Pixel Week 3

SOS-CC

Hey All, 

Sorry didn't realize yesterday was Tuesday and it was blog update day, so here is the update a day late.  

The past week we did a lot more work on the actual world layout.  I spent time on the actual viewport, camera, and resolution settings for the game.  This should now be all set so that when it's ported to IOS it will fit correctly on all screens.  I also scaled all the sprites in the world Parent Room so they look correct to the size of the sprites for the enemy's, props, and main character.  

One of the big changes that I made was making a parent room.  I have added all the objects, layers, assets, backgrounds, etc. to the parent room.  Now when adding additional rooms for the world I no longer have to recreate from scratch, I can inherit all the settings from the parent room and quickly configure and change the child room to our liking.  This will GREATLY lower the dev time of making new rooms which will increase the overall room amount per world.  

Also did a lot more work on artwork and sprites.  Added attack animations for Germ 2.  Coded all of the hurt boxes, hitboxes, destroy, draw, and variables set for a parent Enemy object.  Now when I create new enemy's I will make them child's of the parent enemy object so I don't have to re-write code. Also coded the same for the main playable character. 

The main playable character, who will now be called Sarah, has health and a hurt box and can take damage from parent Object Enemy.  Germ 2 can now take damage and be destroyed. 

For Germ 2 being destroyed I have scripts for effects.  Germ 2 has a full destroy effect animation as well now.  

I would like to show everyone the attack and destroy effects however the GIF program I am using on my MAC, GIPHY Capture, seems to lower the frame rate of gameplay when recording so I don't want to show you with those results.  Does anyone have a recommended program to record some gameplay that I can attach on this site?  I don't know exactly the size limit gamedev imposes on attachments in the blog.  

For now I will show some screenshots of the new layout of the test room.  You will see, if you compare to last screenshot, that it has been scaled and looks a lot better this way.  Also attached the coin currency that can be collected in game.  This currency will be used to "buy" permanent upgrades for playable character as well as new Rooms for arena mode.  They can only be collected by playing the game and NOT by IAP.  

Next will be working on UI artwork and coding.  Till next week, thank you.

      Dear community,
      I would like inform you that "War IOM" v2 have been re-work graphics and added more feature to serve user experience.

      You can access to the website and play it directly on your phone (Chrome mobile, Safari iPhone, iPad) or your Laptop
      Link to play: https://www.iomgame.com/wariom/
      ++++ Game description: 
      The rule to win the game is very simple: buy the soldiers, defeat the enemy army and then destroys the flag. Try to use fireball to wipe out the enemy. 
      The game had the shop to buy new soldier, upgrade soldier and choose the team out. 
      Game data be stored on both user's device and server so never lost data again.
       
      ++++ Here is the look and feel of War IOM icon on your Home-screen phone

       
      Rumor: You can get double gem receive if you beat the mini boss at level 3. Also win level 3 will give you a lot of Gem, use it to buy new solider and upgrade your army!

      Hey there!

      2 Play is a collection of 8 GAMES for 2 players in a local multiplayer on one device (split-screen)!

      They are all from different genres like racing, maze, arcade, reaction, mind games, ... so there is a game for everyone among them!



      Get it here for free: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Gamesbynama.ToPlay

      The games are all easy to understand but can really challenge the two players competing against each other. 

      The games are great to kill boredom (e.g. while waiting) or just to have fun together!

      HAVE FUN!

      Hello!
      I'm currently looking for a programmer for my hobby project, to be built in Unity and released on the PC.
      It's currently in the pre-alpha stages, as I am currently working out how all the systems should eventually work and quickly realized I didn't have the coding knowledge to achieve it. (I'm more of an artist than a coder.)
      This is where you can potentially come in!
      Should the game be released, all funds accrued will be split equally and credit will of course be given wherever applicable, I can't guarantee it will get released, however.
       
      The Premise
      A fantasy, pixel art game in which you build a city and look after its inhabitants by supplying them with the things they want. (Education, Politics, Entertainment, ect..)
      The people can be visually customized, gain skills & jobs, marry, have children, grow old and die, their lives are at your whim. 
      As you are building your city, you'll find that some citizens can go on quests for unique building materials, this turns the game into a X-Com style turn-based strategy, using the people that you send.
      Your city can be built however you want, with decorations and such, though your people may get upset if you don't give them what they need/want and abandon your city.
       
      The Programmer
      As the only coder in our project duo, I'd really need to insist that you know your way around a coding environment fairly well,
      as well as be able to utilize those scripts with Unity, the engine the game is being built in.
      The project will require:
      Pathfinding Coding UI Coding AI Coding Shader Coding (This may not be required if another method can be found)  
      Communication
      I've found using Google Drive for documents, Unity Collab for file-sharing and Discord for communication really helps keep everything tidy and easy to access.
      If you have any problems with these systems, please let me know.
       
      If you are interested, please contact me at nathan.jenkins1012@gmail.com 
      Whilst it is difficult to showcase coding, some examples of your work would be highly appreciated. 
       
      Thanks for reading!
