We have another addition to the team to announce...our 3-D modeler and texture artist, Juan Gil. Juan has done work on the Twisted Metal series and, recently, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. You can check out some of his work here!
That's two members added to the team, and we've got one more coming up soon...our 3-D animator, responsible for bringing those models to life. That'll round out the art team, and full production can begin.
In other news, after a series of complex technology tests regarding the voice recognition systems and graphical coherence between 2-D and 3-D systems, we've decided to move to the Unity platform over XNA/MonoGame. It provides a wide framework of useful tools (navigation mesh implementation says hello), and the community support is second-to-none. We've already begun porting over the prototype and adding in non-filler graphical elements.
T-Shirts have been printed! They should start shipping out sometime in the next week or so. If you're a $100+ backer, look forward to them arriving shortly!
Finally, for any $60+ backers who haven't yet submitted their auditions, you have until Friday at 11:59 PM PST to get them in. We've had some incredible submissions both here in LA and through Kickstarter already, so you better bring your A-game.
We move into our new offices on June 1st! Expect some lovely pictures then.
