And now we wait…

After a crunch week we have finally completed the submission for SGA. This include a demo of the game (internally “Beta 5″), a promotional video and a short user’s manual. We in the team are really proud of the demo, the game really improved this week. We would also like to thank those of you that have helped us during the week testing the game, you know who you are, thank you!

If you are interested in playing we are sorry to say that we will not release the game or beta of it until after the SGA final (June 2). More information about a release will come. In the meantime we have a little something for you, I have uploaded a few new screenshots of the game and also some concept art under the Media section. But a picture dosen’t really tell everthing so you can also get the promotional video (encoded with Xvid, about 100MB)!

We are now waiting for June 2 and we promise your wait will not be that much longer… See you on an asteroid in a near future!

Crunch time

The core team (Daniel Carlsson, Henning Tegen and Daniel Wikell) have now gathered at Hennings home for a intense week of work. We will submit our game to Swedish Game Awards (SGA) so lots of stuff needs to be done or polished. You can say that the game is in closed beta now and we are getting closer to a open beta. If you want to try our game, let us know, we might need a few testers the next few days. Also a crowded server with players for recording material to the video that we are going to submit to SGA won’t hurt :).

Sound!

Sound effects havn’t been the strong side in Celestial Impact, in fact, it hasn’t been there at all. But finally we got some really good work done by our newest teammember: Patrick Aleite! He got some great music and sound effects in the works and this was something we lacked skills and time for so thank you and welcome to the team Patrick.
