Heh, thanks guys, tho it's a bit late for me to reply.

The running will be fixed. In fact, it already has been fixed. The intro will be re-done when the entire game is finished,  as I am using better methods of modeling and stuff to make things look better and more realistic.

Anyone who wants to Beta can get a free copy of the game on CD-ROM (no shipping either), but the catch: fill out a survey, AND give a detailed description of what you thought was good, bad, needed work, was perfect/fine, etc. Then, you'll be added to the ending credits of the game! :D

i'm going for realism with this game. If you noticed, the intro is mostly still shots where closeups are concerned. This will not be the case with later cutscenes and the re-made intro. You'll see. ;) It will ROCK!!

I'd be in to beta test, if you'd be willing to let me.  Your game looks really cool.  The intro graphics are great, especially the close up rendered faces which blew me away.  Best of luck  :D

Thanks again, guys. ;D

Anybody who says they're in will receive an email whenever the game is done. Make sure your email is in your profile. :)

NOTE: Anybody who replies in this thread with an affirmation that they wish to be a beta tester, will get an email, and then a free copy of BtS on CD when it comes. I expect the release date to be sometime this summer or fall.

Well, you've probably got enough of them now, but if there's room for one more, I'd love to be a beta tester... ;D

Well I think that's plenty. :) Thanks everybody! I will send out emails when the game is finished. Just make sure either your email is visible in your profile, or in your post above.

I'm seriously debating whether to release the first Chapter as a demo, but even that will be too huge to upload (and for others to download). Maybe just more screenshots! ;D

So, I bet you thought this had faded away into oblivion, eh? Well GUESS AGAIN! No...guess again... uh...guess--- BAH!

So here are my full plans with this thing. Right now, I am nearing the end of Chapter One (out of 6 chapters), and am planning to release Chapter 1 as a fully playable demo (a mini-game actually) once it's done, which should be SOOON. Then it's on to the rest of the game. :P

It's already at 70 MB compiled, so I'm pretty sure the full version will be released onto CD. I have decided on a price: $10 (USD).

But that's not all! For an extra $5 I can include a Bonus Disc with extra features, such as audio commentary (available at the beginning of the game), "outtakes" (which aren't really outtakes of course, but still), The Making Of By the Sword, where I walk you through behind-the-scenes, concept art, wireframes, etc. Whatever I feel like adding in. Also, there will be a complete walkthough and hidden cheats throughout the game will be revealed.

With permission from m0ds, I will also include a free Soundtrack CD with all the music from BtS inside (The $5 will be for the Bonus CD, not the Soundtrack) ;)

And even some extra options, like a DVD case instead of a jewel case for $2 extra, a paper manual instead of electronic manual for an extra $4, etc., etc.

So those are my plans. Right now, I'm about 81% done with the Chapter 1 demo, which I will release for upload sometime next month. :)

So how do ya like THEM apples!? ;D

70MB, Tarn? Holy shmoly! ...Guess I'll be waiting for the full game ;) ...Hell, I still have to buy Fatman....

Good job, though, seems like you've got everything under control and rolling smoothly :)

Heh.

Goldmund: No, I simply meant that those were added options you could have when buying the full game. :)

So yeah, the Intro/Rolling demo is around 5.8 MB alone.

The Chapter One playable demo will be 70-ish MB.

The full game could be as high as 100-200 MB, but with voices and music, maybe as high as 300 MB !!!

:D

Terran.. i have this question! Could it be that you are using Bryce for the scenes and poser for the characters? Because thats what it looks like! If that is so, maybee we could one day pass over eachothers work, and you could maybee help me to improve my skills. I have sometimes trouble using the lattice to make the object that i want. I am btw making a tutorial for bryce, and how to use it to make nice backgrounds for a game. Btw... very nice screenshots, though you can work on the expression of the characters. I was looking at the screenshot in wich 2 gauys were scanning the area, and the right guy... looks a bit awkward. I look forward playing your game!
