Official Site is Now Up

Friday, June 29th, 2007

I figured it was about time to put up the official site. The official site can be found here:

The official site doesn’t have any flashy animations or other graphical excesses yet. We’ll worry about that stuff once the game is launched. I’ll still be making updates to this dev diary (the dev diary is linked from the official site), but I thought it was time to consolidate all the info here and make it easy for people to see the latest screen shots and videos without having to dig through a bunch of blog posts.

Again, I’ll continue to update this dev diary every Friday.

Video Clip of Apartment Walkthru

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

Here’s the first video clip from SocioTown:
Video Clip of Apartment Walkthru(22MB)

It’s basically just a walkthru of one of the apartments, but hopefully it will give you a little idea of the look and feel of SocioTown. Since we’re getting close to the limited public testing (middle of August), I’m going to try to post at least 2-3 video clips between now and then.

The next clip will probably demonstrate using and buying various items in SocioTown. Then the following clip will show the actual social system in action. Finally, hopefully I can do a quick clip of one of the sub-games (they’re not simple little Mini-games, so I call them sub-games) depending if they’re far enough along. *crosses fingers*

Also, every Friday I’ll be revealing a little information about SocioTown. So make sure you start checking back regularly. Hope you enjoy the video clip!
