Nearly done with the Re Write

To begin with, I accidently erased the folder that had my project files, as well as the website, and from the server as well. But is ok now. So I have been re writing the re write. But anyway. The latest version is on newly worked website at http://bluestar03.com/Chronicle/Alpha . Two new features of the site is that previous builds are available, and als...

Update 005.2 Pause, Menu and Perspective.

The Alpha 005.1 update is up at http://bluestar03.com/Chronicle/Alpha as well on the Windows Phone Store . This release dealt with the Menu and Pause, as well as the Isometric Perspective. And I spent more time on this release than I should have. As I write this, there are only four days ‘till GDC Expo 15, and what I have is not impressive at all.


Update 005.1 - Controls ... Let the ReWrite Begin

As always, the Alpha 005.1 update is up at http://bluestar03.com/Chronicle/Alpha as well on the Windows Phone Store. The 005 Series will focus on the ReWrite I am doing since I stopped working on the game for some weeks, and when I got back, had no idea where I left. The very first thing to tackle is the controls.
The game is being targeted for Windo...

Update 004 - Animation ... and some News

The Alpha 004 update is up at http://bluestar03.com/Chronicle/Alpha as well on the Windows Phone Store. Unfortunately, it was taken down from the Windows 8 Store because it isn't feature complete. Bummer. Additionally, this update has been up for a while, but my day job got in the way of doing anything for a while. Sooo.... first the animation, then the...

Update 002 - Indoor and Outdoors

The next update is up on http://bluestar03.com/Chronicle/Alpha , Windows Phone, and now, Windows 8. This update deals with what I think is a crucial aspect in style for the game, going indoors and outdoors without control and/or visual interruption. In most games, let’s take Zelda as an example, when the Character goes Indoors or Outdoors, or basically ac...

Update 001 - Isometric Perspective

The Next Update is live at the Windows Phone App Store and http://www.bluestar03.com/Chronicle/Alpha . It simply draws everything in an Isometric Perspective. It additionally tweaks the directional input to offset the player direction by 45 degrees. Good news also arrived from Yoyo Games and M$ announcing a partnership which in addition to improving their...

Chronicle Destiny Live at the Windows Phone store

Kind of. Its basically a blue circle that is controllable by a virtual joystick, and some red block on a green gird background using a top view perspective. It basically is a base for a Zelda game. The same game can be viewed at http://bluestar03.com/Chronicle/Alpha , save for keyboard controls instead of touch controls. But why publish, and charge $0.99...

Website is Functionally finished

EDIT: By popular demand, I split it into paragraphs, and proofread it to. Will do the same for future posts.

GDC was an Awesome experience. It brought me hope that what I was doing was possible and worthwhile. Just seeing the one man show of "Papers, Please" take a lot of awards was motivational by itself, but also talking to the various booths at the ex...
