Hi everyone. It’s been some time since the last progress report, and I suppose you already started wondering if there will be any. Well, I wanted to keep you in suspense for some time. Nah, I’m kidding .
The reason I prolonged the news report publication is that I wanted to make a bigger surprise. Unfortunately, some people failed to make their part, and this will not be such surprise, as planed. Though it still may be a kind of.
Without getting into much words, I show you this table, that speaks for itself quite much:
In case it does not, here is some explanation. The table above comes from our team-only management system, that helps us keep track of the Prequel content and progress of various parts. The table itself gathers progress of the world areas (grids and scenes) for the demo. As you can see, almost all the grids and some scenes are already done. The only thing that raises worries are the three not started grids at the bottom. These are the things that failed. Some time ago two guys (brothers) offered us help with the map design. We saw their previous work and was amazed of how talented they were. So amazed that we outsourced the three maps so they would make it. Unfortunately, after one very promising image of half-made work we lost contact with them. At the moment it’s been over two months since we got the last e-mail from them, and we have no idea what is going on. I think we will wait for them till about a month before the demo release, maybe they will get back to us. If not, we will make the maps by ourselves.
So, almost all Grids are done! Now we will focus on the Scenes and scripting. This is much harder task though, and I do not dare to estimate how long it could take
Thanks you are still with us!
