Well, not really! I've moved everything to the DevLog forum, so please head on over and follow the game there. Your feedback is much appreciated!  Beg

Thanks guys, I'll be sure to post more stuff as it comes in and when things are a bit more polished.

I actually found Tim in an old thread (lurking, I know) on wayofthepixel.net, and contacted him through looking for his username online. Here is his portfolio: http://paiku.weebly.com/index.html


Also, Gabriel. It's dedicated to you, you didn't know?  Well, hello there!

Oh, haha. It's just that they're so big that I don't want scrolling images on the thread. Unless there's a way to embed a set size?

Code:
[url=http://www.example.com/image.png]
[img height=300 width=300]http://www.example.com/image.png[/img]
[/url]
This will give you an image scaled to set dimensions, contained within a link to the full sized image. Or you can drop the url tags and just display the image.

Setting both dimensions will stretch the image if the proportions don't match. Setting just one will scale the other proportionately.

Updated!

There's a ton of new songs and some art as well. We are also in the process of creating a website to put all of this plus some more information. Please leave your feedback, support is a real motivator!


 @biomechanic

Thanks for much for the code. However, is there any way to align thumbnails horizontally? I want to avoid making a huge vertical list of images leaving the edges blank. Too much scrolling that way.



Thanks everyone! :D

You should be able to use table tags to align images, it's not ideal but it's functional.

Beautiful visuals, just great.

Hi guys!

I haven't updated this thread in a while, though I will in the near future so be sure to keep an eye out.

The reason for this post is to ask for some assistance. We are looking for two more people to help out with the game, and if you're willing and wanting to join us, please let me know either here or email: [email protected].

Before you read the positions, let me be clear that these are not paid positions. In fact, as this is a portfolio driven project, nobody is or has been paid during our time developing together over the last year. Although that might not be appealing, I hope it helps you realize we are still taking this very seriously and will do everything we can to ensure it is completed. Considering we are an international collaboration, it's pretty exciting! Gentleman


Developer FILLED
As the core game engine is pretty much complete, we are moving onto developing the game editors (map, scripting, etc.). In order to balance the load off our one (amazing) developer, we are looking for someone to assist him under his direction.

Since the editors can be made separately and then integrated into the Novus Dawn structure, this makes for a perfect opportunity to get caught up and involved.


UI Designer FILLED
We're in need of someone who can visually design the UI necessary for the game (buttons, overlays, etc) so that we can use them as test assets within the game engine and give feedback and so on.

Not only will this allow us to figure out what exactly we need and what works, it will also save Tim (pixel artist) from spending time creating them and having to make changes, if we first finalize a concept.



So yeah!

Let me know if you're interested. If you want to just talk, feel free to email too, I like talking - about this game, or whatever is on your mind.  Waaagh!

We filled our positions! Thanks for everyone who emailed me, it's appreciated.

FILLED
However, we have opened up a new spot on the project and this one is going to be a tough one. We're looking for a pixel artist to help balance the load for our other artist, Tim. As he is back in school for game development (fitting!), he is having trouble keeping up with the amount of work needed.

So, we've decided to let him focus on sprite animation and we will look for someone else to handle the tilesheets for the game. Here's a little information about the role:

1. Required to pixel in the isometric perspective.
2. Able to produce a consistent look with the already existing tile sheets.

3. Payment is negotiable - we can discuss this via email.


And that's about it! Thanks a lot everyone.  Grin

As always, any feedback and questions are welcomed.

We have successfully (phew Epileptic) found a pixel artist to take on the secondary role. We are now a 10 person team of online collaborators.

Truly exciting what the Internet can do. We would love to hear any comments or questions you guys have about the project. I'll be updating the thread with new content soon once we get a few more entries in. I know it's long overdue, hehe.

Thanks!

Hey, REALLY impressed with your stuff so far. The engine looks like it runs at a decent clip and the graphic / sound of course are really nice.

Is the engine 100% original? Does it build off of flixel or any other AS3 framework?

Also, in terms of gameplay, are you doing anything new with the tactical RPG formula?

Looking forward to what you guys do with this!

Thanks for the kind compliments!

The game will play much like a traditional tactical RPG. That's primarily due to the fact the game was pretty ambitious to start out with and we don't want to overdo it considering 8/10 team members have never worked on a game before.  WTF

That said, we do have some relatively unique mechanics in how you can use skills and combos (with other characters) that utilize a different take on MP. Each unit can only hold 5MP which they can use to allocate towards using a skill/combo. The more MP you use, the better the skill is and sometimes results in bonuses like bleed or critical hits. MP is earned in a variety of ways including a random chance as the start of the units turn, or killing an enemy unit.


I'll be closing this thread though since we found everyone needed. I'll be moving everything to a new thread on the devLog forums where I'll update with new content there and write about the game, it's history and the sort of pitfalls we face as an international collaboration.

Thanks! :D
