                Looking great.

                If I were to nit-pick, id say the intro is a bit too long (found myself skipping), the radio audio is a bit high range (comes off as bad quality, not immersive bad quality). Also would be nice to have some variety on the footsteps (squeaky shoe, wooden floor boards, hard tiles, carpets etc). The art is fantastic as is the lighting and mood it sets.

                    Thanks for your feedback Djinghis
                    You have a good point about the duration of the intro. We're definitely going to have a look on this.

                    Thanks!

                          Hey all!



                          We are very excited about all the positive feedback and some extremely helpful advice and suggestions from all of you who played the first demo of Westwood Shadows!

                          When we first started this game it was just 2 people with no experience at all in making games but with a lot of passion and many stories to tell! We then released the demo to start getting feedback and this happened. Suddenly this game started to draw more attention and love from people around the world.

                          It is your love and support that drove us into making a few decisions. First of all, the User Interfaces are getting a redesign. We consulted many gamers and we put a lot of thinking into making the user experience, as pleasant and easy to use as possible.

                          The inventory and Journal of the game were the first Interfaces to be redesigned and recoded. Below is a screenshot of the Journal.



                          The coding of the game as it was by the time of the release of the demo has been fully replaced with a much more efficient and clean version. This fixes the issues with some frame lagging and overall feel during gameplay. Saving and loading the game has also been implemented with new User Interface as seen below.



                          *Difficulty mode is something we are still considering but is not it our current list of things to do. We would love to hear your thoughts about this in the comments.

                          Most of the re-design of the core of the game is complete but there are still lots to do. Therefore the release of the game will be transferred for 2021.

                          Before we wrap up this post we wanted to thank you all again for playing the first demo by sharing this compilation we made out of the videos you shared!




                          Till the next time we hope you all stay safe and enjoy gaming!
                          We will keep you posted with further spoiler-free updates!
