Thanks for all the kind words guys, it's really motivating to see people interested
I'm going to be submitting to the IGF this Sunday, making sure I don't miss the deadline in some obscure way. Excited, terrified and all those other cool things. Just hoping that people/press are interested in it if they stumble across it in the lists! And of course fingers crossed for the judges liking it too
Nervous, don't know what to expect from it, but excited, can't wait for some people to see it.
I'll post some good ol' screenshot saturday pics tomorrow, and either saturday or sunday I'll put up a new vid. Mostly to show off some of the polish, a bit more of the game to tease with, and more of the first area which is pretty green. Green green green. Comparing the current version to old pics, makes the older ones seem a bit bare, added more decay and such recently and it's a nice improvement. Also lots of sound effects, mainly material based footstep stuff which I have a nerdboner over.
Today I threw together some splashy stuff when you walk through water + noise and it turned out okay! There will be some of this in the video to check out, would appreciate some feedback on it but I'll ask again when I post it.
Actually here's one of the shots for screenshot saturday, more of the same sort of stuff but thought it was pretty cool:
