Project: Frogger

Unity GameDev Challenge - Frogger - Part 3

Hello everyone! :) 

As always, I want to give a little update on my current progress. :D 

Sadly, progress has even been slower than last week. This happens to me with a lot of project. During the first weeks I always make a lot of progress. 
The more I get done in a project the slower my progress becomes and my motivation gets lower. 😢 

Music

I finally took some time to create little music theme for the game. Even though I am really bad at this kind of stuff I am somewhat happy with the results 😑:

Frogger Theme.wav

I have used Bosca Ceoil for this little music track. I really can recommend this little piece of software for people like me who have no idea how to create music on their own.

Even though the music is nothing special the effect of a little bit of music in a game is really awesome.

Menus

A lot of my time this week went into improving the menus and adding a small menu to the game scene. I still have not found a good way how to visualize the navigation of the options menu with only using the keyboard

Currently I am thinking about disabling currently not selected items. This would restrict the controls to only using the keyboard (which was actually one of my goals...). Another solution could be trying to highlight the currently selected item.
I will have to try a couple of things the next days.

Next Goals

I think I have implemented all needed things for the goals of this challenge. For the remaining weeks I want to focus on these things:

  • Try to improve the visuals of the game
  • Bug fixes (yes there are still some bugs left... :( )
  • Maybe add controller support (not sure if worth even though this is basically no work in Unity)
  • Any more ideas?

Also, still must figure out where I must add my submission and where I should upload the game files, etc. :D 

Thanks for reading and until next week! :)

If you are feeling bogged down by your project, it's probably time to refactor your code.

      Random Number God has been updated to v1.1.0.
      This is an incremental (although not idle) game about defeating randomized robots by rolling dice and playing cards that alter those dice and their effects.
      Other than performance fixes, the game has been rebalanced from the ground up. Now it should progress in a more fluid fashion. An option to reset the game with a significant boost to your power has been added, allowing you to advance further than you could before.
      There is also now an option to significantly speed up battle animations. Once you learn the rules of the game, a battle can easily take <2 min.

      Hello Community,
      I'm passionated game developer and doing some hobby board game authoring in my spare time. I'm now at a point that there is need for some artworks for a new game I'm currently prototyping that need to match a certain art style, so I'm looking for a reliable Artist/ Illustrator to help getting the artwork done for a few cards.
      The card game is a collectible strategy card game where each player has a preconstructed deck of cards with the goal to decrease every other opponent's life points to zero. So far so convinient the game comes with a clue; in order to skip any randomness caused by throwing a dice or flipping a coin, players do some kind of Tarot Fortune telling to determine the result of certain situations. Away from classic taro cards, there are some other game related constelations like The Omen, The Herald or The Horseman which each has certain meaning based on current situation.
      The cards have a minimalistic but also detailed art style and this is my current problem. While my knowledge using Photoshop is at a level I could design my cards very well, I'm not talented enougth to do the art except the example picture I already did.

       
      So anybody who likes card games/ board games like I do and would be able to draw/sketch or however reach the art style of my current sample image and willing to help for 10 to 15 different images would be welcome.
      The game will, once be completed in design and balancing, presented to an agency to be or be not approved for further potential customers in order to get produced or otherwise put to Kickstarter. However, as always I do this for joy not profit so don't expect any financial outome.
      Please contact me via Discord or PM for interest or further questions. I expect a minimal netiqeutte for example to be honest, reliable and all but foremost tell me if and when I could expect first results so I wouldn't be waiting all day for a never comming reply
      Thanks in advance

      Hey my dudes,
      Me and 4 friends are third year compsci students. Three of us are pretty good at drawing. We are hoping to make a 2d roguelite game with unity during the next few months. We are still brainstorming. At the moment, my idea is to create a card roguelite game:
      First, you would need to choose 2 heroes to enter the dungeon with the goal of finding a treasure. The treasure found gives you extra bonus in later runs. You can choose between mage, gunner, rogue, paladin, warrior and fighter. Each hero has their own unique cards. And there are common cards that every heroes can get(like hearthstone).
      The progression system would be like slay the spire’s. You can choose your own path, but every paths leads to the boss. It would use procedural generation. After defeating an enemy, you get to choose a new card out of the three options. There would be shops, random events, elite enemies, etc
      The combat system is where i need some suggestions on. There would be two piles of deck. One for each hero. I can think of two good combat systems:
      1. Before every enemy encounters, you can choose what cards to use from your deck. Cards not used would not get discarded. Cards are drawn from the deck only if they break or due to special card’s effect. Every card have a durability number. Ones the durability reach zero, the card would break and can no longer be used. Events/enemies can modify the durability of the cards.
      2. Card not used this turn would get discarded. Once the deck is empty, the discard pile gets shuffled and copied to the deck. Card/item effects can increase the number of cards you draw.
      How can I make the game more interesting? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hi everyone. For the last few months I’ve been working on a simple HTML5 2D side scrolling action game called Theraxius. It's nothing new and revolutionary, it's more like an evolution of different technology (combination of HTML5, PHP, MySQL). The game also includes a level editor so you can create your own levels. The game and the level editor is written almost completely in JavaScript, no download is required. Just load and play. Here are a few screenshots and the link to the page.
      In the next weeks I’ll try to post some videos, try to add registration (for newsletter and later for public test).
      Release date: when it's done
