Thought I'd mention the great new animated intro to Josh Roberts "Rise of the Hidden Sun!"

It looks fantastic. I can't wait to play this game. I've been following it for years. I have all the screenshots in my media library - old and new.

Great work Josh - kudos to your hard work.

The link! http://www.adventuregamers.com/article/id,1041

The only thing we're lacking right now is voice acting. We want to use the same voice actors throughout the whole game, so we're going to wait until the rest of the game is completely done and then record the voice acting all at the same time.

By the way, that fantastic "Rise of the Hidden Sun" logo is courtesy of Eriq!

Anyone got any idea what's going on with this project? I emailed Josh but got no reply. If anyone knows at all let us know

Oh no! I'm sorry, J.H. I don't think I ever saw your email. If I had I would have emphatically confirmed that "Rise of the Hidden Sun" *is* still in production. We just finished a new screen this weekend, actually.

Now granted, we're setting a world record for the longest "in production" period ever, but hey -- hopefully it'll be worth the interminable wait.

I've just started working on a new design blog, which I'll link to from here when it's up and running. At that point it'll be a lot easier to get a sense of our progress. I really haven't been trying to make it a mystery or anything, by the way -- I just figured after all this time there probably aren't that many people who are still interested until they actually see the finished product.

Wonderful news. But we did deserve some sign of life.

Best of luck with finishing Rise of the Hidden Sun before the end of the new decade! Well, not really - you must put together a working version ASAP or we'll create an angry mob that will come to get you!

Hi All,

I have completely redesigned the "Rise of the Hidden Sun" website! I'm treating it more like a developer's blog now, which means it's loaded with new artwork. I'm hoping to update it at least a few times a week.

What you'll find there in the coming days and weeks:

- New pencil-and-paper layouts
- Newly painted and/or re-painted background screens
- Concept art
- Character sprites
- More frequent updates

I hope you'll come on by and check it out: http://rattlesnakejake.wordpress.com/

Screenshots







Sample Character Sprite



There's also a Facebook page now, too: http://www.facebook.com/rattlesnakejake

Planning to post some new artwork next week on both the blog and the Facebook page.

Thanks,
Josh

No problem mate, just glad to see it's back in production .

We're definitely still interested, anything new is like gold dust lol.

Plus: Can you guess which classic adventure game location inspired this scene?

I think DNF and Hero6 have you beat, for now anyway.

This looks as incredible as ever - especially the screens posted. (!!!) Looks really sharp!

Fingers itching just like they were back in 2004-5??! Can't wait!!

I think the left hand "Hotel" door pattern's on Dan Lee's pencil sketch give it away - definitely feels like Spielburg!

Now this looks like something to get interested in! The amateur adventure game scene has got a lot of exciting projects going on at the moment. I wish you the best of luck with this one, it's obviously a huge investment of time, energy and skill.
