|Development during week 27-2007
We continued work on Harvest. We have revealed two new aliens in the Oxeye forums,

Death Mite: http://www.oxeyegames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=49
thewreck and our friend Niklas Olsson have also created a new site for Harvest. It is currently in its beta stage, so please give us feedback what you think about it. It can be viewed here: http://www.webpal.se/harvest/
During last week we also received complaints that these "dev updates" didn't tell anything about the development of Daria. I know I'm writing in the Daria forums, and even though there haven't been been many Daria updates recently, our work on other games is always related to the development of Daria. However, I will try to write more Daria-specific information when it's possible. If you agree or disagree, please let us know! You can find the original complaint here: http://www.dawnofdaria.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1367
So... On the Daria-related side. We are currently trying to secure funding for the initial development of the game. One of the strategies we use is to make smaller games with shorter development schedules, such as Strategist and Harvest. This is risky business, of course, because it's hard to tell in advance if a game will pay for its development time. If all of our games sold around four thousand copies we would be home free. Another strategy is to seek funding from the government and other interest groups, which we also are doing.
Our goal with Harvest is to compete in the Independent Games Festival. That means our deadline is the 1st of October. It does not, however, mean that the game will be finished and released by then, but it would be a nice bonus if it was. That's the current plan, anyway.
Planned development during week 28-2007
We are continuing on Harvest. Kinten will be back in town which means we will get new artwork for the buildings!
