Welcome back, Traveller!
This year is nearing towards its end and Christmas is already around the corner!
Time has really flown by and our whole team is thankful for all the support that we have received this year. We are also really excited for all the amazing things that will come to DFD in 2022.
So before we take a closer look at that, we want to take the opportunity in our last community update of this year to give you a short wrap-up of all the things that have happened in 2021!
we started our journey, together with all of you. With your help, we smashed our Kickstarter goals, ramped up an amazing team, and built what is to become the foundation of DFD:
The development team has done outstanding work by laying the groundwork with a lot of the core features for the foundation of DFD. These include multiplayer, miniature character possession, full-body IK for VR, and the first iteration for our interaction and inventory system.
And in case that you missed it: You can actually take a look at all of this in our exciting Q&A stream from last month, where we watched some sneak gameplay of DFD together with the community and answered community questions. We have uploaded it on youtube for all of you to watch: https://youtu.be/efZ9bgZqLC8.
Our Art team on the other hand has been tinkering on our breathtaking environments (two of them made it to the Q&A stream as well, so definitely take a look there!) and has worked on solidifying the artstyle of DFD going forward. We are really excited to show you even more of those environments beginning of next year so that you can see all of the cool interactions that are possible in them for yourself!
Overall, this has been a crazy year that developed completely different from what we initially expected going into another year of this pandemic. We are extremely grateful for all the amazing support and feedback we receive on a daily basis. This is what motivates us to work our hardest every day and to make your wait worthwhile!
And for 2022?
As always we have some cool insight updates planned from the art and dev team for 2022. While most of the team will take some day-offs during the holiday season, we do plan to take a closer look at another environment in the next update.
Also, since our announcement of the rescheduling of the DFD release date, many of you have been waiting for updates on the new beta release date. We are just as eager as you to announce a new date for the beta. At the moment we can’t give an official date yet, but we plan to get everything prepared so that we will be able to do so around the end of Q1 2022. Stay tuned and we will make sure to announce a new date as soon as we can!
Nevertheless, that wraps up our community update for now. In case that you have any questions regarding the game, you can discuss them within our community on our Discord. Our Developers also check in there from time to time, so feel free to join as well!
The whole TxK Gaming team wishes all of you a happy holiday season!🎅
