Recap 2020, future plans

Well, Hello! It’s me Alex and I’m finally writing a post again, it’s been a long time since I last wrote one. So in this post, I wanted to talk about the last year and the future of the Studio and Afterfall of course.

Past year recap

So, we kinda stopped posting anything in June 2020. No specific reason, to be honest, I can only guess it was because of the stress at that time and everyone is busier than before. It didn’t change much, by the way, we still have personal things that need to be taken care of first.

But don’t get me wrong, we still did work on Afterfall and other projects! Just without telling as much as before. We have great plans for Afterfall still and also have some pretty cool Projects we will introduce, hopefully, this year!

2020 really was a weird year, I can’t even tell what we did and whatnot, to be honest, we did so much behind the scenes stuff that will help us as a team to work more efficiently than before. I did so much on our APIs, reworked most of them, added many new things, and wrote some concepts about things like the Afterfall Inventory system.

Leon worked on getting animations back into the project and some nice characters, while I worked on some core gameplay systems such as dialogues, items, nameplates, and the chat system.

Most of our time has been invested into the big secret project, many hours designing, planning and structuring it. Now we finally can work on getting it some life! We will probably get this project to atleast work before we will publish any new Afterfall versions.

Meanwhile, Leon has been working on his small side-project “DispatchGUI” which is currently being developed for other developers using Discord Systems. While I was working on, as always back-end stuff.

Future plans for 2021/22

I can’t say for sure what will happen in the next few years, but I hope we can show you the secret project and let you see what we have planned with it.

We’re also aiming for new Testing Builds of Afterfall, maybe even some Recaps again ;D

I’ll try and publish another post where I’ll show the current progress of Afterfall.

That was all I wanted to let you know for now. I just wanted to say “We’re still here, doing the usual stuff”! I wish y’all a nice day and that you stay safe in the current situation!
