I'm sorry we had a bug that drove the whole team crazy XD I've just posted the update please take a look Wingi :D
@gagame Hi, I've been wondering as Gunnar, how are thing going ? :)
You told us about an update on 25th, and so far, nothing, unless I'm mistaken.
I'm eager to hear from you :)
Hi Gunnar, thank you so much for your continuous support :D the project is going quite well and we will post an update on 25th Oct. so you guys can see what have been done :D
Hi guys. Are there any updates you can share?
Hello Michael, thank you so much for your support :D we're working like animals to get the game done on time (with lot of fun making Hercules a better game thanks so much for your funds) :D we've overcome many milestones and problems and I will post an update on Friday (for backers only cos it has some spoilers XD) so you guys can have some ideas what's going on :D
Any chance for another update?
Your comment makes our day Umar, we really appreciate your inspiring compliments :D I'm so glad you like the new Titan and our artists will try their best to keep it up and we have more models to come yayyy! XD
Hay guys, I just saw the 3D model for the Lava Titan and all I can say is "WOW" just Wow that looks incredible. There is so much detail and shine on it, it just looks amazing. Congratulations to whomever created that model and designed it. They did a fantastic job.
Yayyyy, thanks for the great support Tony and Harry XD
gratz! keep it up guys
Congratulations dudes :D
Thank you for the kind words Bjoern, Edition Smile, Timmy and handsome Carlos XD I'm so happy that I'm kinda speechless now, I really don't know what to say, thank you guys so much for the wonderful support, Kickstarter is really an awesome place, you know when you're needing a hand and hundred to thousand hands show up to help you, it's just amazing! :D
Congratulations! I'm late but I 've been busy u.u, now is time to wait for you guys, do your best;), hopefully a 2nd part o a new project, I'll be here :S let me know ^-^
Congratulations! I can't wait to play with it! :-)
...aaand it's a wrap! Congrats on a successful campaign! :)
Thanks for your time and feedback Yuichi :D I'll forward your comment to the team to improve the prototype :D
(1) Your PC specs are high, that's weird you have unsmooth movement, we have 30-50fps with a low specs PC, please try playing with lower resolution and graphic settings :D. The camera angle changes so you can see things and hints, we'll find some way to improve it :D
(2) This is easy to fix, actually Hercules has a falling damage value but we set it to 0 so it's easier for you to test the game. We'll set it up :D
(3) We're hearing many feedback that's the puzzle is still too hard to solve we'll add some more hints :p
Thanks again for your continued support, Yuichi, I deeply appreciate that, you're just awesome!
I am sorry that English sentences are unnatural,but the Japanese have written.
I played 0.1.5. I have some discontent.
(1) It was easy to screensick.That is unsmooth movement by GTX1050ti i7 3770t 16GB mem.And,I feel the camera angle is moving too frequently.
(2) I think it is weird that there is no damage from falling.
(3) I could not clear the prototype. Some more hints make this game playing good,more.
I hope your success.
Hi Vajad, the game is planned to have a digital release on PC (via Steam), and if lucky, on both PS4 and Xbox One, depending on our budget.
Hi Kevenkun, thanks for backing us, there is no word to describe how appreciate we are. We'll try our best not to let you down ^^
what platform will the pc release be on?
do you plan a switch version?
just backed this and gosh i'm excited, hack and slash games always been my favorites (not like i am a huge fan of god of war or something ;) ) and so far it looks great! good work guys and wish you the best (also i'm happy to support some fellow canadians)
Yes, Harry, there're a few cases you can switch to Shea to solve special puzzles, cos Shea has magic, she can do things which Hercules can't. :D
In the game, can I play as Shea sometimes? That'd be great! Like in The Lost Vikings (SNES), you can switch to other characters to solve puzzles.
(so is ours) :D
Hi Joshua, thank you for backing us :D
We're kind of waiting for this question, we had a meeting about this topic, and we decided we'll follow the way Disney chose their character names in their famous Hercules movie, for a character, the (Greek or Roman) name is known by more people will be used, so it's easier for most people to follow the story (might upset some people though :D ), Hercules is more popular used than Heracles, Zeus is more well known than Jupiter, and so on :D Disney's Hercules is a mix between Greek and Roman mythology, so is our :D
I just got the early bird, so here's to you!
I also noticed something in the trailer, when the book was talking about the gods disappearing. Mars and Hades were mentioned in the same sentence, which was odd to me considering Mars is Roman and Hades is Greek. Same thing with Hera and Hercules, since Hera is Greek while Hercules is Roman. Don't know if you are going with Greek or Roman mythology with this, although they are almost the same thing with some differences or is it simply a mistake of mixing mythologies?
Hi Zeon :D
@Zeon: There is no word to describe how appreciate we are. Thanks for your support :D
Hi all just backed and wanted to say Hi :)
Umar: thank you so much for upgrading your pledge Umar, that's so awesome of you! We're excitingly working so freaking hard XD, if nothing changes, the demo will be available next week :D
Michael: thanks for the suggestion Michael :D I'll ask the composer about that :D we have more music to come XD
Congratulations one reaching your goal. I switched my pledge to 17$, can't wait to see more of this game.
Any chance for the OST being available as an add on.
Yes, I feel like celebrating New Year's again, thanks for the back Michael XD and thank you all, you all make this moment happen, it's gold! :D
$3.00 away from success. This is awesome.
Hi John, thanks for backing us :D
It's really really hard to say no to a backer, John, especially you, our first Hera's Warrior, but the true is we don't have plan for PS Vita in the near future.
This game would be perfect on the PS vita. Any way we can make that happen??
Thanks for backing us Editions Smile :D
We make this game cos we really really want to, it's more than passion, it's like an obsession, since we discussed the game idea: what if in a game, we can shift to the past, do something there and go back to present to see the "butterfly effect" right away, that would be awesome! So we just make it, little by little, still today. :D
We know really well how to develop a game, but to be honest we don't know much about anything else like marketing, prices and dating girls XD We think the lower the price, the more people play our game and enjoy it, everyone will be happy :D
A lower price than when it's on Steam is also our way to show our appreciation, to thank you guys, ones who believe and support us in the development.
This game looks awesome and the price is... ridiculously low ! o_0
I'm definitively in and I wish you good luck. :-)
You're too kind! Thanks for twitting us Tony :D you don't know how much I appreciate that!
keep up the good work guys, I have your back!
Thank you so much Andrew, Umar, for your comments and your time! I'm so happy reading them, cos that means you guys really care about the project.
Yes we need comments like these, cos the game idea is making something really new about Hercules, new time streams, new stories, new girls! :D So we also want to make a new, different look for Hercules, a toned fit warrior, instead of bulked muscular one, but we're not sure how far can the difference go, so we will listen to you all and then make any change needed.
Umar, we don't feel offended at all :D we need guys like you to tell us their point of view so we can make adjustments, please keep helping us refine the game we need you!
Thank you for your support Andrew, your comment is inspiring and motivating, I think Kickstarter won't last without guys like you >--(^_^)--< (this is a hug from Ryoga - artist) :))
So I'm in at the early bird level so far, but may bump this up later!
Firstly, this looks like a fun game. Sure, it looks like it needs some polish but that's exactly why you need backers, right?!
As for the design of Hercules... that's kind of what drew me in to be honest! You always see him portrayed as Umar said... and that's fine, but the character design for this version is really cool, and fits in with the romanticism that I'm feeling from the main characters so far. The beasts are evil and ugly, while the heroes are good and beautiful!
Your artist is amazing by the way, and I'd love to see more art from them. The portrait of Hercules as the main campaign image is just amazing... so I may end up bumping up my pledge to get the digital art book eventually!
I hope this does well, and you're able to improve the game a whole lot! Maybe bring it to other platforms even! :-D
Thank you for the nice email. It means a lot for me to hear back from a content creator on Kickstarter. Now about Hercules The Untold Stories, the gameplay looks like a lot of fun and I am anticipating more gameplay in the future. However ( I hope I do not upset or offend your art designer) the art style for Hercules seems a little different from what I am use to. For instance, look at Hercules in other interpretations from games such as Smite or God of War 3 or even look at some of Hercules movies or tv shows. When I see this Hercules I think of a college student or a calvin klein male model look, instead of powerful Greek demigod. During your development I would encourage you to look at some other representations of Hercules as references to make a more Greek or Roman if you prefer looking Hercules. Again I apologize if I offended your development team I just wanted to share that information. Keep up the good work, I hope to see smooth development in the future, and best of luck. Cant wait to see this game in action.
Sure Umar, what do you think? :D
Hello. I was wondering if you want to hear feedback based on character design. ? the prototype looks good.
The Ring of Time is made from Chronos's hair, after wearing it, with one punch to the ground Hercules will be brought back 10 years in the past, later, he can also shift to the future. Cos years gone by, things will change, there're many puzzles base on that :D For example,you put sand inside an oyster in the past then swap back to present to get pearl :D
cool, looks great! can you tell me more about the time swap?
Dern: Yay, thank you so much Dern XD guys guys, we have the first backer!!! XD
first backer - good luck with the kickstarter!
