See that fellow up top, the one in the top hat and overcoat, the one holding the walking stick and the death ray? Yeah, that’s our next project (I told you Death Rays would be involved. Aliens will be along shortly), well, alright, thats concept art of our next project, but you know what I mean! Chris has been doing a lot of prototyping work to get the gameplay down while I’ve been generally being a good university student and studying for my summer exams. I did, however, manage to squeeze out this piece of art and a few scrawled felt pen drawings of some other things which are far too messy and unpolished to show here.
In other news, Master of Fortresses has just hit 500 000 plays! I’d like to give a big thanks to the folks at Max Games, who were kind enough to back our game with their hard-earned cashey-money, and Kongregate, which has given us roughly 45% of our players. (Chris is also working on adding the API needed should they give us badges in the future) Of course, the biggest thanks goes out to you folks, our constantly growing (I hope) fanbase, who have played MoF and have been good enough to offer suggestions on how we might improve a second effort. Just a reminder that we have both been keeping tabs on the various comment threads, and we are squirreling some of those ideas away for future use.
Lastly, I (Paul/Cataphrak) will be at Anime Evolution from Friday to Sunday. If you live in the Metro Vancouver area, and aren’t allergic to UBC (as many SFU students seem to be), then you might run into me there.
