Official Update #28

Hello Everyone,

It’s been another long month at Echoes of Eternea. I wish we could supply another video to show some of the bigger progress, but unfortunately this has been a month of the kinds of improvements that don’t come off as visually impressive. Still, we promised we would continue to update you whether we had much to show or not, and we’re committed to keeping to that. 

We have had at least three solid weeks of positive forward motion and two that were less productive. We finally switched over to a movement system that will allow characters to travel pixel by pixel, rather than confine them to full tile steps moving in a grid. We feel this will better fit the feeling of the late 16-bit era style, but of course this means we’ve had to go back into many old maps and make fine adjustments (corrections to boundaries so that players don’t slip between walls) which has been time consuming. 
 
 Art is nearly completed, but we don’t want to say it will be done soon because every time that we've done that we've discovered additional art that we need. 
Since we began EoE there have been many changes, elements that have been added and removed as necessary. Our overworld has been completely overhauled and many locations were removed from the game or condensed to allow us to better focus on the important places. Here is a taste of our new world map. 
If any backers have any specific questions about something they would like to know more about: please ask in the comments and we can try to address them in our next update. We’re hoping to have a date for the demo by then. 

Thanks,

EoE Games

      Seems this is going on, posted by rippchord on reddit, 5 days ago:

      "Yes. I was good friends with him. Yes. He up and ditched everyone. He doesn't pick up his phone, respond to emails, steam messages, anything. He even blocked me on facebook. :/ Sorry, I really want to post something here, but I haven't been able to produce anything I'm really proud of, so I've just been working on it. "

      Thanks to Kotaku making a recent article reg. succesful funded kickstarter games, it turns out Echoes of Eternia is still alive. Though very slow progress.

      Kotaku linked to a reddit page reg. the current status on the game.

      The latest update was posted 16 days ago.

      hopefully this info will please some backers finally being able to get any sort of information on this kickstarter again.

      https://www.facebook.com/EchoesOfEternea someone please go and sign in and tell this guy to make news any would be helpful.

      I have tried to contact them but it seems a guy that was working on the project only heard from the main guy when he did the designing an rpg so nothing has been heard of since article or from the main dev.

      I can only hope there's still some way to contact this guy.

      Okay, previous in times updates had been slow, but they came. Now we're almost 9 months away from the previous update..
      Now this is turning into a joke. Stop the radio silence and give us some details about what the heck is going on here.

      Just dropping this here from Kickstarters terms-of-use Section 4.
      When a project is successfully funded, the creator must complete the project and fulfill each reward.

      So start telling us what is going on!

      Nope. I'm not even sure if it ever was in production.

    10. Casey Peterson on

      This is still in production, right?

      I have seen an update that looks more like a ps1 game and final fantasy battle type game play.

      Has this game been redone ?. and when will the next update be ?.

    14. Dave, Shadowrunner on

      Can I have a refund now?

    15. Daniel on

      Main Web site is DOWN, Domain Ran out 11th November its now on wordpress FIX it please

    17. Frank Talbot on

      Thanks for the update! I'm not sure if it's been answered yet but I was wondering if your engine would allow easy porting to other platforms? With the new art style, it feels like the game could be even better suited to platforms like the 3DS, the VITA or iOS/Android tablets. The project page mentions OUYA but I guess the idea has been scratched?

      Thanks again!

      Thanks for the update, guys! I'd love to hear more about the battle system, and if there have been any changes to it since that demo video.
