I’ve just discovered that a pair of teaser trailers have gone live for “DEEP“, the animated feature film being built on the Source engine, which we discussed yesterday. Let’s take a look, shall we?
As you can see, the teaser trailers depict a number of scenes from the upcoming film, although these are entirely work-in-progress, as DEEP is still in pre-production and doesn’t even have a tentative release timeframe. So if it looks rough around the edges – don’t worry, it’ll improve.
For something built on Source (as we know it, at least), it looks pretty impressive, even if there is a lot of reused 2004 HL2 content, such as the classic City 17 Eastern European cars, which actually show up in a couple of shots. Overall, it looks pretty great, and I wish Valve’s games looked more like this.
But for a high-profile animated feature film? Let’s just say it still needs a fair bit of work – but still, I have faith in Brown Bag’s abilities to make this one a looker, when it comes out in the (hopefully) near future.
Thanks to Emil for the tip!
