BoomTown Art Style Locked In

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….

Chinese Android Market

The Chinese Android Market is huge and I will now attempt to release a game in the Chinese region. Right now work has started on changing the needed art assets and slowly translating the text. I will be using Google Translate, possibly the worse idea yet, but budget, time and man power dictate that to be the only viable option. Also it might make for some funny mistakes, for such a small game, I can live with this.

While doing my research I found a recent post stating Chinese officials now require all mobile games to feature only Simplified Chinese, No English at all.
