Nov. 1st update on Oct. 31st: It's a Halloween miracle!

11 likes

Hey everyone! So tomorrow I will be at the GMX convention in Nashville TN. I'll be traveling there early and will be tied up the whole entire day, so I thought I'd get this Kickstarter update out for you today. Happy Halloween and thanks for understanding! :) By the way, as a side note, Scott Murphy and our Senior developer Tyler Drinkard have also decided to join me at the convention! If you're anywhere nearby and can come meet up with us, we'd love to meet you!

WHATS BEEN HAPPENING ON THE PROJECT RECENTLY?

This past week has been an insanely productive time. As previously mentioned, a major part of what has been taking so long is all the "under the hood" stuff that needed to happen on SpaceVenture. Now that we have a great system for adding new elements to the game and making them do our bidding (evil Halloween laugh), we are finally moving at the pace we feel we should be moving.

Scott, Mark and I traveled to South Carolina and closed ourselves up in Tyler's house for four straight days. We decided us getting together would be a good chance for us to make 100% sure we all got a grasp on the newly updated event system and scripts. This also gave us a chance to talk about a portion of the game that happens towards the end that has always felt incomplete as far as story and puzzles go. I'm happy to report, we got that fleshed out! I posted a small diary post about it here if you'd like to read! (Don't forget that if you don't have an SVRewards account, email pcj@andromedanpost.com )

We were averaging 12-16 hour work days, but did manage to occasionally sneak away to feed our faces! :)

We also had a chance to record some behind the scenes footage while we were all together as well! And for the first time in 22 years, the Two Guys put some of there Andromedon costume on. 

MEET MIKE PENNY, OUR HEAD ANIMATOR

We thought it would be cool to show case some of the SpaceVenture team in some upcoming videos. Here is a short video put together of our Head Animator, Mike Penny! Mike also does some of the modeling/rigging for us.

      Great update guys - well done! I enjoyed the video & that's a cool picture of the Andromedons together. ;-) Also don't burn out on us dudes... I want this game and many others!
      OK I'm off to enjoy the podcast.

    6. Creator Tom Champion on October 31, 2013

      Thanks for the great update,
      I found that the Mike Penny video didn't work on my iPad properly, it showed as a long black vertical bar with the video half way down the page.

      Mike Penny: Love the sexy IK/FK work, buddy ;-)

    8. Creator Nick Dubois on October 31, 2013

      Good update with different things to chew on.

    10. Creator Ol'Curmudgeon on October 31, 2013

      The video with Mike Penny is fantastic! Look at those awesome 3D models & animation! w00t! (Must contain anticipation).

      A certain detractor must be eating a large slice of humble pie right now.

      @Two Guys: I'm happy at your progress. A part of me died when Sierra went belly up because I knew that meant the last Space Quest. Please know from a mid-level backer I'd like you to take your time and get this right. Also, don't give yourselves heart attacks in the process because I expect sequels ;).

    12. Creator Roger H ☜☆☞ Mighty No. 1337 ☜☆☞ on October 31, 2013

      Love the photo of the 2 guys :D

    13. Creator Serena Nelson - Hero of the AGRM on October 31, 2013

      Some great reading material right there. Love the shout-out to Bolt Riley. (BACK BOLT! NOW!)

      And I loved the second episode of the SQH podcast, and not just because I'm in it. It's hilarious and informative and just plain 41 minutes of awesome!

      That's got to be the sexiest behind-the-scenes video I've seen.
