Its been a busy couple of months since we made our last blog post! In that time we’ve built up our Kamioka castle map, added in new animations, built new armor sets and even published our first video blog (which you can view here: Youtube.com).

We’re now at a point where we’ve got A LOT to show off, so going forward we’ll be providing some more regular updates in the form of videos and Facebook/Twitter updates. If you’re not following us already, have a think about following or liking us to stay up to date with all the latest news:

Our Kamioka Castle environment is now very nearly finished! Its taken quite a long time to get all the textures/materials/lighting setup right but we’re pretty happy with the result. If you haven’t done already, check out our first video blog which includes a ‘fly through’ of the scene: Youtube.com.

In other news, we've been experimenting with our brand new Mocap (motion capture) tool, kindly provided by the guys at Cinema Mocap (Cinema-suite.com). Me and Jay have been playing around with the tool to look at what type of motions it can capture accurately.

We've almost got the pipeline nailed down and will be doing another video update in the near future to show how it all works.

In other news, Jay and Marcus have been making strides with integrating some of the new animations and character controller component. We've been hit with a few delays where real-life stuff had to take priority. That said- we've recently hit a real milestone in the development and will do some video updates focusing on gameplay soon.

Next weekend, we've got our first ever mo-cap session booked! We’re working with a bunch of Martial Artists from Somerset Budokai to get some solid video and mocap references. Its going to be an awesome experience working with them and getting some valuable footage- so we’ll be doing a video update specifically on that as well!

Thanks for reading, and be sure to follow us on FB and Twitter!

If I remember correctly, the developers stated they would stop going silent, and this wouldn't be the first time they were silence for a couple months. It kind of tells you a little of how they treat their community.

2014 is coming to a close and there has been a big gap since the last update.
Where is development up to?
Can we see a video of the combat mechanics?
When will the KickStarter campaign start?

Thanks Damianturnball (and 47 Ronin below). In short, we've been pretty stacked recently with some business stuff. The good news is that, after quite a few months of really hard work, we're now in a position where one of us will start work on the game full-time in the new year. This is quite an exciting prospect for us, and so we've changed our approach to Kickstarter by wanting to produce a full-demo PRIOR to the campaign, instead of just showing off a few set pieces.

It means a lot more work, but we think that if we give people the ability to play the game, it'll convince more of them to back us. I'm working on a more comprehensive blog post to cover all of this and will be posting it within the next week or so :) !

Thanks for your continued support :) !

I think it is wise to have a complete demo before going to KickStarter.
Looking forward to the next update.

Yeah, what this guy said.
I assume that you are all really busy but can you tell us how much you've progressed with the game? After all there wasn't a devblog in half a year if I'm not mistaken.
Any major changes occured in your game concept? Etc.
I think I speak in the name of your whole fanbase when I say that I'm amazed with this game and how it's shaping up. Keep up the good work!!! Cheers!!!
