Concept Art, Geoffio, And a Linux version?
First off let me thank each of you again for your support thus far. This weekend is the start of our push.
As you may have noticed on the project page, we have posted the first piece of concept art from Geoffio for Heroes of Forevia. The particular scene depicted is the final realm leading up to the final boss, just a taste of it anyway.
As for screenshots, we will be posting some very shortly. We want to make sure we make the parts we screenshot more presentable than what we have running in our alpha, and we are just about there. The new popflame.com website will be up tomorrow as well.
Will there be a Linux port? Well, if we can reach $20,000, there absolutely will be. We've been developing the game on Windows and Mac, but we all have Linux installed on a personal device of some flavor (Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.). We think a Linux port would be awesome, but it would also be a little more costly, because let's face it, the game development tools on linux are lacking. That doesn't mean we can't do it, just that it will be more costly in terms of time and resources.
That means, if you guys can help us reach double our target goal, we will support:
Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS Tablets and Android Tablets.
When we first thought up Heroes of Forevia, one of our primary goals was to make a game that would look good, yet something that could be ran on a wide range of hardward. A delicate mix of beauty and performance, not unlike Pat.
That's a wrap on this update. You will see another on before the end of the weekend. Thank you all again for showing your support so far, and we look forward to the fun times to come.
