Report article RSS Feed Lack of alpha and a little change

Well, we said alpha would be out on the 30th if all went well, and all did not go well.

Posted by ashes13 on Jul 29th, 2013

So, as some of you know there will be no alpha on the 30th. We lost a good modeler (Luca/Senluc) and we need a super good animator (some new modelers wouldn't hurt either). Right now Tori (paws) is filling in as our animator, but it is not his main field and he needs a break. Steven is also stepping down as lead coder and is handing over the code to Terry (A coder who we have kinda had on backup) due to the fact that he now has a job that takes priority. He will still be helping out when he can.

So there's that, alpha is not out because people have been busy with real life and we've lost people/need people. I'm sorry if you are disappointed but stuff happens, and honestly we thought we would make the deadline until we lost Senluc.

Good that you gave us an update, so that we know the why's. And I think RL is allowed to happen, especially on something that truly is a huge undertaking like this.

Until we get an animator the alpha isn't going to be able to go anywhere, unless you enjoy playing a game where your character just stands there while you move it around.

Eh, just keep your spirits high and it'll happen sooner or later. Rome wasn't built in one day as they say.

We still have the animations, but they can not apply to all models and there are still battle related animations missing for the current model.
