Dread of Laughter weekly update covering what has been going on

Posted by on


First of all sorry for the lack of updates. We have been extremely busy with real life and working on the game as its quite tough when there's only 2 people working on it. We have progressed quite a bit and we are getting closer to the launch of the game!

We still have tons to do regarding few key elements like player animations and some small AI tweaks (Mostly noise sensing). Also on Saturday we are going over to a forest to record few sound samples that we are going to be using in the game. The game is 75% completed now, only missing few tweaking here and there.

We also released our last Kickstarter wave! You can help backing us out here! or on Indiegogo here!

We also released our newest Gameplay & Features trailer.

Here's also some screenshots where you can see our progress.


Progress 2

We will reveal more during next week! Sorry for the lack of updates again.
