Disco Elysium, the open-world detective RPG that straddles the line between point-and-click and tabletop role-playing games, just got a free Collage Mode to Fabricate New Scenes. This diorama tool is a gift to the community from developers ZA/UM Studio.
It puts all of the characters, props and environments from the game into your hands, so you can make any scene you want. That includes silly poses, filters and weather effects, and even custom text.
ZA/UM Studios has added a Collage Mode to its popular detective RPG Disco Elysium, allowing players to construct new scenes from scratch. The update allows players to drag and drop characters, environments, props and filters from the game, creating their own dioramas with an array of weather effects and time of day.
The update arrives amid a recent legal dispute between Disco Elysium’s developer ZA/UM and a handful of its former employees. In 2022, designer Robert Kurvitz, artist Alexander Rostov and writer Helen Hindpere said they were fired from ZA/UM after the company’s ownership changed.
While the new Collage Mode is a great way to create custom screenshots, it also offers the chance to fabricate completely new dramas from unforgivable punch-ups to fruity yet forbidden kisses. It also features never-before-seen scenes that will include a velvety new voiceover from the game’s narrator. Be sure to check it out for yourself! The update is available now on PC and will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in the coming days.
Disco Elysium developer ZA/UM Studio has released an update for the game on PC today, which brings a Collage Mode that allows you to make your own screenshots. This diorama tool gives you full access to characters, environments and props, along with filters, frames and fan-made stickers.
With these tools, you can create whatever scenes you want in Martinaise. You can place and rotate your favorite character models, change the weather, and add retina-burning filters to create a stunning Diorama of your very own.
Moreover, Collage Mode also lets you write your own dialogue to go along with the scene you’ve created. This will allow you to weave a new drama from unforgivable punch-ups to fruity yet forbidden kisses.
Collage Mode is a great addition to Disco Elysium, and it’s free for all players. We’d love to see your creations, so be sure to tag us in any of your screenshots! We’ll post them in this article.
The new Collage Mode (opens in new tab) for ZA/UM’s Disco Elysium adds an entirely new way of playing the 2019 RPG, as players can now assemble scenes using characters and environments. This diorama tool, available on PC and consoles over the coming days, allows users to drag and drop characters across paintery environments, add backgrounds, stickers, frames, filters, and even write their own dialogue.
There’s also plenty of props and filters to work with too, and the weather is flexible as well – if you want your scene to be set in a rainy night, for example, you can change the time of day or even enable the Visual Calculus effect.
Interestingly, the Collage Mode update for Disco Elysium arrives amid a public dispute between ZA/UM and some of its former creatives. Several of them, including former designer Robert Kurvitz and artist Sander Taal, have issued a statement disputing the studio’s recent announcement. They claim it “wrong and misleading” in a number of ways, which is pretty impressive.
Disco Elysium is a video game that blends genres in an unusual way. It mixes open world action with classic tabletop role-playing games. It’s a masterclass in genre-bending.
The latest update from ZA/UM Studio, released on PC and coming to consoles over the next few days, adds a Collage Mode that gives players full access to characters, environments, effects, and custom dialogue to create their own screenshots. Fabricate completely new dramas from unforgivable punch-ups to fruity yet forbidden kisses by placing, rotating and resizing your favourite characters across the painterly environments.
The update also brings a host of other features to the photo mode, including filters and effects, backgrounds, character poses, border frames, and fan-made stickers. Additionally, a “velvety new voiceover from the game’s narrator” is included in the download.
