Paradigm Shift

We are sorry to have kept you waiting.

As you may all have noticed (or not), we have been on a sort of long hiatus and there are several reasons for this, not all of them good. Primarily me (Kremator), will be graduating soon from university and as I am a foreigner studying in the United States, I will need to find a job within a few months of graduation or be deported, never to return. This has motivated me to actually start thinking about the project in a commercial sense so I can be self-employed - however, after some logistics, it is not feasible at this current time, it would require too much money and too much manpower.

After attending this past GDC, I have had the pleasure to make an acquaintance of Robert Briscoe, creator of Dear Esther who gave me some very good advice. I've also met up with the City17 team who, as of this moment, I am proud to announce that we will be working together on an undisclosed independent game project.


So watch this space.


What does this mean for CANVAS? It means CANVAS will be on hold for the time being, but we will be coming back to it once we have enough resources to accomplish what we envision CANVAS to be, as I feel anything less than that would be cheating the audience. This might mean CANVAS will be a commercial release but rest assured that it will be revisited again.

As for what we're currently cooking up - let's just say that all will be revealed...in time.

I don't usually make comments on this site, I just sit and observe. But I really must say this really is a very special piece of work, hats off for all the hard work that has clearly come together to produce a very unique and exciting game.

I'm having a hard time believing this is a free mod.
Amazing, it's like something out of my dreams. Love it all, keep it up.

Not sure if the team will be posting this so in the meantime you can check out the Mod Sentry interview with some of the Canvas team here: Modsentry.com

I must say, it looks incredible.

Impressive content. I waited for this moment now I'm tracking this mod for sure. :)

One question: Can we know what is the current progress on the mod or is it the same BMS "When it's done" approach?

:D Thanks for the answer.
But that will be the full mod right, or are you going with the episodic approach like some of the other higher standard singleplayer mods? (Like "Human error" or "1187")

We're releasing the mod in "paintings" so yes, semi-episodic, but each painting's story is enclosed in its own world. But there is also an over-arching story to the whole thing.
