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!
