Happy summer! Just a word out, that the novel based on Roger Foodbelly won't be started on before next year. Right now I'm finishing off my suspense novel. If you want updates, follow my writer profile as well, as this page will become more active again when I start writing the novel.
This year I will start putting Roger Foodbelly into a novel instead, I'll keep you all updated. On both translations and the progress. If anyone would love to continue the game development, let's talk about licensing it.
While we wait for Roger Foodbelly, Bill Tiller runs a Kickstarter I advice you to check out! Bill is working with us on this project, so you should go over there and help them out a little
We wish all our fans a merry Christmas and a happy new year! "God jul" means "Merry Christmas" in Norwegian by the way! Card of Roger is made by Silje Starheim in 2006. Reposting it again now!
Okay, here's for making promises. We've got another delay in the development, so instead of promising a completion year, it will be done when it's done. Then one day we'll surprise you, and we hope you'll support us by then we'll post more info when we have more to tell! In January we'll put up another work in progress image! Thanks for liking our page!
Update: I know there's been delays, and we're sorry for that. But don't lose hope - I promise you that the game will come out in the end. What we have so far, is pre-production stuff. Story and puzzles are completed. Designs are completed. All we need now is a good, stable programmer. We're also lucky to have found our self a highly talented artist, with a ever-growing passion for this project. We need people with passion to give you a full worthy product. When we deliver, I ...want to give you a product that shines quality, because you deserve it. In the coming weeks, we'll continue with the alpha version, before we start planning the Kickstarter campaign.
I will present backers with an early preview of the alpha, for those who want to have a look at it. Remember that this placeholder will not be the full episode, but a small peak at where we're at. That means mostly sketches, static characters and possibly the old version of Roger Foodbelly.
Backers will also be given the possibility to play test the completed alpha and beta version of the game, before the release.
We hoped to have launched the Kickstarter campaign already now, but after we lost our programmer two months back, we've been set back a little. But don't lose faith! I'm will complete this, even though I'm left coding the alpha right now. It's not hard-coding, but it will work temporarily.
I'll keep you updated on the progress along the way, posting everything from screenshots from the alpha, teasing you with wonderful in-game music and maybe a word from Roger Foodbelly himself.
After our server got deleted, we lost much too. But I have the game up here in my head, with colors and everything. Roger Foodbelly has been a part of my heart and brain for a decade, and it's my little baby. And I want to share this one with you soon, not just because the project deserves it. It's because you deserve it. I've been fighting my way through to give fans what they expect.
Now's the time.
