Title: Tales of Woe - The Full 3 Part Series!
Post by: x4000 on October 08, 2015, 04:10:20 PM
You may recall that we were doing  a series of visual shorts set in the world of Stars Beyond Reach.  Well, the final part of that is now here!

Since it's been a while, here are all three parts of the video in one series:







"Tales of Woe" is a three-part series of humorous video shorts set in the Stars Beyond Reach universe. The first video focuses on the approach to the planet, and reveals the general backstory. The second video is a look at a supremely unlucky set of new arrivals on the planet. And the third video is a look at that civilization as it has become ascendant... but at what price? Animated by Julian GD, and voiced by Toby Ricketts and Bronnie Howells.

Part 3 has been done since May (as you'll note by the youtube upload date), but I've had it unlisted until now because I wanted to release that along with another gameplay video.  No such luck.  More on that here: https://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,18040.0.html

Sums up my phase as "new tester" quite nicely  :D

Though, I've always been the villain  >D

Hang on, she's an isolationist; would she ask for help in that situation?  :D

Mwahaha.

And yeah, I think she's basically hat in hand at that point.  Isolationist sure, but when you're under the boot heel you do what you have to.

I love these animaton videos. Brilliant.
They should somehow be incorporated in the game.

We will have them as little things on the right side of the main menu so that people won't miss the fact that they exist.  Plus the guy who voiced the computer in these will voice the computer during certain key points and in the tutorials for the game, too.  He'll also be voicing some stuff for the interim game we're doing, too!

"Frak on a stick!" is a new phrase I'm going to use now.  Probably often.
