Last Chance for Backerkit! + Dev Update
24 days ago – Tue, Aug 24, 2021 at 12:02:41 AM

How can you resist Pika's moves?? It's the last chance to score goodies on our Backerkit!

Hello Terrabeast travelers!


How have your dog days of summer been? It's been a great summer for us! A busy summer! But a great one. I've been grinding on development and have lots to share!


The big news, right off the bat, is that our Backerkit is ending in less than 48 hours!! 


This is your last chance to grab a preordered digital copy of the game and last chance to snag gorgeous physical items like the Terrabeast pin, Terrabeast bandana, or the Mighty Beast & Astor statue. There's also wonderful digital treats like Alpha Access and in-game adornments!


It's also your last chance to adjust your order if you've already placed one.


Check out our Backerkit now before we close shop and lock in orders!! 


And here's the skinny on the many development updates that I've been working on! Can't wait for you all to experience these very soon 😊


  • Improved plant growing mechanic
  • Lots of new fruits sculpted and added to the game
  • Revamped inventory system
    - Much simpler, easier to use and supports TONS of items
  • Added new building/demolishing systems
  • Added new excavation system (using your terraform ability)
  • Photoscanned new characters and began animating them
  • Pika our shopkeeper is in the game!
  • Improved terraforming quality
  • Implemented skill progression for terraforming and building
  • Lots of bug fixes and many more!

Aloha!

Until next time,

Cliff

Hi OddFauna friends! Hope everyone's summer is going swimmingly!

It's been 2 months since the kickstarter ended and my focus has happily been solely on development. There's been a lot of progress and still lots to do!!!

We're almost finished with the Backerkit surveys - about 85% complete. If you haven't had the chance, take a gander at our Backerkit - oddfauna.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders - lots of goodies on there!

Here are some of the game dev related improvements that I’ve has been working on recently:

- Improved terrain with more dynamic mountains, rivers, lakes
- Optimized terrain deformation code from 20 ms to 1-3 ms
- Added Aphid characters - hostile to players when the world is agitated
- Built new conversation system
- Created Hot and cold climates
- Added swimming (appropriate because it is summertime after all)
- Prototyped new plant sculpting technique (failed but was cool)  
- Fixed Molo bug
- Reduced load times down significantly
- Able to spawn 4x4 zones now instead of 3x3 (basically a big map to play in)

Emma has been working on some new OddFauna and updated models for the game:

- Feroflo the flying mount!
- New Trico model
- New Mo model
- Pika Model (our in-game merchant) 


Thank you for all your support! We'll have some new gameplay footage to show off to you all soon!

Your lifeguard at the OddFauna pool party,

Cliff

Hello again OddFauna Fans!


Your survey has been sent! We're stoked to announce the launch of the official OddFauna BackerKit Pre-Order Shop!


With the OddFauna Backerkit, Kickstarter backers will be able to adjust their pledges and add on additional items from our Kickstarter. 


But wait… did you miss out on our Kickstarter? Well, I’ve got good news for you! You can still secure some OddFauna fun with the launch of our Backerkit!


Folks can obtain the physical items that were on offer, such as the limited edition TerraBeast pins and bandanas. Those who missed our Kickstarter can now pre-order a digital copy of the game.

The big epic item is the incredible sculpture of Astor and Mighty Beast "Ride" produced by Level52 Studios. The Backerkit will be your last opportunity to acquire one of these limited-edition works of art. Don’t miss out!


Thank you!

Cliff

BackerKit surveys are coming!

Hey OddFauna Backers!


After our amazing campaign and some post-campaign R&R, I'm back! For the last couple weeks I've been quietly working on the game(updates on that in the future), business and BackerKit Shop and Surveys.


Next Monday, you’ll receive an email from us with a special link to your BackerKit survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information to fulfill your rewards.


You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences, provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like. You don’t have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available Monday via email!


After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.


If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at oddfauna.backerkit.com


If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at oddfauna.backerkit.com/faq


Thank you!

Cheers,

Cliff

Thank you for supporting us! Here’s What’s Next for Oddfauna 🤗

Dearest OddFauna Supporters,

Thank you so much!!!

This has been a truly awesome experience! 


Honestly, we really did not know what to expect with this Kickstarter. We didn’t want to get our hopes too high.

But then we smashed our initial funding goal in the first few hours of the first day! We almost doubled it by the end of that first day!

We’ve been overwhelmed by the love and enthusiasm for our game! We’re beyond grateful.

Maybe now you’re wondering: what happens next? We are going to take a week for some R&R. Then you will receive an update with important information about the next steps for the project. At that time a BackerKit shop will be available for everyone to upgrade or purchase any of the add-ons. Remaining physical rewards will be available to everyone, regardless of tier. Emma and I will be jumping back into full-time game development mode. For our OddFauna fans, there’s more that you can do to stay involved and up to date on the game.

Get involved on our social channels, our discord and our email list! We’ll be sharing lots of information and fun insights on our discord as the game develops.

Thank you for being part of our OddFauna party!


💚,

Cliff and Emma
