Hello Backers,

It’s time for another quick update! 

______________________________________________________________
Linux Update

We would like to start by thanking our Linux Backers for their patience as we've been working on getting a Linux Build of Lilly Looking Through ready in time for Christmas.

Our current goal is to have a playable version of the Linux Build ready by next week. All Linux Backers will be receiving an email directly from us with detailed instructions on how to download and play the game.

Note: If you're a Linux Backer and haven’t received an email from us by December 18th feel free to message us directly through Kickstarter.

Adventure X 

AdventureX is an annual event held in London for adventure and story based game developers. This past weekend some of our friends attended the event, and discovered 3 really promising adventure projects that also happen to be Kickstarters.

If you're interested you can check out each project at the links below. All 3 of Kickstarter campaigns will be ending very soon!

Update #31

Released! KOTAKU and Linux

Hi Backers,

Lilly Looking Through has been released!

It still seems a bit surreal that we've finally released our first indie adventure game.

Live Stream Event
We had a really great time at the Live Stream event. We want to thank everyone who had the chance to join us during our live streaming launch party as well as Building the Game Podcast for hosting the event.

Just in case you missed the event you can still watch it at the link below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzIXGzc-kNs 

KOTAKU
We were also surprised to end up in a very entertaining KOTAKU video. (WARNING: Spoiler Alert!!! If you haven't played through the game you may NOT want to watch this video.)

We appreciate all the messages and comments we've received as we continue to grow and learn from this amazing experience. It’s been a great gift to hear all the feedback from our Backers, and very encouraging to know that people are excited to see what we're going to do next!

Linux

We are currently focused on getting a Linux build of Lilly Looking Through out to our Linux Backers as soon as possible! Right now it's looking like we won’t be able to take advantage of hardware acceleration like we did on the Windows and Mac version. This means that our first Linux build will be running initially in an optimized windowed mode to give the best performance, as we figure out the best way to deliver Lilly on Linux.

Note:For development we’ve been using Adobe Flash and Stage 3D (which currently isn't supported on Linux). As a result, the Linux version will be running in “software only” mode.

Adventure Gaming Fans 

We discovered a charming gallery of adventure gaming caricatures throughout adventure gaming history all illustrated by the talented Jón Kristinsson.

We were really humbled to find out that Jón was inspired to draw an image of Lilly and her brother Row as well. You can view some of his beautiful work at the link below:

Speaking of Adventure Gaming

There's an adventure gaming Kickstarter going on right now called Bolt Riley - A Reggae Adventure Game. It looks like a really fun story with beautiful artwork and a cool "inspiration" gameplay mechanic. It only has 5 more days until the campaign ends. So if you get a moment definitely check it out.

Until next time that’s it for this update!

Best,
Steve, Jessica and the rest of the Geeta Games Team.
