ZA/UM Studio has announced a new mode for the critically acclaimed video game Disco Elysium and Nintendo Switch owners won’t have long until they can try it out. The new mode is titled Collage Mode which allows players to have the ability to create and set the scene in and around Martinaise. They will have full access to characters, environments, effects, and custom dialogue to create the screenshots that they have always desired and fabricate completely new dramas from unforgivable punch-ups to fruity yet forbidden kisses.
“Collage Mode is an incredible tool that puts the characters, environments, and visual effects from Disco Elysium into the hands of all the players to create original art. It also allows you to examine our brush strokes up close and lets you pose and twirl the character models as if they were toys in the palm of your hand. You can really see up close how the artists came together to create the game’s distinctive look, which extends to brand new art we made specifically for this mode.”Kaspar Tamsalu, Art Director at ZA/UM Studio
“This latest update offers a completely new way to explore the world of Disco Elysium as it’s simultaneously a doll house, a blank canvas, and a storytelling machine. We made this for our hugely talented fans as we’ve spent years admiring everything they create, from luscious paintings to memorable short stories and amazing cosplay — now we hope there will be much more! We only ask that they please go easy on Kim Kitsuragi, he can only take so much love.”Chris Priestman, the Collage Mode Lead.
Key features of Collage Mode include:
PLACE AND POSE
Place, rotate, and resize your favourite characters across the game’s painterly environments and then pick from a range of silly and sensible poses to strike.
Create a whole story with a single image by entering custom text that can be placed anywhere and even make it look authentic by using the FELD dialogue reel.
Bring out your inner Art Cop by applying weird and wonderful filters; choosing from rain, fog, and snow; as well changing the time of day to capture the exact mood you’re after.
STICK ‘EM UP
Put gloves and guns in unsuspecting hands with a huge collection of items and clothing stickers or add extra style with new and extraordinary art from our talented collaborators.
Finish up by choosing a frame to wrap up your fantasy with audacious themes such as Kim Catsuragi, F**k The World, Visual Calculus, and Building Communism.
BONUS! SECRETS TO FIND
Hunt for never-before-seen scenes from across Martinaise history if you’ve got a keen enough eye for it and enjoy a velvety new voiceover from the game’s narrator.
