DEMO Now available for Pre-Orderers!
As a token of our thanks for your trust, support, and patience over the past months and years, we have released a CC2 demo for anyone who has pre-ordered the game.
If you pre-ordered the game before today, you should have received an email from me with a private download link. Otherwise, the CC2 demo will be included in the package you are sent when you pre-order the game through our distributor, BMT Micro.
The demo includes a tutorial and initial level of the game, with a handful of the rewards and dinosaurs that are in the full game. The demo will eventually be available to the public – probably once the full game is released in coming weeks.
This year has been a very busy one for Tim and I, as we have been working very hard to get the biggest game project of our lives completed after 3 years of on and off development.
So if you want a taste of Caveman Craig 2 TODAY then pre-order the game! You also get Caveman Craig: SE to play immediately until the full version of CC2 is released.
On behalf of Tim and I, we wish you all a very happy new year and we are very excited about what 2012 will bring for Parabox Games.
Don’t forget to pre-order!
With the majority of my animation work done on CC2, I just wanted to take a moment to encourage you to pre-order the game!
Over the past few years that we’ve been working on this great sequel, I’ve also had the opportunity to work on a number of animated TV shows and films (Disney’s Kick Buttowski, Big Green Rabbit, Wakkaville and feature film; Santa’s Apprentice – just to name a handful) which have fueled and nurtured my animation skills beyond what you would have seen in the original Caveman Craig game. This is just one small reason to have confidence that CC2 is gonna be great!
CC2 has over 12 new dinosaurs. There are 4 challenging stages in which you must defeat 4 different enemies (we’re keeping the last one especially secret!). There are also 5 or so bonus levels and minigames between each stage. There’s a big rewards catalogue with well over 35 items you can buy to help Craig through the levels. Things like catapults, mammoths, natural disasters and lookout towers.
As an incentive to pre-order the game, we are offering “Caveman Craig: Special Edition” as a freebie to those who preorder before the game’s release. We’re hoping the game will come out early in the new year. Get onto www.cavemancraig.com to preorder.
Have a Merry Christmas and a happy new year! Treat yourself (or someone you tolerate) to a preorder of CC2!
Back in Action
It’s been almost exactly one month since my last entry.. sorry about that! Christmas and what, o’ course.
It has indeed been a busy month for many reasons, but fortunately for you all, CC2 is one of them. The finish line is getting closer and closer, I promise you we’re not running in circles =) In fact we’ve made some significant leaps over the past weeks.
Ricky Garcia has finished the final masters for the CC2 soundtrack. And it is simply fantastic! We never thought we’d get such an exclusively professional & fitting bunch of tracks. Hopefully within days we’ll have something to show you featuring some of the music that Ricky has composed.
Tim has completed all of the caveman animations and a majority of all the artwork in the game.
Having recently spent a week chilling in a big ocean liner, I’m now getting myself back into the pace of things. I’ve made a start on most of the bonus minigames, and one or two of them are almost done & dusted. The Meteor Dodge game in particular is looking pretty awesome and it plays even better.
There are only a few more Sound FX to complete, and we only have a handful more rewards to put together. I recently recreated the pet dino (which featured in CC: SE) reward/bonus. Pet dino’s latch onto dinosaur threats and slowly drain their health. If you manage to get a male and female pet dino and they fully grow, they start having baby dinosaurs that also grow up and fight for you. A fun and handy investment.
Unfortunately, at this point CC2 won’t be released before the beginning of next year. However we plan to release a demo of the game before new years. Whether this will be for all to taste or just for those who have pre ordered the game is yet to be decided.
Thank you all for your ongoing support! Not long now!
