In this update, we are shifting focus over to the environment team. This group has been busy working on the stylised look of each environment type and also on the mechanics of map creation and generation
Last weekend Julian attended the EGX show to promote Phoenix Point. EGX (formerly Eurogamer Expo) is the UK's largest video game expo. It took place in Birmingham, England at the National Exhibition Centre over the course of a four day weekend.
One of the most eagerly anticipated aspects of Phoenix Point that people have been waiting to catch a glimpse of is the Geoscape. The good news is, we finally have something to show you. The Strategic Layer team have been working hard to start assembling all of the pieces. There are some very interesting things to cover regarding the strategic layer, and you may have heard some already.
It has been a while since we posted an update, but things have been very busy behind the scenes. One of the biggest events has been relocating the Snapshot Games development team to a new building. With Phoenix Point being Snapshot Games' most ambitious project to date, we're increasing the team to three times the size of that which we had working on Chaos Reborn.
We have been working with CrowdOx to get our pre-order store up and running. If you wish to back Phoenix Point but haven't already done so, now is your chance. The pre-order store offers a large selection of our original backer tiers
Over the last couple of weeks, Snapshot Games has been working to migrate all of our backers over to a new backer management system. We are delighted to announce that we are working with CrowdOx and will be ready to go live soon.
It has been a very busy week at E3 for both Julian and David, who have been dedicating all of their time to driving the exposure of Phoenix Point and planning for the future. During this week, Julian and David were able to take a very short break from business meetings to perform an exclusive live stream and engage with the community.
Julian travelled to Los Angeles on Sunday to head up some business meetings at E3. On Tuesday, Snapshot Games will be teaming up with Alienware and a new, zero latency streaming service called Caffeine. Julian will be streaming the developer build of Phoenix Point LIVE from E3.
