    Hey all!

    Just droppin' a line to say me and Henrik (the animator on the commercial release of the Journey Down) have just started some form of development blog over at www.slxgames.com. For you who are curious about our JD progress and/or our general bantering regarding our other projects/tomfoolery, please, drop by! If people visit the damn thing we might actually bother keeping it updated too!

    Here's a sketchy outtake from one of the new rooms:

    If you're curious about the development of this pile of point 'n click goodness, please head on over to the dev-blog asap and check out our nice feed of media from the production!

    All comments are appreciated, thanks!

    Also, if you've played the prototype version, I'd love to hear your thoughts on what we can improve in this new shiny version. Thank you.

    Here's another new screenie from the devblog. I'm happily painting away on the new room backdrops while Henrik keeps playing around with our rendering pipeline. Mathias has started scratching his head delving into the spaghetti code of the AGS engine, and Markus is, well, busy with other things. :cool:

    Man I'd love to give Bwana -the main character- unique frames in here sort of squeezing his body together against the cold. What a truly bad idea. :rolleyes:

    Keep the comments coming, please:)

    I'm posting to say that we've just updated the blog today with a sneak peek of the voice of Lina. Thus finishing our lead cast preview on the dev-blog. Check her voice out and tell us what you think!

    Hey, just thought I'd share a pic from our dev-blog. Sketches from The Journey Down. Thousands of sketches. This should give people around here a clue or two regarding the effort behind this production. :)
