Update #7

Animated demo

Today, we have prepared a brief animated demo for you to give you an even better impression of the art we are using in the game. It is playing directly in the Unity3D web player, which is very cool, because the Web Player plug-in will allow us to share in-game material easily with you in the future also.

Sadly, Kickstarter does not support the web player directly on this page, so, please click on the image below to get to the official Thorvalla website where the demo is currently hosted.

Once again, this is one of the huts in the game, only this time complete with animations and lighting. You can zoom in and out of the object using the mouse wheel — click on the image first to activate the Unity player — for a better look. You will also notice that the light gradually changes from day to night and back again. Enjoy!

In case the image link won't work, please click here to take a look at the animated demo.

      Maybe my previous post was misleading.
      I meant to say: update the hut demo by adding some appropriate music.

      I LIKE IT! Nice art style. House reminds me of Evil Dead.

      Unity player is nothing to be afraid of any more than flash player or any other web based media player.

      Not going to download Unity player software just to see the picture stuff. Especially without knowing the program, etc. Not happy. :(
      do like the hut picture though.

      It looks really good! :)

      Guido, if you can, you should put some music appropriate for a village/city in the game.
      It can really help bringing people into the world of Thorvalla.

      And __please__ update the pitch video with all the new info you have given!!!
      For those who dismissed the initial pitch, they aren't going to look again.
      (remember to update the video thumbnail with "new" or "v2")

      Guido... PERFECT use of the Unity web player. I'm surprised more of the Unity based KS games haven't thought of this before as a way to get some of the art assets out there.

      I can so imagine a single flute melody in the calm outside with the snow falling. Then knocking on the door, a welcoming hunter beckons you inside to warm yourself by the fireplace and exchange some stories of old. Ah, good old times.

      I love this!

      The updates have been great so far! If the word starts spreading around and more news/game sites pick this up, hopefully a lot more people will start joining in! I really want to see this succeed.
