Hey everybody, I know it’s been a while since an update and I wanted to put something out there. I had a really busy summer, and although I had fun spending time with my family, I have not had the time to dedicate to Knight Guy. In addition to this, as I near a state of maturity in the project I am looking forward at marketing options. Making the trailer is part of it, creating a successful crowdfunding campaign and pushing social media awareness in an effective manner. I am still working diligently on a trailer for Knight Guy, video editing is very new to me, and it is not easy. I am still working at it nonetheless. I was really hoping to have Knight Guy out by now, but now I am going to take a little more time and really focus on creating a better game. I am adding some quality of life features, like a stats scree to track your kills and playtime, and I will be adding a few bonus levels to occupy some time before story mode is finished. I want to thank everyone for their patients, I work full time and it will not be an easy task to create a game on the side but I am in this and Knight Guy is still coming. Thank you all for the support.
So lately, I’ve been brainstorming how to put together an interesting trailer. Yes, of course it’s going to feature game play, but how do I introduce it to the audience? More over how do I do this in an interesting and captivating way?
My final solution takes me far away from the pixel art I am used to working with into a new medium, I am modeling a 3d room, with a retro video game set up. I will create a short animation, showing that Knight Guy is built on the fundamentals of recapturing these great games. This is unfamiliar territory for me, so it is a work in progress and I am learning as I go.
One cool thing I was able to do was add some posters for a few local bands. Glad to feature and support Let Us Chant and Cottonwood Creek in my work. Making this trailer is going to take a little longer than I expected, but it will be awesome and hopefully a lot of fun to watch and share.
Thank you for reading, don’t forget to pick up a T-shirt from the store to support the cause!
A few lucky people have been added to my short list of Knight Guy alpha testers. I am hoping that after a long break, I can detect and eliminate any bugs with the core game play prior to making a trailer or continuing work on the story. Once Arcade mode is at a place that I am happy with it I think I might move forward with a crowd funding campaign. The biggest cost associated with Knight Guy at the moment is time, and the more time I can step away from work, the faster and better I can develop it. Above and beyond that there are additional costs associated with development for ios, so just remember if you donate, or buy a shirt those are the types of things the money goes towards. If you’d like to support the project in other ways, you can always share us on social media, and tell your friends about us. Thank you all, I appreciate the support.
Hey everyone, it’s been a crazy week for me. One cool thing I noticed is that I was starting to get a lot more web traffic. Thanks to all of you of course. So in light of this new information, I’ve added a new section to the website called Games. Right now this section only displays information on Knight Guy, since that is our only project, but in the future will be a list of all of our games and an easy way for you, our good friends and soon to be friends to discover great games.
