One of the biggest projects in Kickstarter history: Shenmue III, finally received a new update on its Kickstarter campaign page. Titled “Month 3 Progress report,” gives a glimpse at new screenshots (work in progress) and details on the titles current development progress.
Here are some of the details that are discussed on their Kickstarter page:
“In this phase of the development, the major work being done is the map testing. Map testing will define the different areas to make sure they are neither too big, nor too small to get to that Goldilocks zone. This consists of looking at the layout of a certain space, and experimenting to make necessary alterations. For example, an outside area may feel too open. That space may be reduced by 20%, and the number of people there increased from 10 to 16, to affect the proper consistency and density of the area.”
“All elements in the following screen shots are still in testing. Objects are being used as place holders, like the men in black suits, and Ryo is also an older model. Backgrounds and buildings are also still in the development stage and will see reworking. Shots for the two battle scenes were taken at angle to avoid spoilers as much as possible.”
