Greetings my beautiful members,

I'm writing this journal to hint you about the future of this project since this is one of the biggest milestones of my life.
As you probably noticed there isn't much going on right now and only people who follow my game development twitter know that I'm writing something twitter.com/Mirage_Noir
But if it comes to the graphic side of the project not much is going on. This is because I'm occupied by my real life full time job and two other half time jobs I'm doing at the moment (yeah, I have three jobs right now :D :D ) - so as you can imagine it gives a little room to do something else in my free time.

That's why decided to quit my full time job and one of my half time jobs in order to fully devote myself to "Mirage Noir" project.

From 15th July I'm going to start working on my game as my normal job. This includes at least 40h of work each week (just like a full time job).
I'll probably be doing daily livestream sessions to show you the progress (I'm thinking something like 2h a day, because I don't want to show you all things, that would ruin my game, haha).


Also, on 1st of August I'm starting another contest related to my game.
This time the prize pool is even bigger:

FIRST PRIZE:
200 $ or equivalent in DA POINTS

SECOND PRIZE:
100$ or equivalent in DA POINTS

THIRD PRIZE:
50$ or equivalent in DA POINTS

SPECIAL PRIZE:
5 x ONE YEAR DA PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP


Also I want to release the game demo before the 1st of June.
... and one more thing about livestreaming sessions - I'll start doing it on irregular basis after the renovation of our flat is done (somewhere near Aprill).

I know that ditching a stable job especially in the time of worldwide cricis is really crazy, but... I decided that this is what I want to do with my life.
I want to make games - that's what really makes me fullfilled.

..and even crazier thing is that I won't sell that game - It will be free to download for everyone who desires to play it.
In the times of big companies milking gamers from every penny they can I preffer different bussiness model - Supporting the artist through donations.
But, I'll write about it some other time :)

I hope that you'll enjoy your stay here and I'm really happy to have you guys here.

TL;DR - Quiting my job on 15th of July to have more time to make "Mirage Noir"
Making another contest on 1st of August with 200$ as the main prize
Starting irregullar livestreaming sessions somewhere near Aprill

Various things :)
Sometimes I ask on feedback regarding the character design, sometimes I post ideas regarding the game - everything will be announced. Right now I'm doing a summer contest with the main prize 1000 :points: all the info is here: the-black-mirage.deviantart.co...

owh sounds awesome thanks for the link, I get it a little more now. So you want help with the graphics right? If you want I can draw stuff for you but like only black white:/ I'm sorry but I don't have a drawing table thingy and can only draw on paper. You can look in my gallery to see my work:)

Awesome! Your dedication to this project is inspiring. I'm doing a similar thing with my manga. I don't have a full time job this summer and am instead dedicating my time to working on my manga project and working on other drawings ^^ Let's both do our best!!

sounds interresting!
i wont stand a chance in the contest but iŽd be happy to see the product...
is there any kickstarter later on when you have more content?
any other info would be nice about it, i mean things like: how long will the game be, how much will it cost, where to download, etc
dont know if you mentioned it somewhere! sry.

:iconnoire-ighaan:
Noire-Ighaan Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, I plan on doing a kickstarter later :)
The game will be totally free and the demo will be released somewhere in August (it will be in two formats: .swf, posted onto DA and downloadable Ren'Py game version)
Reply
:iconmafutofu:
Mafutofu Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
to be honest i never heard of those formats, but iŽll guess i can still get a programm for them later :D
do kickstarters get something extra? i mean if its free the kickstarters are just poor idiots who paid all the other people a game...
iŽd still kickstart i think but iŽd be more happy with extra content even if it is just extra artwork ^^
