As you can see, there have been a few changes here on the old webpage. There are a few reasons for that. First off, we decided we wanted to make things a bit cleaner and more streamlined than the old page. It was starting to feel a bit clunky and unfocused. Secondly, we were having some issues with the previous server; so we decided to get with the times and become part of the SquareSpace family! We feel very fancy.
In addition to a new website we are making significant progress on Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars. I (Zack) have been overhauling certain puzzle sections in the game, writing dialogue, tweaking animations, making sure the flow is feeling more and more natural as you progress through the game/story-arc, and building out cinematics. Josh has been cranking out new inventory icons, vectorizing a ton of character skins, and writing lots and lots of cool lore that you'll be able to read and immerse yourself in.
In addition to that, we have started to get the first pieces of music from our good buddy Chad Seiter in the game! I love this part of the process...it's when the game really starts to feel like it has its own voice and soul. I'm very, very excited to have my friend on board for this journey and I'm excited for all of YOU to hear what he comes up with!
There's still plenty to do before we actually release this sucker, but the game is becoming more and more fleshed out everyday. We can't wait for you to play it!
In other news, I've really been enjoying the Game Maker's Toolkit videos by Mark Brown on YouTube. I highly recommend checking out Mark's videos. They are well-informed, well-produced, make you think, and just a joy to watch. In fact, this is a fairly relevant one for our little project! Check it out:
