Blog Post #9: Progress bar

This is our friendly reminder that we have made progress with the game, not only by getting most of the narrative scripts done, but also by starting soon with assets. We have almost set with the first draft for the short story that is going to come with before the release of the Peace Quarter and then with the released game for backstory, because we love backstory and lore.

Lately we have been busy taking part in different happenings locally and being part in events in near region that promote healthy game culture. Which is nice, because did we wanted or not, were part of the gaming culture by just being and then of course just being gamers. So, it's great to see our gaming culture being treated nicely and presented for kids all ages as a legitimate hobby rather than something only nerds do in the basement. And we know as a fact, that can't be true, because no one of use is living in the basement, so we don't qualify as a gamer? Maybe gaming is just something normal like playing sports or collecting postmarks. You can be passionate for it (like, I don't know, start making them) or treat it as a hobby and nothing more. And that's okay. And of course, everything between those two. Maybe you're passionate about gaming, but not passionate enough to start making yours or passionate enough for some game to start competitive gaming.

GemFall Workforce Inc. has been downloaded past two months a lot, or at least more than we imaged by now, because it's our first game and all and some of the idea was to just make a game and get to know our own working process with it, so it would be ready when we need to start with Peace Quarter. But it has been better and we thank you for downloading and trying it out. We really appreciate it. Thanks.

Our first promo art for Peace Quarter is also in the corner (of your eye) and soon we post it here and it's going to rain rainbows and kittens. Talking about kitten, Oh My Kitties release have been delayed a lot lately, but that is, in a weird way a good thing, because it means we have much on our plate. But we're doing it and going to give you a Oh My Kitties - out of open beta, ASAP. Meanwhile, you can still download the game from Google Play Store in it's open beta stage you can also try out our cool clicker app that our coder made.

It helps if you're working in anywhere where you need to count people, or coffee cups or anything.

Now working on: getting the narrative scripts to life and finishing the promo art. You will see, you all will see. 
Other: Binge watching Firefly because it's going to be taken from the Netflix. 

Next stop, promo art. Stay tuned.

Blog post #8: Updates

We have been busy with making our second mobile game and with other stuff life keeps throwing towards us. But nevertheless, were determined to start working on Peace Quarter again ASAP.

In April, we're taking the narrative script to the public or at least semi-public for the first time. After getting approval that the narrative works we can finally start really doing the concepts for the game that are not changing so easily. This means actually that our narrative writer is going to be hanging out in a creative writing sessions through Easter and come back home with lot of new ideas and good tips. Because, as we have said here many times, it is easier to start really building the levels and gameflow when we know, what we really need and what we want to make. Also, something that really helped was making the pitch for our game. Which is something we have had in our minds for a long time, but you know, when you don't need to do stuff, you won't do stuff. 

Now, life keeps throwing stuff to us and we're keen to get both our mobile games better.

If you're interested, we now have let's plays for both. Check this GemFall Workforce Inc. video by Leon House from below and maybe even give it some love by liking and sharing. 

This week we also gave a first ever pitch about Peace Quarter on Tuesday (which we probably need to learn to do better) and then we participate in school info day with GemFall Workforce Inc.. So in the end, we have been busy.
