Update #9

Video Update #7: Windows Map Editor

Greetings Kickstarters!

We have updated our main video! Check it out, let us know what you think, and share it to your friends!

In the video update, Chris Taylor and Designer Brian Sturm shows off our stand alone map editor, and how we create Wildman levels.

We also are featuring two pieces of concept art... jungles and dinosaurs!

      Just the mention of "spiral staircase" reminds me of dungeon siege. I'm excited to try out the tools. I think that it would be awesome to release both sets of tools so that enthusiasts,such as myself have the opportunity to play with the compiler.

      Also, I like the style of the video. The fact that it wasn't heavily edited gave us the ability to feel like we are there with the team. Fantastic stuff.

      I just backed this project. The concept looks awesome but, I'm backing because I simply want more of Chris and GPG....especially in the form of Kings and Castles. I saw the interview with Matt.... yes it's just a game but, games are really an art...I truly believe this and even at our darkest times throughout history there was always art. Chris and GPG....you're my Picaso. lol Seriously....keep the faith. If I can I'll review my pledge with more before the end.

      Please disregard my comment regarding "hopefully there will be an offline one as well" because it being offline defeats the entire purpose of using the webtech. Sorry about that Chris I was watching the videos out of order as a catch up.

      I just like having my stuff offline. :-) Anyway....forget me....on with your vision I love it ! :-)

      Love the new pledge video, you've condensed lots of info on the gameplay, and still kept the flow and the action going.
      I'm bumping Felix Olschewski's most excellent video. Together with the new pledge video, this might turn some heads, and generate more pledges...

      Damn FANTASTIC UPDATE ! Love the editor !!! For me GPG made the BEST RTS'. I'm putting Total Annihilation back on my machine !!

      Great online tool for the editor, hopefully there will also be an offline one as well. Fantastic !!!

      No reason to be sweating - you did good :) I didn't even notice you were nervous until the end when you implied so.

      The new intro video is good. You don't take yourselves too seriously, but it's also professional, finally explains what the game actually is and does, and your goals with it. It also gives a stronger feeling that you are able to pull it off, and seeing the team is a huge plus.

      Looking forward to more art from Kevin!

      Great video. Does a wonderful job of summing up what the game is about. I'm making sure to tell people to watch the new video at places I've posted about this in the past.

      @Nicholas Michael Purchase
      Hi Nick. Good point, but I think the difference is that before we paid less for a cut-down/dumbed down experience, and now we might pay (a lot) more, but hopefully get an experience we were actually looking for. I don't know about you, but I've shelled out a few hundred on SC, and on ED, so time will tell if that hope pays off. Still, it's a choice I guess, if we love an IP that much, we'll support them.

      The crazy thing is that we get mad at publishers overcharging us, now we're happy to pay MORE money for the same product! Man I hope this game gets funded.

      GPG, you are bigger than WildMan. Don't be afraid to think big and don't let your modesty kill GPG.
      You made AAA games before and that is where your strength lies.

      I think you should do a kick-start for an awesome RTS ! The market begs for RTS. EA with free to play ? Come-on, this is your chance.

      You get your funding by the __number__ of backers, not by the amount of each pledge. And more people know you to make tha best RTS. Shields up !

      The new video is way better. I've been in doubt about this whole thing, but I got a little more exited about it now :) The modding tools aren't that interesting to me at this time, but I'm a fan of Steam Workshop, so if that's something you might consider, that would cool.

      Creator Bill Schneider on February 1, 2013

      Wow, the new video is really good!

      The main thing is the explanation of the warzones, especially with the art and sketches, to show what you are actually imagining it being like. This really clears up the unknown for me, I think this concept stuff really helps. Thanks a lot :D

      The new front page video is vastly superior to the original one. Hopefully that will help people who haven't seen high level concepts before get a better idea of the flow of the gameplay.

      As for compile tools - yes! I think most people who'd want to mess around with them probably have all the service packs etc already installed, along with Eclipse, Visual Studio, or whatever other programming compiler they already use. Anything we can do to help flesh out the game is appreciated. Besides, I'd love to know I've done my part to help out a team that's brought me so much joy over the years.

      I'm hoping a big push at the end gets you funded. If not I hope you retool and come back. Several projects have failed their first time out only to make it a second or even third time.
      Love whats happening, looking forward to more.
