And before you know it, father time has turned you into a very bad blogger. Have some clouds instead:
The deadline has closed and Racist, MAGS Edition, is being harshly judged as we speak. I did manage to add the new ship(s), animation, boost function and combat to the game, but had no time to balance it or add any music or sound effects. I’ve also found two bugs.
I want to make this game complete at some point, but I have too many other things to do first. It would be great to have the time to add dune buggies to the full version, as an alternate game mode.
I managed to release Racist, having cut a bunch of stuff I wanted to do. The game is playable enough, and it gets the idea across, but this was not the intended game. As it turns out though, we got a 4 day extension, so I will be adding as much as I can, including hopefully, the combat this game is supposed to have. For day one I took the time to model a ship, as the one in the released game was a placeholder. I spent more time on this than I planned, but this will totally work for the game.
Okay, this is only about 13 days late, but I had to take a break after the release of Hidden Plains. By taking a break of course I mean starting work on a new game pretty much immediately and getting all wrapped up in the fun of a new project. This one is for the Monthly AGS game jam (MAGS), which means it has to be done by the end of the month. I will post some images before it’s done. For now, enjoy this trailer.
And yes, I totally still love Blender.
I’m so tired right now it feels like I’m high, but I got this bastard released in 2017!
Yessir, Hidden Plains is live on windows, and the linux version is uploading. I kind of hit the jackpot with that name, because it’s not very popular on search engines at all. There’s a street in the US named that, and that’s it.
I will make a point to be a better blogger in the new year. I have some chronicles I can share with ye of my travels in a few modern AAA games. I probably still won’t want to share too much about projects in progress, but we’ll see. Maybe I’ll start blogging about politics and give everyone what they want.
For now, enjoy this game. (ENJOY IT!!!)
I’ve been stuck on character art for my new game for months, and after finally just doing it myself, I now have some really good game dev momentum going. I really hate to talk about stuff I’m still working on, but since I’ve been so lazy, both in the dev and blogging departments, I’ll post a screenshot from the unfinished game:
It’s an adventure game hybrid, set in the same universe as my previous game. Now that I’ve cleared a major hurdle in development, I’ve been making the few remaining game assets in blender. The shot above is one of a few scenes of debris that will be encountered in the game. You basically collect spare parts from these. (more…)
