Post news Report article RSS Feed Lack of updates, and Ryoku costumes update!

We give a little bit of insight as to the lack of updates (there's a reason for it, and eventually it will lead to good news.)

Posted by urinal-cake on May 6th, 2012

Hi everyone! Kickstarter pledger Joey Smith asked a very valid question, that I want to respond to in front of everyone. Recently, there have been a pretty significant lack of updates. For a while, we were doing weekly development journals of progress for Blade Symphony.

Do not fret, updates will return! There is a perfectly good reason for why we have not released updates. However, I'm not allowed to be specific about what that reasoning is; so I'll have to be a little bit vague. We've recently entered into a very small time period, as a business entity, where we are unable to talk about the game. Again, this is a very short period, and we hope to get back to weekly updates within the next 1-2 weeks.

So please don't worry, and try not to think about the reasoning too much. Just know that we're doing this to protect Blade Symphony, and we want to keep everyone updated very much. In the meantime, our last development journal posted on April 7th, didn't get much love here! So here it is! Development Journal #6 gives you a quick view of the new costumes that we've created for the Ryoku character. Believe you me, we intend on adding additional costumes as time goes on and tweaking our current ones. These costumes will have NO effect on gameplay.

Instead, we've received some very cool ideas about costumes getting their own taunts, gestures and particles. If you have any ideas about how to make costumes more unique, please do leave us a comment!

So I just started following this game again and am glad to see you guys going to be making an indie game out of it!

Only question I have is will the kickstarter items be simply cosmetic or will they have different stats? It would really suck to miss out on them if they did have stat changes :(

Not sure if these are the ones you mean but, it as it says in the article, "These costumes will have NO effect on gameplay."

So I'm guessing a company is looking at you? Some kind of publisher and until that blows over no regular updates?

i'm not a huge swordsman expert, but i just noticed the padding is on his right arm, but wouldn't it be more effective it it were on the left side of his body when righthanded?
