Hey folks! As some of you have heard, a major animated film for the game is now under way. Thought I'd post the news here as well, and here's the vlog with some more info c: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFxkSeQzD14
Points from the official press release:
-To the Moon's animated feature film project is now confirmed.
-It will be a collaborative project between Japan (main production) and China (main funding).
-First tier Japanese animation production companies are aboard (specifics to be announced in the coming future).
-The film project was made possible in partnership with Beijing's Ultron Event Horizon, whose CEO, Danyang Zhao, was responsible for bringing the animated film "Your Name" to China.
-Significant budget for the project has been cleared (quoted as somewhere above the budget for the production of Your Name, for reference).
-The original creator of To the Moon, Kan Gao, will play a part in the script editing/advising process.
-Freebird Games continues to create narrative-driven games with Kan fully committed. The production for the next Freebird game project has already begun, and is quoted to be 'quite bonkers.'
Thank you for being here, everyone. Honestly, things kind of caught me by surprise too. Lots of hectic times up ahead, but we'll try our hardest to make something worthwhile!
