We hope you’re all doing well! The team is still working hard on the background systems of Externus: Path of the Solari and I think we’re at a point where we will see a lot of leaps forward in the next few months as we make our way toward ALPHA. For a little look at how far we’ve come since the very beginning, here is a short video of a VERY EARLY (we haven’t shown it before) build as a proof-of-concept to a more recent build of the game.
We Have More Art!
Moudy has been hard at work on both refining the animations for our characters and getting some close to final characters done for the game. Here is how Alrik Steele will look in the final game.
IGDA Indies Showcase
In case you missed it, we were able to be a part of the IGDA’s Indies Showcase hosted by Will Overgard (twitch.tv/viking_blonde). I (Trevor) went on to talk about the game and you can watch the replay below. We have timestamped the link to where the half-hour of Externus starts but we encourage you to check out the whole show as there were some really cool indie games showcased.
Join Us On Discord
Finally, I just want to remind everyone to join us on our Discord channel as we’re looking to grow the community. Be sure to share the link with your friends and tell them about the game. We appreciate all your support and are thankful to those who have been interacting with us in the Discord channel so far. We’re also taking questions for the podcast in our Ask A Question channel and you can ask us anything you wish and we’ll talk about them on a future episode of the podcast. The podcast will return soon, we’ve been holding off recording for a few weeks just to give the team some time to focus more on the game so get your questions in and we’ll answer them in the coming weeks!
