For Those Who Missed it: The Phoenix Hangout. Some Art, and a Poll!

Posted by CIA, Inc. (Creator)

Thank you to everyone who showed up Saturday evening/Sunday morning (depending on where you are) to the Phoenix Hangout and asked us questions!  As always, we're aiming to have one every month and the next one will be in December.  So if you all have any questions, do jot it down and take the opportunity to ask us during the next Hangouts session! 

In this latest Hangout, we were able to use the time to talk a lot about the setting (not surprising given how many of the updates as of late have focused on Azuregard) and what people can expect out of the story.  For those who missed it, you can catch what Hiro and I talked about below:


As we mentioned early on in the Hangout, the main focus right now is on getting the art assets prepared and that's by necessity because without the art, we will not be able to showcase the gameplay.  With that in mind, our Japan-based art team is hard at work and this is what their latest effort has yielded.  Take a look and tell us what you think of the archmage Zarum!

This version of Zarum still retains the sour demeanor and generally intimidating appearance, but well, we can only do so much to make him lovable.  That lovable bit is something he'll have to work on...


Finally, if you watched all the way to the end, we do have a question for all of you: which version of the dragon do you prefer?

You basically have the choice between Dragon A and Dragon B!  Dragon A's horns are much larger than Dragon B's and take up a prominent position on its head.  Dragon B's horns are much smaller, but that allows you to be able to see his ears.  Let us know in the comments below about which version you prefer!

      I like dragon A exactly as it is.

    2. Ehren on

      In hindsight I should've kept the eyes small for dragon D

    3. Ehren on

      I got bored so here you go guys; not the best Photoshop but you all wanted to see...

      If you could put B's ears on A, or A's eyes on B, you'd have the perfect dragon.

    5. Crescent Fawn Studios on

      Can B's ears and horns be put on A?

    6. Christopher Carl on

      I like A. But I also like B's ears. Maybe a little combination.

    7. Corey Butler on

      I would really love to see Ogre Battle 64 or the Ogre battle series inspired game play, squad management, and combat!

      for the head above the eyes, i prefer dragon B...

      for the rest of the dragon, i prefer dragon A...

    9. Ahmed on

      Dragon A all the way!

      Dragon A. Not because of the horns or the ears but because of the crooked snout.

      Dragon A is very good for what I think your trying to accomplish.

    12. Kuragari on

      Dragon A since Dragon B looks more like an Imp.

      I say Dragon A, but that's because the horns look like ears. I'd say take A's design and put ears where the horns are (with the exact same shape as the horns), and put mini horns on top like B's.

    14. Eijhu on

      I'll also have to go with Dragon A.

    15. Rebecca Fiala on

      A. A is more suitable for more situations. Plus, it looks overall more like a dragon.

    16. Blltz Kittinan on

      Dragon A please. Dragon B is now dragon, it's a freaking fairy with monster head :P

    17. Romain Ravella on

      I prefer Dragon A. B seems to be cute or a dragon can't be just cute ^^

    18. Cael K. on

      Dragon A, please. The eyes on B are a bit offsetting.

      I like A but B's ears are awesome.

    20. Vash on

      A. Because B is like a little cuttie pet or something. A is more like a dragon but like a baby dragon. Would be better a bit (just a bit) older.

      Ignifer on

      A. It looks much more dragon-like to me - the head shape of B looks too bulbous.

    22. Jussi Myllyluoma

      B, definitely.

    23. Shannon on

      I prefer A. B seems to remind me of a Pokémon.

    24. Joe Brower on

      B! Ears are much cuter, and I like the little horns on top. :)

    25. Nathan on

      A, I like B's ears better.

    26. Fikri Prahutomo Adanto on

      Vote for A, looks innocent

      Dragon A - B has creepy eyes, and the body of A is much better.

      B is cute, i like it more than A

      Antoine Chauvet on

      I like more the dragon's B head, especially the ears, for the body I think A is slightly better.

      How about A with B's ears?

    31. Bradley Harris on

      A! B has creepy eyes..

      I like the eyes of A but the ears on B.
