Project Update: The Archives of Wyndia - Into the Cloudline Original Soundtrack

If I've been overly silent about my visual novel project, The Archives of Wyndia, there has definitely been some great noise going on elsewhere. Mainly, from Leila 'Woofle' Wilson on our official soundtrack, which is now set to go on sale December 20th, in both digital and physical formats.

Leila 'Woofle' WIlson has added a teaser of highlights from our soundtrack to her Youtube channel.

Leila is using Bandcamp for her digital sales, so you'll be able to pick practically any possible lossless or lossy format you could dream of. Compact Discs are also available.

I can't say enough about what it has been like to work with Leila. Her music has been a source of constant inspiration, and her talent speaks for itself. I can't wait for the release of our soundtrack on December the 20th. You can hear more music from Woofle on her web site.

Production Journal: There's a Story Here

I wish I knew the narrative that these wonderful ornaments are based on. I admired them each on my way to the office this morning, and there is clearly a story behind them, but I don't know it. I'll be looking into it further.

I'm very moved by the glyphs. I'd like to incorporate something similar into the creation story of Wyndia.

Project Update: Building The Towers of Wyndia

Last night I was fuming to my friend Alan about how hard it is to draw some of the structures in the world of Wyndia from above, or other more unusual angles, and he reminded me about Google's product, Sketchup.

I immediately scrapped my pretty-broken-looking work in progress and switched my planning to Sketchup.

Today I've started building the structures of my world in 3D, so that I can get all those difficult camera angles with ease.

My plan is to create models for each of the 6 major towers, and then export out the angles I want every time I need to paint a new background. I like this method because one model becomes an extremely detailed sketch for a limitless number of background paintings.

I'm so glad that Alan reminded me about Sketchup.
