While a big projects move slowly like the sleeping elephant we want to wake us... at this time all of the net world full of old school and pixels games. But... why people cant bring back the golden times of "Lands of Lore"? "Legend of Kyrandia", "Flash Back", "Another World", "Zeliard"? We want to do this. Our game it's not only old school platformer. It's a game with a right colors, old style of creation of games... and... ofcourse a right story about good guy in a bad time in a right place. The mysterious island. Lot of puzzles. Francis Drake. Real story of vessel named Pelican. Lot of treasures. New friends and old enemies. New enemies and old gold. All it... Drake. We call it - Drake.

Progress of our work in pieces of concept-art, fragments of 3D content which i'll made for Drake.

Posted by on

Some people, even our musician-guy ask me - what happened with a Drake. I have only one type of answer for all of you. I have a lot work with a style of Drake now. Because it's important, important as and the controller. I'm not ready yet show you controller-demo because on present time i don't like results. You, like every other player - deserve the best. As soon as I can reach the good result - you'll get a chance to test the demo.

So today ... only concepts. Fragments of what I'm doing right now. Sheets of paper with my workbench.

This is a typical air-vessel of Hind. Because parts of construction used in a variety of construction we made a model. Many of concept-arts which you can see earlier now will be made as models. It's a lot of work. This is a reason of my radio-silence in net. Do not afraid - work on Drake move along.

The same happens with the other elements created on the concept. The city has many buildings. Draw each of them - a colossal work. In order to speed up the process, we create a model. Do you remember the building with traps for the wind? In a previous news? Here it.

How it will look in the game? What will be the same ship (see above) next to the Drake? I think it will look like...

The rumors that Drake is gone - are greatly exaggerated. As long as my heart banging - we will work on the project and get him to release. Do not give up, we need your support and your faith.

Thanks. Glad to know that you do not forget me. Sorry for a longer audio silence, but i have a lot of work. I hope that in this month we can see, at last, first screen of Drake. But (show a crossed finger)... no more about it.

And if you interested i can record the audio diaries of developers. Because it's a faster then writing text. But... i can't know services which help me to publish audio logs.

soundcloud - you can upload your audio diaries there, if you want to, but youtube videos with comments would be much better, IMO.

And nice to see more Russian devs coming on IDB with good projects, good luck!

YES! I am so glad to see you back! I had been worried several times that something might have gone wrong and work on Drake had ceased. Keep up the great work, and thank you for the update.

Hi Bhanshee. Nice to see you again! Don't worry about cancellation of Drake. We move on. Our vessel stop for refueling, but it is regular process. Captain just smokin on bridge, check ship status and scream "Full ahead". Hope we meet soon.
