Weekly Update 2018-04-30
No doubt you want to hear about how this week we’ve completed Act one for Emily and Amanda. We now have four of seven characters that have the first third of their story written and coded. But what you really want to hear about, is how close are we to rendering images and pushing out our next distribution.
So here is the break down of parts acquired and parts still needed. We used all of the money accumulated via Patreon to purchase the processor and cooler. Thank you for that, it was a large part of the build total. The rest we’ve been slowly purchasing out of pocket week by week.
Parts in Hand:
- Intel Core i7 8700K – $328.28 (Paid for by Patrons)
- Vortex Plus CPU Cooler – $27.89 (Paid for by Patrons)
- Phanteks Full Tower Chassies – $99.99
- EVGA SuperNOVA 850 – $119.99
- 4 x Artic F14 Case Fans for a total of 6 case fans – $31.96
Parts to Purchase:
- Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370 – $180
- 16GB Ballistix RAM Module – $168.99 (Will eventually upgrade to 4 sticks, but only one is required to get us back online.)
- 2TB HDD – $59.89
- Windows 10 – $92..99
- GTX 1070 – $550.00
In the meantime, we will continue to redirect all patron support to system upgrades as well as the paycheck from my second job. And of course writing and coding will continue unabated. When this system comes online, we will start jamming out the visuals and kicking out the updates one full Act at a time. So there will be plenty of content coming your way to reward you for your patience.
Thanks for sticking with us! It’s been a helluva hiccup, but we’ll have this train rolling again very soon.
Salute my friends!
