Hey everyone! We're entering the final few days of our Kickstarter and, while it's no guarantee that we'll make our funding goal at this point, we're remaining hopeful that we can see a surge of backers in this last week of our campaign. In the meantime I figured I'd come over and share a few of the things that we've posted in our Kickstarter updates over the last week or two, just to show off some of the news and progress from the game.
Our most exciting news is that we have a new character artist & animator on the team: Marie Therese comes to us with a very diverse background and portfolio with a focus on animation, and we're really happy to have her aboard. You can see her introduction post, as well as her first concept for our main character's best friend Remy, in this update on our Kickstarter page
We also released a timelapse painting video
of our first Asgardian location in the game, Thor's Stables. This is done by our lead artist Ole Jacob Kielland, and features music from the game by composer Jon Helmer Dahl. It's a little long but (at least in my admittedly biased opinion) really worth it. OJ's a great artist, and I always enjoy watching him work - Even if it's at around 10x speed.
We also did a Reddit AMA
, and got our Steam Greenlight campaign
off the ground, alongside some additional general polish to the project's front page. *And* we still have the last week of our Twitter contest
to go, with the final in-game appearance to give away as well as the grand prize of a hand-drawn backdrop from the game, painted by OJ Kielland himself and shipped free anywhere in the world - I really look forward to seeing what OJ does for this one.
And that's most of the news from our front. We're closing in on the 80% mark with three days and a few hours remaining on the clock, so as said it's no guarantee we're going to make our goal. But if nothing else the team and I want to thank everyone here on Gameboomers for their support and incredibly kind words, and we're going to do everything we can these last few days to reach the finish line. Again, thank all of you for your support over this last month, and we hope you'll be hearing more from us soon!
