Hey all, sorry for the sparse updates. Core ran out and I've been busy working on Cogs, as is my life atm. I miss you all a lot right now, but I know ultimately it will be worth it.
I'm still hoping for a late summer release date. Sooner if I can manage it, later if I can't. But I only have FOUR more models (in terms of characters) I need to finish up. I'm going to start posting the turntables here like I said I would.
CastingI still need voice actors of all genders, ages, etc.; I've had some absolutely wonderful auditions thus far and I would love to get some more. (If you haven't heard from me, don't assume that you didn't get the role(s) you auditioned for - I'm just trying to get a few options to be absolutely sure. You're still in the running. ♥ ) This is a good guide, but I made it when I was tired and didn't notice it's missing some roles. So. I'm going to fix that today. But still, consider it an active 'casting list.'
Get ahold of me through here, my site, indiedb, email, wherever if you're interested in auditioning. Keep in mind that all levels of experience are welcome and I'll happily coach until I get what I need. I don't bite and I'm 100% here to help. Reminder: this is an unpaid position. I really wish it wasn't, but I'm currently poor(er) than a church mouse. I can supply art and a few other things, such as early demo access, beta-testing, etc., but I just don’t have the cash yet. A full copy free of charge will be yours upon release. I'm planning to do some sticker sets and illustrations - you will definitely get copies for whatever character you play and possibly more. I'll know more when things get closer. I can also help you get a better mic depending on what's going on!
Progress as a WholeReminder you can keep track of what I remember on the trello page! It's not 100% accurate or complete, but I do put some things up when I've finished them. Also the indiedb page gets lots of WIPS.
I'm putting together a height chart - I forget who asked me for one, but seeing all of the bots I've finished thus far has brought a tear to my eye. We're so close.
After I finish up these last few models, the majority of the work is going to be programming for the levels, finishing up the final script, and making props/decor/polish.
And debugging. Hoo boy. Coolette is working nearly perfectly, but at some point in Coolette's programming Ciao Ciao decided he was going to go to three rooms and then promptly fuck off for the rest of it. Only in one of the game modes. Yeesh.
I thought I had more to say, but I guess I don't. Oops. Well.
If you have any questions at all I'd be happy to put them in an FAQ. ♥
Thanks all, hopefully I have something shiny for you soon.
