Straight up, Oort Online is a beautiful game. A solid art direction, vibrant colors, and some powerful lighting and weather effects combine to create a dynamic visual experience that warrants a moment of admiration. The passion expressed in the developer’s Introduction Trailer is apparent in droves with striking ‘wow’ moments stealing your attention frequently.
Each scene of the time-lapse was recorded in-game over various periods of the game’s day/night and weather cycles across multiple worlds. These worlds are accessible via portals, through which players can seamlessly travel to explore, to build or to meet up with friends. Each location can feature a unique environment and distinct stylization, ranging from a bright, lush forest to an icy frozen tundra. The result is an impressive variety of eye candy to which no filters were applied; what you see is what you play.
