What else? Well, I've been getting tied up in a world of really heavy documentation hoping that, once complete, the project will run more smoothly. So what does this entail? Well there is:
- The Initial Concept
- The Game Concept
- The Game Proposal
- The Functional Specification
- The Technical Specification
I admit I made a mistake with 1 and turned it more into a mix of 2 & 3 so I'm now sorting through the self-inflicted carnage. But we’re getting there … slowly.
Here are some links on Game Documentation:
Work is also continuing on the website. This was scheduled to be completed by the end of last week, so is over-running a bit (hopefully not a sign of things to come!).

So to reiterate: the game is an Action Adventure game with elements of stealth. You play a newly turned vampire in a small coastal town in America in 1863. The game will use natural elements to either help or hinder your process in the game. All actions you take will effect how the game plays so it's up to you: use stealth or go in all guns blazing.
The game world will be a small sandbox - small as the game has size restrictions.
The game will be developed using Game Studio 3.0 (Game Studio 3.1 will come out during the competition but we will have to evaluate it as converting may cause delays).
Not much info. I know, but hopefully this will draw some interest.

Larissa has been working on some more concept art and we'll be putting some samples up on the website also by the end of the week.
A job posting for the Dream.Build.Play team was put up on the Facebook group for the LevelUp Society. For those not familiar with the group, the LevelUp Society was created to raise awareness of the fact that there are game developers in Calgary, Alberta.
