Released! KOTAKU and Linux
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:
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!
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!
Steve, Jessica and the rest of the Geeta Games Team.
