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!

      Hero Fantasy Pack Vol 2 is the sequel orchestral pack expanding on the dark fantasy musical themes. Prepare for even darker and more evil songs to add to your game! 

      As with Hero Fantasy Pack Vol 1 this pack has all its themes split into several parts for an adaptive music approach. By splitting up a theme in multiple parts you can adapt the music’s intensity and dynamics to a scenario where the player goes from a harmless situation and suddenly encounters great danger and music that enhances the intensity. 

      What’s included in the asset:
      - 4 different themes for easily adapting to the correct mood of the scene.
      - Each song consists of perfectly cut wav files to transition between the different section of the song with a nice reverb tail to make the transitions as smooth as possible. All songs come with a few stingers/hits if need to make an abrupt ending of the song or for a percussive transition between the different parts. 
      - All parts of each theme consists of seamless loops as well if you want to edit your own version in your audio editor (or just loop in Unity.) 
      - 324 MB in 93 HQ 16 Bit, 44kHz wav files.

      In my turn-based, RPG game, Forsaken Alchemy, I plan to have voiced character monologues and dialogues play along with some character animations after every battle, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on if wording is presented to be realistic in speech patterns, how all the characters sound in personality, if they sound similar in personality to each other, and any feedback on anything. There are in-battle criteria to trigger certain quotes more often than others, but I won't bore you with them. I just wanted to put that out in case you were curious how the below criteria matters in probability.
      Every quote in the solo quotes spoiler box is an instance of the character having a monologue. It's not him/her saying every single quote after one battle, so RNG will decide which of the listed solo quotes will play alone after a battle. For example,
      "Yes! I won!"
      and
      "That was easy!"
      are randomly picked per battle. The person is not saying, "Yes! I won! That was easy!"
      Solo quotes:
      When there's an empty line of space between dialogue, that means the next line is the start of a new dialogue. For the example below, after the second quote from Alvis is a different instance of dialogue that plays if RNG picks that to be played instead of the previous instance.
      Alvis: “I wish I knew even half as much knowledge that you know.”
      Victoria: “In time, you will.”
      Alvis: “That’s a pretty optimistic view.”
      Victoria: “For a scholar, you did well in that fight.”
      Alvis: “I’m just lucky I got out of it with everything intact.”
      Victoria: “You should be more confident about your keen strategies.”

      I am currently an indie game developer and I am looking to get a job with a game company as a game programmer. I worked for a game studio 9 years ago, but at the time I decided to get a day job as a software developer (non-game development), while focusing (as an indie developer), during my free time, on a vision for a game I've had for some time.
      This was then, but i've recently found myself unsatisfied with my day job and I am now thinking of going back to the game industry. The drive to make games is just too strong in me and I can no longer justify spending my days making software I am not excited about. Which leads me to my questions about a game programmer portfolio. Before i first got a job at a game studio i had built a couple of small games, this was way back though, around the year 2006. Would those be too old to showcase on a portfolio?
      Second question, i'd like to make the indie game i am working on available for potential recruiters to play, but I am not sure how to do that. I tried to put it up on Shimmer.io (kind like itch.io, but not as popular), but i ran into issues with that. It's a Unity game and the Web build i created for it was about 190 MB and it ran slowly and was very choppy on my machine, at which point i kind of gave up on the idea of putting it up online. The other option is to simply send (through email or Google drive) game companies a regular Unity build and let them play it that way. The question is, should i try to go the Web build route again and if so, any tips on making it work well this time? And also, if the Web build doesn't work again, would it be acceptable to send companies i apply for a regular build?
