This is the ninth entry of my development blog for my project 'Tracked Mind'.
Since last time I bumped into two huge bugs while implementing new things to do the game, and those bugs would have ruined a lot of progress, but luckily I backed up the game right in time so it was easy to roll back from a previous backup. At first I thought I had to roll back to an earlier version of the project due to confusion about when I backed up the project last. Thankfully I didn't have to do that. The lesson I learned and that I would like to share is: It's really important to back up your project and doing it at the same time each week or even day helps!
I lost some progress with the level design but I was able to recreate some other things that I was working on. So right now I'm working on making some new environments that I can use for recording a video to show what the game looks like now and how the mechanics in the game works. I'm uploading a few screenshots this time, one that shows a new part of the inventory that gives the Player some information about the selected item. A longer description about picked up items will appear as a Journal entry.
I've been trying to experiment with indoors lighting, with different results. Let me know what you think based on the screenshots that I've uploaded
- A new detail window for all the items in the inventory.
- A new footstep system that is more accurate and independent from animations.
- New post process effects, some for making the game look better and some made to be used when the stress meter is full.
- New Journal entries for enemies and items.
- Fixed a bug that prevented the Player to pick up items.
