Hello again friends, and happy fall (for those of us experiencing fall, that is.) Ryan and Jon here once more throwing words at your face and hoping some stick!
We've both been pretty busy this past month both on and off of City Quest. In the past month, we've both been back to some more traditional work (hooray for paying bills, right?) that has relegated City Quest back to part time work. Fortunately, Ryan's contract work is coming to a head soon, so he'll be back on this fulltime until it's done!
Jon had a bit longer on this as fulltime work, so the art is still ahead of where it needs to be, so we're still looking good on that account!
By the way, we also got something fun this month. Look! LOOK!
Well, I could talk a whole bunch before this, but I'm much too excited not to just show you.
That's right! That low-quality phone picture is of none other than our backer T-Shirts, in the flesh... rrm... cloth. We ordered them late last month, and they arrived at the beginning of this month, it's really quite exciting! The posters should be on their way soon as well! Boxes will, of course, have to wait until the game is ready to ship!
As for shipping on the physical products, we'll be waiting until everything is printed and ready to go (we'd rather not ship each type of reward individually for those of you who've got multiple). We'll keep you up to date about how that's coming along!
As usual, why tell you about the things we've been doing when we can show you them?! Here are some more fun things presented entirely without context!
(Ok, a little context on this one... that's actually one of our Kickstarter NPCs. Awesome, right?)
And lastly, I can't let you go without a little taste of death, so take this.
We've got a few more projects we think you might enjoy this month!
The Ballads of Remus 2 - I know lots of you folks have been on this for awhile, but for anyone that isn't on board over there, there's about 5 days left on this project as of this writing and they're at 60% of their goal! Jay Ziebarth was running another project at the same time as City Quest that unfortunately failed to fund (A Simple Favor), and we'd love to see this succeed. Go check it out!
Bolt Riley - A Reggae Adventure - This project looks awesome. A Jamaican adventure game. There is pretty much no way that could go wrong. This project by Adventure Mob doesn't launch until October 25, but you should definitely keep your eye on it!
Once again, we'd just like to express our gratitude to you all for your support and patience! We're moving into the homestretch now, and while there's still a ton of work to do, the end is somewhere at the edge of our vision now! I'm sure you're all excited to play, and we're just as excited to put this thing in your hands!
Once more, if you haven't already, consider tossing us a 'Yes' vote on Greenlight and possibly sharing with your friends. With the vast swath of games Steam had Greenlit lately, there's a definite possibility that we might be able to show our wretched faces on steam yet!
Until next time, friends!
