Update time!

So, it’s been a bit quiet since our last update. Fortunately, it only means we’ve been quite busy behind the scenes. Actually, perhaps it’s best if you are the judge of that. In the past two months, the following has been done on the project.

  • All environments have been completed, three times over (daytime, nighttime and a special “everybody is going to die” version).
  • All animations have been redone (thanks to Carin, who helped us out during the summer!)
  • A lot of models and textures have been updated. The new perspective sometimes showed their weak spots. We took care of that.
  • We’ve built an entirely new mission / animation system that helps us tell the story exactly how we want to.
  • Tons more, but since it’s good to finally have some material to write about, we’ll just put it in the next updates ;-)

We’ve also updated the website in the meantime and we hope you like the new look! As you can see we have more than enough material to keep writing updates. We’ll try to release information a bit more frequent from now on (cough). For now, we leave you with two completely unrelated bits of information. First; the mugshots we’re using for the dialogue in the game. Second, a shot of Jildert refining the new combat system.

    It really took way too long since the last blog post. I was almost thinking that you all stopped working on it because of the lack of money. The mobile version for the site is not that good. It’s pretty bad actually. Pc version does look better though. It’s good to know that you are going to write more blog post. I really like the story of Pier. I hope we get more screenshots too, I like to see how the game is going to look like.

    Hey ironfangz, good to see you’re still around :) What’s so bad about our mobile theme? Because we’re using a responsive theme which will auto adjust for smaller screens. We’ll make sure to put up some screens pretty soon.

    *blink blink* wut?… Sorry, I seem to have nodded off… It must’ve been the eerie silence. Anyway, glad to see things are apparently still rolling.

    Pictures don’t fit in the screen. Even when I click on them to pop them up, they’re still not fitting. And I don’t know if the tabs on the home page has to be spacing that far from each other, but I find it unconvenient.

    On a regular 22″ screen with 1680*1050 resolution the text is kinda huge too :) I preferred the old layout, but it’s not that bad. At least the forum hasn’t changed that much.

    The character designs above look really great though. I this style each character will be easily recognizable. Which helps for us blonde people :P
