This month, we’re talking about the Indie X festival and the new demo for End of Lines that you can try out on Steam.
Have a look below for the details on the new demo, as well as a look at new art from the game.
Indie X Online Festival 2022
We’re very happy to take part in the Indie X Festival this year!
End of Lines was selected in the top 50 finalists out of more 500 entries, which is quite an achievement.
We won’t attend the physical festival in Lisbon, however, we’ll be part of the online part of the festival with a special Q&A live stream on November 7th at 2PM CET.
We’ll relay the news on our social channels so please keep your eyes peeled. In the mean time, you can go and visit the Indie X Online festival website, lots of great games are attending!
Also, the festival comes with a special event on Steam. To celebrate, we decided to update our demo and to make it public for the duration of the festival, starting right now!
Try End of Lines updated demo on Steam now
To properly celebrate our participation in the Indie X festival, the demo of our upcoming interactive novel End of Lines will be available on Steam starting right now until November 15th.
The demo showcases the first chapter of the game. We made several tweaks to the art and to the story, but the most striking upgrade is the music and sound design which went through final recordings with live musicians since our last demo during June’s Steam Next Fest.
We really hope you will enjoy it!
What have we been up to?
Since our last issue, we made a lot of progress on End of Lines and crossed a big milestone: the game is now playable in its entirety from start to finish in all variations of the story. We still have some adjustments to make on the texts and the scripts, but we’re quickly approaching the “beta” state, to the joy of the team.
On the art side, Nico and Julie are now busy on upgrading all the illustrations from placeholder images to release-ready art. We also had the joy to welcome a new art intern last week: Liannesoa Farge, who will be with us until the end of the year. You can check out her portfolio on Artstation.
She worked on the background of this month’s new image, an ensemble shot of our main characters from chapter two. She will also give us a hand on a secret project (we’ll tell you more about that when we’re ready, but let me tell you right away that 2023 promises to be quite an eventful year for Nova-box).
That’s all for now, see you next month!
Please consider adding End of Lines to your wishlist on Steam! (it helps make the game more visible at release).
