Arcane Snowman’s Create a Crew Member Contest

1 like

Hey Everyone. One of our beloved backers from the Crew Member Tier has decided to offer his Crew Member slot to the community for Valdis Story A.C. If you want to enter just download crew form HERE. Fill it out and email it to Entry deadline is beginning of next Wednesday. At that point we will select 3 finalist for you guys to vote on. It’s not required, but crew concepts themed around ‘Arcane Snowman’ would be an awesome way to honor his generosity.

 In other news, we’ve been working hard on the steam release of the game. All of the achievements are in and most of them have been tested to make sure they trigger properly. Getting the game to work on Steam required an update to the engine we use, so we are going though and trying to find anything that me have broken because of the update. We also have a bunch of fixes, balances, and additions coming in the next version. One of which is a new Hypnotist NPC that will allow you to forget and retrain your skills (for a price).

Quick Update

 Some of you may have noticed the most recent update to the game is crashing on start up when playing through the Desura client. Luckily we got the Desura stand alone version up so if you already redeemed your code you should be able to get the stand alone now at . We will get the client version fixed as soon as we can.

 Yesterday we received heart breaking news that a family member, that was not only close to us but very close to this project, had passed away. Our response to questions, feedback, and technical support will be spotty for a while. I would ask that you send any inquiries to so I can keep things organized during this time.

 The game is also available on gamers gate now. We were unable to announce it at the time it launched. If you want a Gamers Gate key please send a request message to us through kick start (I believe i have to send those keys one at a time). As of right now I am starting the process of patching the Gamers Gate version of the game to the newest update.

Dev Update and OST

Hey everyone,

 Just a quick update to let you know where we're at. Wyatt's play through is complete, but Reina still needs animations for one more weapon and some dialogue to be finished. Calum is working hard replacing the place holder sound FX. Gilda will also need her base animations for Idle/walking/running to be completed, she is not playable yet but she still appears in game as an NPC. 

All backers who pledged 30$ and up will be receiving an email with their download code for the Valdis Story: Abyssal City Soundtrack very soon. (Will try to get through all the emails on Thursday )
