Once In a Lifetime (or not)
You find yourself in the aftermath. You may ask yourself what am I doing here. You waited all these years and Paradigm is finally in your hands. Except its not actually in your hands, it's on your computer. A series of ones and zeros which are 40% low brow humour and part of those ones and zeros when put in sequence make a huge butt. Wowers, isn't technology neato, I help fund this thing. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I was glad I was a part of. (If you weren't glad that's OK too, I'm glad you're an honest person who speaks their mind, NOICE)
READ IF YOU HAVE NOT GOT YOUR KEY
So before I get into anything, if you're a backer, and you can't find your copy of Paradigm in your inbox, and you've started planning my murder, please, CHECK YOUR SPAM AND INBOX for a humble bundle link. For some reason a bunch of the humble bundle emails went into spam, I probably got at least 60 emails about it. If you really cant find it, please email me and I'll investigate it further and help you ASAP :D
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU
Alright it's been 3 weeks since release of Paradigm, what a crazy ride it's been. I have to re-iterate how much I appreciate you all. With the help of you and others, I LITERALLY achieved a childhood dream, I'm extremely privileged I got do that. Not only that, I got to do it all on my own terms, and make the game exactly how I wanted with the exception of my technical expertise. How many people get to say that? That's insane, I'm thankful for all of you everyday for it. GIVE YOURSELF ALL a firm and assertive pat on your back. Then pretend its me doing that. Maybe a hug if you're feeling fancy. If you go further than that, please submit it to jacobfanfiction.com *Disclaimer this does not exist and please don't do that.
IT'S NOT OVER
"WAAAAAA I thought it was over, I thought you would abandon me with these twenty cats, you mean you're staying?" Yeah I am sticking around, there is still a few things I need to wrap up for you all.
ART BOOK: I'm starting to plan it out now and organise all the art. I'm hiring my friend to help me with the design of the whole thing to help get it out faster. Neato.
SOUNDTRACK: It's out! Check your humble bundle and it will be associated with Paradigm if you got that pledge. If you didn't, you can get it from these convenient links.
It's also on Spotify!
SUPER MUTANT FAN PACK
I will be sending out a Survey ASAP to get which posters you want, in the mean time, here is a selection which I will give you, (may be subject to change) If you have something in particular that you think would be a good poster, I'll consider it adding it to the selection!
Still deciding what would be cool.
There were pretty minimal bugs in the game, only 2/3 ones which can cause the game bigger problems. Hopefully will get them fixed and tested ASAP.
After that is all done, the Paradigm Kickstarter will be officially wrapped up, super crazy to think about it after this long time. However don't think that is the complete end, this is the only beginning. I have many plans for the future, and I hope you guys can come along for the ride :D
I want to give a special shout out to
During the last couple of weeks, this guy play tested the shit out of Paradigm. He is the reason the game is not a buggy mess. On release there were like only 2-3 'major bugs' which is insane considering. He is also a voice actor and actor (He voiced the dimmer switch Prodigy Child), please go follow him on his social media if you can.
Big thanks to all the other Play testers too, you are the unsung heroes of game dev. (All their pretty names are in the credits)
Here is a quick behind the scenes gif of when I was literally buried alive for the live action sequence.
Here is me playing around with the Floppy disk addition, trying to figure out how it would look like and how much it would cost. At the moment it is costed at around ~$1500 for shipping and making it. This will probably end up being a charity thing haha.
I also made a wallpaper which was requested a few times.
That's about it for this update, again, thank you all, till the next update!
