It's astounding what can happen in two weeks. I have a lot of MAJOR news for you guys, so I better get started.
First off, I am almost done with making animations. Almost. I would have finished today if I didn't have file problems yesterday. I was able to fix it, but not with enough time to finish the remaining animations. They should be done by the end of the week with enough time for me to get started on the pre alpha.
Second, and most exciting, Volliod is getting an OST. Baxspin (Baxnet on Indie DB) PMed me saying that he wanted to make songs for my game. I'll give you one guess what I said. I would much rather have an OST for Volliod than songs I plucked from my mp3. Check his soundcloud page out here: Soundcloud.com He has already gotten started on the rooftop map song and is close to finishing, so I'll post that on the RaptorJesus Games youtube channel later this week.
Speaking of which, RaptorJesus Games has a new logo and youtube channel, and while I was at it, I also made a logo for Volliod. I'm very proud of the logos, although you guys probably don't give a crap. You can check out the youtube channel here: Youtube.com There is only the video from last week's post on there, but be sure to subscribe because I have a whole load of new update videos of Volliod and other stuff in the works. Now, here's the Volliod logo sized up. Check it:
And last, but not least, Volliod has finally hit 25 trackers. This means that it isn't so easy to become a tester anymore. If you want to, there are multiple ways you can become one.
- Contribute to the project. Contributing is by far the best way to become a tester. Not with money, but with models and animations. Almost all of the models and animations currently going into the pre alpha are placeholder, and I'm not very experienced at making either of them. So, if you email me a good model and I like it, I'll give you in return eternal thanks and early access.
- Give me support and input. Track the game and give us your support and thoughts on our posts. If I like your ideas and you seem like an awesome person, I'll let you in.
And that's it. If you'd like to give me your input or ask a question, leave it in the comments below. Happy 2014!
