We have a great week behind us and a very promising one coming up next. Not only we participated in an interview for TwoHappyCats blog, but we actually made a gigantic progress making the game's prototype. We had a huge delay, but it finally starts looking pretty good... Though we still have a lot of graphics to complete.

Such as these ones! We almost finished portraying our villagers and they are turning out great. For this #screenshotsaturday, we're sharing one happy family - Mita, Castus and their only son, Pudens. These farmers are the owners of the best fields in Windy Meadow, but their most important source of income is definitely the apiary and their mead-producing business.

Changes, changes... The new art is born and then evolves, while Tales From Windy Meadow in its entirety comes closer to its final state.

But the most important changes are unable to show in a small #ScreenshotSaturday post. On Wednesday we're going to share these details. The sad thing is we failed to finish the game to this day... So the March release is now out of our reach.However, we finally have the most basic, raw version of the game working.

Our previous decisions led us to a wrong spot, but now, after switching to a new game engine and changing the programmer, we managed to achieve in 10 days what we were unable to make during 6 previous months.

We are still behind... But there is a lot to show. We'll start showing the game's screenshots and its features next week.

Some graphics are still not ready and some things still need to be improved, but we really like this "point the name with your mouse to read it's description". It changes a lot of the writing as well, since this format allows us to easily avoid bad dialogue such as "as you know, I was always your friend and your father never liked me..."

Everything is still work in progress. : )

Thank you, Zelan! : D The tree may be pretty, but I wonder how would it work as a part of the palisade... ; ) ;

We have never participated in IndieDevHour before, but we'll try to start with the weekly updates from now on. : ) Tomorrow we should be able to post a new devlog as well. : )

This is Temnus, Iudicia's father. Longer description would enter the spoiler territory, but I hope you'll like the visuals. : )

Is he carrying Iudicia in that first image?

Your pixel work is really great, honestly, there's always lots of detail and I think that's really cool. c:

Yep, it's Iudicia when she was a little girl. : ) Currently, she is quite higher than he is. : P
Thank you so much for your kind words. : ))

I must admit, as a person I find no comfort in animal trophies... But the colors of this building - home to the family of hunters who live in Windy Meadow - directly move me, like a place I would love to see in real life.
