Thought I'd post a few of David's concept sketches for creatures he's been modelling for Coldfire Keep. I think they're pretty neat, and it's a shame for them to go to waste.

Getting VERY close to finished on this thing now... pretty exciting stuff!

I finally got around to recording a little bit of gameplay footage for everyone to check out. Let me know your thoughts.

Note that this is just running on my Mac - hence the mouse pointer. iOS version is of course touch control.

Thanks! The character portraits (and most of the UI) are the work of David Hattori. He also did the creature modelling. Talented guy.

Definintely keeping most of the creatures to myself for now. I've tried my best to make them meaningful to the story and environment though with both "introduced", intelligent enemies, and "natural" enemies (like the Giant Rats) that would just inhabit this place.

As far as the size of the game, I just don't know yet, as I'm still building it. I basically have this idea of "Locations" rather than just "Levels", so you might visit locations called 8a, 8b, 8c which all exist on the same level but might be explored completely out of sequence because you could enter them from above, or below. Anyway, the point is that in the end I might have maybe 14-15 levels, but that will probably be close to 30 different locations (don't quote me on that, just made up figures).

Mind you, some of the locations are very small. If you saw that "Making Of" video I did, that was the complete 9b location, which could be explored in about 30 seconds.

Hey gepetto, are we going to have to randomly click every pixel to find secrets or are the spots we have to click going to stand out? The spots you click after tearing the banners in the video don't look like they stand out at all, and I don't know about you, but a game where I have to click every spot on the wall quickly gets shelved. Anyway game looks awesome, just hope it doesn't tun ino a wall clicking fest.
