Hi everyone! :)

 

I hope you’re all doing great!

 

Today, we’re going to talk to you about what we’ve been doing on “Project SpaceVille” in the last couple of weeks. This last one in particular, we focused on fixing the most critical bugs in the prototype. As you may already know, that was the last week before submitting the final demo for Lisboa Games Week. So, that was quite stressing! (laughs)

By the way, here’s a screenshot of that said demo. Enjoy!

Bugs. Bugs everywhere!

Something we didn’t tell you before (ups!) was that you were actually able to dig holes inside houses... But, we fixed that and you are no longer able to plant trees in your living room. There goes the environment, I guess. (laughs) Speaking of that, another bug that also occurred inside the house happened when you tried to place an item from the inventory in the room. Suddenly, it would start to be multiplied insanely (laughs), but that’s fixed as well.

 

While fixing these “small” issues, we were breaking other things related to the player's actions. For example, the player couldn’t catch butterflies anymore, trees wouldn’t fall no matter how hard you struck it with the axe! And after fixing these action related bugs, the achievements stopped working as well! What a mess, I know... (laughs)

 

Bugs aside, we’ve finally changed the player’s 3D model and animations to the “final” ones. But even there we found some issues. The new model’s rotation and player input sync was all wrong. So the player would be walking right with his body facing left (laughs).

 

We’ve also changed the NPC models to the cat models. But unfortunately, we haven’t had the time to implement their animations yet.

 

Art Styles

Finally, we’ve been testing a couple of different art styles in the game. We want “Project SpaceVille” to have its own look and feel. So, we’re giving a lot of time and thought into this. We haven’t set anything in stone yet, other that we want it to feel cartoonish, somewhat stylized and, above all, unique.

 

So, if you could help us, we’d love your opinion! Gil has been playing around with shaders and he has came up with these.

What do you think?

 

Cya next week, everyone!

      Hello fellow-developers,
      I released my first game on google play store for android and i'm just curious what more experienced developers/publishers think of the general user-experience.
      i.e. should i work on version 2.0. or move on ? 
      Thx in advance to you all!

      This is a picture of a regular room. 
      Each rooms has a chance to have props with a certain layout.
      If a rock is spawn the player can try to break it by exploding it. These can spawn common collectibles like money and such...
      There are many different type of layout possible, including a totally random one.
      The generator simply picks a shape, an anchor position and the type of prop to be generated.
      The process itself is simply a 2D boolean array. We simply draw on that array like we would in a bitmap using traditional image manipulation algorithms.
      Once the array is set, then we simply add a given prop for each true cell of the array 
      We then finally remove every props that are either outside its room or obstructing an entry/exit point.
      Right now, only two types of props can be generated, although the algorithm itself is kinda flexible.

      How could I animate a model that has been created from high-fidelity scans with blend shape-based facial rigs?
      Should I find a set of Unity|Unreal plug-ins and packages (middleware, libraries, tools, etc...) that separately do speech synthesis, lip sync, cheek movement, eye rolling, etc...?
      I know this is a broad question, but I would appreciate some pointers to help me understand how I can create verbal & non-verbal behaviors in such a model when I open it in Unity|Unreal in order to create a primitive virtual human.
