UNREAL ENGINE 4 TECH DEMO; IGN TOP STORY; 5 DAYS LEFT!
Hello Amazing supporters!,
Today was a great day for Project Awakened, thanks to all of you that are helping make it happen!
IGN Cover Story: Unreal Engine 4 Tech Demo for Project Awakened Released
It is not every day you get the top banner spot of one of the biggest gaming publications in the world, but today IGN honored Project Awakened with a great article about the game, and our UE4 Tech Demo video revealed today.
UE4 Tech Demo Vid
After 3 weeks of talking about how we are going to use the best next gen engine the world has ever known to make your dream character a reality, today we released a little taste of what that will look like. The vid has three sections all build and vid captured in UE4 -
1) The opening section is story 'tone piece' for the world of Project Awakened.
2) The middle section shows some examples of the amazing level of detail you will see on your dream character as they wield your favorite unique blend of special abilities.
3) The final section displays just a small fraction of the highly detailed outfit and equipment pieces you will be able to put on your character, your modded enemies and bosses, and anything else you can think of! Imagine a vast list of pieces like this for you to not only choose from, but eventually tint with your choice of colors and tweak them to your liking!
Just 5 Full Days Left...Go Tell The World!
You have all been truly amazing supporters. Project Awakened is not a sequel to nostalgic IP, it is not styled on games from the past that are known successful formulas, it is not safe and easy - it is something new and different, a whole new way of looking at games, a vision we want you to own with us that could transforming action gaming...and you have been brave enough and trusting enough to try to make it happen with us. But, we have a ways to go and time is getting short.
We want to dedicate a team to this game, get you a closed beta in Q1 of next year so you can help us shape and balance the game, get to open beta in Q3 of next year so we can bring in even more people to see what we have built together...but we can only do that if we get funded. Otherwise we have to keep making Project Awakened in our spare time between projects, and it's been years of that already.
So please, think of all the characters you have ever wanted to be, all the modds you've ever dreaming of making or playing, and think about what that's worth for you as a gamer, and who you could tell about it!
Thank you all so much...more news tomorrow
