- Hello everyone! Since a time ago i’ve been working on recreations of some Rayman levels,
we all miss a new 3D Rayman game, so I decided to create “new” levels of Rayman to give you
“something new” about Rayman.






Levels are developed in UE4 with a lot of love, at the moment I dont want make a rayman
game, cause my skills, and the time, are limited, this recreations helps me to train my Level
Design/Art skills cause I’m a “beginner” game developer.

The recreations are playable with Rayman, model with animations made by Nick Danielz

Here you have all the levels available for download, I will upload and notify when a new level is
finished here and on my twitter.

This is the oficial list of elements to implement/fix [RED = DOING | BLUE = TO DO | GREEN =
DONE
]
  • Make RayReCreations Social Media
  • Band Land Teaser Level
  • Decide the new level
  • Work on Land of the livid dead

- Hello everyone.

I'm glad to announce that the next level to be recreated is the Land of the Livid Dead!

Currently I'm working on the level design of the stages, the structure will be quite different but with some elements like The Tower of Light, the aquatic area of the Céloche, a special sanctuary...

IMPROVMENTS

· Now you can use a kind of helicopter (alpha 0.0001 :lol: )

· Collect red lums and the classics red & gold jewel

· You will advance to the other stages if you collect the new blue gems!

· Some Post Processing effects

· And more "secret" things!

You can see all the info, images, GIFs, videos... In this twitter hashtag

This is all very impressive!
I am happy that people still care much about Rayman 3 as most people are more interested in R2.
Good luck with the project!

-Hello there!

The development is going fine, the first level (Five in total) is almost finished.

Even I can show you two screenshots from a scene of the first level.

Which one do you prefer? :D

Awesome! :D

If it's for the Land of the Livid Dead, I think the blue version is more consistent with the original. Much as I love purple, I don't think it's suitable in this case…

I agree, I would prefer it blue rather than purple in this case because it would suit the theme of TLOTLD and overall, the Land of the Livid Dead as a whole a lot better. :)

The purple is an interesting touch, but the blue imo works better for that level.

Aaron thank you very much for your words!

You can check this hashtag from time to time and see how it progresses :D

Also guys, here you have another scene of the first level, from some days ago!

It's a hoodlum camp but... Without Hoodlums hahaha :oops2:

Wow I have to say that's quite good design right there!

Only thing is, the sky could use some clouds too that look like the ones in Rayman 3 and have the same weather conditions as in the original level because only then I think it would actually give off the true atmosphere and feel of the place. That magic and godly feel, you know.

Another thing, it overall looks kind of empty at the moment.

Other than that, it looks great already in my opinion!
And because this is the start of this project and there can be a lot of imperfections in this stage, I'm not trying to nitpick. I wasn't going to either way, but especially not at this point, so don't take it the wrong way as this was only meant as constructive criticism.

Before I started, I thought about adding enemies to the levels but decided not to add them.

I wanted to focus on the world itself and not so much on the gameplay.

But yes, it would be amazing to have them playing poker and fighting each other hahahahaha

Thank you very much!

First of all aaron thank you, thank you and thank you for your feedback and words, I love the constructive critics, cause helps a lot to a beginner like me :coeur:

Minutes ago I added the yellow & red jewels, red lums and... The blue jewel.

As you say the weather is very important cause it helps to increase and immerse the player to the atmosphere of magic, mistery and calm of the level, I really must improve this!

Have a nice day!

Indeed it would. :mrgreen:

I like what I'm seeing so far, and I know working on this project would be difficult, while also very time consuming. I wish you the best of luck with it, I can't wait to see what progress is made! :)

Also, I might be a tad late, but the blue definitely works better for LOTLD. I like the purple colour, but as others have said, it fits the level better with the blue.

Yeah, it's quite difficult work on this alone, even more if I my skills on 3D model & animation are very limited and I'm working parallelly on another project

But also is a challenge for me, not only to improve on game development/level design, also to make something interesting for the Rayman Community.

Btw thank you very much Steo, and have a nice day! :D
