J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign will end in 9 days. CBE software announces a live-broadcasted piano and cello music recital called “IndieLude” on 10th of April 6PM GMT!

YOu can access the concert here.

Quote:
Brno, Czech Republic - April 4, 2013 - CBE Software announces the last 9 days of the ongoing IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for creating an enhanced edition of a PC videogame J.U.L.I.A located at http://igg.me/at/julia-enhanced ;

As the campaign became a big success for CBE Software and the second stretch goal is already being approached, CBE would like to announce very special and unique event – live piano and cello recital broadcasted on YouTube as a thank you present to the community who is helping to fund the enhanced edition.

Jan Kavan explains the event: "As some of our loyal fans know, I am cello player and composer who came to the game development from the musical world. The idea to play a small music recital for the community was the very first idea which came to my mind when I was thinking how to thank you all for supporting us.

Together with my wife, Barbora Kavanová, who is a piano player, we’ve started our family tradition of home concerts already a couple of years ago. This however will be the first such a concert broadcasted directly from our home to the internet. We will play for example pieces of Ástor Piazzolla or Gabriel Fauré as well as some of my own compositions and after the musical part we will continue by live answering of the questions about J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition, the campaign and other things.

The event will be hosted by tireless indie supporter Say Salazar. Lukáš Medek, the visual artist behind J.U.L.I.A., will also join us."

The event will start on Wednesday 10th of April at 11AM PDT / 2PM EDT / 6PM GMT.

The live broadcast will be available at: http://www.youtube.com/CBESoftwaresro ;

As the final countdown begins, CBE Software strongly believes that it is possible to reach a fullscreen exploration stretch goal.

Jan Kavan sums again the idea behind the stretch goal: "We are going to change the exploration parts to a hybrid between J.U.L.I.A. exploration mode and fullscreen point'n'click adventure game. We will create fullscreen visuals for more than 50 exploration views, currently represented by mini images, and the actions will be issued through contextual menu interface. This way the spirit of J.U.L.I.A will remain but both visually and gameplay-wise the enhanced edition is going to become much more engaging."

CBE software has released a brand new comparison shot showing the visual difference between the visuals if the fullscreen exploration is reached. This time it’s inside one of the research stations located on a desert world of Salia 5.

About J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition

J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition is a polished and extended version of an innovative, narrative driven PC game J.U.L.I.A. The story centers on Rachel Manners, a 35 year old astrobiologist. She is a member of an elite group of scientists, chosen to embark on one of the most critical missions ever conceived on Earth. Now Rachel is alone, orbiting an unknown planet. Her only companions are J.U.L.I.A., the space probe's artificial intelligence and Mobot, a huge reconnaissance robot. Together, this unlikely trio will explore the mysteries of the solar system of Salia. But are they prepared for what they will find?


Happy Gaming!

Thank you for spreading the news, Ana. smile We are looking forward to see you all there!

And I can see that even with my careful checking, I made a typo. It's Piazzolla. smile

They're currently at $12,154 -- almost at their "stretch goal" of $12,500, which would incluce "Fullscreen Exploration."

I'm very glad to hear this. It's good news both for the developers Jan and Say and for those who've already donated, who'll be getting a better game now.

The campaign is over. Jan and Lukas have almost three times the original amount they asked to enhance J.U.L.I.A., more than $14k! We'll be getting a better game with full-screen exploration and they will be getting...well, a little time to recuperate before they have to go back to the salt mines. grin Personally, I'm just blown away that a two man team of Indie developers could make such a beautiful game. Other Indie devs have a lot to live up to!

P.S.- After his concert the other day, Jan offered to compose some of the music for Agustin Cordes' Asylum and Augustin accepted!

Thank you so much! We're super excited about this enhanced edition because it will be much more rich game now thanks to you all!

Btw. my promise after the concert was to play music on the cello, it might be actually composition by amazing Daniel Pharos from Knights of Soundtrack! (to give credit where credit is due :))

Considering what a madman you are on the cello in some of those segments from J.U.L.I.A., I'll settle for your just playing. grin
