The BETA is coming for Chapter 1!

8 likes

If you were one of the original BETA backers from about 20 years ago, we will be sending that out soon.  We currently only have the Android and PC build done, but others will come soon once we get the bugs out of those builds.

Currently, we are trying to decide whether or not we should send out the BETAS without the voices and cut scenes in it.  The full game-play is there, but we think it lacks without the cut scenes and voices.

However, we want to start getting bug reports and seeing how long it takes other people to actually beat the chapter.  As of right now, it takes someone who knows how to do everything about 30 minutes to beat it, but I'm sure it'll double or triple for someone who actually plays the game for the first time.

We've also added a new hint system to the game for those players who get stuck and frustrated.  The hint system will let the player find out what to do next, but they will have to wait for about 5 minutes to get the next clue.

Also, please follow us on instagram, facebook , and twitter.  I've been trying to use social media more to get the word out about the game and could use some follows to increase these numbers.  You can also see a bunch of sneak peaks at these different outlets.

I'm currently hosting a contest on our Facebook page here:  https://www.facebook.com/Reincarny/posts/1021354574556229 - You could win a demon fetus!

Till next time,

Reincarnation: TROAE Steam Greenlight!

7 likes

Hey everyone. 

Big news
.  We just launched the Steam Greenlight and could use the backers help to get it Greenlite.  We launched the project yesterday, and we are about a quarter of the way to the top 100%.  I'm not really sure what that means in terms of Steam, but it seems good right?  I haven't dealt much with them in the past, so this will be a learning experience for me as well.

Please help us get up there to bring this project on step closer to finally becoming a reality.

Linux people:  Don't be alarmed the game specs aren't up yet for you.  We are currently looking into that.

In other news:

I'll be in Houston, TX promoting the game and my art at http://www.comicpalooza.com/.  If you are in the area and are going to the con, please stop by the booth and say hi.  You can also yell at me for how long TROAE is taking but then I'll just be sad all weekend.

Also, a fellow artist has a kickstarter that is about to end for her doll creation.  You can back the project here if you are interested:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/331251583/skitzo-the-1920s-killer-bear-plush-toy-project

You gotta see this!

Nothing brings me more joy than finally seeing this project come together.  It's been a long road, but we are finally seeing this game become the great project it was meant to be!

Hey guys and gals,

We just started a development blog over at Wordpress for TROAE.  Y'all be able to see a lot of the stuff happening behind the scenes there.

Also, check out this project.  It's by a local developer and seems like a very interesting project.

First update of 2015

11 likes

Let's start with a happy 2015, happy presidents day (for you US backers), and a happy Mardi Gras.

I haven't wanted to post an update until I had a video of the game being played on my tablet.  As you can see below, that's the game being played on my Samsung Tab.  And, it looks (the video doesn't do it justice) amazing!

As you can see from the video below, we finally have a working prototype!  It's been a long time, and I apologize for that.  However, I've seen other projects make way more money and still not be finished with their games, but I'm no going to harp about that in this update.  This is all about production running smooth again.

We decided to create our own engine for the game so that later chapters and/or story arches could be made with ease.  

I've set up a Steam Greenlight page for the game, but we are waiting till the completion of this chapter before we release that. 

***SPOILER WARNING***
Some of the gameplay is out of place, because this is the test kit.  Y'all notice that the saved game is all 6's to show it's still in test mode.  Fun fact:  it's hard to try to record with my phone and play at the same time.  Y'all notice I miss some of the buttons...  Don't judge me!

By the way... That's not the official icon of TROAE. It's just a place holder for now.

Also, the comic book is starting to come together as well.  I've been writing, inking and coloring everything over the past several weeks.  It's my first real comic so it's taking a bit of time to get into the rhythm of how a comic book is suppose to be laid out.

I've posted a page below!  Vile isn't on this page, but it is about Reincarnation.  Also, the words may change once I have a finished copy of he whole book.  I'll be asking everyone who backed the project their thoughts on it and getting feed back from y'all.

 Thank you all for being backers!
