Apologizing again for the late Kickstarter

I know some of you have been eagerly awaiting to help us get this project rolling, but there are just so many things to organize *_* so we don’t prematurely launch.

  • Our new estimated launch date is: August 20th for the latest. 

Could be earlier, we’ve had some stumbling blocks with the programming and waiting on a good day to take some video, but such is life. 

What’s important which I hope you guys appreciate is we’re keeping you updated. During and even after Kickstarter one of our priorities will be frequent updates. It’s been what… 7 months and we have almost 300 posts in updates? Even if they are not game related sometimes, I appreciate just knowing a studio is active. I mean I’m sure we’re followed projects and the teams are just really bad at updating. 

Special thanks to Eric Stover for keeping up with the twitter, facebook, and deviantart pages.

just wondering, is that the final model for the mail girl? cos the hat looks like a part of her hair instead since its all black

The first screen shot of Nikki admittedly the hat is a bit dark. The actual model has it at a dark grey, but we can tweak that. That being said, the models are not are ‘final final models’ granted we have a lot of models and things to make on a tight/non-existent budget at this point, however art assets can always be replaced and edited later :) Hopefully if we can Kickstart this project I’ll be having close friends give us something of a quality control check on all of our things. Thank you for the comment.

Some real talk about race in video games.

Now, when I’m talking about the race issues in games it’s not just a ‘black’ issue. It’s a complexion issue and a minority issue. We already know there is a lack of these characters in games, I’m not going to harp on that.

There are other people around the world that are not African with dark skin with complexes about how dark their skin is. Because of the under representation of these characters, ‘we’ (I say we because if you didn’t know I’m black) in games.
 
We’re not afraid or ashamed to make dark skin characters, like actual dark skin not cinnamon brown, or orange tan. Just putting that out there thank you.

Takeo Portrait. 

Current progress report.

Trying to find a good day that both Matt and I are off of work so we can shoot some video it’s been really rainy and we want shoot outside by our little garden. Although it’s been so hot that our plants have all been looking a little sad. Currently we’ve been working on illustrations for the Kickstarter to make it look more shiny, setting up rewards, our budget pie chart, and programming in one more feature.

More about art
We’re trying to go for a simple look because:

1. We’re going to/ already have have over 100 characters to make portraits of, so they need to be done quickly.

2. Each character needs a new different expressions so then times that by 4

3. To closely match the style of the game, which is bright and cartoony. Think sort of like Professor Layton characters but brighter in colors.

4. We don’t have nearly enough budget to hire an artist. my designer work and I are working for free, so YAY more money to go towards actually making the game. Plus we work really fast, I can do like 5 of these in a day between my part-time hours. 

Anyways thank you for sticking around more updates soon, to keep you posted.

I've lost all interest in your game, you haven't updated in so long I doubt this will ever get finished.

I’m sorry you’ve lost interest. Like I’ve been saying, we’ve been working on our Kickstarter campaign, and we’re going to do a big reveal with all of our new stuff in our video so we don’t ruin the surprise. We’re kindly asking everyone to sit tight for a few more weeks so we can deliver the most professional presentation instead of rushing it out pre-maturely.

Keep in mind, if anyone wants to personally send us a message (not anon messages) to see how we’re doing?, how’s the kickstarter? how’s progress? what can we expect to see in the Kickstarter? or have any questions, we will be more than happy to respond and chat with you :). Thank you very much for your patience.
