Progress Report #4
Lip Sync with FaceFX
First I'd love to show you the progress we've made in regards to lip sync. Some of our older videos are definitely not good in fact they're a bit dreadful, but it's a new program for us so there's a learning curve and that's actually good news for you guys!

Here's a reminder of how our early lip sync tests were looking:

A lot of the issues were related to the Frankenstein character model we were using for development, it had a weird pac-man mouth and that gave the lip sync a kind of unflattering wakka wakka movement!

Now bringing our new model into FaceFX you can see things are getting much cleaner:

We've also taken on the critiques about the ursine voices from our fans; when you take time out of your day to leave us a comment we read them all and we do listen to what you want to see! Most people are probably expecting a very bearlike tank character when they think of ursines. Our approach has been to explore a variety of voices and characters to suit a wide range of players from assassins, to bards, to scholars! However, we are working with our actors to give their performances a bit more growl and we will be vigilant of anything that is immersion breaking.



Gameplay Features

We are quite stoked to show off some of the game play features we've been polishing up for Episode One, specifically the Decorator system and one of our innovative features, the Quick RP menu which gives players the ultimate control over their character and the environment! Have a look at these features in action and don't miss out on the 3D Mini Map!

But WHEN is it coming out?!?!

That's the big question right? We're getting to know each other so well. I really want to be completely transparent with you guys about our release schedule as we go so that you have the most up to date info on when it's coming and how you can grab a copy [more about free keys after this]

Currently we are still on schedule for a late summer release, somewhere around Aug 20 is our target, though we have quite a bit more to compile and polish; it could easily slide into Sept so a safer estimate would be sometime Q3 as a time frame. It's really hard to estimate timelines because most of us are not full time we have other jobs we have to work to pay the bills, Witanlore is currently unfunded so we have to make compromises. We are working VERY hard to get Episode One to Early access on time though. We want Dreamtime to be as feature complete as possible before we hit the digital shelf because it's important to us that our customers who buy into the Early Access copies get value for their money and plenty of gameplay to enjoy.

So, the answer to when is, probably late summer, very early fall. We will keep you updated to anything that may change that timeline.

How can I get free keys?

We would love to have our game generating some buzz in the media so we are giving away review copies of our game to journalists, content creators, YouTubers, etc. If you have an active channel, blog, column, etc and you're interested in playing an early copy of Witanlore: Dreamtime, shoot us an email at druidgameworks [at] gmail.com with a link to your beat and we'll add you to our list for review copies. Before we ship publicly, we'll send out these review copies for you to play, FREE!

Okay guys I think that's it for this update, hope you enjoyed! I will be posting another update soon and we have some plans in motion to do a world preview live on Twitch soon! Happy gaming!

@Dark side: Currently the only supported language is English. However, we do plan to localize the game into other languages once we raise more funds for professional localization

"That's good, Ursines don't consider themselves to be bears, they're people, with bear like qualities"

Just the bear necessities?

I'll show myself out.
