How have you guys been? We’ve been quite busy this past week (laughs).
Today, we’re going to talk about your villagers, and fellow neighbours! As we’ve finalized the design of at least the Cat species, we’ve started developing 4 kittens from the two cat prototypes we’ve shared with you previously.
We also gave the 4 of them unique personalities. These personalities were developed based on the western astrological signs. That means that each villager will have an actual birth date, and that will determine their sign. In return, their sign will determine their respective personality. This not only helps us develop unique personalities for the characters, with easily differentiable traits from one another, but also makes it easier for us to develop unique and interesting dialogues that won’t feel quite as repetitive as otherwise.
Here are the 4 cat characters we've developed. We hope you like them:
And yes, you will have your own astrological sign too! So, no need to feel jealous (laughs).
Don’t miss out our friend’s Twitch channel, Miercolez (you can check it out here https://www.twitch.tv/miercolez), tomorrow live at 9:30pm (UTC+00). As we’ve said in the last post, he’ll be the first playing the first build of the “Project SpaceVille” Insider Programme. If you like what you see, and haven’t signed up for the Insider Programme yet, there is still time to subscribe!
The Insider Programme will officially start for the public this next Friday, September 1st. Those of you who already signed up for the Programme will receive an email with instructions to download the first build of the game.
We’ll be celebrating the launch at this month’s Game Dev Meet @Porto with our fellow colleagues. It’s going to be great!
If you’ve already seen our past work, you may have noticed that we’ve developed an Android app for a Portuguese radio station, Radio Nove3Cinco. You can check it here : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.faxime.nove3cinco
As such, when thinking of how to expand the Insider community, we thought “Why not do a publicity spot in the radio? Just to see where it gets us.”. So, we’re still brainstorming on how the ad itself will play out. But what we do know we want for sure is that we want it to be fun, and be able to catch listeners’ attention.
Cya next week, guys! Be sure to subscribe to the Insider Programme!
