This month, I worked a lot on the graphic prototype. I worked on 3D models, researching their art style, colors and textures. I also worked on the dungeon architecture, walls, vaults and archs. I am late and did not finish yet the announce page of the game, but it should be done very soon.
New website style
If you go on the website, you will see that I did a totally new skin. Do not hesitate to let some comments, and please report any problems you may encounter.
This month a lot of prototyping gameplay and graphics. I worked especially on the physical traps, of which here is a video:
For the images of the graphic prototype it will be necessary to wait a little more.
Announce page incoming
I also started working on a game announcement webpage, to describe the concept and want to learn more. If you are interested in previewing it and giving advice for its improvement, do not hesitate to tell me.
My priority now is to finish this presentation page. For that I need to finish the graphic prototype to be able to take screenshots and make a teaser video that will be added to the page.
This month of May I made a lot of progress on the gameplay prototypes. I am working on interactions with 3D objects, and I focus on investigation and exploration. The idea is to use the physical engine to manipulate objects, move them, and so on. Some puzzles will focus on this kind of manipulation. I may soon create a little video to illustrate this a bit. I also started the prototype on the graphic style. It’s less obvious, but I’m progressing anyway.
Otherwise here are some images of the graphic prototype, which I use to calibrate the objects.
Hello everyone. Here is finally the first devlog. It was about time!
Already three months.
It’s been more than 3 months since I worked full-time on the company and the adventure game. Even if the task is rather arduous, I am now well launched and I have a very good time.
I have reviewed several times my development plans so that the game on which I work is both feasible and interesting. So I cut out a bit the concepts and places of the game that I had in mind. So I work on a series of games, which will unfold in the same universe. The first games will be fairly short (2 to 4 hours of play), to rip me, then I will gradually make it more and more complex.
The first game is still in the “prototyping” phase, because I work on the “core” of the concept and it is important to spend time there. In theory I should go into production within 1 or 2 months.
