006 – ENGLISH:
Now it really happened. On 01.04.2022 the production of “of pawns & kings” officially started. It still seems like a miracle to me and I don’t think it has really arrived in my brain yet. Daniel, who moved to Münster last month, has moved into our co-working space and I can always look over his shoulder while he’s working (much to his delight 🙂 ).
Covid ran for me fortunately very relaxed ( one week quarantine and mild course ) and so I could get in the office and start just on time.
Currently there is still some bureaucracy to do ( so that the money from the funding agencies can really land on our company account ) and I try to generate media echo to this milestone. Some things have already worked out.
Münster’s newspaper the WN will report about us.
The WDR will probably report about us on TV in the local time
The online magazine Münster Aktuell will report
I am still working on other projects. I would like to have reports on Gamestar, 4players, Rocketbeans and other rather special platforms. I am always open for further ideas !
Our Gamescom 2022 appearance ( how cool is that !! ) is to plan and design.
I also created a Patreon page for the game, where interested people can support us additionally. For example, we could really use 2 new computers. Our own are groaning and groaning under the detailed scenes and characters. Unfortunately, the funding does not include options for new computers. But that is of course complaining on a really high level.
We are really living the dream now !
