An artist by day and ninja by night. I'm the lead artist for French Rice Games in charge of pretty much of all the visuals from in-game, media posts, to website graphics. Rice is tasty.
Feed your dwarfs :( That's the most important thing.
@Guest shoot us an email and we can send you a Desura key :)
Why thank you Mr. Cow.
The animal eating was for sure but deterioration from crossing sounds like a good idea :)
Readability. Being able to quickly distinguish how many tile spaces and they work better together with a border when put together near other tiles.
<3 Honestly the post didn't look this long when I typed it out :-/
:< No bueno let me look into it quickly. Should have gone live during this news post. But yeah 23 fixed a HUGE game breaking bug.
It should be live? Has it not updated for you Eagle?
Hey seif just shoot us an email and Garrett will gladly send you a Desura key :)
Dwarfs now have the ability to freely available to climb on tiles now :)
It's one of those issues that is very difficult to fix without an actual mac on hand. Virtualbox does not render the graphics accurately... Luckily we will have access to a mac this Friday.
LOVE the art style :) Keep up the good work!
O.o Award time already!?
Yeah we are aware of the issues and Garret has been attempting to fix it every update. Unfortunately neither of us actually have a mac we can test it on and the one individual that is play testing it on mac has been getting random memory leaks unfortunately :-/
100% Series. Dead Serious. As serious as a heart attack. Super Serious. Serious Sam Serious.
Only kids play TF2. It's such a childish game I can't stand playing any game without iron-sight and regenerating health. Everyone eventually grows up some time and plays REAL games like Call of Duty. That is what hardcore gamers play not kiddie games like TF2.
Actually these are all placeholder graphics. We plan on adding hyper-realistic sprites and liberally sprinkle blood and gibs throughout so we can attract more "mature" audiences.
Sir yes sir!
Congrats you guys! I'm glad you guys are as far as you are in development and its great to see so much progress from the team!
Appreciate the support Huey! I realize how tough this will be for some who do want to partake in Black March.
I was worried about this same thing with Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3. However the window of opportunity for these games to be released should be well past March.
It was a legitimate site that hosted files for many companies. Hell we even hosted some files on megaupload during the early days. It is just a shame for the users that did use megaupload to host their files will not be able to use this service anymore.
That's fine. We obviously aren't forcing people to partake in Black March. However individual's want to spend their hard money is perfectly fine with us.
Alpha 15 and news on future updates?
Kinda a broad generalization that women don't have a sense of humor...
Wait... what... I wasn't aware we were releasing DLC.. this is news to me :-/
Must have been a decision Garrett made without me.
Ha just extra art assets I had lying around and threw together in the scene :) I suppose I should have made an A-Team cast of Indie characters instead.
I'll be the first to tell you there is no gameplay yet... however there IS a tutorial in the goodies folder. The game still has a long way to go.
:) Thanks for the support!
Just the greatest danger the universe has ever known against the spirals.
Thanks for the support Paradigm :)
Will do good sir!
Yeah I caught that as well....
We'll be subsequently fixing these bugs with each new update.
One of the very wonders of converting a your graphics library in a week. So much fun bugs left and right :)
Our forums, it was going to be as a .pdf but I like having an in-game creature compendium :) Sounds like a very likely idea.
^ this Fantastic game :)
HUD looks ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! :D FANTASTIC PIXEL ART!
Feel free to use :) Courtesy of French Rice Games
Hope you enjoy it.
Soooo... I heard you guys like chickens?
Unfortunately that is the repercussions of having duel shielding in the game :S Yeah more late night animating for me.
Glad you liked it! :D Was curious what you guys thought of the post ^_^!
I have never gotten this emotional over pixel art. It always astounds me the magic a few small pixels can do with a what looks like a truly engaging story. There are few things that can get grown men to cry, and I am humbled to say this trailer was one of them. Fantastic work and absolutely love the music.
This might be stupid but is the latest version of Java installed?
Yes, we are aware of a big bug where if the red dwarf walks to the left it freezes... and yes we will have an update by today.
Something I would not mind doing as an article in the future.
I suppose we'll take the scientific approach and test out how many chickens it actually takes to allow a dwarf to fly.
Ha I figured implying what it was would be good enough but I'll make sure to call out Minecraft next time.
Great Trailer! :D Thoroughly enjoyed every second of it!
We were literally gonna do something similar to this article last week :-/
Great article nonetheless! Can't wait to see this game progress.
We really are excited with each new update we release to our community. We can't wait to really start expanding the games content and concepts once the core mechanics have been implemented.
Annnnd thats why you don't get the artist to write the news post. Fixed though :) Thanks for the heads up eteranlist!
I'll ask Garrett to see whats up. What OS are you running by chance?
We are currently spendng 100% of our time developing SoR right now. That's all that matters ;)
Oh yes, yes it is.
Great art direction! Looking forward to playing the demo!
Fairly interesting concept. I have a couple questions. If you build a houses will others be able to populate it? If so will making a small town or city have town keepers and quest npcs?
Also in regards to the goat. Important goat is important. No need to make anymore sense out of it then that :P
Hope the best of luck on this project! You've caught my interest, I'll be keeping an eye out on updates :)
Btw pixel art! Yeah! :D good choice!
Great job on the trailer you guys! Keep up the good work.
Every good beat'em up needs a transvestite. Points over to Poison from final fight.
Currently it is only for aesthetics. We are aware we are losing a lot keeping it on a 2d plane. However we have some interesting plans and use of different layers and tiles that we will be implementing to try and makeup for the loss of an axis.
Great job on release :)
The game looks amazing! Unfortunately I do not have the iPhone 4 :( I hope you guys are successful!
Ha :) LoL matches serve to treat ourselves after long hours of programing and creating sprites. Alliteratively LoL cuts back on time we should be spending working on the game some days.... some days.
Thanks for the interest in French Rice Games however Garrett and I currently have all the help we need right now. If our work load starts picking up we will gladly let you know :)
That CAN be fixed.
why yes sounds about right. :)
Atilla I'm going to nudge you to reread the news post again!
Really though, incredible job on the artwork!
I appreciate both your votes very much!
Yes it is and thank you very much :)
Akalonor is correct it is the smaller green cousin.
Yes you so most certainly can :) Although it will take a bit longer then your standard trees.
Yes I have no idea how to add friends also :-/
seriously great release! I absolutely loved it.
This is a gift sent from the heavens!
Straight Effing Epic.
Amazing work like always you guys! Eagerly waiting release :)
