Dear friends of Days of Dawn.

Finally some news from Kalea! Our wonderful creature artist Caro just finished working on the concept artwork of a new creature: a floating being obviousely influenced by the magical powers recently felt on Kalea. Where might it come from? What is its relation to magic?

She's already working on new creatures, here's some first sketches. A floating one-eyed Rhombor and a giant-pawed digger.

New team members

Also great news regarding the team: We got two new team-members!

Hannah Müller is having an internship at bumblebee. and will be supporting us in terms of game- and quest-design. She's already knee-deep in the game and can't wait to leave her marks on Days of Dawn.

Bastian Raschegewski is a new full-time employed coder in our team. In the past he's been working on games like Legends of Pegasus (Novacore/Kalypso) and has already given Days of Dawn a direct connection from Articy:Draft, our storywriting tool, into Unity. Thanks to him, all content (dialogues, quests...) written in Articy can be brought into Days of Dawn as simple as pressing a button. 

Lady in red

As we love to point out beautiful games here on kickstarter, here's another one, Red Goddess from Yanim Studios. It looks great and definitely hasn't gotten the attention it deserves, so please consider taking a look on https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yanimstudio/red-goddess

Expect our next update on march 26 with some great news.

Thank you and all the best,
Tassilo

Dear friends of Days of Dawn.

As I told you in our last update, GhostControl Inc. is now ready and awaiting it's release. Having a game for sale will definitely support the development of Days of Dawn. One of the best places to sell games is Steam, of course.

Now we need your help to reach that platform and get the most of GhostControl Inc.: Please vote for GhostControl Inc. on Steam Greenlight via the following link to help us get access to this great market:

All the best,
