Halfway, Reddit AMA & Dev Log #3!
First of all, some great news! With three weeks to go The Mandate has reached the halfway mark as pledges on Kickstarter have surpassed $250.000! Pledges via PayPal are on top of this, and will help count towards stretch goals.
We will be holding an AMA (Ask Me Anything) this Wednesday 13th November at 11 PM CET, 5 PM EST, 2 PM PST on Reddit. In attendance will be Ole (exec producer & lead designer), Garret (art director) & Michael (community manager). We will announce on both our Twitter, Facebook and Kickstarter pages the exact link (as well as the AMA link mentioned above).
Today we present Dev Log #3 where Vegard, our tech director, talks about various things we are doing to ensure we produce art assets and animations as efficiently as possible. There is a small easter egg... well, actually a handful of them, which hint at topics for upcoming trailers that the team is working on. Apologies for the bad quality at the start of the video but Vegard broke his primary webcam and had to use a backup!
On the topic of trailers, we’re working with someone simply… magical. On Wednesday, some of our devs will be heading into London to direct the voiceover for our next trailer. If all goes well, our famous actor may be the voice of Suvarov for the final release!
For good measure we also decided to throw in a couple of work in progress screenshots. You already know what a captain uniform looks like so who could this chap be? Specifically for the hat, you can compare against the guy in the middle in this reference. Also, a few early screenshots from the inside of a capital ship.
