Unity Weekly Updates #55 - Let's play a game!



Welcome back! This is yet another new installment of your favourite Weekly Update blog! Last Saturday, I came back from my week of vacation and really got to recharge my batteries. However, I have a bit of difficulty gaining back my velocity, so this week was a bit light. Nevertheless, I was able to add two new items. Being on vacation helped me a lot to find inspiration, and in a way, these two items are the result... So without any further ado, here they are...

New Weapon

First, let's talk about weapons. During my vacations, I remembered the long summers of my childhood ... We played badminton on the gravel road in front of our RV... One of the main themes of Vaporwave being nostalgia, I always try to put a lot of it in most items. This way, I can evoke the main themes of Vaporwave: old technology, nostalgia and 80s-90s aesthetics. But anyway, this is the new weapon: the badminton racket.

Badminton Racket


Well, what do we have here? A badminton racket!

Everyone loves badminton, especially on hot summer days.


  • LCK+1;
  • ATK -2;
  • DEF -1;
  • AGL +2;


A small badminton racket. It's light but not very dangerous. It mainly acts as a defensive weapon. With it, players can reflect projectile by swinging the racket at them. It's also quieter and is overall quicker than conventional weapons.

New Relic

Second, I also added a new relic. We'll stay in the badminton theme as it's a classic shuttlecock.



This little guy is essential to play badminton.


  • ATK -25%
  • AGL +10%


It is a standard feathered shuttlecock. With it, players can fly through the air, become less noisy and gain the ability to do badminton services. To execute one, simply drop a defence while holding a melee shield taking care not to parry. When a successful service is performed, a shuttlecock is launched forward, hitting any enemies in its path.

Minor Updates

  • Fixed a bug where a player in defence mode could negate status damage

Next week

As for next week, I feel that it will be another rather light week. I'm still stuck in vacation mode and have yet to reach my usual velocity.

Otherwise, I'm gushing with energy! I think I can really start working on several big features in my backlog. A little brainstorming could be on the agenda too: I had a bunch of new ideas that came to me during my vacations.

And after all that, it's the usual suspects. And with most of the activatable items and equipment fully modelled, I think the time has come to go back a bit in the code.

In short, I'm slowly and surely rebooting the machine!

So that's about it!

      So about a year ago I started this project. Been working on it from time to time. I just wanted to know what you guys think about it.
      Still some things missing like proper audio and the fact the game has no real purpose, it's just a sandbox.

      Work's best on PC/chrome.  (does not work at all on mobile/touch devices)

      If you wan't to try it out:  THE GAME

      I'm fairly new to creating full 2d levels, so please feel free to correct me if I use incorrect terminology or if I'm doing something wrong here. Currently, I am using the Tile Palette with several sprites placed on it to create my levels. With that I can just run my mouse across the screen and quickly place tiles. Then on the TIlemap gameobject I place a Tilemap Collider and a Composite Collider. This works great, it's quick, simple, and efficient. However, for the next part of my character controller I'm looking at adding the ability to do a ledge grab. After doing some research, it seems like a common way to do that is to make the ledge he can grab "grabable" by putting a different collider on them. So my question is, is there an efficient way to where I can let the Tile Palette know if I use a specific corner sprite, place the ledge grab collider on it? Is there any way other than going through all the ledges in the game and manually placing them there? I'm also open to any tips on level building and using the Tilemap, etc that may help me out as, like I said, I'm pretty new to it all. Thanks!

      Hello guys I am a bit confused on rotation and position in unity. The thing is when I am at 0 rotation on X-Axis and I restricted my player to not let it go more than 10 on x-axis and less than -10 x-axis but when I rotated it to 90 degree It stated to move forward on left key press and backward to right key press. I just want to clamp position between 10 and -10 on every rotation It must not move differently when rotated... e.g for some understanding the scenario If a player is on a road and it is restricted to go on foot path then it should also be restricted when rotated to left or right... Please help me with this guys any help would be appreciated. 
      Thank You.

      Main designer here with a massive scale RTS/grand strategy/city builder/god game. If this sounds interesting and you're an artist or programmer with ideas then please contact me! We can make a bundle! I already have musicians with solid tracks. About three quarters of the way through total development, just need minor details filled out and a lot of art assets worked in.
