I watch the whole video hoping for a sneak peek at what the end result might look like on screen. . When do we get to see a bit of the game.

I skipped to the end to try and see that too. It kind of feels the first thing you should of shown in the video. No gameplay left me thinking whats the point, no game to wow me. The other people who have done that type of game generally get the wow factor by showing gameplay. I really love the claymation games.

Hi gang! I understand your comments, for sure. Getting the BIG WOW right off the bat is rather common, I suppose. My intention with these posts is to offer up glimpses into our production process as it unfolds, for those who may be interested. These are just early teases placed in the Developer Discussion forums, and as we get further down the production process, you’ll get to see our game come to fruition as it happens. If the chronicled approach is not your cup of tea, I apologize for any time wasted. We’ll post in the Upcoming Games sections when the time is right, but for now we’re just trying to share a little fun and insight.
And as always, thanks for your time everyone!

I have no problem with development blogging! I do it all the time, just title it that way. I encourage development blogs, they are good for so many reasons.

The term "early tease" created an expectation that you failed to meet because you didn't really tease anything.

I agree it's pretty cool to see the whole development progress.

Looks great. Really like the patent troll suitcase. I have to agree though, when you said tease, I usually think some footage or visuals from the actual game. Looking forward to see more

Video looks great, I love the fact that it gives enough time and respect to every details you highlight. Subconsciously everyone wants to see some gameplay etc, but you here provide a rare chance to get on board of the journey of making a first game, and that is very exciting. Would be cool to know about the studio, where is it, is it Earth, if yes where on Earth, is it Canada? USA? ;-)

Honestly I can’t wait for a new video. I want to know where is all heading )

Default When Pigs Fly: dev videos

This is not a tease. (Think Magritte.)

Hello again everyone!
When Pigs Fly video #2 is now ready and waiting to bore you to death.

BE FOREWARNED:
This thing is OVER 10 MINUTES LONG!
No gameplay yet.
Lots of pretentious conceptual blabbing over footage of stop motion photography, some frame by frame pencil animation, and even some dangerous knife wielding.

Special guests include Mecha-G, the anonymous banana, and a brief poetry reading by The Unauthorized Ryan Gosling Notebook!

Here’s the link:
http://youtu.be/-TPDpFtOgzU

Thank you all for your time and your support!
More on the way after the new year.

Default When Pigs Fly: dev video #3

Hello again fillies and fellas!

This is our 3rd dev video for the upcoming game When Pigs Fly.

In this episode, we construct the stage and set pieces for the load screen and title page, along the way we introduce you to the talented, brilliant, and beautiful Seda, cofounder of Blind Albino Studios, and I have a silly 2 hour panic due to my inexperience with sprite sheets in Unity.

No gameplay yet, but we are getting very close my friends! In our next video we hope to introduce you to our great programmer Jon, and (finally!) give you all some early gameplay footage!

As always, thank you all so much for the love and support. We’ve gotten more encouragement than we ever could have hoped for, and it is truly, deeply appreciated my friends.

Much love to the dev communities!
Sincerely,
Matt Woods
Cofounder/Art Director Blind Albino Studios
