Captain’s Log, stardate 1/26/14
All praise the space whales, we have received our funds! We’ve been paying people and upgrading our equipment this whole week. We’ve been putting the funds to use, so we hope that you’ll enjoy the updates we have this week.
The art overhaul has been continuing. We’ve listened to your comments and kept trying to tighten up our character art. We want this game to look as good as possible, so we’ve been stuffing a lot of work into improving the character art.
Also, we have something special for Kryska. Unfortunately, our Alliance liaison officer did not do so hot in the daki poll, placing last by a pretty large margin. So as a consolation prize, we tried giving her a sexier haircut. Hopefully more people will convert into the Kryska camp now. (Plus she’s actually bifauxen now, instead of just bifauxen by title only.)
And now our major announcement of the week. We’ve now cast most of the characters! I’m not kidding when I say that hundreds of people have auditioned for the game. Huge congratulations are in order for these vocal artists, since they beat a competition multiple times larger than the entire crew of the Sunrider, and also to Mike for managing to stay afloat despite his inbox being nuked with auditions. Without further ado, our cast members are:
