January Update - Austin Wintory Orchestral Livestream Friday, Fasolt Vignette and More!
Happy new year! Exactly one year ago today we launched this Kickstarter for Banner Saga 3. And what a year it's been! 2018 is going to be a banner year* and the game is coming together in all the ways we hoped. Thanks to everyone for your supportive messages on social media, forums and discord chat. We appreciate how amazing you've all been as we work hard to bring you the final chapter in this epic journey. This is the year you will be playing Banner Saga 3 - and if all goes well and the suns align, you'll be playing it sooner than we'd hoped!**
*Please forgive this pun we literally couldn't resist.
**See the Fasolt trailer for news on release!
First Banner Saga 3 Vignette - Fasolt
Now that we're on the road to launch, we've shared the first of a series of video vignettes highlighting influential characters in Banner Saga 3. Varl loyalist, Fasolt is the first warrior we review. What are his true motives and will he turn his back on civilization in their greatest time of need in revenge for wrongs past?
You can view the trailer here - make sure you subscribe to YouTube to be notified when future vignettes and trailers are released! If you read the fine print (description of the YouTube video) you'll see we're taking aim at a summer 2018 release of Saga 3!
Austin Wintory Orchestra Livestream This Friday!
This week, the incredible and talented composer Austin Wintory is heading to London to record the score for Banner Saga 3. He plans to stream live at different times during the day on Friday and we'll share as many of these streams as we can on social media.
Please Watch our Twitter feed for more news about this, and in the meantime Austin has graciously set the Official Soundtracks for Banner Saga 1 and 2 to "no minimum" payment option on Bandcamp. Grab your own copies here on Bandcamp now!
Stoic Welcomes New Team Members - Andy, David
Over the past several weeks, we’ve welcomed a couple new and talented people to our Seattle office - Andy, Program Manager and David, Engine Programmer. These new team members will help us get Banner Saga 3 across the finish line with efficiency and style! Please join us in welcoming both gentlemen and say hello to them in our Discord chat.
Survey Results - Character Poll
We asked in our last update which characters you'd miss if you didn't get to chat with them in Banner Saga 3. We had a great response from everyone and now present the top (and bottom) 3 choices you made:
Thanks to everyone who took the poll; the information we gathered will play a direct part in aspects of the game's design. Although after you see her in action in Saga3, you may want to rethink having a chat with Zefr! 😉
Until the next update - stay awesome and watch our social media channels for all our news!
