Hey everyone! Burning Earth Chris reporting in with an update on what’s going on behind the scenes here at Burning Earth Productions.
What happened to Channel Update Videos?
First, I think a bit of explanation is in order. I want to make it clear that I love producing these videos, but between work and school and dividing our time between our projects, it is not always possible for us to produce and release them in a reasonable amount of time. To that end, we will be holding off on producing Channel Update videos until further notice, and instead we’ll be using our Blog to update all of you on our projects. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope we can bring back video updates at some point in the future; in the meantime, we hope you will consider subscribing to our mailing list so we can update you on how things are coming along.
Updated Patreon Tiers and Goals!
Most of you may already know this, but in case you don’t, we have a Patreon and a Ko-Fi page set up in the event that our fans want to support us. We have been tinkering around with adding new benefits and potential goals for those who wish to support us on either of these sites; our Patreon page is now a bit more fleshed out with goals and how we can give back to our fans by reaching these goals. In addition, we have also added an extra perk to our Patreon tiers, so that any potential Patrons on Patreon can ask us anything they want, and we will answer their questions in the next monthly update post — and the more you donate, the more questions you can ask us for the month!
New LP Schedule!
As the summer months come to a close, we will be changing our LP schedule. As many of you know, we have been releasing videos of our Let’s Play series every Tuesday and Thursday night; however, I will be returning to school starting this week, and I will need time to focus on my studies. To this end, starting on the week of August 30th, we will be changing our Let’s Play schedule from every Tuesday and Thursday night to every Friday and Saturday evening in order to give us enough time to get new episodes edited and uploaded.
Status of Let’s Play Homeworld Remastered
At this point, we are about halfway finished with Let’s Play Homeworld Remastered; the game’s campaign consists of about 16 missions. As we close in towards the end of this Let’s Play, I still haven’t decided what game we can chronicle next, but I do have a few ideas. We will let you all know what the next game will be before we reach Homeworld’s final mission.
Sons of Centauri Update!
Voice acting has begun on our visual novel/video game project, Sons of Centauri! We are also just about finished with the website and plan to launch it as soon as it’s ready; additionally, the framework for the base game is also nearing completion, and soon we can start hard-coding the story and script into it. It has been a tedious but worthwhile experience learning the ins and outs of the Unreal Engine for this project, and we hope that we can deliver a very promising, if different, visual novel experience when it is finished.
That’s all for now. We will see you all in the next update!
