Halloween horror, 2010


We've done a Halloween pack for the last couple of years, mainly because Chris just loves all that kind of stuff. In 2008 we gave you a bunch of traditional trick or treat goodies, and in 2009 we gave you a huge selection of monsters.

This year, we're knocking the Photostorm Bones stuff into shape, updating it slightly, and adding in a couple of new bits, and we're going to get that out to you some time this week. If you've already got Bones, we've added Graveyard Grass, some silhouettes, and a less complicated animation for getting your characters to start in the grave, so that they can do the "rise from grave" thing properly.

Happy screaming!

Sounds great. I do have a request, if at all possible could we have a flying crow a little like the flying bat. To push my luck further, a perching crow able to open and shut it's mouth (talk?) would also be very useful.

Well, given we're aiming to ship it tomorrow, adding new things at this stage isn't going to happen.

Ah well, maybe next year ;)

We're looking into the possibility - and note, I said "possibility" not "guaranteed certainty" - of adding a raven (with associated animations). As Matt says, though, there's no way it'll make the pack release, so if we do it it'll be shipped as a (free) update to the pack at a later date.

I'm happy with 'possibility' at an indeterminate time in a far distant future , and no sweat I won't hold you to it. There are a lot of requests from all quarters and to be honest it's always a thrill to see what you come out with next :)

Guess what - the pack went out a day later than planned, and the raven made it in!

Perfect! Exactly what I wanted. I've plans for this. Now for the hard part, script and VA's :)

You know this is the first time I've had a 'wish' granted so quickly by MS. So whoever my fairy godmother is over there, consider yourself owed a beer ;)
