Their original ETA was October… 2013.

At least the port is ready from what I can tell, just some tweaks the publishers asked for, but how don’t know how big said tweaks are.

Cooldaniel/ Lightbringer, I know that you need to wait for the mobile release but have you been given any indication of when this will be yet?

ETA they gave me is by the end of July.

so light bringer bring the light to us.

Well if it gets out without more monetization options it’s pretty much the end of my career and my mortgage XD

I only hope the mobile guys get it in time now…

I dont want to pressurize u…but upload the game…NOW!

Like I said, waiting on the mobile port to get like $100k worth of advertising for “free”. The flash market can’t support games like this anymore so I have to find other ways of getting by.

@Nelly_gr just ask the 2,000+ testers or check out the gameplay vids on youtube, there are a few already.

It’s pretty much impossible to update a flash game unless you’re hosting it yourself or restricting it to just a few portals; so no, no multiplayer for LtF3.

That’s not my plan so far, but it could be a separate game built on the same engine that I created for LtF3. But I’ll probably just move to another project, or LtF4.

Sadly there won’t be a multiplayer mode. We wanted to do some form of versus at first, then decided it would be easier to create/post static challenges player could send each other, but it would’ve taken too much resources and we decided to cut the idea to finally get the game done.

I have to download the internet first, then I modify it to come prepackaged with LtF3, reupload internet and voilà, LtF3 is added. Thing is I don’t know how to code in internet language.

Plus it’s a pretty big download, like at least 10mb or something for the whole internet, so it’ll take a while on my 33kbps dial-up.

Yep, that’s the idea!

That would indeed be uploading… but any way my point is I never mentioned the game was being uploaded. I said I was waiting on the mobile port to be completed by the studio working on it… (・⊝・)

@CristobalA19 wut?

@lexography5 did I really say that? I went with 10-12 hours days for a few weeks trying to meet a dealing the mobile studio didn’t meet in the end, maybe I said that during that period. I got like a mico-burnout from that XD

Well yeah it’s been a while already. There are always stuff to work on and polish more, but testers have been playing it from start to finish for a while now.

It’s that 35 seconds spent answering people that really takes away from that 9 hours of work for sure. It’s like a 0.093% loss of productivity, except that I answer on my free time, not on work hours. ;P

@godofpoo LtF3 is without a doubt the LtF game with the most work behind it. This means extra content, slightly better graphics, stuff like that, but in the end these are not what makes a game “the best”. Add to this that we see the past with rose-tinted glasses and I’m sure some people will feel more strongly towards previous games. Judging from the feedback so far though I’d say I did a pretty good job nonetheless, with quite a few people saying that it is indeed the best one so far.

@matqq Yeah beta was “open” for a few weeks to people who follow the development.

@Tulrog I’m a pen and paper kind of guy, yeah. Most of the design was actually brainstorming, developing various ideas, gathering material, evaluating existing titles to see what worked… and eventually I just go through all that, decide what will make it to the game and what won’t, and organize all of it. Organize is kind of a big word here cause I’m really not an organized type either, but the ideas and guidelines were already set before I began really creating it. Now it’s mostly a mess of loose sheets spread all across the house.

If you didn’t get sick, the things on the game would be the style of 2012 flash games which is less entertaining than 2015.

Meh, that’s pretty far-fetched. LtF3 was gonna be a step above LtF2 anyway. The long production time allowed me for extra design time perhaps, so in a way it will probably have produced a better game, BUT like cooldaniel says, instead of maybe 110% of LtF3, we could’ve had 100% of LtF3 and 100% of LtF4.

Plus I’m not really sure I would say 2015 flash games are better than earier ones. I’ve had the most fun with flash games with pretty old titles, and few recent ones I would consider as good. The execution is generally better, but the game are not necessarily more fun because of that.

lol LtF3 was a harsh lesson in project scale.

If the LtF2 mobile port really works out I could probably keep making flash games for little money just with the aim of giving visibility to the mobile ports. That could be nice. We’ll see how things go I guess.

Haha for real? I thought I was like the last big flash dev who hadn’t moved to mx or to another platform :P

Everyone who applied for beta was invited, it was the objective. Anyone following development could basically play the full game before the release.

Probably some time between now and next year.

My kind of ETA ( ・o・)ง

But like I said, not up to me anymore so I can’t estimate anything. It’s down to sponsors, negotiations and the mobile port being ready.

Sponsors have begun testing the game. We’re getting there!

Sorry for being a complete idiot but… Are you trying to release the game at the same time the mobile version would get released? if so, is that really necessary?

I’m not rushing you or anything, just asking

That’s the plan yeah, and that’s mostly because the game will give us millions of views in visibility, which would cost tens of thousands if done through regular advertisement. That’s some value we can’t just let slip by, especially with the current state of mobile games market.

Nah I’ll just go for the end of the world instead. Should solve all my ETAs issues.

But at this point the goal for me is simply ASAP. This reminds me that I really need to ask where the mobile guys are now.
