telling the time

wow.. a long week. I've built a first draft geometry for the game world, as well as adding in a swarm directional indicator (they can form arrows to direct the player now) and a time of day simulation, so that you get a sense of night turning into day. Screenshots? Oh go on then...

and then there was sound

Oh dear, a little while since my last blog entry. The main news is that the sound recording for the game has been done. These sounds ranged from wind and twig snaps to the full soundtrack. Musically the game features a really cool accoustic sound, courtesy of Andrew Gordon on Guitar and Keith Trebble on Trombone. I'm currently processing and editing the theme they recorded, and that will form the soundtrack on my next demo video (probably online in about a week, and hopefully with better image quality than before).

Special thanks to Sharon Knight, who has voiced the many grunts and jumps of the boy.

More soon...
