We've finally launched our Greenlight campaign. You can vote for us here
So the final name of Project Blind is OL: Lemniscate.
To be honest, we wanted to do a flashier reveal of the OL abbreviation's true meaning, but... it's not flashy. It stands for OuterLine. It's basically the universe which we have created that houses all of our game ideas (for now). So, due to financial constraints and to our limited experience with game development, it so happened that Lemniscate will be our first released game - after it got through Greenlight (so, please!).
We've also changed our team name to ExceptionGate, and changed the blog title accordingly. And created a new Facebook page. And now we're hoping our likers will slowly trickle over to it. wink wink
The last few weeks were a mess of trying to properly record footage from Unreal 4 and video editing. In the final days we chose to record footage with the built-in matinee recorder, but that makes gameplay really hard so there are some lower quality clips in the trailer from earlier screen recordings. Also, we're not good at trailers. (actually we've figured it out: it's magic, and we're muggles) We've managed to leave out most of the gameplay we've implemented from the video. We still hope it catches some people's eyes and makes them read the description and take a look at our gifs. Seriously, we're better at making gif posts.
Anyways... we're considering crowdfunding. We're short on money, and currently this project doesn't generate any profit. Using free software means we don't have to pay for licenses, but even with minimal expenses.. we have to eat something. The downside of crowdfunding is that taxes are ridiculous.
And now it's the middle of the night, so we're going to sleep. In the next few days, I'll sit back, relax and watch the votes flow in. Hopefully.
The new model for Lemniscate, of course, will fit right in with our previous works in our Sketchfab gallery. Such colorful and bouncy.... spaceship. Yeah.
