Update #8

Flocking to Seattle!

2 comments

Hello gracious backers,

Some of you might be wondering what we've been up to over the last few weeks.  Well, we've been buried in development, because we will be unveiling the project at PAX Prime in Seattle on August 31st!

Kickstarter's staff was nice enough to invite us to be part of a Kickstarter-backed projects exhibition, so we'll be sharing our current build right next to some other cool gaming projects you might have seen on the site in the last few months.  

Stay tuned, because our next update will let you know how we fare.  None of us have ever been to a convention like PAX before, so it's going to be an awesome learning experience and a great way to continue to build support for the project. 

We'll share some of the latest assets soon and also plan to make some videos and take some photos of our adventures in the northwest.

      Have a great time in Seattle! Should be a fabulous chance to network. And did I miss it or is the survey still in the works?

    The Origami Goose Kit! If you love birds as much as us, then you will have a blast learning how to fold your own origami goose from custom paper printed to look like a bird from the game! Your kit will include a dozen sheets of printed origami paper and directions on how to assemble the bird. We will email you a PDF of the design, so you can print and fold to your heart's content.

    Endless Migration Zoetrope! As artists and animators making a game about time travel, we thought it would be completely appropriate to offer our backers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to revisit a piece of moving image history: the zoetrope! A zoetrope is an early animation device dating back to 180 AD but popularized in the 18th century. The circular device is comprised of a spinning cylinder punched with slits that the observer gazes through to see an illusion of motion inside. Ours will be approximately 2 feet in diameter and stand about 8 inches high. We're going to construct a complete one for you with inserts of all of our bird animation cycles (and some other secret animations as well). Some assembly will be required for the sake of shipping it to you. (INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PLEASE ADD $40).

    Boss Designer: The post-apocalyptic environment is special, because it implements some of the specific tropes of space shooter games, as the flock navigates a future wasteland, where man battles for survival against machine. Become part of the design team and help craft the Boss for this level!! You'll be able to choose its abilities, behaviors, its look, and most importantly, how it can be circumvented by the flock. Part of one of the later levels, this boss encounter will be one of the most epic moments in the game and you can make it yours! Also includes Box Set 2.

    We wanted a challenge when it came to designing our higher reward tiers, because if you are going to contribute such a huge amount to the game, you deserve a unique and wonderful reward. So, we'll construct your very own continuous Endless Migration 2 Emaki-mono! "What is an Emaki-mono" you ask? The Emaki-mono dates back to 11th century Japan, and is a long picture scroll that generally depicts an epic journey across a long single sheet of paper. Jon, our lead artist, studied them in college and is totally excited to design one for you that depicts the continuous journey of the flock from the beginning of the game all the way to the epic finale! Yes it will be meters and meters in length. (INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PLEASE ADD $40).

    Become a Level Designer! For weighing in at our highest tier, you will get to imagine and help design a complete environment in Endless Migration 2. It could be anything (within a certain degree of reason) in the past, present, or future! You'll imagine and design everything from what's happening on the ground to what kind of obstacles the flock faces. Then, we'll draw, animate, and code everything you dream up! Furthermore, you will receive Executive Producer credit in the game. We retain ultimate veto power, but will work with you to make it happen, and will thoughtfully craft your dream level as long as it fits within a loose set of guidelines. You also get everything else (except being cast as Poseidon or Apollo). (INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PLEASE ADD $75).
