Gameplay update coming soon... (hopefully)

We're preparing a video on gameplay and we think we might be able to release it on Monday. We don't really know yet for sure, as we may just look at it after the edit and squirm and whinge... but we promise you to do our best since this is the most important update as we need to address the most important issue, what will the gameplay be like?

The video will basically have myself trying very hard to explain what it is going to be like and some illustrations to embellish on my point. The actual gameplay footage... is very far from ready so please understand that that won't be out for a while.

New headers

New headers have been updated on the main page and you'd be able to checkout awesome chibi drawings by Asami Hagiwara (Artist to be announced soon!). If you keep on checking within the next few days... something might happen!?

* Please note that these styles, although cute and awesome will not be used for the game.

An official wiki page opens!

We've partnered with the fantastic folks at Curse.com and our official wiki has opened at the link below. Check it out!

Sylrianah themed Wallpaper

Since we are preparing for a largeish update and also working on several promotional activities, we couldn't really get you a nice chunky update today. So we decided to release some wallpapers of Princess Sylrianah so won't rage over the tiny update. We're sorry!

It's only in two sizes for now, but we will definitely listen to requests of other wallpaper sizes. You can download them from the link below:

      Bad Engrish!
      Sorry I meant we'll be posting Asami's profile on the main page soon.

      Also, we cannot reveal TAKE-B's identity for like... ever.

      @Joshua I'm 90% sure Hiro meant revealing TAKE-B's identity - it doesn't make sense for Asami Hagiwara to be that person considering the description given for TAKE-B.

      Ruined a perfectly good Princess Sylrianah wallpaper with a triple stacked, bright white, highlighted in shadow copyright mark. Surely that could have been more tastefully replaced with the artist's signature/mark and a little "c" thing by the Project Phoenix title. Seen others put the legal hoopla into a single text line and subtle black font along a bottom corner where it is discreetly covered by the windows taskbar when on a desktop.

      Thanks for the wallpaper! Can't wait for the gameplay video - take your time and make sure it looks great. Showing off something tangible is probably the most important part of successful Kickstarter campaigns nowadays... Bigger projects can't get away with funny videos and nothing to show anymore. Not after Broken Age...

      The update reads: "New headers have been updated on the main page and you'd be able to checkout awesome chibi drawings by Asami Hagiwara (Artist to be announced soon!)"

      Um... what do you mean "Artist to be announced soon?" You just told us it was Asami Hagiwara.

      Once that gameplay is up (even though you might not appreciate it as developers because you want to do so much more) it will help to promote this as it can be shared even more so than posts. Many people prefer gameplay to updates, personally I like the updates as the gameplay isn't finalized...

      Its almost like a birthday present... you know what you asked for, but until you open it you don't know what you got, maybe its better than what you expected, maybe it is what you expected... but since its a birthday present you should never be dissatisfied with the results :)

      Nice update again. You guys are doing a great job with all these news. I've got many games to play but can't stop thinking about this one, specially since I listened to the Elven Glades WIP. Can't stop playing it!

      By the way, if you don't mind my going back to earlier matters, I've read that: "Nintendo May Have Removed Japanese Indie Ban on Wii U eShop."

      It is not official, but it looks like the aplication form does not include the Japanese restriction anymore, leaving only the gaps for first and last names, and the email address.

      I'm sure you will be having a look at it as soon as word is spread, and if it ends up being true, of course. But just in case, I wanted to let you know.

      Keep up the good work!!

      He'll deserve a world record for being the first person to not sleep for ~1.5 years then.
      My incentive was working past midnight is some serious and admirable dedication. "Passion" just irradiates from this project alone. (Y)

      Artists don't sleep until AFTER the project is done. This is a well-known fact!! :P

      Artists sleep AFTER the project is delivered. This is a well-known fact :P

      Nice update. Real good that there's a wiki to centralize all the information.
      And woah! Those are some huge wallpapers, but please make a non-WS version so I can put them on my work system. These probably won't look that good on dual 1280x1024 displays.

      Also, totally agree with Abdergraund. We need some Ruffles wallpapers :)

      Cheers, for a nice little update at near 3 am in the morning.
      Hiro, you seem to be working on this project almost 24/7; how much sleep do you get seriously?

    14. Andergraund on

      Thanks for the wallpaper ... maybe next time can you post a compilation of the very cute Ruffles pics/icons as wallpaper? ^_^

    15. Seizui on

      ...You know, it kind of hit me. ...Shouldn't there be information on the characters themselves first before the gameplay? I mean, it is usually easier on showing information defining the characters than it is providing a 'gameplay prototype' or visual.

      Granted, you guys are likely hard at work with providing that information, but just wanted to point that out.

    16. Min'rocheem Lungelow on

      any chance of a high res wallpaper of that awesome Project Phoenix background you use in the concept video?

    17. Seizui on

      Hiro,

      Honestly, you're making a good step with these constant updates. These not only notify the public, but this will also raise some more interest. And it is appreciative that the character is called Rafel for the official side of the story.

      Ok SO SORRY about that! I don't know what happened. No edit no delete I'm guessing, right? :S

    19. Killer Bunny of Sin on

      Looking forward to the gameplay update.

      I agree with Halko! This place is getting very lively and it's great to get more updates and news! Can't check the wallpaper now but I sure will when I'm home!
      I'm really looking forward to the gameplay video too! I'm guessing this will be a mockup, right?

      No need to apologize, I think most of us faithfuls actually like frequent updates no matter the size :)

      Please spam us with updates. Never apologize for news man cause even small amounts of news are generally worth it.

      Holy crap. Those wallpapers are huge. Who needs other sizes when these will meet everyone's needs!? lol

      Great! I'm looking forward to seeing this video.
