We really need to stop feature creeping new assets, art time for omni unity was originally just going to be a port from XNA models to Unity Engine, we all got distracted by improving the game when the timeline allocation was specified for only a port -A

Things learned from omni

Plan everything out ahead of time. Time spent in preproduction saves months of dev time. -Ian and Shiraz

Standardization and more resources will allow for much much nicer looking games. - Shiraz

Art style must be defined from the start, "everything goes" doesn't work. - S

Smooth frames rates and optimizations come from game design from the ground up, not technical tricks later. Game needs to be designed in a way that what is viewable is controlled. Line of sight blocking etc. -Ian

DoTA - V

League of Legends - V

Heroes of Newerth - V

Harsh reality: The real problem is that Omni is NOT special. It's a DotA clone, and right from the start we were told to make a DotA clone, and that's all it'll ever be. All we can ever do is try to be the BEST DotA clone. -Ian
