[LBA Prequel] LBA Prequel - Teaser Movie #1
 
The LBA Prequel Team is proud to (finally) release to the public its first slideshow video, showcasing some of the great concept work, atmospheric music, Prequel CGI, in-game models, and even a little voice acting! This slideshow has been delayed because we had been waiting to release it exclusively to a particular website, but instead have decided something more up-to-date would be better. Keep in mind that this was done 3-5 months ago, when we were still showcasing concept art rather than in-game models. We hope you enjoy this clip! For more information (and a smaller download size), there will be a flash version available at the LBA Prequel Blog.

You can download the file here.

:eek: awesome concept art
the music is great too

Double-J 2007-08-18 16:53

Yeah, I hope you guys like it. I'm sorry it doesn't contain more in-game footage, but the slideshow was done about 3 months ago, so it may seem a bit outdated at this point. :D

morshem 2007-08-18 17:19

Looking really great :) .





Although I don't see what's the point of making it a 40 MBs video, while it can just as well be a 2 MBs PowerPoint presentation :p .

Double-J 2007-08-18 17:21

Well, there is actually a much smaller FLV version we're working on posting on the blog, but the embed plugin has a few kinks to work out. Should be up in a few hours, Alex is on it (thank goodness for him!) ;)

LBAWinOwns 2007-08-18 17:25

What is said in the first 20 seconds?

Yea of course we wanted more in game footage, but this one is great too, and as you said 3 months old.

ChaosFish 2007-08-18 17:44

The concept art is more than awesome. Luke's talent is really something amazing.

LBAWinOwns 2007-08-18 17:47

Yea, the music is great too!, I'm sure there is some other game I heard it from before, beginning of Civilization for SNES!

Nahhh, you didn't get the feeling of this slideshow :). The images changes according with the music, something we couldn't handle well with MSPP. Also this way everyone could actually watch it. Btw, this takes a lot of hours to do.

Streg 2007-08-18 18:06

All sketches and models are great!
The music is magical! Who made it

xesf 2007-08-18 18:08

You have a credit list in the end :rolleyes:

Open Office anyone ;)?

Windows Media Player says that I'm missing some codec(s), and it won't run. Downloading 10 minutes for nothing. :sigh:

Double-J 2007-08-18 19:51

K-Lite Codec Pack should help...;)

May be similar, but it is definitely not the same. All of our music are original tunes (except for a remix of an LBA theme) by either Jesse or Dopey. ;)

And as Alex said, the credits list who did what, so...umm...read them! :p

Double-J 2007-08-18 19:53

And also, the considerably smaller Flash version is up on the blog and working thanks to Alex. If you're having problems (Kobold), try this version rather than downloading the big 42 meg version. ;)

It's one of Hegesippe's line from the first chapter of the story.

"I'm worried about the old man. He's getting up there in years, and the fool may have really hurt himself this time."

And I'm doing the voice. :p

Kobold 2007-08-18 19:58

I'm getting the Codec Pack as flash is always too slow for me, but it's taking even longer to download. >.<

That video better be good. :p

Now I'll have to write that into the script.

NPC: Hey, Hegesippe, how are you doing?

Hegesippe: TEH SEX!!!!!

NPC: O....k.

Hopefully the LBA 1 engine can handle more Rosa the Cow type sequences.

Nope, in PowerPoint it would be about the same size.

No... (I'm quite certain of)

Kobold 2007-08-18 23:03

Finally got it to work. It looks good, the music is great. I sorta like the pirate ship grid, too. But in the end, the voice gets cut off, I only hear "pirates". Is that intended?

xesf 2007-08-18 23:09

Nop is not. You must hear "The pirates are coming, and I'm going to be ready for them!"
