Hey Backers! We trust that 2019 was good to you, and we look forward to a 2020 filled with adventure games - notably Beautiful Desolation! VOICE ACTING We've amassed a talent pool of AMAZING artists that have lent their voices to this game. Julian Casey (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0143456/) has voiced Mark. He's best known for his roles in Far Cry and the Assassin's Creed series. Joining him are our usual veterans, Ryan and Glen Copper, as well as Sarah Williams (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Anne_Williams) from Final Fantasy, Persona 5 and Skullgirls. Ian Cullen ( http://www.iancullen.co.za/about-me/), a prominent South African voice actor, plays Don. The voice production has taken several months but is now complete and in the game! Listen here (Click PLAY): WIDE SCREEN 21:9 SUPPORT Desolation will support native Ultra Wide Monitors. It does look pretty darn, cool at 2560 x 1080px. We'll also support 16:9 and 16:10. (CLICK IMAGES FOR LARGER VIEW) LOCALIZATION Roboto (https://roboto.global/games-localisation/) is working on the translation of Beautiful Desolation into Russian, German and French. More languages may be added once the game is released and we'd then seek partners to this end, as we did with STASIS. The translation process was built to be as simple as possible, and can be edited as an Excel Spreadsheet if needed, so we hope fans will also aid further translation! INSTAGRAM Be sure to follow us
As we’re now slap-dab in the middle of Q4 and haven't released Beautiful Desolation yet, you may be scratching your heads asking, where is this game?! Fear not! As we mentioned in the last update, we’re in the final stages of getting this project out of the door and into your hands. The adventure game is now complete and playable from start to end. Woohoo! Currently the voice actors are wrapping up their incredible performances. With over 50 fully voiced characters and 1000s of lines, you can imagine this is a lot of admin to navigate. Most voice files are in our hands, and it’s our Mark’s character lines that are currently being recorded. We have well-known South African, Ian Cullen, voicing Don, and as for Mark
I'm sure you've heard of game development "crunch time"? Well, Nic and I are crunching away. Grey, wintery days here in SA are great for productivity, I can assure you. We like to joke that we can see the light peaking through the forest (ever so slightly) at the end of this long journey. Behold a few screenshots:
We have unchained ourselves from our desks to bring you a quick update on our progress with BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION. While Nic continues to implement the events in the game I have been detailing and creating the cinematic videos that appear throughout the adventure. These videos will be fully voiced, and using facial capture, we hope to bring the characters to life.
