Hi everyone! Heads up - here's an AURO update for November!
Hey Kickstarter buddies. Just writing to let you know we put up a new blog post explaining the reason for our delays, and some new hires. Things are going smoothly again now, and we're working as hard as we can to get this damn game out!
Blog post! http://www.dinofarmgames.com/auro-delays-and-new-hires/
Thanks for sticking with us. We promise when we finally get this thing out you won't be disappointed!
So I thought I should fill you guys in a bit on what's been up in terms of AURO's programmer. We've unfortunately had to part ways with the coder we've been working with since the Kickstarter campaign ended.
We want to make sure that development starts back up again ASAP. Hopefully if we can find someone passionate about the project we shouldn't lose much time because of this.
We've got a ton of feelers out and we're certain that it won't be a big issue, as it's a pretty sweet deal we think. The game is close to being finished, so it would only be 1-2 months of pre-release work, and after that we'd be able to pay you in the form of profit-sharing (we can get into details privately). Hopefully, we could even find someone who's interested in working with Dinofarm long-term.
So, just to put one more feeler out there - any of you guys know someone, or possibly are someone who might be interested in the job? Contact me at email@example.com if so.
Either way - don't worry! We'll get someone great and continue development ASAP!
The good news is that artwork is like BASICALLY 100% finished (maybe 99.9%). This will also give us an extra week or two to review Story Mode and Tutorial and really make them awesome. Blake and I are also spending the remaining time finishing the soundtrack. So, everything is going well, and we hope that this will only set our schedule back a month or possibly two.
