Progress???
« on: January 23, 2006, 10:12:37 PM »
We shall get a progress word out once the legal stuff is out of the way, for now, do know the production is back on track since beggining of Jan. About the release is not longer in our hands, as I said we need to get the legal terms in order first. We will inform everyone as soon as we can, of course.

Thanks for welcoming me back, racx.  I am doing a lot better now.  It must be tough now that everything is up to VU.  I hope they give you as much freedom to do what you want as the team needs, Say.

I'm sure they will. But with all this legal matter it makes me wonder if KQIX IS going to be released (on shelves in stores).

Heck, whether it is released for free or ends up on the shelves for sale at the store --- I still plan to acquire it --  :)

Does anyone know if it would be an even greater adventure (eg. better graphics, sound or storyline) if it ended up on store shelves and had the financial backing of VU behind the Silver Lining?  To the POS team keep up the good work.

That is interesting Dew. If VU took over and made this game into one of their commercial games, the official sequel to the KQ series, if it was made officially KQIX, and came out in a box in the stores, that would mean we would not get to play it for free, we'd have to buy the game!  :P   But I wouldn't mind paying for it so long as it is not too much, I can tell this game is going to be awesome...when it finally comes out.

I agree with you Rosedragon that this game is going to be great when it comes out.  I can only hope that some new journal entries, trailers, or other information about the game will be released soon.

Well, since the topic of "how long would the other parts" take came in another topic, I thought I'd answer that question here.

I'll add to what Neil said about us not being able to work full-time on this. Basically, one of our problems with Shadows comes in the form of us being amateur. A lot of times we learned the bad way to do stuff and therefore lost a lot of time. I can say that 2002-2004 were basically our years of learning (even when we are still learning), but it was in 2004 where we went into FULL production. We grew to a huge team, we've learned how to do things, we now know shortcuts we didn't know back then, etc, etc, etc.

So, no, I don't know how long would take "Two that are one" to be finished. I know it is bigger than Shadows. Much bigger. but, like Neil said, we'll only have to add stuff to the engine, we'll know how to do things, we'll have a BUNCH of animations we can reuse, characters, etc, etc.

Also, 2D design is pretty advanced for part 2, so we don't have to worry about it. We'll be able to jump into full production.

Part 3 will be pretty much a breeze. Why? Well... it's complex because of the final stage, BUT, there's not as many characters as there are in 1 and 2, and there's a lot of revisited bgs from part 2. it's shorter as well, goes pretty much into the "action".

So... I hope that answer your questions :)

Thanks, Cesar for more information on The Silver Lining.  Now if only I can get Yonkey in here to reveal some spoilers on TSL that would be so nice.   :sneaky:
