    Hi! i bought the original for my 4s way back at 2014 (it was awesome exploration), then noticed this went free today and am downloading it.
    Then came here and saw the thread, and just sent a prayer for your cat. I have one also, and have known the loss a couple of times already, so i understand.

    That is so touching. Thank you from my heart for saying that, and I'm sorry about your losses - they are heartbreaking.

    Ive been lucky because we thought we would have less than a week with him. Now it has been almost three months. He is still filled with energy, but today the vet said it will not be long. He has cancer, and it is strange how the rest of his body and mind can be so energetic, but that one part can bring all of that down. He is sleeping with me as i type this, and i am just grateful to spend this time together.

    This was fun. I updated trailer for BrightRidge - made from in-game footage captured and edited on iPad Pro. Its the first time i edited video on one and it was a real eye opener




    I used LumaFusion app and totally recommend it. I biught it yesterday and by the night the trailer was ready to go

    Vandgels is a solo indie project and the sequel to Nimian Legends BrightRidge. I’m excited to share the world and adventure soon.

    Meow! :)

    My goal is September 1 - im working on it full time so we will see, and its almost a year behind schedule. I had to do all the technical updates - converting to c#, iphone x support, etc - but now im able to work on game content again so im pretty happy.

    September 1 marked in my calendar ;)
    I got some glimpses of all the technical stuff you had to deal with, thanks to you sharing all that info with us. So, from the viewpoint of an IT professional - taking all those technical necessities into account - 1 year behind schedule is peanuts, nothing to worry about ;)

    I'm even more hard-pressed for free time than before. But if you need someone to help with testing at some point, I'll shovel free as much as I can.

    ‪It’s a small touch I always wanted to add - your character will kneel down after remaining idle. Find a beautiful spot in Vandgels and take in the world around you in quiet #NimianLegends #ios #android #appletv #openworld #rpg #game #nature #waterfalls #indie‬

    Great stuff as usual, Robert! Very impressed with the landscape you show in the Sentroid Battle video, and really looking forward to exploring it.

    I’m glad you like it it’s more mountainous than BrightRidge - very vertical, and chilly

    Now you can shape change into a Baedil :) here’s a screen shot taken on my iPad Pro. This is one of my favourite spots at the bottom of shadow wisp Falls

    I decided to keep the custom focal angle option I’ve been using for my own tests. Playing with it you can get a look like when they shoot vast nature scenes, kind of like Tour de France:)

    That looks great, especially the screenshot shown for the video in your above post. Do I see it right that the field-of-view is wider than it used to be in Brightridge?

    By the way, since the last build you put on Testflight (unless I missed one), Brightridge is labeled "Vandgels" for me. Mistake or intentional?
