March Update: CODERS!!!

It's hard to find good help!  As of now, I'm another coder down on this project, and my coder for the mini I was going to release is also MIA.

I'm starting to think the whole Reincarnation series is cursed!

There is hope over the horizon though.  My good friend and business partner since 2005 said he's in for starting on the code again in July.  I know he's reliable too!  Which means...  I need to continue to work on the artwork for this massive game.  I've gotten Chapter 1 up to 15 Scenes and may need to add one more depending on if I add another puzzle or not.  I'm also laying the game out in a wireframe format.  This will make it easier to see just which things direct where.  I originally had the whole thing written out, but who likes to read all that?  It could be a bit confusing.

Yesterday, I hand drew out the map.  Today, I'm putting it into the computer to easily see the flow of it and be able to move things around a lot easier.  I'll post a pixelated picture here (don't want to give away any spoilers)

 Till next month,
Chris


Update #51

Hey Everyone! 

 It’s been a long time since I posted an update, and I didn't want anyone to think I had disappeared or died. 

So, let me get everyone up to date: 

 The game had a large pause over 2013 it seems. I kept getting coders and then they would just disappear over and over again. I actually got to play a little of Chapter 1, but without notice, that coder went away as well. I’m currently trying out one more coder I found and hopefully that works out. If not, my original coder and partner will be back in full swing by July. 

 A big pause to the Reincarnation project was our first game we released under the new company. The idea of Terrible Teeth was to get a free game out to the masses before we released a pay-to-play game. It was a great learning experience for us as well. We’ve never had the chance to release something in a mobile format such as TT. We learned the do’s and don’ts of releasing a game this way which will be a big help when we go to release TROAE to Android and iTune. If you haven’t already, download Terrible Teeth for your mobile device for free here: 

Google: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vilemedia.terribleteeth&hl=en

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id776445995 

Demo: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/630763 

 Let me know if ya have the android one and need the promo code for the Vile hat in the game. Sorry iTunes people. ITunes doesn't allow promo codes :/ 

 Ok. Back to TROAE… 

 With all this extra time, I've had time to think about the project more and decided to break the game up into 4 full games. (Don’t worry. If you backed it, you still get all 4 games.) Chapter 1 seemed to be missing a lot, and I’m currently revisiting it to add more puzzles and scenes so that it can stand alone. I’m at about 14 scenes in the first chapter, and added several more puzzles. I’ve also integrated a map so that navigation around the level will be easier than just walking from one scene to another. When I was playing the demo version, it was pretty annoying to have to talk from point A to point Z.

 Also, here are the 2 backers who have backed enough to be part of the game.  I'll probably be making slight changes to them, but this is the basic models.

PS - Did comic con again this year and look who showed up!

 

Sorry for the massive delays, but it will pay out in the end.
-Chris

This marks the 5th year since I started the Reincarnation series.  It's been a long 5 years!  I've released 13 games since A Demon's Day Out and I hope to continue to do this forever.  That being said, I have a mini I plan on giving to you guys this month.  You will be the first people to see this game.  Sort of like my 500+ BETA testers.  Everyone who helped back this project will get a copy of this mini.  I drew everything within a week and it is now being coded.  It's only one room, but those are sometimes more challenging to figure out than having multi rooms.  That being said, I'll probably have another Update within his same month.

Secondly, my Android game Terrible Teeth is doing well.  We just did an update for it to make it more enjoyable to people.  You can download and play it for free here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vilemedia.terribleteeth
-I'm also giving everyone who backed this the free promo code for the Vile hat in the the game.  If you are interested in getting the code, please private message me on here.

-Also, the game is coming to iOS as soon as we get the port done.

Speaking of ports, it's slowing down production on TROAE because the engine we were using isn't sure if/when it'll be able to port to all devices which is making me rethink the engine.  I dunno.  It's so much easier just working back in the day in Flash lol.  There is a ton more that goes into this big featured game!  It's nuts!  

While you wait for the Reincarnation series to take off, please help out a friend make his point and click game.  It's from the talented Zeebarf who bought many free games to life.  He is releasing another game in his Reemus Series called The Ballads of Reemus 2.  You can help out here:  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1311956304/the-ballads-of-reemus-2-2d-point-and-click-adventu
