Firstly, sorry for the late reply, my weeks been pretty nonstop so far. So as ever thanks for all the positive comments, they are all really appreciated and really pleased so many people are enjoying the video series. there have been quite a few messages/questions which have come in and sadly I just can’t answer some of them, rather than addressing them all individually I’ll try to answer them all in one big answer below, I’ll apologise in advance if any answers seem vague , but we are very weary of not wanting to over promise , so because of that I can’t confirm what will be in future iterations of sable, sure we have some future plans and additions we’d like to add, but sometimes even the best laid plans just don’t work out, so we’d much rather focus on what Sable can currently do, rather than what additions might or might not make it into future versions. . The same thing is true for release dates/timescales, we’re all avid gamers here at ebon sky studios, so we get just as excited about new projects as everyone else, we want to ourselves make our own RPG audio games, but we also want to share our development tools with the community so you can all build your own RPG audio games too, we’re excited about seeing those games too so we do understand why people are asking about release dates. I’ve seen developers give rough indications of timescales before though, and although most people respect they are guide lines, some will take that as an exact date and because of that we just don’t want to tie ourselves down to even a rough timescale at this stage , we all have lives and sometimes unexpected stuff happens which can slow things down. What I will say though, is before we release Sable we want to release our first two game titles created using Sable, which will give us a chance to road test sable, apply tweaks and adjustments where necessary, but I can say by the same token, no we are not talking about a ten year wait for Sable as someone suggested. . We do have plans to get people onboard for beta testing of our games and also Sable, again I don’t want to give specific details on this at this stage, since we’re simply just not ready for testers yet. However, when we do start looking for beta testers, I assure you we will put out an invite to the forum here and the mailing list too. finally, yes we are already confident in Sable, if we weren’t we wouldn’t have done the video series, but we also wouldn’t be working on our first game title either , which the whole team is currently busy working away on, and as soon as we have more details on that title we will again be sure to share that with everyone.
Again, I apologise if my answers seem vague, but we just don’t want to fall into the trap of over promising or setting dates which we can’t be certain of ourselves, I do assure you though when we have specific dates for Sable or are game titles we will be sure to let you all know and you can always keep up to date with news and updates by subscribing to our YouTube channel, or following us on social media.
