Update #5: Character Sprite Opinion & New Rewards
Hello guys! Good day to y'all~
For the past days, we've got a few feedback regarding our character sprites being inconsistent with the rest of our game's art style. Good point. We realized that our sprites didn't look exactly what we originally intended to make, which should take inspiration from Zeronis and sakimichan's art styles. Hence, we worked hard the past days to remake Becca's sprite, and we really, really need your opinion:
The picture above shows Becca's old sprite versus the new one. As you can see, the old one is faced front while the new one is angled sideways. Furthermore, the old one is more anime-ish, while the new one is stylized. What do you think, gang? Is the new one better? Or should we continue using the old one? Either way, both will still be animated in-game. We're also working hard to improve the characters' animation, but let's leave that for another update. It's gonna be legen--wait for it--dary! So stay tuned! :D
As for rewards, we decided to add another tier! For $10, we will give you a hand-made, physical copy of the "HELP ME" letter from the game (free shipping)! To all our backers who pledged on our physical tiers, you will receive this for free! ❤ Hehe, have fun pranking friends! XD
Lastly, we lowered down our ✪ EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ✪ from $10,000 to $5,000.
Before we go, we just want to give recognition to the following, magnificent projects!
PANDEMONIUM: fantasy survival horror & miniatures by The Game Forger. If you're a tabletop gamer who likes horror, then this gem is perfect for you! Pandemonium is a board game with dynamic gameplay, easy-to-learn rules and different combinations & game modes. The game will have 13 characters, 8 creatures (42 miniatures), 216 items & tokens, 44 Events, 13 map scenarios, plus a manual and an adventures book. Looks cool, right? Head over to their Kickstarter page before it ends! They only have 4 days left as of writing.
Ah, Song of Horror by Protocol Games. This game is closer to our very own The Letter, so if you like our game, then you should definitely check out theirs too! Song of Horror is a story-based, third person survival horror game with 16 playable characters! Wow! Aside from publishing a Windows, Mac and Linux build, they're also releasing the game on Playstation 4 and Xbox One! To know more about Song of Horror, as well as to see their sample 3D art (they even have amazing gifs!), please head over to their KS campaign!
Last, and certainly not the least, is Blacksea Odyssey by Team Blacksea Odyssey. It's a 2D top-down shoot ’em up with RPG and rogue-like elements. If you love RPG games and 2D shooter games like the nostalgic Space Impact, then you shouldn't miss Blacksea Odyssey. After all, the game is a great blend of RPG and 2D shooter elements, featuring different weapons and ways to destroy enemies. Their campaign is relatively new, but it seems that it already garnered quite some attention, a testament to the game's awesomeness. Don't forget to check them out if you like it!
Thanks as always everyone! See you on our next update! Stay awesome! :D
