Looking Back, Progress Report, Looking Forward

Posted by Steve Hoogendyk (Creator)

Hi Backers

This update is going to be very short and sweet!

Looking Back:

Tomorrow I turn 40 years old. I can’t help but look back and think that 20 years ago I was playing games like Myst with my dad. It’s at that point that I really discovered my passion for creating worlds to explore and love of storytelling. 10 years ago I was working at Cyan Worlds, and had the opportunity to work with many of the original creators of Myst and Riven

It really is a dream come true that Geeta Games has been given this incredible opportunity to work on our very own adventure game. It's a wonderful gift, made in part possible from the generous backing you guys provided during our kickstarter campaign almost 1 year ago.

This past month again great progress has been made, and we are thrilled to announce that character animation and all the background paintings have been completed!!! This will now allow more of the team to focus on putting all the different parts of the game together.


Progress Report:

Below is our progress report as to how much of “Lilly Looking Through” is completed.

Game/Puzzle Design - 100%

Music - 98%

Art/Concept Design/Environment Paintings - 100%

Animation - 100% Sound Effects/Foley - 77%

Programming/Wiring Game Logic - 65%


Looking Forward:

We still have a good amount of work to do, as we continue adding all the sound, music, compositing, particles, effects, and interactivity. However, it’s a great feeling to know that the character animation and environments are completed!

Best regards,  

Steve, Jessica, and the rest of the Geeta Games Team!
