The "No Update" Update

36 likes

Dear Backers, 

Absolutely nothing exciting to report, but I'd like to avoid knicker twisting so here's an update without any meaningful update. Yay! 

Troy's stop-motion animation is finished. Kian is also finished with sound/music on this animation. That's good progress.

Ed's 3D-computer animation was near finished at last update. Kian's still waiting on final picture so he can wrap up sound/music. Ed's and his team have been super busy on other projects (required for survival), so progress on this front is slow. I will continue to kick and prod Ed as I am able. 

Progress on the book is moving along steadily, but has been limited by my own busy-ness on launching a new game here at Spicy Horse (also required for survival). And I will continue to kick and prod myself as I am able. In order to get the book done faster I am thinking of outsourcing the work - so if any of you know any Adobe Illustrator experts that might be interested... drop me a line. 

Once we have all the production assets (video and book) finished, manufacture at a factory shouldn't take long (a few weeks), at which point we can mail everything out (another few weeks for delivery). 

Now that I'm mostly out of the woods on launch of the new game, I can devote more time to book production. And I'm hoping Ed can wrap up his part soon as well. 

Apologies for the delays, and thanks in advance for your understanding. 

From Shanghai,

      If EA can no longer grasp at you with their hand of death, do you think it's possible we could see Alice in another game?

      I'm absolutely fine with delays, i'd rather you spent time making it perfect than rush it.

      Hi American McGee and team. I just want to let you know that, it's all fine! Knowing that EA no longer have the rights to Alice, no need to rush. I personally would patiently wait beyond the promised delivery date if it's what it takes to get what's worth it. No need to rush perfection, and survive well! :)

      this sure is a lengthy "no update".

      hmmm... if you mean "chains" taking up your time, sadly... tried it, had some issues, and didn't go on.

      but... back to topic... Alice... good update! till your next "no update". :)

      May seem like nothing to report but it's a very exciting process for us spectators :)

      That's not no-update, that's a pic of Alice! Any chance of a nice close-up? Ooh I would love to have a figurine like that joining me...
