A happy little tree

Written by gijs. Posted in Artwork

It’s been a bit since my last post. At least I’ve been doing more than my number of posts would indicate, as Jan also mentioned in his previous post.

The main animations (the walk cycles) are done and included in the game. I’m now finishing up some additional frames for when the characters exit a level or when they are standing still. I’ve also been working on tweaking the title screen and the in game buttons. And of course: a tree! Why a tree you ask? Well, it all has to do with the new and improved story. With the upcoming Beta release (it’s almost there!) it will become clear.

As you may have noticed: the site looks slightly different. Updating the template to something a bit more groovy fell a bit behind with all the work on the game itself (not to mention Diablo III), But finally it’s here.

As far as the game goes, I’ve spend a lot of time on getting better animations as Jan already mentioned. To give an idea, in the original game we used 8 images per character. I’ve upped that to 28 right now. Still working on Ben, but Marley and Isabelle are done (a small .gif impression to the right). It smooths things out greatly, so I think it’s well worth the effort.

Progress on Together Alone is excellent! The in game things are going great and are looking pretty slick (if I say so myself). Besides that we are also still working some story stuff. That’s what this image is all about: story cards artwork. That’s from my side of things the biggest thing to finish. The rest is polish, polish and some more polish

Not to give any final release date but it does feel more and more like we are on the home stretch. Right now we are actually also starting on brainstorming about our new game. More about that soon!
