Glacier Games first mobile game is ready for download on android devices.. I've also scattered some cool stuff around the site. Progress is ever slow but also ever forward.. so there that. :)
Wow.. finally here.. Demo Day.. and hackers are taking down the internet.. well.. what are you gonna do.. I'll re announce in a few days after the cyber squads save us from the shadow runners.. heh.
But the demo is out there.. it's in the world.. The Story of Melody in it's current form is accessible to the public.. scary.. but amazing. If you haven't yet, jump over to the download page and grab it up for PC or Mac.
I'm going to a charity event tomorrow and then sleeping the rest of the weekend.. phew. I'm knackered as my British friends would say. :)
I've scheduled out work for the rest of the month and now nothing to it but to do it. I've started thinking of that eventual kickstarter campaign and right now I'm walking that road, figuring out costs, possible tier rewards and stretch goals and that oh so important video that proves my game is going to kick ass. I've been blasting social media with videos and images and even made an announcement on reddit. (r/indiegamedevforum) I gotta make an official Glacier Studios youtube page as I realized the other day that I argue with people a lot with my personal youtube account.. so some separation is probably a good idea there.
All of this and continuing to tell myself that what I'm doing is real and has merit and is something that will be successful.. That mantra.. Everyday. All day. The Story of Melody is important to me, maybe more important than any other project I've worked on personally or professionally. My wife (The ACTUAL Melody) has been so awesome at having my back through this. Right now everything just feels right. This is where I am supposed to be. Right here, working on this game.
Wowsers.. Some Youtube vids to show off progress and some images of the new player character and other assorted awesomeness..
So it's been a minute for sure, but Glacier Studios is back in the swing and Story of Melody has evolved a great deal. Below are some random screenshots showing the progress the game has made.
New Player mesh coming soon.
Iteration...3. Got it pretty close to what I want and the tilesheet for the overworld is nearing completion. Hopefully by this weekend, Melody will be traipsing around the woods, lookin for treasure. :)
In other news, I had a dream last night that I worked as a handy man and some guy tried to pay me in weed for fixing his house up. o.O
Blaster Bot's first week on the market statistics:
Apparently, I have a lot to learn about selling my product. Hopefully I get that figured out.
well.. Romper's not going to mobile devices as soon as thought.. There are some fees AND some hardware purchases halting that.
BUT!! A Full version is still on it's way to PC very very soon.
Maybe I won't work this weekend. Maybe I'll just play some games, watch some movies, read some comics.. take a few walks with my wife and dog and take it easy.
Yeah.. and maybe that new Fantastic Four movie will be good, while I'm wishing for things. :)
