State of the Factory: Year 2

Thanks for reading to the end! I hope it’s been useful. And if you’ve stayed with us through the rough times, we really appreciate it, both of us. A heartfelt thank you. It’s probably meant more this year than any time before or since.

Feb #1: CALIDORE & THE BLATANT BEAST

Next sprint – DUESSA – is the last two weeks on BOOK OF HOURS prototyping before we move onto to something rather exciting that we haven’t publicly announced. There’s a bunch of stuff going on behind the scenes in this early, fluid pre-production period that we can’t talk about yet, but… I’m actually excited about it, and this is my LIFE. So I think you will...

“Got your book. Pretty good condition, too. Bit blurred round the edges, but the little fellow’s taken good care of it…” (January 15th-ish, 1906)

Address is in Vienna. Now you know how I feel about Vienna, never quite comfy there since all that with the Club, but I think, Serena’s a good sort, owe her a favour or two, not so far on the train. Off I pop.

In the meantime, our “State of the Factory: Year 2” should make for interesting reading, if you’re into the business ramifications of pretty much the worst PR a small indie studio could have. AK may turn his hand to some non-game-specific writing, but again, we’ll see what happens.

BOOK OF HOURS Update

Hey everyone. AK’s in a bad place right now and taking some time away from work. As such, BOOK OF HOURS is on pause and the Kickstarter won’t go live today.

In which Weather Factory invents the 3rd Dimension

“2D thing in a 3D world” has shown itself to be a repeated theme in all kinds of decisions I’ve had to go through for BOOK OF HOURS. It’s even managed to squeeze its way into discussions around shaders and art direction, but that’s straying into territories I’d rather cover in another post.

MAY #2: KNOWL

Anyway, this post has gone on long enough. Next sprint, a MYSTERIOUS FIGURE arrives at Weather Factory’s doorstep at the start, and I go home for my mum’s birthday at the end. It’s like a Harry Potter novel, if Harry were called Lottie and wasn’t magic.
