Colors! 3D dev diary – Tomorrow we sail!
It’s been a hectic couple of weeks, and I’ve realized that I never posted the big news here. Colors! 3D has a release date in the US (all of the Americas, really) and it is April 5. That’s tomorrow!
I’ve been busy preparing for the big launch, sending out review codes to media and the early access winners, going over the gallery to try to find and remove any performance bottle-necks and tons of other stuff. Early indications from the press sounds very positive, but we placed an embargo on reviews until it’s available in the eShop, so I’m all nervous. But we want people to be able to buy it when they read about it!
We opened up the gallery to publicly show 3DS paintings the other day. Apart for the media there has also been a few artists (like the early access winners) trying out Colors! 3D for the last week. This is one of my favorites paintings posted, and it looks GREAT in 3D.
There were lots of things I had planned to talk about in this development diary, like how we’ve integrated the camera into Color! 3D and the Coloring Pages, which I’ve barely mentioned, but I think you will have to discover that stuff for yourself if you decide to pick Colors! 3D up. And I hope that you do!
Colors! 3D for Nintendo 3DS eShop is available April 5 in the Americas for $6.99. European/Australian release-date and price is “coming soon”.
