Hey everyone! Hectic month, but plenty of progress. Seeing how I have a 3 day weekend, I figured I’d get another post out of the way!
This month, we’ve been focusing on quite a few things.
In the last devlog, I included a mock-up of the sprites against a background. Well, I have a couple more backgrounds to demo from Cindy!(more…)
Ok…. so implementing irregularly shaped health/stat bars is…. something…
Basically, this required some shader and texture magic to properly pull off.
Hey everyone! It’s been a few (busy) weeks!
I’m finally getting settled in after a pretty sporadic period of moving and adjusting to the new place! A lot of unpacking, back and forth trips, tackling the backyard, non-working AC for a couple of weeks (Texas summer, ugh), and also work woes! Pretty tiring overall!
Not a ton of progress on Breeze the last couple weeks cause of it, but I’m eager to get back into the more groove! (Also, my birthday was a few days ago, level up!)
Anyway, Piti Yindee managed to get some run cycles animated for Drop and Temper:
Hey! Just a quick heads-up for those that didn’t already see on Discord:
I’m in the process of moving, and will start moving things into my new place starting Monday! If you’re lucky, I might be able to sneak in a little post at the end of next week. It’s basically in the same city, so nothing too crazy!
I did manage to sneak in a little dev this week. I fully integrated Kai’s Fleece Dialogue tool that I mentioned in the last dev post! I did some slight mods to it to update the UI, but other than that, I’m now getting rid of a lot of junk I was using before!(more…)
So… an eventful couple of weeks ~
Typically, I tend to write notes about development progress every few days (to make writing these updates a bit easier), but I was kind of slacking this time around. Gonna try my best to recall things…(more…)
Last week was a bit all over the place! (also, are these even “mini” anymore?)
Accomplishments this week:
We’ve finally picked a Vis Dev! There was a lot of talented applicants, and we took a great deal of time going through each portfolio (a few in which we might be interested in pulling in for some other positions in the future! ? )
Cindy Zhi will be joining us! Cindy, along with the rest of the background artists on board, will be developing the visual aspects of the world of Tropolis!
Here are some thumbnails and a concept piece that Cindy did as a test!
I actually spent most of this week sick unfortunately 😛
We did manage to get some things going this week, so it wasn’t a completely lost week.
Accomplishments this week:
This was a bit of an unplanned code clean-up week!
As I was setting up/connecting remaining gameplay features to buttons, I found that some related (and unrelated) code made things a little tricky, so I decided to refactor some systems.
I also managed to get some neat things implemented in the process.(more…)
It’s been a busy couple of weeks as I’ve been tackling several things in preparation for some upcoming goals and well, planning what’s to come for 2019!
I’m going to try to tackle these “mini-devlogs” in a more repeatable format and maybe concluding the month with a larger overview of progress, etc.(more…)
