Comics, a new track and few questions
Hi everybody! First of all, we'd like to thank you for your faith in us. It's thanks to your pledges that we've already managed to collect 25% of the goal! Yes, there's still a lot of work to be done, but I'd like to take time out now to thank all of you.
Our first update was a bit boring. Thanks to Aleonymous for the criticism! I need to make up for that oversight. Above you can see a couple of pages from the comic book that we are creating especially for our backers. At this link you can view them at normal resolution. In it we tell the story of how one of the protagonists of the game, Thorn Brenin, and his brother-in-law, Brann Vichti, became sworn enemies.
Important changes to the reward tiers
I want to thank you for your trust, support and help with this project! To celebrate our first small victory, we decided to add more prizes to the reward tiers:
- Everybody who chooses ALBIUS WATCHMAN ($35) and ALBIUS BURGOMASTER ($45) will also receive the comic book and digital art book.
- Our OST (now already 50 minutes of music) by Adam Skorupa, the composer of The Witcher will be received by everybody who chooses ALBIUS WATCHMAN ($35) and ALBIUS BURGOMASTER ($45).
- Everybody selecting the EARLY BIRD — MYTHS OF TERMINUM tier ($65) will receive a CD copy of the music.
New battle track!
Many of you noted in the comments that you really like our music, which is why I'd like to share our new track with you. It's called "Battle of the Heroes" and Adam only finished it the other day. This is the first time it's being published on the web. The track was fully recorded with live instruments, and we'd love to hear from you in the Comments section what emotions you experienced when you listened to it! Your feedback will help us to understand how closely the music conveys the frame of mind we're trying to achieve.
Help us to spread the word via Thunderclap!
I would also like to ask you to support us on Thunderclap. With the help of Thunderclap we'll be able to tell the world about our game and reach our goal more quickly so that we can create more quests, music and animation for Ash of Gods!
Tell me what you'd like to know more about!
Please post all your questions in the Comments section. Do you want to know more about the game world, the music recordings or the character animation? Should we tell you more about what we're busy with right now, or should we finally finish the 4th instalment of our Developer Diary? If you haven't read the first three instalments, you can find them here:
- Developer Diary #1: In search of a style
- Developer Diary #2: The Build, Plot, Music
- Developer Diary #3: World Map and UI
Please share your ideas with us!
P.S. That's me on the photograph above, busy writing this update. If you're the owner of a lavish beard (the ladies may use fakes ones), send us links of yourselves and we'll make a cool beard collage!
Thank you for being an active and supporting community. We are in the process of building a FAQ list, so I have a question for you:
What has been confusing for you on our project page and what needs to be explained better?
Please let us know in the comments below.
Instead of a P.S.
If you're looking for another project to back, we've stumbled across StarFlint: the Blackhole Prophecy, and it looks really nice.
It's pretty different from what we're doing but looks really promising.
We'd love to see that project come through, so if you're interested in Sci-Fi comical adventures, definitely head out there and give them a hand!
