Posted by on

Hi Everyone!

Our last post is dated “10 months” ago but it doesn’t mean we are not working on the project anymore, we are still here rockin :) You should follow us on Facebook, Twitter and our blog as well, they are our main channels to speak to you.

But we love IndieDB and I’m here to make a quick recap of these months:
’ll talk about development later, don’t worry! :)

New Trailer

This is the new trailer we made for Gamescom 2015 (i’ll talk about it later). This video talks about Renèe, our main character. For other new videos, visit our Youtube Channel.

Ok. It’s time. Just Do It!

We are about to begin the last months of development. 3 months, just to be clear.
It’s a lot of work still to do and we have no time left!

We are, exentially, doing 4 things right now:

  1. Last month to change things: If something bother us, or it just doesn’t feel as good as it has to be, we are still in time to modify it. We talk about it and then we decide to keep it, remove it or change it. If we keep doing this over and over the game won’t be release so fast, and we don’t want this :)
  2. Close Events: we started to close events. We have to take off all the placeholder and replace them with proper objects or characters. Find the right image-effect for the camera or the best sound for a particular moment. Also we are changing every bad written text with proper text according to the story. Lately we are going to translate it for you, and it’s not an easy task with 15k words
  3. Optimizing: We need this in every moment of our development. We have to find bad written code and fix it. Replace models with higher polycount than normal and rearrange them. We want that everyone will be able to play The Town Of Light without hiccups or slowing down. Holy FPS!
  4. Public Relation: Development is of course our main focus, but we know that while the game needs to speak for himself, PR are vital to make sure to let everyone one knows about The Town of Light and our vision. So, we are also planning a lot of updates on the website, show the game at shows around the world, events, youtube video, streaming and everything else needed to tell you all the details about the game and is release.

Consider that we are a very small team working full-time on the project (5-6 at the moment) and you will understand why we have no time left.

Here's a screen of a 2D cutscene showing Charlotte.

      Globale.eventi[395] = true;
      Globale.ultimoCapitolo = 16; 

And here's a snippet of code, just for fun ( in italian of course!).
