Internal Video Footage

Postby Consultant » Sat Mar 30, 2019 6:28 am

We plan to send out a newsletter this weekend with an example of internal video footage. We did put a little music to it, but again, the point of trying this is to show footage that we did not script, did not edit, and did not plan in a real sense. If this works we can do more of it.

I know everyone understands those words that I just wrote. But so far almost every member of the dev team has told us "yes, that's a great idea" when they heard publishing internal footage, and then immediate said things like "why are we showing the robot? Can't we get some FX into this video? Let's shoot the whole thing in Science Park."

So even we, your devs, have issues with just releasing internal footage. We're all perfectionists, and we'd like every video to be a finely crafted production. But that's not the idea here. The idea is to supplement the scripted videos with occasional internal footage videos so that all of you can see what's happening. It's a sort of cooks tour of the development process.

So we'll see if this flies. I'm sure we'll get comments. :)

I like the robot.

I was just disappointed that he isn't dancing this time. :D

Any video Is a good video! I get very excited at any sort of update. More the merrier. And I like the idea of the unscripted videos, because I assume they take less time to make. Which means more time to spend on creating this game.

You are exactly right -- unscripted means more time for game development.

But I was wrong on something -- we'll launch the video and a newsletter with it tomorrow (Monday) and not today. One of our key guys for the newsletters is taking a break with his son (Father/ son time is always a priority) and returns to work on Monday.

We're targeting about 11 eastern on Monday for release.

So you're saying I should stop pounding the F5 key for a while?

I was just told that I need to actually say this, but yes we are publishing a video today and no, it is NOT an April Fools Day joke.

On another note, no, we are not establishing a nudist guild option in the game.

We are not changing the name of the game to Ship of Unobtanium.

And we are not taking the ship through a wormhole and tethering it over 1970's Detroit.

We actually sort of play it straight. That's how we roll.

But enjoy the day and the video. :)

* Compass Rosette is a WIP, correct?

* Love the grittiness of the ship wall like building blocks made of mined asteroidal material.

* Distance Blur looks perfect to me. OMG the Night is real!

* I think that we can all wait on animation and lighting for the cross walk signs, after release update.

Overall IMO the city itself will have a Newer COH City feel to it.

:shock: This being April 1… That means we are

Going to establish a nudist guild option for the game; and

we are changing the name of the game to Ship of Unobtainium;

And the ship will be hovering over Detroit of the 1970’. This one actually makes sense - It explains so much from back then. I wonder if we’ll get a cameo from Dan Aykroyd as Dr. Detroit.

Looks truly amazing. And while I want to see more I'm willing to wait. Many companies set the bar too low by just putting things out to get them out and a few wait until things are up to or surpassing there own standards. It's worth the wait. But I'm not about to say no to a teaser once and a while. :D
