WiiU Release Confirmed! How It's Made: Characters
We blew well past our WiiU target yesterday, just one day after we confirmed Playstation 4, Vita, and Linux! Thank you all for making this happen, and welcome to all of our new Nintendo backers!
How It's Made: Characters
For this update I wanted to try something a little different, and start giving you all an inside look at the process for how Liege is being created. In the video below, I'll walk you through the details on how the game's characters are being created from concept to in-game sprite. I'll also talk a bit about some areas I'm hoping to improve through Art 2.0 and otherwise.
In later videos I'll be sharing through the course of development, I'll be covering how we create our environments, along with any other topics that you're interested in learning more about. If you prefer not to see all the grisly details of how a game gets made, you may want to skip these; otherwise, I hope you'll find them interesting!
Once again, thank you all for your support. We had a record day yesterday on the heels of our Playstation confirmations, WiiU announcement, lots of corresponding press coverage, and the amazing job you've all done to help spread the word. Kickstarter is now counting down our campaign in hours; please keep up the great work this weekend so we can finish off strong! And as I've been hearing from some of you in the comments: Onward toward the Burning City!
