Official Update # 15

Hello Everyone!

Apologies on taking a whole month off from updating. We have been very busy and time slipped away from us.

I want to start off tonight informing you all about our Pixel artist. You all should know that the first pixel artist that we started out with has left the team. We have no idea as to why he suddenly vanished, and we will continue to look into it. We have, however, found a new artist and he is even more skilled than the last. We brought him on the team just a few days before our last update. Unfortunately, due to some personal issues, he has unable to complete much work over this last month. Now things are better for him and he has just now started back on a schedule! These sort of problems happen to almost all Indie developed games, so we can recover from it. This dilemma lead to us taking so long on our update this week though you should all know that this will not effect the schedule of EoE at all as all other areas of the game are actually decently ahead of schedule!

 Music:

Our composers are almost done with our soundtrack! They are currently all collaborating on writing the main theme for EoE which will boast some pretty stylish sounds. As you may have noticed, we stopped posting new songs in our updates lately. That is because we don't want to spoil anymore of this awesome soundtrack! We will be sure to post the main theme as soon as it's all nice and polished.

Writing:

As we have said before, we are beyond satisfied with how our story is progressing. We are approaching some of the more intensive and story driven scenes right now, and our vision is be captured perfectly. We really can't wait till you can all experience it!

We have also either written in all of the backer characters or have already planned out their inclusions. We must say that we were very impressed with your imagination and creativity with these characters!

Here is a little snippet of the character Johnny by backer Donovan:

Johnny is a clever and witty detective whom takes himself way to seriously. He was made to be a sort of comic relief character. Johnny finds himself on a quest to return a Queen's missing tiara that takes him all across the World of Rivera. Players bump into Johnny multiple times during his quest which always lead to humorous conversations and the consistent accusation that one particular party member is the thief he is looking for and his incessant desire to woo one of the female party members. Interactions with Johnny will be a treat to the player and were personally written by Donovan to ensure that his character's vision would be realized!

We will have many more Backer character snippets in the future. Also, if for some reason you have yet to submit your backer character, please send the to us ASAP at echoesofeternea@gmail.com. 

Twitter:


EoEGames is now on twitter! Follow us @EoEGames. We haven't posted much yet, but would love to hear from you! In the future, our twitter page will be used to give out small doses of info in between updates and we will be sure to keep you fed with various screenshots.

Thank you all for your patience with us during this last month. We promise to not take as long for the next update.

      Yeah add me on the list of people who'd rather see delays than a rushed version with unfinished features. Same with the updates, I prefer once a month (or maybe twice) than you guys wasting too much time updating all the time, even if I do like reading updates for EoE.

      Good to hear that you're still going despite the setback of losing an artist. I hope the new artist does a great job!

      Hey glad to hear from you guys again, hope the new artist won't cause too much problem, I probably don't speak for everyone here, but don't be afraid to scale back if you feel like too much work is pilling up and you'd end up shipping with a bunch of half finished feature (if you want to, read up on sword of stars 2 development and actual shipping).

      Keep up the good work.

      @Remi: Oops! That was so long ago we completely forgot! This description of him is more in line of his actual writing and implementation in game instead of just a simple description. Thanks for being so attentive!

      Isn't that the same backer character that you shared info about before?
