To improve the game immersion and for the best animation to the character, I have buy a base model that I reworked. Here is the final result of the character in several different types of emotions:

This character is fully animated with motion capture, which will in the near future a much smoother animation and facial expressions and transmit the emotions of the character.

The animation is done at home using Kinect 2, and the result, which will be published shortly, is much more natural than the figure currently included in the game.

Integration of the character and entertainment end of October.

Pictures and videos will enhance the site as and development.

Before starting the integration, I propose to the players to vote for the prefered character on my website http://wimfgame.com

Having too many bugs with the current interface, I decided, after receiving notice of many players, creating a more friendly interface. 

 

It finalized and being tested before publication! 

 

I have deleted the long left-clicking, multiple ways of acting and combining interfaces, which return objects in the inventory without action've accomplished, names of objects or action remaining hanging on the cursor despite the change of environment or objects in hand. 

 

A single interface has now been developed. Now, the system is much simpler and is finally stable. 

 

In summary : 

 

-The Overview of the object with the mouse cursor shows the name of the object and the possible action at the time of rollover. A left click valid action. 

- A right click on the object activates its review or just loose the object if it is in hand. 

 

The type of action when mouseover may change depending on what the player has done such actions on it. These changes impact on stability make the gameplay much better, both in the environment than in the inventory From this change, when you now have an inventory item in hand, it remains active as long as you did not click with the right button to let go, or that the action was successful and that the object is no longer available.

 

Concerning the evolution of the final version, all the parts is over 80%. Small delay due to the embedding of the voices. I try to respect the exit end of this year or early 2016.

 

Thank you all

2.  Intro completely redone and texts adapted and corrected.
3.  The mouse icons have improved and more numerous (now the cursor is automatically adjusted according to the type of action (in previous versions, to open a door, turn on or off a lamp, open a drawer, still using the cursor "use" that was displayed. now each action to its dedicated icon (open door, switch light, open drawer, pet the dog, etc ...).
4.  Help Page redone, now contains more graphics and less text.
5.  Modified random Answers (now correspond better to the game when the player makes a wrong action).

Hello everyone


I am happy this morning because my new Kickstarter campaign has been accepted and is launched.


I canceled the old campaign for a simple and obvious reason. The amount for your contributions and the price of the game were far too high.


So I just launch a new campaign, with rewards update and reduced amounts for each contribution.


I also managed to find other suppliers to the amount necessary for me to release the game to be lower.


The rewards are more accessible for everyone and the game is now included from 10 euros.


I continue to improve the game and, after more than 15 months of work, I want to distribute the final version but I need you to do it.


The scenario promises many surprises and you will spend many hours to discover the adventure of Ben, little awkward boy trying to find his parents disappeared. With a capricious nature, it will not make your life easy.


And finally, I would like to propose a game for all age groups, with no trace of violence or vulgarity and entirely in French.

 

Anglophones are still not forgotten because the game is subtitled in English, the translation will be corrected by professionals, and if the third goal of the campaign is reached, the English voice will be available.

 

Has consumed without moderation :)

 

The number of fan are increasing day by day, my motivation is high


I let you discover my new kickstarter page

http://kck.st/20iQuFm

 

Thank you all for your support.

Several people have asked me about the content of the game and focus on the age group allowed to play.

Although the scenario seems tragic, the game contains no violence, and is for all ages. the script contains a lot of humor and is "safe" to do no shock people and to allow everyone to have fun for many hours. game guaranteed without violence!

Important decision about my point and click "Where is my family"

 

About me : My name is Joel Keutgen, passionate of computers and point and click games since I was 15y (I'm now 44). I started alone this project, helped by various people for music, voice and sound effects. The project's success will increase my motivation. You offer the full game filled me with joy. My wish is to share my improvements on the game and give you lots of fun with this game.

 

Until today, it was planned commercialization of the game and win a crownfunding campaign to help me improve it and market the game.

But after several sleepless nights have thought, and after receiving the advice of professionals, I decided:

 

  • Do not worry, I continue the development of the game.
  • The improvements are all valid and the final version will contain important improvements, both in the entertainment and the content in general.
  • I will continue to inform you of the development. I invite you to subscribe to my website http://wimfgame.com or my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/wimfgames/

 

Finally, nothing changes except that:

 

  • A team will be created, with a real structure that will allow us to offer new games, with better quality.
  • "Where is my family" will be available free on Windows, Mac and Linux.
  • A second game  is already in preparation.

 

To enable me to achieve all that, I have created a donation system on my website for support me, help to finalize this game and allow our future team to create other games.

 

And also help us, thank you all to share this information;)

 

Thank you all to follow me for so long.

 

Soon for further information about the Dev and the release of the game :)

 Joël
