Reward Update and Some Animations
We suck. Rewards go out this Monday January 23rd. Why? Because we only got half of the T-Shirts and the rest didn't arrive until last week. Not making excuses. But they go out Monday. Cardboard tubes with posters and T-Shirts. Feel free to kick us in our collective junk.
Soundtrack will be later this year, before release of the game, for those of you asking - we're waiting til the last possible second to do the SFX and music so that were working as efficiently as possible.
When is the game coming out? This year, first half very likely. The good news is that we are now working on the game FULL TIME. So we have gotten done in the last month what was taking us two months before. It has been great.
So why are things taking so long? Well, we have a couple animations to show you to give you an idea of what to expect from the game. This should give you an idea of the quality we are shooting for, the spirit and the painstaking process of frame by frame animation and design.
The first is a crew member arriving to your ship through teleport, saluting you, ready for duty (and painful death).
The second is - well we're not gonna tell you. But it's part of a room upgrade where horrible things happen.
Sorry we have been so quiet - we are very very busy working on the game, making it as badass as humanly possible. We do have a fairly firm release date set, one that we are very confident we can hit. We have learned a lot of lessons about development as the project has gone on, and think we have a good grasp of our workflow and what we can get done within the scope of the project.
Also, we just did torpedo explosions hitting your hull (the animation portion, the mechanic has been in there for a while). It's awesome.
More to come soon....
