Everfree Northwest panels posted!

(UPDATE: The Games Ponies Play video has been reposted; the previous version was taken down.)

Hi all,

As indicated in a previous post, MLI had representation at two panels at Everfree Northwest earlier this month. Both panels have now been posted to Everfree Network‘s YouTube channel, so we’re now able to post them for you to enjoy. The first one is Games Ponies Play, a general gaming panel that I attended, and the second is the My Little Investigations panel that occurred later that day. Enjoy!

Meet the Voice Actors!

Hi, all!

In order to get the voice actors for case 1 immediately to work, we all agreed that a fun project to do might be to do a little promo video to feature the voice actors that you’ll be hearing from in the case. I’m happy to report that it’s now done, so here it is for you to enjoy:

We hope to have more from you soon, but we hope this might tide you over until then!

Engine Demo – Confrontations

Bada bing, bada boom, there’s a video in the room!

…Or so Zecora might say, if she were here, and in a spunky mood.

Here you go:

This is the last engine demo video, so just having this up marks quite a milestone!  We’ll have more information later regarding the next step for My Little Investigations, but for now, enjoy!

Engine Demo – Partners

As the Joker might say, “And here… we… go.”

The next engine demo is up, this time demonstrating – drumroll please – partners!  This is something that people have been asking about for quite some time, so I’m happy to finally be able to talk about it.  Hopefully people like it.  It would suck if people didn’t. :P

Anyway, without further ado, I’ll let the video do the rest of the talking:

Engine demo – Locations

IT’S FINALLY HERE!

This video took way longer than I had expected it would take, but it’s finally ready to be shown.  This time, we’re looking at locations, and all the things associated with them.  A full explanation may be found in the video, so I’ll just post it:

For those curious, a full explanation of the items found in this video appears after the break.

Engine demo – Character encounters

Phew, this took a bit longer than I expected it to – I kept finding more and more things I wanted to implement for the test content seen in this video -  but the next gameplay video is finally ready for display.  This time, we’re taking a look at character encounters.  A full explanation can be found in the video (now with narration!), so I’ll just stop talking and post the video:

More details about just what is seen in this video appear after the break.

Engine demo – Interrogations

The very first part of the game that I decided to start working on, since I had a feeling it would be the most involved, was the interrogations – the portions of the game where you listen to a character talk about a subject, press them for more details or to get a reaction from them, and then present them with evidence to expose a lie if they’re making one.  That portion of the game engine is more or less complete at this point, and I’ve put up a video demonstrating the gameplay for this part of the game after the break.

More info after the break.
