    Yikes. Triple post. Been a while since I posted updates on here.

    Sorry for the lack of a test build. I've been having a lot of local testing events and each one kind of ripples out to "I want to fix this for the next build." Real easy way to lose track of time.
     
    Here's some latest WIP shots:


     

     

     
    I've got Nerve down for testing. Anyone else curious to participate?
     
    Also, I'll be bringing a build for playtesting at IndieCade East. The timeslot I have been given is between 4PM and 6PM on Saturday, Feb. 15th.

    So one of the (few) good things to come out of the VGX show was this. Really came out of nowhere, but it looks awesome. I love the 1950/60s comic book-esque style of some of the art. Also - Dune references = <3

    ...it's not in that universe. It's inspired from it. We aren't allowed to do games in worlds with human-like artificiality?

    It's a common theme for a lot of media. See: Natural City, Deus Ex: HR, A.I., Remember Me, I, Robot. Even Blade Runner is inspired from a book - Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

    Just because the themes are similar doesn't mean you have to get IP licenses. None of the characters, locations, devices, objects or even story arc is being used from any film or book, including Blade Runner.

    You work for a government agency that is inherently surveillance obsessed and you use a cremation-urn shaped device to digitally destroy a victim (which you hide in their apartment). You investigate and trap - you aren't a bounty hunter by any means.

    I'm confused as to why you don't understand the difference between influence and based in a IP.

    Posted up a news article on IndieDB!
     

     
    This one is about the dystopian-esque vaporization device the player uses in order to erase confirmed artificials.

    Thank you, guys!
     
    Yeah, my main goal when I started this project months ago was to improve my existing skills and develop new ones, as well as developing a game in its entirety to overcome the challenges that usually exist in the process. Every kind of feedback is valuable, especially on my next projects
     
    It's funny how the game improved after I did some final polishing, implemented character animations, changed the main menu, added a soundtrack etc.
     
    A few of the animations of the main character in Grasp.
    "Nice to meet you!".
     

    (source: http://www.indiedb.com/games/grasp/images/character-animations)
     
    I'm so proud of what I achieved with this little pet project! What a fun ride it's been. So many things learned! I should release it soon.
    When I do, I would be über honoured if you all could play it. I have a gigantic boner respect and admiration for you guys and your craft, and finally I'll be able to put a full game in my portfolio, done all by myself (and many cups of coffee, tea, hazardous-combinations-of-fluids, substances that shall not be named here etc).
     
    I'm happy and I can't wait to publish it and move on to new and different challenges!
    Grasp will be published on Desura, for free (and possibly other places too...). I think it's a good idea to release it for free to enable anyone to play it instead of setting whatever price that might scare someone away.
     
    Therefore, my gains with Grasp will be completely intellectual and professional. Money is a consequence from my overall improvement and chance to work in something bigger and better, amirite?
     
    I'll post here when it gets released. Those temporary links are removed.

    Understandably, but I still give the feedback so Al Anselmo-Intelect0 knows what to consider as he starts his next project. My intention was to be as helpful as I possibly could.

    Hey guys. Been working on a project for a little while and decided to bring up the Indie DB page. It's basically the mix between Gone Home's environmental storytelling with a Phillip K. Dick/Blade Runner narrative.

    Still pretty early, but I'm hoping to get a video and a public/private testing build (basically, open to people who want to actively play test it here on Mapcore and a few other places) up in the next week or so.

    Huge fan of PKD, as if the game itself wasn't a tell. A few of the police agency devices/tactics were heavily inspired from A Scanner Darkly. Man in the High Castle has also been helpful in trying to create characters that feel at odds with the society they are in.
     
    I've started participating in #screenshotsaturday - an event where indie developers just post up WIP for that week. It's a nice little motivator to keep working each week so you have something new to show. Here's today's one:

     
    Thanks for the comments, guys. I appreciate it greatly.

    I feel Blade Runner in this one, which is fun because it's the movie/novel i was drawing a lot from -visually speaking- when I started writing a sci-fi novel years ago.
