We’ve evolved to video capture! Yay!

Greetings!

Just a small post to give you a look at our newest video of the game in action! This is a sub-event scene, and we took footage of both choice options for you to really see just how different a scene can play out based on the choices you make. Such choices in games generally give a couple of unique lines before merging back into the "default" dialogue; we have two separate conversations entirely!

And if you haven't yet, be sure to take a gander at our in-progress Prefundia page. Come by, read our in-progress crowdfunding pitch, and leave your two cents. We're always looking for input on what you like, what you don't, what you want to hear more about or less about. Leave your mark on Undead Darlings's future!

What's missing from this video?

  • Music transition from dungeon exploration track to conversation track.
  • Sound effects for text display and screen effects (flashing white "ksssh!" and screen shake sound)
  • The white flash screen effect is messing up in our latest Unity build; it's a giant diamondy thing now, but it used to just be a flashing white screen. Odd.
  • Some outdated UI effects — the heart explosion by the text box has been revised, and the "next" button has a version that doesn't look wacky and has the edges clipped out
  • Voice acting 😉 — hey, we can dream.
  • The dungeon is still very much in-progress. The textures on the left are for storefronts that are "under construction" … waiting for regular wall textures, so they are used on both sides right now.
    No idea about the jaggies on the 3D objects. I think it's my resolution to blame because they look great when viewed individually…

Welp, thanks for watching! It's our first video in a long time, so we hope it's getting a little closer to what you'd be excited to play! How do you like the color of the fog of war? Most DRPGs use black, but we wanted it to thematically tie to the other colors in our keyart and logo.

Arbitrary Progressions!

godzillabusinessLove this picture. Anyway.

I wanted to write a quickie post to say that the Prefundia and crowdfunding pitches are shaping up to be really good—definitely surpassing our original. I can't wait to put all the screenshots and videos together for it, which brings me to…screenshots and videos! I'll be taking some over the next couple of days to share with everyone, and those will be used in the Prefundia and crowdfunding pitches as well.

It's really amazing to see where we've come to when I still remember the game as nothing but a conversation and a scribbled note. I'm super proud of everyone who's been involved and cannot wait to show off the fruits of their labor.

When the time comes, I really and truly hope we'll be able to spread the word about this game and make it exceed everyone's expectations.

Anyway, a bit of a tease I suppose, but I wanted to let everyone know that this recent silence is going to have been worth the wait! I hope!
