Weekly Update #61: The Twitch Session Official Date

Read it on the forum

Hello everybody,

This week we continued working on the game, mostly on technical fixes. Some in-game animations, triggered when Norn do specific actions (watering a plant, playing with a toy…) were broken and the issue was more important than we thought (we had to fix the system handling animations, and not animations themselves).

Most importantly, the date for the Twitch session is finally set! Sorry about the delay… It will take place December, Thursday 11th at 8PM CET. For information, Central European Time corresponds to GMT+1:00.

Have a nice week and see you Thursday on Twitch!

Weekly Update #59: Twitch news and debugging

Read it on the forum

Hello everybody,

Last week we still did mainly some debug. It was actually various tasks, also different as for workload (some of them required the modifications of few lines of code, while others took longer…) :
- Fixed some invisible sprites
- Resized some textures to fix assets compilation
- Fixes related to updates in the light manager (handling the lights in-game)
- Fixed preload called twice
- …

We also reviewed some item kit products and the descriptions of some chemicals.

Lastly… I am going to have some holidays, from Halloween to the 17th of November, so there will be no weekly update during this time. However, as soon I am back, I should be able to announce you the definitive date about the Twitch session Sophie talked about some weeks ago. As for now, we know it will be during the first week of December.

Have a nice week!


See you next time and (a bit in advance) happy Halloween!

Penguin and cactus cross the border and work together

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Penguin and cactus cross the border separating them and work together on the video game Canteen Monsters.

This Tower Defense will be divided in two complementary games (one on PC and one on mobile phone) but in a common universe: a primary school that we must defend from the invasion of wacky monsters out of the bottom of the canteen.

Canteen Monsters is intended by its original concept: it offers an experience on two complementary platforms that allows the player to share his winnings from a game to another.

The project won at the “Interactive Experience Transrégional” organized by Pictanovo and Wallimage, intending thereby to promote and encourage collaborations between the Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Wallonia.

Algo-Bot: 24 hours to succeed

Monday, July 7th, 2014

vignetteHi Folks!

The moment you’ve been waiting for has come. Algo-Bot hits Kickstarter for the second time this year and we have 24 hours to do better than the last time.

What?! 24h? But this Kickstarter will run during 30 days!

YES, that’s true but based on our observations we know that we less than 2 days to get as much backers as we can. Because Kickstarter is not about money but about backers! Backers are the key! So, every backer helps even if you back a single little dollar!

You don’t want to back our project? That’s just fine! Maybe you could share it around you and let potential backers the possibility to discover the game. Here’s a short list of what you can do to help us. Do what you want but please, do something :-)

 

  1. Back the game
  2. Watch the video entirely to increase our stats
  3. Share the page a lot on Twitter, Facebook and G+

Hello everybody,

With the closed beta incoming, we had a lot of things to prepare and it took us most of our week. That’s why this will be a small update!

However, we still managed to :
- update the localization file with some new entries
- fix some arrows displayed as default textures in the world monitor
- do a small improvement of our backsave system

Is your teen safe on social networks?

Master F.I.N.D, the game we developed with Child Focus is the right tool to show him the dangers of social networking.

If used safely, social networking sites lets teens keep in touch with their friends and helps them express themselves. Our game is meant to help them understand the importance of keeping a bit of privacy and setting up properly their confidentiality settings. 

In this investigation game, your teens will play a web-detective and fight the cyber criminality. They will have to join a group of detectives from the F.I.N.D and infiltrate e-Talk (a Facebook-like network) to find clues, analyze them and use high tech super powers that will help support complex investigations and solve the most serious crimes.
