FANTASY FRIDAY XLIII
The Alpha and the Omega

Dramatic title aside, I hope you’re all doing swell on this beautiful Friday afternoon.

As you’ve probably guessed, this is indeed the last of the Fantasy Friday showcases as I hand off the marketing and PR to our publisher (who, rest assured, will be given a name shortly). So while I can't promise you any more regular updates, this is something truly magnificent. We'll be working with our publisher to produce more trailers, stunning screenshots, and exclusive interviews to better market Dawn of Fantasy. Who knows, you may even see us at some of the big gaming conventions this Fall. ;)

The last 42 FFs have been a blast, and I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I have. Although we have TONS more features to show off (including our new boxart, new animations and artwork, new icons, character development and customization, quests, Online Kingdom updates, new stronghold defenses, new research techs, new wall and building textures for a greater variety, a new unit GUI, Reverie Online, PvP warfare, naval warfare, unique mercenaries, and new strongholds and environments), I figured I would do something a little different today. Rather than focusing on one specific feature, I’d like to share some of my favorite screenshots with you as a sneakpeak of everything to come. So I'll just leave you with these many screenshots below and let you analyze them as I'm sure you've read enough of my thoughts by now. :) Just look carefully and you'll see some of the unannounced features we've been working on.

Amazing screenshots! Alex, thank you very much for these great FFs. Although I'd definately love to see more of your new boxart, new animations and artwork, new icons, character development and customization, quests, Online Kingdom updates, new stronghold defenses, new research techs, new wall and building textures for a greater variety, a new unit GUI, Reverie Online, PvP warfare, naval warfare, unique mercenaries, and new strongholds and environments, I think for now this will suffice.

By the way, if you guys will be at a gaming convention, can I get invited? :P I wouldn't want to miss out on such an event.

Cheers, and thanks for the truly magnificent shots! Farewell Fantasy Fridays, I bid you well.

We'd love to see you! None of the details have been finalized yet, including which conventions we plan on being at or who will be there to represent Reverie.

Great screenshots! It's sad to see the fantasy Fridays go, they gave me something to really look forward to. But they were great and the game will be just as great when I get my hands on it.

I'm still quite curious to see who this publisher is and am glad that they will soon be revealed.

And I would second that second of the second second, but that might seem redundant, so I won't.

Wow. The last Fanfry. I have to admit, I am kind of sad to see it happen.
Then again, Those pictures were truly epic. I am glad things are moving forward for Dawn of Fantasy's publication... and the opportunity for me to purchase it.

With all these delays, could you not relase one more? I would like more battles thats not sieges with army against army clashing in the middle of the map... or something like that.
But I'll try to chase down a Vindictus beta key until the third wave starts. :)

I have to say it is looking just amazing and having some high rez picks finally shows the greatness this game will become, you guys got a sleeper hit here, as again an rts / x4 player I haven't seen anything come close.

There is one thing thou, I noticed, being a bit nit picky I guess but your still in closed beta, I noticed this on a few screens prior when I first seen this game and it still bothers me just something I noticed that remains to be noticed for whatever reason my brain picks it out each time. Everything in most every screen shot fits, except items with wheel. rams etc... what bothers me is the textures don't seem to be there, that or there is no grain the cut wood effect? IE wood that was cut into something, it could be the lighting reflecting off a brighter object (IE higher bloom) but that is something that has been sticking in my head everytime I see a screen shot with such graphic in it. Eh my two cents, figured I would throw that out there being I want this game to be the best! no offense ment.

Hmm, not sure if I quite follow you, but I'll look into this. We're editing a lot of our textures to look better with the bloom effects. :)
