Hello Boomers,

So, I didn't have much I could say last month but, look what just dropped today! This is our official announcement trailer. Don't worry, there will be more to come but, this will give you a sense of how things look and feel. Let the countdown to Halloween begin!

We appreciate the pledge and the patience. Glad to hear it has been worth the wait. I'll be sure to pass that to the team later.

So here is what I know off the top of my head:
The game is a "free move" environment mostly using WASD and mouse as the default.
One of the stretch goals was to have a "classic" mode which would allow for a more point and click experience.

I will check with the team to see if the center mouse/scroll wheel or a right click can also be used to move forward instead of WASD.

I got a response on this. You can move forward using right-click which eliminates most of the need for keyboard. Keyboard will be necessary to exit the game and get back to the main menu.

It's been a crazy day for me today. I woke up and checked some of the stats on The 13th Doll website because I wanted to see if the trailer launch had made an impact. Obviously our numbers went up a bit, partially because of all of you! However, what I didn't expect was to see several other website referrals.

It turns out that despite us not having formally sent a press release, several gaming outlets picked up on the announcement trailer and started running with it! laugh crazy scared From there multiple other outlets including Eurogamer, several gaming sites in Spain, a site in France, and even a site in Japan picked up the story!! This is very exciting but, also meant having to jump into "social media" mode earlier than I had anticipated.

None the less, it has been an exciting day overall with more to come. It looks like the official countdown has begun!

Wow, that's pretty exciting. I loved both those games (7th Guest and 11th Hour).

So it's been a couple of weeks since we put out that trailer video. Since then we have been covered by at least 35 publications ranging from small to "big media" and have been running all over the place doing all sorts of stuff. Our lead developer Ryan did a demo of the game at a developers conference in Wisconsin over the weekend and that seemed to go pretty well overall.

There are some other potentially exciting things going on behind the scenes but, as nothing is confirmed, I can't share them yet. razz Sorry to tease but, that is the nature of the beast.

Another update!

Last weekend, Ryan brought a 3-room demo of our game to Midwest Gaming Classic. Of course, our website just HAD to go down at that time due to management and server changes at our web host. Ryan had to move pretty quickly to fix that and got us to a temp location while we work on a final plan.

On the plus side, I did get to do a playthrough of the mini-alpha demo build! Overall it looks and feels EXACTLY as you'd want it to. It is the Stauf Mansion, with a few graphical and movement updates. That being said, I was playing not just for fun but for hunting down bugs as well. Of course there were some, it is just a demo build after all. But, those bugs are already being squished as we speak!

Granted there will be a lot more testing to come as newer builds come out. It's all in the name of SCIENCE...er...making a good game.

-Chris
