Hello again everyone! Our deepest apologies for missing last weeks scheduled development blog post. We have been in crunch mode eliminating all of our outstanding alpha demo tasks and we only realized we missed a post when it came time to write the next one. D’oh! I’ll try to make up for last weeks missing post by announcing some awesome news in this one :).
First, the game is playable from start to finish. We have all of our planned content for the main story complete and implemented. Our art assets are all finished with the exception of backer-specific assets. We are working on those now, so if you have not yet finished the survey please do so as soon as possible! Currently, we are working on implementing the last of our skill animations, AI logic and our credit sequence. Once those are all wrapped up the core game will be content complete! Exciting stuff 😀
Second, if you are a Kickstarter backer, expect to have the alpha demo on July 22, at the latest. The Alpha Demo will have two to three hours of extra content and will let you play through Dradora, Sea Side House, Wind Tower, and Borges. Please note, we have spent a lot of time fixing as many bugs as possible, but it is possible we will have missed some. If you experience any difficulties or have any suggestions on improving the game, feel free to post in our Bugs and Feedback forum so we can start public discussion on your bug/suggestion :D.
Lastly, we are going to use the Humble Bundle Widget to help us automate our backer specific content. The Humble Widget gives us a lot of flexibility regarding distribution and saves us precious time so we do not have to build our own solution. More time we can spend on the game sounds great by us :D. So what does this mean for you? On July 22, all backers will receive an e-mail from the The Humble Widget with a download page link. Clicking this link will take you to your download page where you can associate your Humble Account with your purchased content from the Shadows of Adam Kickstarter. Once we launch the game, you will be able to redeem your special backer content (digital wallpaper, art book, strategy guide, ost) or Steam keys from your download page. You will also be able to download DRM-free versions of the game from the same download page, should you choose to do so.
We want to thank everyone once again for all of the support! The finish line is in sight 😀
