2019 was a huge year for us at Vanimals. This was the year that we revealed or next project to the world of Undying. We would like to take this opportunity to recap some the highlights of this year as well as what to expect in 2020.
E3 and the Undying Reveal
If you had told us last year that we would be unveiling our new game at E3 this year we wouldn’t have believed you, but that’s exactly what happened! Not only that, the reveal was dropped during the E3 Kinda Funny Games Showcase. It was so great to be featured beside so many wonderful Indies and we have to thank Greg Miller and the Kinda Funny team for letting us be a part of the show.
The E3 show floor was also such a wonderful and surreal experience for us, not only because we were featured right next to the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne booth but also because this was the first-time people would get hands on our game. The reception was amazing, and we also got great feedback. It was great to hear firsthand what clicked with people and what might need more work.
E3 was a blast and we hope to make it back there again one day!
After barely recovering from E3 we were off to Cologne for Gamescom. Easily the biggest games convention we have ever experienced. So many more people got a chance to get hands on the game and again it was wonderful to get so much feedback and hearing how many people were excited about Undying.
Gamescom also gave us the chance for us to meet really interesting people within the industry, some who might have an impact on Undying in the future.
PS4 and Nintendo Switch
When we unveiled Undying at E3 we were able to say that it was being developed for PC and console. At all the shows we attended the most common questions that were being asked were “What consoles is this coming to?” and “Is it coming to…?”. It took us a little while, but in 2019 we are happy to confirm that Undying will be coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch! We hope to add more platforms to the list in the future!
We managed to achieve a lot in 2019 (in front and behind the scenes) but what can we expect from Undying in 2020? The big one for us is getting the game in to your hands. Though that will lean towards the later part of the year, we are planning for opportunities for you to get some hands on before that through a closed beta and other opportunities. We’ll keep you updated.
We do plan to bring Undying to more shows next year as well and we’ll begin sharing news on that soon as we are able to confirm which events we will be going to.
2019 was a jam packed year for us but undoubtedly 2020 will be even bigger as we work hard to bring Undying to your PCs and Consoles. So we hope are looking forward to it!
We at Vanimals want to say a big thank you to you. We had an incredible year and it’s all thanks to your excitement. We really want to bring you the best game we can and knowing that there are people eager to play it really motivates us and we hope not to let you down.
So from all of us at Vanimals…
Happy Holidays! We’ll see you in 2020!
