Past prototype videos
YouTube and the prototype:
Do not be alarmed at the lack of videos on YouTube channel. As we move forward in development we are removing all "prototype" videos from this page and will update it in the near future with work on the final project.
The prototype video and the videos along with it existed to display ideas and have been referred to as "moving concept art". The idea behind ROAM and the vision of the game posted on Kickstarter was and is the most important.
The legal matter we addressed in the last update is very close to being resolved and has in no way damaged the future of ROAM. All of the Kickstarter raised money has been used in the creation of ROAM and ROAM alone. Funds were never used at all in the relation to the legal matter.
A decision was made to remove a member of the team. It wasn't an easy decision but it had to be made for ROAM's sake. All of the previous work from that member has been removed from the game. This is just a minor speed bump in the development of ROAM. As far as the replacement of work goes: it has been already taken care of. We have moved forward from this matter and it is behind us. Any other complications regarding it are residual, but we still will not let it affect ROAM's development.
In the future some time I hope to be able to shed more light on the situation. Even as an "informative lesson" or a "behind the scenes" as to what happens in indie game development aside from the actual development of the game. For now I suggest watching Indie Game: The Movie. It's on Netflix!
We are still confident in releasing a playable beta by January, 2014
I know you all want to see game play footage, but I am just asking that you bear with us. We are living and breathing ROAM in every aspect of our lives. I fall asleep dreaming about ROAM. As we get closer to January you will start to hear from us a lot more.
