It seems like an eternity since the last news regarding The Tower was dropped, back in August I believe, and yes...without any updates, that was WAY too long.
To start with, here are four brand new images, all rendered in game at 4K resolution. Stunning, no?
Over the last six months, The Tower has been going through some crazy Unity 5 redesigning, as well as some thorough Oculus Rift implementation.
This is all for us to worry about though, but apart from the huge developmental issues, I personaly would like to bring to light some Community awareness matters and feedback, that have given us (but mostly me) some sleepless nights. This is going to be supremely honest...
I understand the Community frustration and anger over the lack of updates to The Tower (and some of our other titles as well) and the feeling that seven months without an update, can lead to allegations of 'scamming' or some other description of development neglect, but I want/need to inform you, our players, that this simply isn't the case.
We don't always inform the Community as much as I would like to be able to, and as I can see, this can have a devastating effect on future trust and positivity within our Community. I would like to know how we can build this trust back up to you all, starting with more frequent updates and transparency on the process of development with our game/s.
We want to build bridges and repair the damage that may have been done, through either helping those affected and no longer willing to support The Tower with getting a refund, or in some other fashion.
We dropped the ball. Several times. And I applogise for all of us and to you all, for whatever upset or anger it may have caused you.
This is us wanting to wipe the slate clean...to establish a better foundation than we had mid-2014.
Thank you for reading.

“I have only played the beginning so far but the moment I passed through the darkness I really felt that this was genius... I have surround sound headphones and it took a while to adjust but then I heard the water and decided to head towards the noise. I could sense the distancing and the placing of the water through my headphones and I walked towards it and splashed the water... I was amazed when I heard a faint sound of air and follwed that toi the next area. I havew never played a game that requires senses and I instantly want more. I congratulate you. However are you going to put a price on it? And I have a good computer but it stills lags? However amazing game and so far have been fascinated. I don't give 10s ever but after seeing well hearing this and that it actually worked and I had to rely on senses I was astounded. I was tempted to give 9 since I donnt know what is up ahead but I thought the genius behind it all was magnificient?!”

“Brilliant game and an absolutely genius game concept! I was sceptic at first, a total darkness sound guided game, but they made it work perfectly =3”

“A refreshingly novel approach to interactive sensory entertainment with well-done storytelling to keep it enthralling. Lots of potential.”
