July is here, and shit is about to get HOT! We’re making extra-sure the new version of the DCV is stable on all operating systems so we set aside more time for QA than is likely necessary, but we have to allot time for finding bugs and fixing said bugs. So sorry for the wait.
Some of you have been asking for actual work from the comic, so here you go. This is a first person perspective view, which is one of the image options available in the DCV comics (along with alternative angles, x-ray view, and animation) . I’ll leave you to contemplate just exactly who’s eyes we’re looking through…
I was going to write a long-winded post addressing everyone’s impatience, but I gotta be honest… I am tired, you guys. I have renders queued up and will continue working through the night. I will give no further insight into a possible release date because I really don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up again, and I really don’t know how long yet it could be. I am working on it full-time… that’s all the truth I can provide.
Enjoy the render, and keep an eye on the website and your emails for our newsletter which will announce its release. If you have not already, ensure you receive the email announcement by adding email@example.com to your sender safe list. Take care.
With numerous real life factors over the last two weeks (had to help the girlfriend move, my roommate is moving out so I need to find a new roommate, and did some pro bono graphic design work for a friend) and then factors related to Dark Rift (DCV engineer not being able to get off of work for beta phase, issues with updating the store plugin, and, oh… the comic not being finished), the release date is being pushed back.
Just wanted to share a cropped sample of one of the desktop wallpapers bundled with the DCV-enabled first episode of Dark Rift. Those who bought Clara Ravens Episode 3 Epilogue know that the DCV-enabled comics are bundled with additional ‘bonus’ content, including character bios, 3D character turntables that you can spin with your mouse for 360 degree views, and desktop wallpapers. As with Clara Ravens Episode 3 Epilogue, Dark Rift will have 3 different wallpapers (one of which will not contain blatant nudity, but will be sexy, for those who want to have a wallpaper to safely display on their monitor without suffering the judgement of friends/family) with each wallpaper in 6 different, common monitor resolutions.
Here is a cropped and scaled down version of one of the wallpapers featuring Polly. You can see her teasing you as she climbs up some crates to get to a case waiting on top of a storage cage, but teases you by showing you the goods as she ascends.
