The game has a website too, with a tiny bit more on the background of the game.
@rostiger The movement mechanics, artstyle and animation all look amazing.
What's the tech stack for this? Are there dev diaries somewhere?
@phryk Thank you! It is made in Unity - no FOSS involved unfortunately. We created tons of dev logs internally over the course of development, but they need to be sorted out and brought into shape, so it will still take a while.
@rostiger Cool. I'd be especially interested in how you people are handling animations because those look *smooth as fuuuuck*. :3
Also, will there be the possibility to get the game without DRM and will there be linux builds (I'm on BSD, but still… :P)?
@phryk I've continually been advocating for Linux builds, but unfortunately it's pretty low on the priority list right now. I'll keep on pushing for it though.
@phryk Oh, and the animations are a mixture between procedural and scripted. It's a fairly complex system, but we plan to publish some dev logs on it once the dust has settled a bit!
@rostiger this looks gorgeous, it must have been hard to stay quiet about it! Definitely have to get a copy when it releases!
@rostiger This looks so good! Love how smooth the movement is - I never thought I would like to move among the trees as a gibbon but this trailer made me want to it so much!
Can't wait to give it a try once it it gets released outside of apple arcade.
Any chance for DRM free version (gog, itch or other)?
@rostiger saw this on the bird site and somehow didn't make the connection to yourself. Congrats on the announcement, and more importantly the game looks like a treat
@rostiger This looks amazing, that animation is indeed something else. How is it going to be controlled?
@csepp Thanks! It's essentially a two button game, with a few extras - we tried to keep it as simple as possible for mobile.
congrats on the announcement, the game looks great in motion - capturing fluid leaps and sense of speed in an uninterrupted way is a feat
...and i just realized And Yet It Moves from your studio was one of the first indie games i played
