Freedom Planet
Incoming Artwork! Incoming Aliens!
March 15, 2013 - GalaxyTrail

You may have noticed that our thumbnail for the game is different now[gashi-gashi.deviantart.com]. We've commissioned a talented game artist to help us pump out some cool Japanese-styled artwork. We also feel that we've been giving the heroines way too much attention, so over the next few weeks, we're going to put more focus on the villains and give them the spotlight they deserve!

_____________________________

The reason we've focused so much on the three female protagonists is because there hasn't been much else to focus on, but development marches forward! The game's story is shaping up very nicely, and we're finally ready to start illustrating the villains and supporting characters along with some of the more exotic locations in the world of Avalice. So, we'll be able to share more content with you soon!

In addition to box art and graphic design, we are now actively working with our sprite artists. Once we have enough artwork cleaned up, we'll post mockups to make sure that we're going in the right direction for our fans and backers. Afterall, your generosity made it possible for us to hire artists in the first place! Suffice to say, you'll start to see some major graphical changes within a few months.

Our thanks goes out once again to everyone who upvoted us and continues to support us!

I still like the previous artwork, but the new one is still great piece of content. It is very unique at it is great on it's own merit. Grats for the artist.

One note... What I REALLY liked in previous art and dislike in new is a game logo. Not only I liked the old style more, but also the font size, color and shape make it had to distinguish/notice/understand.

Anyway. Keep on and Good Luck!

Okay cool. :) Thanks.

Edit: Sorry about this, but do you have a link to said dev forum? I cannot find it on your main site or the game's site. :(

ジェネシス - Those who donated through Paypal are backers, so they will get to see all of the backer-exclusive updates as long as they register on our dev forum. :)

I am glad the changes only effect the promotional side of things.

I can fully appreciate wanting to please backers but when you say backers, do you mean only the kickstarter ones or are you inclusing those that also donated through paypal?

I'll echo some of the mentions in the SonicRetro thread about the "boob-and-butt" pose for Lilac being a little off, but otherwise, I love it! I like the idea of having, at the least, different styles of artwork, and I'm glad to see different interpretations of the characters you guys have created.

Glad to hear the villians getting some more spotlight too, I can't wait to see what you guys have for the future. :)
