October 6, 2016 - Wispfire

Howdy!

Sorry for the slight delay! We had a very busy week, and it involved showcasing at events, releasing a new trailer, giving a talk about diversity, releasing another trailer and preparing for the next event!

So, to start off, we have a new trailer!

We'll be introducing the entire cast of Herald in the coming weeks. The first cast intro is already online:

~*~*~Backer Portraits~*~*~

We finished all the backer portraits. A big thanks to Lake, Matlock, Shai, Joshua and Wim for their support. We were humbled by your contributions!












All of these portraits will be placed in the game, somewhere on board of the Herald...

~*~*~Events~*~*~

Past week we showcased at INDIGO 2016, an indie game showcase in Utrecht. It was very busy, and we met a lot of students eager to do an internship at our office.

Our lead writer, Roy van der Schilden, also gave a talk about diversity in game design at Control Conference, the day after.



Joined by Sherida Halatoe (Beyond Eyes) and Rami Ismail (Vlambeer) we discussed the many angles of promoting diversity in the games industry. It was especially interesting to chat with filmmakers who were also present.

Upcoming weekend we will also be showcasing at Firstlook Festival, the biggest gaming event in the Netherlands. When we showcased last year, it was a great succes. We'll also be bringing our super huge banner with us:




~*~*~Beta~*~*~

Due to all the overwhelming amount of stuff going on this week the beta ended up a little delayed. We're planning to have it playable by Friday, and will probably launch it around that time. But for now, let us introduce you to the HLV Herald's newest passengers:





~*~*~Shoutout~*~*~

This month, were doing two shout-outs:



The Uncertain is an episodic story-driven adventure game set in a world were mankind has long gone extinct but robots are still up and about. It's got point & click gameplay, moral choices and an interesting concept. We like it.



Virginia is a single-player first-person thriller set in a small town with a secret. Experience a missing person investigation through the eyes of graduate FBI agent Anne Tarver. It's very light on the gameplay, but heavy on the mood and storytelling. Check it out if you're interested in something little different from the norm.

Cheers,

The Wispfire Team
