Hey guys! Today we have an update of what we’ve been doing these past two months. First of all, the CMF (Canadian Media Fund) announced the 14 projects selected for the Production Experimental-Innovation program across Canada and we are happy to announce that Light Fall is one of them!
This is a big deal for us, for the game and ultimately for you, the future players. Being approved by the CMF does a lot of great things for the game. Firstly, it allows us to have a salary for the entire duration of the production. This means that in the near future, we will be able to quit our part-time jobs and solely and completely devote our time to Light Fall.
It also gives us the means to have extensive QA, a marketing budget, to travel to several expos and hire another programmer on the team to speed up the production. All good news for the game! You can find more details here.
A huge part of our recent success belongs to you all. Most of you were truly the first ones to believe in us and put us on the map. So once again, thank you all so much!
Marshlands of Sorrows soundtrack preview
Now that the business stuff is out of the way, let’s get down to the interesting part of the update; the game. The second Act of the game, the Marshlands of Sorrows, is progressing tremendously well.
We have a playtesting session set in Quebec (thanks to Ubisoft Quebec for the access to their playerbase and lab) coming up in August and we will be testing the second Act there.
Recently we have been working in collaboration with our musician, Jupiterion, for the music of this act. He’s the same mastermind behind the demo’s soundtrack, by the way.
Here’s what we have in mind for the Marshlands, pretty eerie right?
The upcoming soundtracks will be shared with our Alpha Agent backers (40$+) on Kickstarter, as part of their rewards, and Jupiterion is eager to hear the feedback from you guys. So, if you supported the Kickstarter back then and are part of this bracket, stay tuned!
After the Corrupted Ancients that we showed you a few months ago, here’s another big guy that will surely cause many problems for the player: Mictlan’s Fanatics.
The Fanatics are entirely devoted to their God and will do anything in their power to block your way and protect their leader. Better watch out for them, unless you want to end up as a snack!
Well, that’s it for today. We hope you enjoyed this update and we’ll update as soon as possible.
