Development Update 22 - Closed Pre-Alpha

January 9, 2014 - sythe

So, what's new? We've fixed more bugs, added more content, and released a limited pre-alpha build to a few of our testers.

It was naturally met with a positive response, praising the execution, as well as the concept (and we also gained valuable feedback). :) Determination renewed, we continue to work on the tutorial system.
Below, some more concept art.

A video at 30 FPS for 120 seconds is 3600 frames/"pictures". If a picture is worth a thousand words, than this blog post is already over 360 000 words long. I'd better stop now.

News this week has prompted me to write this blog post.

Unity and Linux
We've begun a swift transition to Unity, following the addition of new team members and the announcement of Linux support in Unity 4.  The capabilities of Unity3D far exceed those of Ducttape, our previous engine, or of any other open-source engines.

 This will enable us to produce a significantly more polished product for numerous platforms.

Development Update - 015

Well, looks like this development update is just a little bit late. Nobody noticed, right?

Anyhow, I’ve got some exciting news. We’ve decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter as soon as we get gameplay footage or more substantial game art. As well, I’ve recruited five new members to the team; two new programmers, an artist, a composer, and a pair of designers. These new contributors will help us continue to progress towards a playable demo of Facade. As well, I’ve begun seeking new channels to recruit talented designers, developers, and producers.

Meanwhile, Tbiz has fully finalized the narrative, and has begun integrating the puzzle gameplay in the core storyline.
EternalWind has completed scripting support for our world editor, and Sidtheone has begun work on the base of the game, enabling scenes to be loaded automatically, which should soon lead to a playable preview release.
As well, ChocoboMaster has finally completed the improved ADAM robot, with the correct fingers, seen below.
