First Rosa recording session yesterday! My new recording room is a tad echoey, so until it's fully soundproofed, we gerryrigged a temporary solution:

Try hanging a thick duvet a metre or so *behind* the actress.

A thin towel will likely absorb too much of the high end making the whole thing sound "boxy".

2 pence from a former sound tech. :D

EDIT:

Also, if thats a reflexion filter or something similar thats not a pop shield, it goes *behind* the microphone.

That's a pop shield. I've ordered a reflexion filter as well!

Hey, congrats to Ben on getting a full-time AGS job! And congrats to Dave and Janet on getting a full-time employee!

I have decided to take this as a sign that the next WEG game after Blackwell Epiphany will be an unprecedentedly ambitious and awesome affair. Not that BE won't be as well. It's just that, much as I like the Blackwell games, I'm really looking forward to seeing what else you can do.

Thanks, Snarky! It feels like I've finally reached a place I've been trying to be for some years. Looking forward to giving the Blackwell series the farewell it deserves and seeing what's next! :)

Thanks Snarky! There are a few other projects lined up after Epiphany (which WEG is publishing/assisting with and Ben is doing the art for), but I have given a LOT of thought to our next internal game. I've always wanted to do something more ambitious and now we can. :D

So Ben's been hard at work making art, and I've been hard at work implementing it all:

Starting to see the light at the end of the development tunnel! I just did my first playthrough that contains all the major elements. It's almost done aside from a few graphical elements and the VO.

Speaking of VO, here are some small samples:

Rosa's past catches up with her
Sam Durkin is back
Rosa does Joey proud

I played the first 4 games and I am super excited for this one!

I've always thought that the Blackwell games were real professional a well-made, and one of the true throwbacks to the adventure games of old. Definitely looking forward to this one!
