Why was I gone? To sum the previous entry, I was in a car accident as a passenger.
So, whatcha' been doin'?
Resting and thinking mostly, driving my new car from place to place, thinking a lot about MW, mainly where it is, how far it's come and where it is going.
we've lost about a week of work on the game, which isnt that bad, but it will set us back some.
Given that I knew I had to get back into the swing of things, (and didin't really want to (starting is so hard =D)) I decided to try somthing more fun for starters.
I am currently working on the MW Intro movie and the credits movie, and the company logo movie.
So far it is going well, I am preparing the music tracks for use, and storyboarding the intro.
The intro will introduce(heh, image that...) the player to the history of the Leowyn people (starting all the way back to the time of Garran Leowyn, and his escape from the eastern lands), through the finding of the mana well and the attack on castle Iridine, and finally to the (supposed) destruction of the Ashidian nation, and the Leowyn's fall into darkness and finally unenlightenment.
It will be portrayed via hand-drawn black and white frames, done by M.J. Chaput, and the dialogue will be 'floating text' much like we use in-game.
With luck I can give it some good magnitude and provide a nice smooth transition into the game.
