It´s been a year since we started this amazing adventure. Some of you may remember our first days drawing in David Güell’s father’s studio, just two crazy artists working on the pre-production of a new game.
We slowly made the team grow as new members joined the team. In just a couple of months we prepared a first version of the game, flew to LA to show the progress at the E3, got some incredible meetings and the money needed to continue working and improving Skara. It was the confirmation of the good feeling that we have, the game was starting to attract some attention of the media and gamers around the world, and every time we set up a multiplayer match at the office we discovered Skara as a great and fun game.
We always found it hard to beat Luis Rojas in a Skara fight, but you know, he is the guy in charge of programming the combat system and knows perfectly the timing and accuracy needed to be a master. The rest of the team are still learning and improving, but in every game we enjoy and laugh like little children. And we can always imprison Luis in the bathroom to get rid of him if we occasionally want to win a match.
We are especially proud of our community of players, as we always wanted to develop Skara in collaboration with gamers, hearing the advice and improving the game as we go. They are actually generating content for the game, creating factions of each race that will be released in the game by the art department. It´s the prize that we are offering to those who are walking with us in this journey, and it’s exciting to see the progress and the stories that they created, assimilating and enriching the world and background of Skara. A big applause to them, they are the true core of The Blade Remains, and we consider them as part of the family.
And finally, there are exciting times to come in Skara. During the next couple of weeks we’ll adjust and balance the combat system and invite some of our fans to play with us in the first worldwide test of the game. Those who won a Beta Invite participating in our forums will receive a secret invite with specific instructions to join us in this first epic battle.
In February some members of the team will move to London to participate in the first Microsoft Ventures Accelerator. We will tell you more about this adventure, we are excited to be part of the first cohort and pretty sure that Skara will make great strides forward during these three months.
Thanks for adventuring with us,
