So I propose that our new deadline be MONDAY 17TH OCTOBER 2011!!
Our aim to finishing days1-5 for the 30th Sept still stands - then we have a few weeks to tweak and do any final testing. Everyone cool with doing a high quality demo for the first 5 days? After we do that we can take our time to work on the rest of the game. (Sorry Errol, my priority at the moment is to focus on finishing the train bits. There will be a time in which we can focus on your research for the city so I'm afraid I'll have to put it on hold. On the plus side, that'll give you as much time in the world to research and create its history!)
ML/Rumzi: I will need you guys to focus on the 3D bits of the train. The sooner we can sort out the camera angles for the train the better. I'll keep trying to get in contact with ML for the train bits, Rumzi would you mind starting on Yu's house?
Artists: I'll need your help with painting the backgrounds >_<. I know it's a tedious task but with the help of the people working on the 3D stuff, you wouldn't need to worry about getting the perspective right and you can just focus on creating the scenes. I will do the post production work such as overlaying some filters to keep the style consistant.
Me: I will focus on the character assets for the bare minimal animations; Mike I'll leave you in charge with this when the time comes. I'll also help out with the animations so maybe we can assign certain characters for ourselves (perhaps I'll work on the main characters, Mike the minor?).
- All audio/music. Mike, I'll talk you thought it in due time.
- All cut scenes.
Comment, comment, comment. I can't stress enough how important feedback is. Even if it's just a comment to acknowledge the fact that you've read a post. As long as I have an indicator of whether it's a positive or negative post, I can sort it out immediately and not waste any time on it.
Lastly, someone want to write a proper blurb for this game? My ability to write has gone out the window and I'm definitely not a writer XD. I shall leave this post open to see if anyone wants to tackle it.
In other news, the OP PREVIEW which I've posted up on my dA account has 58 comments, and 34 favourites in just under THREE days. Which is A LOT (for me) and is evident of the positive interest in this project! WOO! I swear I only get like 10 feedback messages or so and most of them are talking with you guys so to get like 70 odd messages just for the OP PREVIEW made my day. So far there are no majorly wrong bits in it which is awesome.
Dang it, it's so damn close lol. Right. I'm off to the land of Photoshop. Sorry to scare everyone with my earlier text message! XD
Go Team Wasabi! Go go go!
