Posted by on

Yup, it's that time of the year again kids - our exploratory narrative game Postmortem is reaching the next milestone with brand new art, major character rewrites, and beta testing opening up next week!

For the curious mind, here's a few of our the biggest changes coming:

Walk Animation
Walk, walk, walkity walk...

  • New Conversation UI With Portraits - we already shared a quick preview with you. Beautiful artwork coming from one J. Flynn!
  • New Sprites - finally, we shall be saying good-bye to our Final Fantasy Tactics placeholders and welcome some great pixel art by Noah "HeartGear" Page!
  • Character Dialogue Rewrites - lots of rebalancing and fleshing out characters, for instance making a certain boy less of a, as one tester put it, "little shit" :P
  • New Intro Sequence - that will ease the player into the game world and provide more context!
  • Beta Testing Commencing - opening doors for last chance to preview and influence the game! Unconfirmed rumors say the signups may already be up if you poke around our website...

And of course some other new features and bugfixes. Oh and we are still open for an extra Writer/Editor or Items / Viewables / UI Graphic Artist as well if you're interest - shoot us an email with some samples!
