From modeling to game development: the story behind the Claw Hunter

“This island is revered by the tribes living on adjacent islands as a place where the heaven meets the earth - a forbidden ground. Some tribesmen are banished here for their crimes, some go here voluntarily to mine precious minerals and harvest rare plants. All must fight for their lives though as the island is populated by the dragons of the old times...”

These are the lines you read in the description of a new adventure game Claw Hunter, co-created by Jiri Adamec, or simply Adamec as known within CGTrader community. Having joined CGTrader in 2014, Jiri has brought some amazing work and expertise of developing photo realistic animal models to CGTrader community, and today he is sharing the story behind developing a video game.

In the game you can see Adamec’s own 3D models like Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Raptor, etc., which can also be found on his CGTrader profile.
