Hey all, most of you have seen me floating around the place a bit lately, im just announcing 2 things..
1) Over the past 18 months or so ive been analysing ideas, approaches and business plans regarding the games industry, and come up with a winner out of a handful of possibles.
We create game related assets, both art and code. We do not make games. [:0]
We are simply a cost effective method for other developers to meet deadlines and milestones, and provide an extra boost to manpower without the added overheads of salaries etc.
2) Im glad to also announce the birth of our webpage, check it out here http://www.kalescentstudios.com
Feedback of course is welcome [:)] and greatly appreciated.
Hey congrats and good luck. You have the talent and determination to pull it off :)
My only suggestion for your site, is to have a gallery area where clients can get an idea of all your work.
I wish both you, Matias and the rest of the team, the best of luck.
BTW. Shane's Avatar rocks. Family Guy forever :D
Thanks everyone [:D] yup im pretty stoked with it all, theres still a few little niggly things i have to sort out with it, a few spelling mistakes even
We will be posting on sumea as Urban Brawl progresses, with screenshots etc. Also updates in technology and perhaps post some pics of our little studio when we secure some office space [:D]
DEFINATELY watch this space !!!
Tbag - whilst it is the cheapest route of securing space, we may end up with a tool shed, or even worse a makeshift tree-hut, i think we will stick to securing a cosy few square feet of air conditioned office space [:)]
and yes the demo of urban brawl will be freeware, available for all to download! [:D]
the alpha/beta releases will also be up for download for all who wish to take part in the testing process.
Just dont let any of the big guys hold you down! Read the fine print [;)].
It would be really nice if you guys were contracted by like ID or Valve etc... anything is possible so dont say it isnt!
Cant wait to see that Urban Bowl demo [:p]. Just wondering, if it is for the Xbox does that mean you are possibly going to develop a full game or just a demo? Oh and do you ever plan to expand into a a game developer?
Sorry that im full of so many questions, i just love hearing good news [:)].
Tbag - Yip it would be nutz if we were hired by id / valve, and nope i definately didnt say it wasnt possible, all ill say at this moment in time is that there are big things on the horizon for us. [;)]
Urban Brawl could well end up going down that road ie becoming a full game - but the sole purpose for it is to show we can handle anything, and do just as good a job, if not better that bigger more widely known development houses could.
In the future we could possibly expand into a development studio, just at this time its more feasible for us as a small team to bring in the $$$ by taking the route we are.
Just a note on Urban Brawl, Ill be posting some specs and accompanying screens in the near future, that could well put the shits up some of the bigger development companies out there, as we have REALLY , REALLY pushed the xbox on such a small project, and im doubtless it will raise an eyebrow or three.
[:D] The proof is definately in the pudding !
Just a note to let people know the gallery page is up,
There's a couple of concepts for some of the earlier characters - some in-game screenshots will be up soon, along with some pics of the player models.
There is myself, 2 programmers, 2 artists, and just recently a couple of additions to the team = 1 Sound Tech, 1 Project Manager.
As for backgrounds, you can check out our 'about' page, the new additions details will be up there shortly [:D]
