The New Trailer Is Up! AND, a new Work In Progress Gameplay Video! And...

I've reworked quite a bit of the Kickstarter text, and laid it out more logically.  I mentioned that in the last update, I believe.  Well, this time, you're in for a treat:  you can watch Jumpman Forever in action!

Some things to know:  this is just Work in Progress stuff.  WIP videos are a mixed bag, because they show something cool, but often show the uncool stuff.  For instance, the uncool stuff:

  • The Animation Sequencer looses it sometimes.  Watch the left run -vs- the right run, for in stance.
  • The music and sound is mostly the original Jumpman game music.  Trust me, that's not staying - as much charm as there is to it, it needs some tweaks and updates for Jumpman Forever.  (Though, it's sort of exciting to listen to it fire up when testing a new level :-)  The new sound effects have a bit more "punch" to them.
  • The trip and fall distance isn't consistent.
  • Sometimes you can hear the jump sound effect double-trigger.

The video is now on the main page of the Kickstarter (and I'll be updating it from time to time).  Also on the front page is a new trailer:  it's NOTHING like the old one :-)  Short, sweet, to the point, and shows the new game.  Tell me what you think :-)

And, one more thing:  to increase the chances of success, I've added another person to my team, who's helping out with marketing and contacting people.  Every little bit helps - I need to finish two more projects I've got on my desk at the moment, so that after the Kickstarter is funded, I can devote all my energy to getting Jumpman Forever completed!
