After nearly four months toying with different art styles we have finally locked in the art style for Boom Town Empires city layouts. The new style not only looks pretty but also has a more concise pipeline, meaning it can be produced quicker. That can only be a good thing as we are over four months behind schedule and the game’s scope has increased.
Project Red (pictured above) has been shelved while Boom Town takes front seat in an aim to prepare the game for our first ever crowd funding campaign. We shall hopefully have a playable demo by early September and launch the crowd funding campaign by late September.
Also slightly delayed is the planned DLC for Drones, The Human Condition, which will arrive mid August. The DLC is in two parts and add a soundtrack, remixer pack and extend the ARG some clever gamers may have discovered.
To finish off, here are some of the other failed art styles we explored.
Until next time….
