The Hero of Time Update 07/12

After a few months of mystery and no sign of us we are back with many news for you so we can release this game " muchTM " faster.

Heres a little overview of what we will have in this News.

1. Current Situation
2. How we are going on
3. New Music
4. Release Calander and Infos
5. Win a Beta Entry
6. You can help !

1. Current Situation

To be honest we havent been working on the game real much. I did have much pressure at work and a few things went wrong that shouldnt went wrong. Well it doesnt matter so we cary on from this new point :)

Here are a few "%" for you to see the current status.

Models : 50%
Speech : 35%
Music : 99%
Landscapes : 75%
Dungeons : 35%-40%
Overall Mapping : 50%

Complete Status 55%

2. How we are going on

Most of the finished Stuff is for the little Link. So we have something special for you :) More to that later. We are currently planing to finish the game early 2013. But dont worry ! You will play the game before that date. More to follow in the next chapters.

In the last few months i did learn very much about the UDK. Not coded stuff though in which i am aweful but i learned many new things inside the UDK. The most important stuff for us is that i learned Unreal Landscape which is a great tool to have beautiful Landscapes. For The Hero of Time that means that the new area we are adding will be completely made in Landscape.

Oh did i just Spoil our new area we are adding to The Hero of Time. Well yeah we are going to add an "extra Dungeon", "extra Boss", "new Enemies" and an Epiloge.

I know some people will not like that so we are making this optional.
Basicly this new area will feature what happened after Ganons Death and what last dangerous dungeon Link has to explore and why.

I also remade the whole "Hyrule Plains" to fit them more to your comments (Use the Engine, Addd more stuff ...).

3. New Music

We did contact ZREO an awesome project for reorchestered music as Tom Stoffel isnt aviable anymore for us.
We did ask them for the permission to use their whole Zelda Ocarina of Time Album for our game and they gave us the permissions and we are so proud to have them. If u read that we love your work ! So the good news is the complete soundtrack is done !

Here you can here some of them :) Tell us in the comment what you think about every song if possible.

Im suprised nobody found out the reversed track yet :) I´ll give a clue. It´s a song from Adult Link. So after finishing the Little Link part.

actually i like the idea of adding a whole new dungeon and a new boss, i suggested you guys watch this vid( there is a part 2 on the channel i think). it shows the stages of development, there were even ideas of another dungeon, something with light i think!

Firstly, just want to say that music was done amazingly, I was a little hesitant at listening to it at first because I haven't heard anyone redo Ocarina of Time music properly but I gave it a go and it is fantastic, best remake I've heard done by far and since it's not EXACTLY like the original it's got it's own sound, it sounds a bit fresh, newer if you will, like if it were done for Skyward Sword.

Also, I knew exactly what song the mystery song was right when I heard it even if it is backwards, I won't spoil it for others though.

Would it be plausible to show some early progress of the development of the game?
