark, and I'm not talking about the lighting. :)

Eevee a shit. But I've seen people accomplish miracles with it. Just don't know how.

Concept - Jack (I like the idea of a just a hidden room).
Playability - kaizen101 (that's one cold hidden room... and the salad got the dressing.  (laugh))
Artistic merit - Jack (but those broken bricks need some extra work to be convincing... and just love the TP... very on topic)  (laugh)

@jwalt: Cool, love the idea, though the curtain images "ruin" the effect IMHO. But funny.  (laugh)

@TGames: Simple and effective. Though maybe some more darkness around the inside and edges of the hole would provide more depth and emphasize the chest and the bright light coming from the hole. In other others, missing a bit drama.  ;)

I'm voting Cassiebsg x3.

It reminds me of S.T.A.L.K.E.R (so does my entry), and I just love that lamp and its shadows on the top.
