[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.

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I'm sorry it doesn't contain more in-game footage, but the slideshow was done about 3 months ago, so it may seem a bit outdated at this point.

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 .

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!)

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

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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?

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