Project: Leaf

Daily Development Streams

Shinmera

727 views

Starting tomorrow I will be doing daily live game development streams for my current game project, Leaf. The streams will happen from 20:00 to 22:00 CEST, at https://stream.shinmera.com. There's also a short summary and countdown page here.

The streams will first primarily focus on rewriting some of the internals of the game and discussing viable designs for the level and tilemap representation. After that it'll probably fan out into some art design and rendering techniques. The streams won't be contiguous, so I'll be working on things off-stream as well, but I'll try to work in brief recaps at the beginning to ensure everyone is up to speed on the current progress.

If you would like to study the source code yourself, the two primary projects are Leaf itself, and the game engine Trial. Both are open source, and I push changes regularly. Feedback or discussion on the code and design is of course very much welcome.

I'm doing this regular stream mostly to force myself out of a terrible depressive episode I've been having, and this should provide enough external pressure to get me out of it and back into my regular, productive schedule. Of course, the more people are interested in this, the greater the pressure, so I hope I'll see at least some people in chat during the streams. I would really appreciate it tremendously, even if you don't have much gamedev or technical expertise, or are just there to shitpost. Really, I genuinely mean it!

That said, I hope to see you there!

      Greetings!

      Chaotic-neutral, rogue designer is looking for a merry companions to form a fellowship during game-development journey.
      He has a concept for a TCG and an urge to release it.
      Currently the project is in a paper-prototype-testing-tweaking stage.
      There is no concrete schedule since there are some opened questions regarding core mechanics...
      Game's IP is more-less-fantasy-with-mighty-dragons and OFC is totally a very-original-game-changing-idea... totally!
      ...with dwarfs!
      ...and dragons!
      So if you are keen to take this challenge and you have lvl 6+ skills in (and/or):
      Drawing (much much wanted)
      Coding (much wanted)
      Design (wanted)
      you may want to post some details about your interest in this project.
      This long-and-dangerous journey begins in Cambridge, UK.

      Best regards,
      V

      The Riverine design looking like a snake didn’t work very well with the animation so we re-designed this creature to look more like a colourful caterpillar type of animal.

      Your Alien always gets transported to the last teleporter that was used. If you find it hard to find the nearest one while exploring, consider buying the ”Teleporter scanner” upgrade from the customization screen.

      Hey! My name is Victor, I have been programming in Unity, with C# for about 6 months now. I have done a couple of games for my own, never released one, but I would like to start now, and I have been thinking about getting a small team together, or just another person that does the graphic part, to release a game every month or so. Obviously this is just a hobby or something that we would do on our free time but I would like to have serious people that wants to be involved in the project. If anyone is interested or wants to have more information just send me a private message or reply to this topic and I will contact you. Thanks for your time!

      I'm a designer newbie looking to team up with other fellow newbies to create an Elder Scrolls inspired RPG called Ogera: Land of Shadows. Someone who can work with either 2D or 3D graphics and knows a program called Stencyl or Godot is a plus.
