Hi guys, Brandon here just wanted to drop some news regarding my current plans for this Indiegogo and my direction for Ato. (This post is the same as the one on Indiegogo)
For those who don’t know Ato is a game that takes place in the era of feudal Japan, it heavily focuses its design around a strong atmosphere, visual driven story and personalized sword duels.
Right now the Indiegogo is 70% funded since its launch, which is pretty awesome.
The good news is that I already have enough funds now to be able to put the game on steam (which I will probably get around to when the game is near completion.)
Speaking of game development, when is the game coming out? My current goal is to try and get the game done this year. Of course the chance of a delay is possible as this game is made by just myself.
The game is around 50-60% done, I started the project back in 2018.
Currently what is on my plate is to keep making content (Bosses, unique puzzles, more rooms, special powers, environment work, cutscenes, sprites, music, sounds, etc.). What I’m striving for currently is to layout the entire game, create the content and try to reach Beta as quickly as possible. By reaching beta, the game can be rigorously tested, bosses adjusted, features tweaked and bugs fixed.
Here are some things I just finished creating since I launched the Indiegogo:
- Entire Game and Map Layout setup.
- 5 new puzzle assets
- 3 new special abilities
- 4 areas are finished being conceptualized
- 2 environments coded in
Anyways, I hope this update helps give you guys some insight as to what has been going on and what is planned for in the future! Now it’s time for me to get back to making some more content!
