Hello everyone, today I want to tell you about the upcoming mobile game we are building now – Digital Animals.

Digital Animals is an exciting third-person puzzled adventure RPG game where you embark on a journey through different worlds. You can choose your own animal, imbued with a Soul, to traverse the expanses of this universe, complete mini-quests and solve puzzles.

The game is being developed by a small indie studio consisting of less than 15 both professionals and newcomers in the game development field, all eager to make their mark in the mobile gaming space. Digital Animals Game is our inaugural product, and we believe we have every chance to create something truly exceptional for all mobile device users.

One of our key objectives during the development phase is to share the game creation process in detail, allowing users to appreciate our dedication and the quality of the gaming product. Over the course of 3 months, we transitioned our development from Unreal Engine 4 to Unreal Engine 5. It's a rather complex process, but our goal is to create an outstanding game with a rich narrative that resonates with players, rather than just occupying another spot in the marketplace for the sake of profit.

Available platforms: iOS / Android

Game Engine: Unreal Engine 5.3

We’ve been transitioning from UE 4 to UE 5.3 because we saw more advantages for mobile development in the next-gen engine:

  • A well-tuned particle system for mobile devices thanks to Ribbon.
  • WorldPartition automatically attaches objects to chunks.
  • It's easier to work on the world map, with fewer conflicts during part merging since it saves the object itself, not just the chunk.
  • The flocking system and voxel plugin are operational.
  • HLOD configuration is convenient with just one click, and despite some tool limitations, we found a way to create it.
  • An undeniable advantage is higher image quality compared to UE4.

Additionally, support for UE4 ceased about a year ago, and developers are increasingly transitioning to the latest version. For us, it became essential to create our first game on UE 5.3. In the future, we will keep an eye on trends and updates to ensure our game product remains up-to-date and relevant for all players.

More information about the project is coming soon! Stay tuned for publications and our updates on this page.

Our dedicated team has been hard at work refining the gameplay experience. We've been meticulously planning Animal Paths, ensuring a seamless journey as you navigate through various terrains, discovering hidden Links and interacting with diverse creatures. Picture this: a Hangar location with captivating Link puzzles, each designed to challenge and engage players in unique ways.

These reactors serve as dynamic elements, creating obstacles and puzzles that will test your skills and strategic thinking. Your animal companion's attributes, like HP & Will, are now seamlessly integrated into the Slot system, adding depth to your gaming strategy.

We've added a Moon Shader, implemented VFX ribbons for creatures like Swallow and Deer, and introduced a Power activation animation that brings the skeletal mesh to life. The picturesque landscapes of the Terra world have undergone a makeover with an updated Skybox and new Power 3D models to further elevate your gaming experience.

Now, let's talk mechanics! With the implementation of SlotUI in the Monument object, unlocking passive slots and interacting with the slots menu has never been smoother. We've revamped the slot architecture, ensuring a seamless transition between animal abilities and avoiding any loss of input during the process.

And for our tech enthusiasts, the transition from Unreal Engine 4 to Unreal Engine 5.2 has been a game-changer. This move empowers us to harness advanced features like Ribbon for mobile devices, WorldPartition for optimized object attachment, and a flocking system that adds a touch of realism to our vibrant universe.
