Hello Awesome People!
As usual, every two announcements we open by posting (for the new folks) a reminder about FaceRig being still in development. Before purchasing FaceRig, please read this announcement carefully.
It's recommended that you read the EULA (as you should do with any software you buy and/or use). Please make sure to also check the minimal requirements and remember that for now FaceRig is Windows-only, and that the mobile/low voltage versions of the listed CPU's and GPU's typically have less performance than their desktop counterparts.
And now, to the actual news :)
The results of the latest community poll are in. We'd like to thank our awesome community for constantly providing us with feedback and helping us improve FaceRig.
According to the poll, our community feels that FaceRig's biggest issues right now are the tracker quality/accuracy (48,6% of responders have chosen this option), followed by the user-made avatar creation/import process.
It seems that 56,1% of respondents feel FaceRig is not yet ready to exit the Early Access stage, with 26,2% saying it that makes no difference to them whether we call FaceRig 1.0 or Early Access. Only a small percentage have said that they consider the software ready to exit this development stage and is ready to be called 1.0.
As a direct result of your feedback, we're listening to your advice and we are keeping FaceRig in Early Access a little while longer. This will allow us to not only sort out the remaining bugs, but also to work on improving tracking quality before the official 1.0 since this is the community's biggest concern right now.
The new projected launch of FaceRig version 1.0 is May 2015 ( towards the beginning of May most likely), though we’ll continue polling you folks on the way, and if both our dev. team and you feel we’re ready to end Early Access sooner, we will do so. Until then, our primary focus will be fixing the existing bugs in order to improve your user experience and focus more on increasing tracking quality. Naturally FaceRig will continue having the Early Access discounted price.
FaceRig at Dreamhack Bucharest 2015
We are pleased to announce we're on our way to wrapping up the last details regarding our participation to the Dreamhack 2015 gaming and eSports event held in Bucharest, Romania.
If you are visiting Bucharest or live here, we'd love to have you drop by our booth. We'll have goodies, contests and you'll be able to play with FaceRig and bring your friends over and show off your knowledge about all the different avatars and features. Not only that, but you'll get to meet our artists, developers and all other members of our team, depending on what day you decide to visit us on!
Dreamhack Bucharest 2015 takes place at the Polivalent Hall between 24 and 26 April, so make sure you don't miss it if any of the above strikes your interest;)
We're also considering a participation at the East European Comic Con; tell us if you'd like that so we know to put a bit of extra effort in reserving a booth!
Let us know what you think by commenting below or joining the discussions on our Steam Community boards:)
We wish you an awesome week,
The FaceRig Team
