ZA/UM Studio’s award-winning freedom of choice RPG, Disco Elysium, is adding Collage Mode in a free update. Now available on PC, the update will roll out to consoles over the coming days.
Keeping with the game’s theme of freedom of choice, in Collage Mode, players can create and set a seen in and around the small district of Martinaise. Players will have full access to characters, environments, effects, and custom dialogue to create screenshots and invent new dramas. From unforgivable punch-ups to fruity yet forbidden kisses, using Disco Elysium‘s Collage Mode players are free to create original art.
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
In Collage Mode, players can place, rotate, and resize their favorite characters in different game environments. Various poses can be chosen that range from silly to sensible.
Just using a single image, players an write a whole story by entering custom text. This dialogue can be placed anywhere and can be made to look authentic using the FELD dialogue reel.
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, Director of Business Development and the Collage Mode Lead, ZA/UM Studio
