Usually, updates are posted on our website. But sometimes we're gonna share parts of our work with you here to get instant feedback and criticisms (hey, seriously: aren't you gonna criticize our sprites? I mean, they're soooo cute  ;D ).

As stated on the webpage, any semiprofessional pixel artist with a good knowledge of Star Wars who's interested in helping with sprite animation can be considered to join our team. This adventure MUST come through, I promised myself some years ago.
It was first envisioned in 1989 after playing Indy Last Crusade and later took the form of Shadows of the Empire, as an unofficial (but absolutley faithful) adaptation of that adventurous and amusing story. Now, after 15 years, and thanks to Chris Jones's magic tool, the dream can come true. A motivated team has been formed and we're determined to face the hard work.
Now if you'll excuse me, there are a couple of backgrounds I must finish...

If you want feedback and criticisms on the sprites (or any artwork) post it in the Critics Lounge.

This thread (board) is just for keeping people up to date on the progress of the game you're working on!

It's good to know you're still working on this.  I am a huge Star Wars fan ... if I had more time I'd definately help.  But I'm sorry ... I just don't have the time. :(

But still ... keep it up!  I like what you've got so far.

Still working on it? You can count on it, Dark Lord ;)
We're not gonna give up. The Force is definitely with us; it's the Force of the love for Star Wars and for classic graphic adventures. Seeing the two thing merge together is a dream we want to realize. LucasArts never did it; we must assume they weren't interested in doing it since adventures cease to be a commercially profitable game genre. Well, let's do it by ourselves, as a no-profit unofficial fangame.

Although only 40 backgrounds have been completed and the work on the sprites is at an early phase, we go on tirelessly.

From what I've seen so far I can't criticize you in any way. But I just got big expectations about your game  ::)..

Happy you like them, but you're not gonna see *that much* in the upcoming tech demo; there will not be so many locations. By its own nature, it's only an early technical demonstration set up to show the engine, with three or four rooms, a few dedicated puzzles and a funny tutorial for the interface.
It definitely contains a massive dose of pure nonsense, far more than the real finished game, which still will be filled with humour (ranging from the tone of Beneath a Steel Sky, serious and funny at the same time, to some "Monkey" moments).

Just a little update to show you some of our work in preparation for the SOTE Tech Demo we're gonna release soon. We plan to complete the demo for Halloween for a group of playtesters: if you want to help us testing it please write to dsgames@guerrestellari.net. One week later the demo will be publicly released.

This is an animation of Luke Skywalker -in his Shadows of the Empire outfit- walking in side view.

well, if you imagine that his hand is not a fist, but out, and you were to put it to his face, then i would say that his hand covers his face, which would mean to me that at least his hands and head are in proportion.

wonderful animation. it has its own style. its odd to look at. the hands look sooo real. very nice subtle movements all around. for something so detailed, it was needed.

Ah, I see a demo coming up. That great, I'm wondering can you give us a progress report or what is being done and add that to your original post (First one)?

The original post will be updated soon with an "official"  Tech Demo announcement,  we have to decide a pair of things about it first :)

By the way, talking about progress, my scripting proceeds slowly but well, BobaFonts is ultimating the Luke and R2 sprites and the objects/items needed for the demo, and Prof Epic, who tries to apper too busy to post here :D, is reviewing the demo "script" based on a completely fool idea we decided all together to base the demo on, a night on IRC...

Yeah the body isn't completely proportioned. His head and hands are the right size, but I think he needs to have more weight personally. Luke was sort of built in Empire Strikes back and this game takes place after...

What?! Pal, "you disappoint me". It's just... well... ok, I'm too busy to be busy!
 
BTW, I am a member of the team and I will be the writer of many texts of SOTE, too (check our page for details :)) . In these days, i'm (errr... slowly) working on a final synopsis for the tech demo (with the certain help of Master BobaFonts and Dusk  :=). If the dialogues are bad, you will know who is the responsible  :P.

No kidding: thanks to all of you, for your support and kind words. :)
