Ortus Update

2012-06-18 10:22:44 by Elvidian

Here at Elvidian we have noticed that a lot of the posts on our Facebook pages have been asking about the release date of Ortus. This update is to address all those posts.

In the past we have announced dates that we hoped Ortus would be completed by. Unfortunately we have not been able to make those deadlines due to the ambitious nature of the Ortus project. Regrettably at this point in time we cannot give you a release date. ORTUS WILL BE RELEASED and the team is working full time to get it done, but we just don't know when that will be.

Like stated earlier Ortus is a very ambitious project, at this point in time there is one animator, one writer, one coder and one artist working full time on a game that aims to be as big and diverse as RPGs made by multi-million dollar companies. This team is donating their time at this point as funding has well and truly run out for the project. They will continue to working hard until the game is complete and up to the high standard the team hold RPGs.

We want to assure all fans and supports that Ortus will come out and we will give you a release date as soon as we have one available.

In other news, we have just launched our BRAND NEW WEBSITE, be sure to check it out, big thanks to Lochie for all his hard work!

We should trade Facebook likes because I am just as serious about my audio as you are about this game. facebook.com/johnnydeamusic

Great to hear! I also have 2 questions: Considering the epic scope you're aiming for, do you think the filesize will be far too big for Newgrounds by the time it's done? If so, where do you plan to release it? On your website, or even Steam, perhaps?

Elvidian responds:

we plan on breaking it up into hundreds of little pieces and dynamically loading what is needed as people play :)

Awesome work! I just tried out Shadow Tag and became a new fan. I like the way that game looks. Have you thought of making a game where you do the tagging? haha. Looking forward to more of your work. I'll go take a look at your site now. Good luck with everything!
