Behind The Scenes of Fran Bow

The last development update video of Fran Bow!
Do you also like to see the raw behind the scenes footage of cool movies, games, artists or anything you liked? Because we love those! Especially the ones where they show a normal average day of doing stuff, where we get to see behind the fancy curtains you normally see. Well, if you do, then you will love our last dev video, because it’s super long and very raw from the entire process of making Fran Bow!
This wasn’t planned though, because what we had planned while filming everything for the past years was to make a full awesome documentary where we get into the details of everything. We made a human error by choosing to trust all our video material to one single backup harddrive. By Murphy’s law, the harddrive had to completely die in silence the day we sat down to edit it all together. This led to a lot of drama in the apartment, but after the storm we got the idea of just getting everything we could find and placing them in one last video update, beginning from the start and ending at just a couple of days ago.
Watching it for ourselves, it also works as a reminder and a memory to where we came from and how we started out in game development, so it’s a very special video for us! It’s also the result of still not giving up, even if the crap hits your face with smelly underpants.
It will soon be 10 months after the release of our first big game Fran Bow and today we can almost feel like we are done with everything and can move on to the next project 100%. There are so many projects in mind now that it’s going to be a very exciting time ahead!

We hope you like the video! If not, that’s fine too, we still love you!

Thank you!!! ❤

The diary of Fran Bow #3

We have decided to turn up the development of Fran Bow to maximal and after the respons we have had we found out that it might not be a good idea to show more goodies for a while. Mostly because we need to be focused and make the game that we want to play! The sudden positive respons kind of gives mixed feelings that we didn’t have before, and that could impact the game itself.

We are soon moving over to the next chapter and all the chapters are pretty much done in papers. We will also start looking into when the game will be done, so we can estimate it’s release and plan for a nice weekend of slacking.

There will be updates about the game while we are going forward but not as much! We are in no-life mode right now, and that’s the best mode to be in! When making the game.

May the coffee be with you all.
