This is a resurrection post!

As any of our followers would have noticed, LF seemed to vanish off the face of the planet around four months ago, and we’d owe you a good reason for that.

To begin with, myself, Shea, lost my laptop completely after it gave up the ghost. You may remember that in the, coincidentally, last pot here. it was a troublesom event, and for 3 months was out of action. Then after finally saving up and being able to get a new computer, it’s was another month again to get back into a work flow; as a result the will to post an update on here had faded. But, that ends now, and I’ll at least be trying to keep everyone up to date on all things LF related! For we certain are not gone yet, I promise you that.

So before I get started, my sincerest of appologise on behalf of all of Lucid Flame for the extreme lack of any updates.

Onto updates!!

First up on the running list, is Legends from Thyilos, which since I came back, I released a quick patch for the current (and still last) Beta Release for the demo. The patch fixes a couple missed things that could’ve caused trouble, particular a malfunctioning Antidote which wasn’t curing Poison at all. It did cure a couple other ailments though, but none of them are ones you could get yet.
You can download that fixed Beta here if you still feel game for it. The Full Demo release will be hopefully due sometime December. I can’t assure a specific date as of yet since things have slowed down, and the production team is becoming busier with real-time work.
However, in light of the no date, I’m pleased to announce we have a musician again, who so far has already proven quality of work. The Demo will have custom tracks composed by our new team member.

Next up, is Keepers of Time, which has mostly seen artwork development as of late. You can view a couple bits of promotional art over on the Artwork section of the site, but if you want to see even more of her work, consider visiting her Deviant Art where she puts up her work more regularly.
As far as the games development goes, it’s ‘in and out’, so to speak. The ‘of Time’ dev members had been putting more focus into another upcoming game that’ll tie into the series, but I”ll discuss more of that later. So as such for the current work flow, KoT will not have a pre-ordained Demo date, nor will it have any mention of potential Open Beta Demo’s, but if circumstances change, we will notify you and encourage. As of a post earlier last month on a forum, she’s hoped to get a demo out once Prehistoria is finished.

Seed’s of Time, technically the second in the ‘of Time’ series, has its progress on hold, the main reason being the lead developer, Rosa, is focused more thouroughly on the mysertious, third game in the series; which as I mentioned is the reason for KoT to be going by a little slower. Suffice to say now, all work on SoT has not stopped. It’s still an integral part in the series, so talk about it does come in and out when we’re discussing narrative.

Now, in closing to this post, I’d like to bring up that “other” game I’ve already mentioned a few times so far which has captivated both the lovely Rose and Rosa into thinking more about it. But because I’m a tease, I wont actually discuss it yet.
Instead, I’m going to talk with the others on it, then in a later post, possibly tomorrow, we will set up an official page for it here on LF.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the mysterious “ToT”.

One last notice before I go. The Live Streaming page, which was meant to have more activity on it, was neglected. mainly because I was the only one who wanted to make use of it at the time. The page is remaining up for now in case something changes. in the mean time, you can still access it, and view older videos that were recorded.

Until next time, 😉

Beta V6 for Tales of Thyilos

Just a quick post to let people know that I’ve set a strict deadline has been put up for the final Beta Version to be done by the end of this weekend, and no later. Thanks to some very helpful people, the previous Beta Versions have had plenty of fixups, and the final Beta Release will be a fully functional comparison to what the Fully Completed Demo will be.

Of course, the Full Demo will have a schedule, and my aims are for mid June. This’ll be enough time to get in more custom elements and harness peoples’ opinions to refine details and fix issues.

Also, I’d like to let people know that the game “may” have a slight name change.

There’s a project I’ve mentioned before, and even posted some “random art” relating this it, and this project is close to becoming opening discussed here for people to read. What I will say to get you going, is that followers of Seeds of Time and Keepers of Time, will start seeing information on the third tie-in with the series; and the title that is so far the only one that we can make “fit”, happens to make the Anagram of “ToT”, hence, the possibility of a slight title change to Tales of Thyilos.
Of course, a rose by any of name still smells the same, so a slight title change wont affect the game itself. In fact, if it is changed, it’d probably be “Legends from Thyilos”, which considering the ever-expanding history and lore about the world of Thyilos, I think that title works very appropriately. You can find out tomorrow night when the Beta V6 goes up whether or not there is a title change, but relevant links will still remain as “ToT” for a short time to prevent confusion.

Now for other Lucid Flame news, the Livestream feature that was added last month may go back to work. As for myself, I am unable to do Livestreaming at home due to house renovations and network issues, but I might be able to do some Livestreaming when away at other locations. I’ve also been occasionally bringing up Livestreaming to Shadow, and if I can get her passed shyness, she may Livestream some of her artwork! So if you want to see her work flow on the go, help me out by sending her messages and comments about how you’d love to see her work in real time. 😉

That’s all the news for today, and before I go, an apology for the lack of updates as of late. So to those still bearing with us, a big thank you for you.

Enjoy the weekend, everyone.

SoT update!!

Okay!! ^^ I have a small update, but still…at least its something, right?
lol Anyway…I have a few screenshots of the interior of the houses, and the town itself. RoseReveries, the creater of KoT,  will be mapping all of my towns for SoT.  I’m still a little shaky when it comes to mapping, and I found out that me and towns…well…we’re mortal enemies.
To view the images, click on this symbol:  Oh! before I forget…the symbol that I used is the Time seed in SoT, it has a major part in the game. HuskyHeartMedia’s EmilLowell created this icon for me.

The one all the way to the left is the town itself. the 6 beside it is the interior of the houses and the shop.

I have been working on this for awhile now, and I’m just now able to start making it, but hey..at least now it’s being created. So far, I have the first map down, and I have a cave, but it’s still a work in progress, so I will not be showing it just yet. I have almost all of the storyline done, so there might be another update soon, might not. lol

Well, thanks for reading all of this rambling of mine ^^

Thanks for reading this ^^
