Archer Alec - IndieGame Devlog 11: Tutorials!


Archer Alec Indie Game Design Tutorials
4: Adsense

So this weekend I worked on the tutorials in Archer Alec.
I didnt want to go with text, and I really didnt want to have a voice talk to you. So I went with this method instead.
I will be adding on to the tutorial later do explain other aspects of the game. Upgrades, proceeding to the next level etc.
Thanks for reading Posted Image
Feedback is appreciated!

That's pretty good. I think you made the right decision not having them text based. Maybe you should verify that the player has understood the tutorial too... lets say by having to shoot a target to be able to progress, or jumping over a hole in the ground. The music is nice too :) Keep it up!

Heya.

Have you thought of moving the "camera" up a little?
Maybe so the character is 3/4th ways down, so that you see a bit more of the sky and less of the ground?

Just a thought, like the progress so far though :)

Looks nice. I might recommend the first sign showing all the movement keys instead of doing them one by one. And from the video it looks like you got attacked before you were able to read the sign about how to defend yourself.

Thats a good idea, Yeah I will see how that looks and I might end up leaving it that way

Definitively going to put in a target, I might just remove monsters from the tutorial and Have targets instead, and common to popular belief in this world that Archer Alec is in there are other humans! So I might add in a guide of some sort during the tutorial
