The next update should hit before the middle of September. I'll let you guys know a definite date once I have one :) -Chris Pope
...update on an update?
Do you have a release date for the update containing the relase date? ;P
Yep as we get closer to voice acting time, we'll be announcing it
Great Update Guys and super EXCITED to start to see a release date begin to emerge!! Chris will there be an update on when you may see the team start to think about voice actors? Thanks again for another stellar inside look!
@Sebastien keep an eye on the upcoming updates for a release date.
when is the game coming out?
SpaceVenture Update: An update on the Cluck Y'egger game sequence, the Holotube, as well as some Taco Nova tastiness!
Come on guys! We are too anxious! :)
Gonna need to hold off on the SpaceVenture update one more day. It's coming though, promise!
Love you guys! Can't wait!
SpaceVenture update is planned to hit tomorrow night! :)
@KSimms just remember though, Scott didn't do all the writing or puzzle work himself. Mark did a lot of that too. It was a group effort between the two, as it will be for SpaceVenture as well. Mark sure designed a lot of the puzzles will Scott's help, and Scott did a lot of the writing with Mark's help. ;) -Chris Pope
Mark Crowe has sure delivered high quality art and animation. Easy to see why Sierra hired him at such a young age and why he has continued to do very well since then. The man is supremely talented. Of course, the big question mark is still Scott Murphy's writing and game design for SpaceVenture, as it has been awhile since we've seen published work from Murphy. Looking forward to more samples of that.
I'm so Giddy right now!
The quality of everything you have shown is very impressive, I'm glad you aren't just re-skinning an old game. Keep up the great work :-)
Hey everyone. Mark Crowe asked me to keep holding on the update for a few more art related things to be completed. It should hit by early next week.
@GuitarAnthony hopefully you will find the game well worth the wait. We are definitely working really hard for it to be high quality.
This was the second KS project I ever backed. As they say...'If I knew then what I know now'. My only bright side is at least I didn't back Star Citizen.
Is the game in a state that could be put on Steam Early Access? Or is there no game at all?
We are planning an update for July. There are a few things in the fire that are being wrapped up that are planned for the update. Once there is an ETA on the date for July, I'll post here. Thanks everyone! :)
@Jason the engine is complete. We do add occasional new features to it as needed. Programming is no longer an issue. It's all about artwork now. Good progress is being made week after week. :)
Three years later and nothing. No hint of voice work done and other than the teaser a year ago, no sign of new tracks from the game.
And let's not forget the "FAQ" posted by a "programmer" last month that claims the thing most holding up the game is "art and design", despite the engine still not being completed.
Don't know how they're expecting to push the game out this year as they say they intend to with so much left to do.
In case you've missed it. Lori and Corey Cole have their new Kickstarter running. Check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/transolargames/hero-u-adventure-role-playing-game/description
Can´t wait for the game! :)
Great work guys, sorry I ever doubted you!
@Trent, good to know. We're taking this game very seriously and want it to be a success out of the gates. :)
Thanks for that reply, Two Guys. Like I said, I still look forward to it. I do pay attention to the updates, but I'm still impatient. I'm rooting for this to be as incredible as the long dev time would imply.
I believe a lot of people are going to be surprised with how good this game is. Know that so many people are rooting for you guys!
Thank you for the update. I try not to look at them too closely though and no longer watch ANY of the videos, because I do not want to spoil too much of it for myself. I feel I already know too much!
All updates are still appreciated though. It's nice just knowing progress is being made. Cheers. FB
@Johnny we'll get them out when we feel like we have something worth showing for sure. :) A lot of our time is spent dealing with code. @Trent: We are moving as hard and fast as we possibly can. If you are confused on what has taken us so long, please take the time to read some of our previous updates that explain things. Not making excuses here, we know we've taken too long, but we are doing our absolute best, I promise.
I think this project has exposed one of the problems with the Kickstarter model of development. I really wanted this game to happen, but the eternal wait has soured that enthusiasm a lot. I still look forward to delivery, but it will likely be met with a "FINALLY" instead of an "OMG THIS IS AWESOME!!" Shame.
Great update...I expect them to be regular again....after all, are important to contain our anxiety... :P
People reading this need to check out the latest update. The art shown there looks fantastic.
Do I see a Five Nights at Freddy's reference?
May 6th SpaceVenture Update: Cluck Yegger, Andromedcon, Taco Nova, Veronica7, Scrapyard landing
Looking forward to this next update!! Can't wait guys!
We are still compiling everything we want to show off on the update. As of right now, we're shooting to release the update on Wednesday.
A this is one of the first projects i backed long ago and many newer project actually delivered i think I'm quite upset and quite right to be upset.
So WHEN IS THIS GAME TO BE RELEASED?
I also disagree with David. Last update was in February. This game has been in production for well over two years, and over 2 years past the estimated delivery date.Over 10,000 backers pledged to see this come to life, and it is still not alive. What is the current timeline?
Where is the new updade? I look forward to see what's new in the production.... :(
I disagree with David. More frequent updates is better. At least once every other month. When someone goes to a page and sees there hasn't been an update for many months, it just looks bad. But I do appreciate your recent updates and your comments here answering questions. Looking forward to the next update!
Looking forward to the next update :) Also, I appreciate the reduced amount of updates now compared to how it was going on in the beginning.... waaay too many :)
Anyways, keep up the good work!
@Cycho- "Cowards"? I like your spunk and moxie son, but is that sort of comment necessary? Ironically, a true coward would probably hide behind a comment just like that. I can just imagine you, with your big gulp, your ring dings, angrily devouring your 4th meal midnight snack. You mash down on those faded sticky keyboard keys with your plump donut glazed fingers pecking out your hate-filled accusation. The sweat beads on your overly developed brow and glistens in the soft glow of your mothers wood grained tube television, circa 1982. in the background the smug rantings of blanch and her fellow Golden Girls envelope the room. The audible laborings of your Cheeto ladened breath become louder and louder as your arrow curser moves closer and closer to the “Post comment” button! Your fat engorged index quivers with ecstasy as you WILL your grub-like phalange to once again force itself upon the back of your trusty roller ball Lenovo mouse, circa 1989. For a split second you think to yourself, This is it! Your supple sausage extremity heaves downward with a climaxing thrust! And suddenly… A click, rings out amongst the sounds of your mothers retching coughs and audience laughter. Just then you feel a euphoria cum over you as the release sends you backwards into your step fathers squeak groaning computer chair. head back, mouth open, you gargle and gasp for air clutching the arm rest your mothers cat destroyed. Your eyes roll back and shut as your body writhes with elation and shutters with shame.
I feel I’m not far off here.
Awesome! Thanks for the update on the update!
Can't see what you guys have been cooking up
We've got an update planned for early May. We've got a lot of new stuff done and are excited to show it off. :)
What about an honest update? Are you cowards too afraid to tell your backers the truth?
So... Two months have gone by without an update. Should we take the radio silence as alarming?
Thanks guys that was an interesting read :-)
