We were recently interviewed by Regine Debatty of the well known art & technology blog we make money not art. It’s a nice little conversation that gives much insight into our thoughts about games in general and The Endless Forest in particular.
24 May 2006: Michael and Auriea participate in Beauty in the age of digital art panel discussion at Okno Public01, Brussels.
23 May 2006: Drama Princess symposium.
On Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May, we will give ABIOGENESIS performances that will be projected in the Lumiere cinema in Maastricht at the occasion of the KunstTour. So take your deer to Twin Gods Hill at around 3 PM (GMT+2) for a spectacular little show. Or see it on the big screen if you happen to be in the neighborhood.
We are proud to announce the release of version 2.0 of The Endless Forest today! This is a very exciting release which includes the ability to change the look of the deer avatars using Forest Magic, the first wave of new expressive actions, a lovely forest hang-out in the form of a hollow Old Oak Tree, further development of our ABIOGENESIS system, and more surprises! All this, and of course numerous bug fixes and overall improvements, make this a must have release. We truly look forward to seeing you in The Forest!
26 Apr 2006: Phase Two of The Endless Forest is released.
For those of you who have not been daring enough to try the experimentalstreaming beta client (which has been updated almost nightly with new additions) We have compiled an updated beta of the Screensaver version of The Endless Forest.
This new version contains The Pond area and everything you need to witness the ABIOGENESIS performances in their full glory.
So, if you are interested in these new features download version 1.5 beta 12 of The Endless Forest Screensaver.
I am sure we will meet some of you in Leuven. And as usual, see you in The Forest!
