Hey everyone! It's been too long since we came on here to update you all on what we're up to! 

 

We've been posting pretty regularly over on kickstarter though. 

 

Anyway, here's a very abbreviated version of the kickstarter updates since oh... December last year or something like that! 

 

The game is progressing roughly on schedule, which is great! Content is being added, gameplay is getting there and we've made a few new hires since we posted last on here. 

 

  • We have a new senior game designer! His name is Thomas French and has been spending his time at Rockstar in Edinburgh before joining us. 
  • We've hired an in-house 3D environment artist as well! Matthew Wells hails from the UK, and has been working at Frontier Developments and Rare Ltd in the past. 
  • In addition to Jory on sound we now have √ėyvind Mathisen as well! He's a composer/producer that has worked, among others, with Rock Pocket games before heading over to our neck of the woods. 

We're thrilled to have them all! They make excellent additions to the team and helps a lot in keeping up with the pretty tight schedule we have in the months ahead! 

 

We're steadily working on gameplay, story and all the other bits as well as adding content. 

 

Couple of gifs of animations:

We have completed Ramoo Island and totally redesigned Plumpet Island. While doing Plumpet we have also to some degree redesigned the harvesting and crafting system for more flexibility.

Basically we have detached the direct harvesting of ammo, and introduced recipes where the crops from harvest have become ingredients. So now you can craft potions and various ammunition from the resources harvested. You will also need recipes that need to be deciphered or purchased at the library.

The new Plumpet island is now completed and in-game.

GDC Activities

 

We are proud to announce that we have received the GDC Best in Play award. 8 games out of more than 50 were selected as the Best in Play.

To round things off, here's a small selection of concept art for things that are currently working their way into the game!

for a game that accoding to the main page ships this year..... we'e not getting much info for something that supposedly  4 months or less away... Of course I coudl say the sme about Persona 5 but thats an AAA game so its not known for numerous extremely long/constantly delays and you dont pay for it months (or years) in advanced.

@DuoMaxwell007: Thanks for pointing that out. I'll try to address that in the next Developer update that is due. I'm just waiting for N4G.com to post the results of the indie competition.

Expected delivery: 04 2015. That would be Apr. 2015, right? So about 5 to 6 months ago? It is quite confusing.

Hi

 

Sorry about the neglect of the forum. We're so caught up in development that we haven't gotten around to being active here as much as we should've. The kickstarter page still gets monthly updates though, so the most recent info can usually be found there: https://www.kickstar...f-magic/updates

 

We had to push the date quite a bit form the estimate you're referring to, yes. Right now we're aiming towards end of Q1 2016 for the first console, which is currently looking like it'll be the Xbox One with the PS4 and other platforms following that as soon as we can get them ready.
