My first encounter with CryEngine. The goal was to create visually appealing map with contrasting colder interior and warmer exterior space with good variety of surfaces and lighting, as well as the map that can work as a narrative device and tell a story to watchful spectator. This environment was inspired mainly by the abandoned soviet nuclear lighthouse located inside the polar circle.
