Voice Actors - Site and Store - Esmy Figure - World Map and Locations
Hey, fellow Cryatists! It’s time for a new update!
First off, we feel that you guys are really anxious about this game! We wanted to let you know that we are too! We’re working tirelessly at creating Cryamore, making sure it’s everything we (and hopefully you) want it to be. With that said, we’re so happy and thankful that you guys are continuing to be very supportive of our work on this game, and please know that it doesn’t go unnoticed by us here at NostalgiCO. With that said, this general update is sorta meaty, and is also being given amidst a lot of big development updates, so we’ll break this in pieces!
By the way, that above image is a cropped peek at a guest gallery image for the artbook by Caleb Thomas! Check his other work out! Yup, the artbook is still going to be a thing!
Acting with Voices!
We have the first set of voice actors ready for the main cast of the game!
We’re very excited to be working with an incredible cast of actors on Cryamore. You’ve heard a bit of our heroes in the Kickstarter video and if you’ve played the old demo, but now we’re ready to reveal a bigger chunk of the main cast!
Esmyrelda Maximus - Erica Mendez (Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventures, Heroes of Newerth, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic)
Braxton Barson - Marianne Miller (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Snow Queen, Avalon Code)
Bliss Barson - Kimlinh Tran (Skullgirls, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Stick it to the Man)
Déséret Amoir - Eileen Montgomery (A Hat in Time, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Apotheon)
Sorbet La Carelle - Miranda Gauvin (Blackwell Deception, Primordia, The Journey Down: Over the Edge)
Bagel Ameli - Micah Solusod (Wolf Children, Jisei, Soul Eater)
Chief Geophilus Silvershark - Mick Lauer (Yu-Gi-Oh! ZeXal, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Not the Robots!)
Engracia Maximus - Laura Post (League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Pokemon Origins)
Easton Maximus - Joshua Tomar (Skullgirls, League of Legends, Sword Art Online)
Riot - Daman Mills (Castle Dracula, Super Ubie Land)
Fité zo Rala - Kyle Hebert (Street Fighter 4, Dragonball Z, Gurren Lagann)
Look forward to hearing this amazing group of talent in Cryamore; there are many more characters to be announced, too!
This also means that we’re going to begin on dialogue/event writing really soon, which is pretty important stuff, yeah? Can’t have an action RPG with lousy story/events! Don’t forget that you can catch up on all the character backstory on our Facebook page currently!
Site Update …Update.
As we said in our last update, our main Official Cryamore site is being reworked and will be live really soon, where it will be the definitive place to get the skinny on current news and preorder the game with help from our friends over at Humble Store!
We’re also prepping our pitch to finally throw on Steam Greenlight so we can rally support for Cryamore on Steam soon!
Our Official Cryamore store is live! Though there’s not much there right now, there will definitely be more merchandise in the upcoming future! When visiting that link, you also might notice that there are just figures for now. Speaking of figures…
That’s right, she’s complete and is jumping into full production, along with her little sister Bliss! These are actual photos of the master figure.
With that said, for those who missed the figures during our campaign, we have a few left for grabs! Very small few, in fact. With that said, this is the only time this run is being made for these figures. So if you so desire one of these ladies (or both of them if you’re a big Cryamore collector), now would be the chance!
Now, moving on to some of the stuff involving the actual game:
Let’s see, we don’t want to spoil much in this area… So here’s a bit of inside info.
We’re currently finalizing the Overworld Map!
That tiny orange dot surrounded by the red box right at the bottom is our ginger-haired hero! And this is only the directly North section of the map! So we think it’s safe to say that this game is going to be absolutely huge, from an independent standpoint.
Ghilcrest is also nearly complete. These are in-game screenshots. The world of Cryamore is finally becoming more lively! What, you thought Esmy was going to be trudging through dark caves the whole game? Finally, a tease of the town lift, which takes you to the eastern section of the island/overworld:
Here are a few more environment layouts, specifically the Terrestrial Woods:
We tend to think our method of showcasing our layouts is pretty boring though, so we hope you’ve got a pretty good idea out of this location stuff!
New Music Time!
Speaking of the woods, you can relax while listening to the night time theme for it, by Aivi!
She and Surasshu have been absolutely slamming the music! There’s so much we want to share that we can’t even do so (you obviously have to wait for the game release for most of the really good stuff)! Also, they’ve been recently working on the new show Steven Universe! So you can listen to more of their music there in the meantime!
We should probably stop things here; there is definitely a lot left to show and tell about. Our next update will include a new webplayer build, allowing you to walk around Ghilcrest, and probably a few areas in the Overworld! As well as an update on some enemy designs! In addition, Alan and Rob want to get back to making more informational posts regarding how the game is being created and developed, so be on the lookout for that!
Until the next update! <3
In other news, Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is absolutely amazing, don’t you agree? :)
Bliss Barson Sculpt - Ghilcrest - Surveys
Hey, fellow Cryatists! Here’s an update! Nothing too extravagant on this one!
Bliss is complete! She’s off to the printer for production along with Esmy! We totally love how she came out, and we’re definitely looking forward to the tangible version of her!
If you want to take a more in-depth look at her, just click around our handy interactive 3D tool and spin her around! (May take a bit to load depending on your connection/browser):
This goes for Bliss too: this is not representative of a final paint job, but this is as close you’re going to get for a digital look. Bliss will also be approximately 24cm tall (about 9.5 inches).
Again, we will not have that many copies of her, so if you want her, be sure to stay tuned for information on preordering her if you didn’t get a chance to pledge for her. All of our backers, take note of this information once again:
- For all of our backers that ordered an Esmy and/or Bliss figure, we are sending out surveys this week (the majority of backers that involve the figures have already been sent)! We’ll need specification as to whether you want your figure stock pre-painted, or as an unpainted kit. We know that quite a few of you would like to paint her yourselves or have someone you know paint them for you. We’ll need this survey filled ASAP so we can get our numbers in for production.
- There will NOT be another reprint. There have been some who have expressed wanting a Bliss or Esmy figure much after the Kickstarter was over. These remaining ones will be available for picking up by anyone, and preorders for them will be thrown up on our upcoming revamped site, although, they will cost $150 each. This will be your final chance to grab one of these figures if you wanted one, but have been on the fence about it. We will make an announcement when the preorder page goes up.
We don’t have a video up yet, (because we’re totally not done with it yet) but we can only tease a little bit of it! (We’d really like to wow you when it’s all put together!) Here’s the Ghilcrest Café:
As stated earlier, we’ve already started sending out some of the surveys, primarily the figures first, as they’re on the road to production. The rest of everyone’s surveys will roll out over the course of this week. Please, when received, respond in a timely manner so we can have all of this information on hand to make the fulfillment stuff as seamless as possible! We give you our thanks in advance!
We apologize that today’s update is lacking the usual video to accompany it! A lot of what we’ve been working on are backgrounds and engines and tools that work behind the scenes in the game. We desire to get back to more detailed incremental updates, such as our development process so you can see how we’re using Unity and insight into music creation and art asset production. And we definitely would like to get back to streams so you can hangout and watch us work!
Until the next update, we bid you farewell!
Thanks again, folks!
We got quite the amount of fan-goodies!! Time for show-n-tell:
A cutely-stylized pic of Esmy by Adam Law!
A wispy illustration of Sylpha from Christine Landis!
A very cool piece of Esmy by Sarrus!
