    Hi All!

    Good news! The project is going to take a few turns and twists so that we can get things back on a roll.

    The first thing I want to mention is that for support reasons I'm switching the development language from Python, (which is awesome), to Unity3d so that we can support as many platforms as possible including Linux.

    The second is that I've spent the contributions from the last campaign in getting some concept art and logo design done as well as involving a 3d artist so that we can start and generate some awesome content.

    We're preparing to run a campaign on kickstarter.com but that is a few months away so for the time being if you would like to keep up to date with regular posts and demo videos please go to our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/La-Vida/165050630296998 where you'll be able to see all our progress as we move towards getting funding.

    We will be posting at least twice a week if not more to show things as they happen so please come over!

    Mike

    Changing to Unity3D is a wise choice Mike!

    In a matter of a couple of weeks I managed to make a small first-person shooter, that's how easy it is to use. Not to mention it supports Blender's .blend format off the bat.

    I'm glad you're still working on this, good going with the Facebook page too!

    All the best

    Well I resisted the idea for a long time as I wanted to stay with Python. But, that wasn't happening as the 3d libraries arent easy to support across all platforms so Unity3d won in the end.

    Also, if you visit the facebook page please click the like button and help spread the word!

    Hey Mickey, best of luck with the campaign.

    I am a bit disappointed you're dropping the open source aspect, but since you're the main guy who's pushing this forward and doing all the work, it's completely your call and I wish you the best!

    Ah! but will I?

    To be honest I would like to earn a living whilst developing the game but there's nothing to say I wont opensource later. A bit like Id did with doom and quake.

    Plus, for the time being there are mostly people who want to play the game on linux and not so many looking to program, hence the choice of Unity3d as I can develop by myself on that platform while there arent many people looking to help develop the game.

    So releasing the source doesn't seem to be the main concern for the project right now, and if enough people want it I may well do so.

    I suppose it all depends on the level of support the game gets from the linux community when its time to for the kickstarter. If the community shows support then it will have a game to play first then later some code to extend and learn from

    Lets see what happens

    Wow, I've always wanted a Sims like game for Linux! And the demo videos look really great! The logo is nifty, too, of course.

    Is there a page available to see what features etc etc it will have, or is aiming for that I can read?
