Weekly Updates Week 2:Concepts of Creatures within Kinfallen Forest

Here is a showcase of two enemies you will encounter in the Kinfallen Forest, including a brief description and concept art created by our talented artists: 



This small creature resembles the plant-life of Kinfallen Forest, and scurries along the forest floor, attacking any nearby threat by shooting seedpods or attempting a pitiful attack. When cornered, it will usually either burrow itself underground or flee.


Tresswing: (Before and after)



This aerial creature only has two wings and a beaked face, and flies amongst the canopy of the forest. When spotting an unsuspecting wanderer, it will swoop down to peck at any unlucky traveler’s head. 

Weekly Member Spotlight:

Beginning every week, there will be a small Q&A segment, wherein we ask a member of Tumultuous Productions some questions to learn more about our talented team! 

For this week, we asked our Lead Composer for all Yami sounds and music, Sassykeys, a few questions to provide an insight into his creative process.

Q: What originally inspired/brought you into pursuing and learning music?

A: “As early as I can remember there was a piano in my  house. I used to enjoy sitting down and smashing some keys - even if the notes didn't make sense I still enjoyed it. So I think a natural interest at an early age really helped.

Q: What led you to want to create music for a video game?

A: “I had been doing session jobs for a while, but felt something was missing. My main time spent on piano has always been composition. I don't actually know that many songs on piano, but I've always enjoyed coming up with original material. This stems from discovering new chords and combinations on the piano since an early age and developing that theoretical knowledge through trial and error. Anyway, it's helped me as a session musician, but with so much material I've recorded and haven't released, I figured doing some music for video games would be a really nice outlet. I also really like video games.

Q: What is your creative process? How do you get the ‘musical juices’ flowing?

A: “Play piano. I've found this to be incredibly important in helping me come up with ideas, especially since I'm spending a lot more hours sitting at a computer than I'm used to. Whenever I have “writers block” it's normally because I haven't jammed for a few hours on the keys like I normally do.

Q:What is a random fact about you?

A: Yumface is my favourite emoji and it's more or less the only one I use.

Q: How does making music for a game differ from making it for a general audience?

A: It doesn't differ all too much asides from maybe you prioritise the music fitting in with the game over how somebody might perceive it if they were listening just for leisure. In saying that the video game is hopefully being made for a general audience too, so their enjoyment of the music is still very important to me.


~Look for our post Next week where we provide more information on the Scavenger and Uprooter enemies and the release of our new website~

      Each upgrade shows the amount of items and energy needed to build that component. This number of items will count down as you find more resources while mining. A green tick means you have enough items of a specific kind required for that upgrade. When you have all resources needed to build a specific upgrade a yellow dot in the top right corner of the icon will appear.

      Hi there, 
      I am new to this forum and wanted to say hi first of all. 
      Secondly, I am in the process of creating a vertical 2d shooter using the assets I am creating on photoshop and illustrator. I want to put a scrolling parallax in the background to give the illusion that the player is moving forward (similar to Skyforce Anniversary) but I am not sure how best to create the graphics in terms of the document size etc. I have used a scrolling parallax before using a 3D game object in unity and wrapping a background to it. This works fine for a repeating background but I would like mine to change throughout the level. 
      Has anyone got any experience with doing something like this?
      Thanks in advance

      Hi there,
      I need help! Based on my own experiences, I have a theory that if we (game designers/builders/creators of awesomeness) were to have a simple method for collecting and analyzing feedback about our games we could:
      significantly improve the early game-play and feel of the game,
      reduce the time it takes to keep or kill our ideas,
      improve the time it takes to go from thinking to world building (idea to production),
      stay engaged whilst on the journey to full production.
      So before I go any further with my theory, I’d love to get your thoughts and opinions. Are the problems I face just mine or are you experiencing them too?
      Please help me by completing this quick questionnaire:
      https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9SFXKHD (it should only take 2-3 mins) 
      or providing any comments you feel might help (please be constructive ;)).
      Thanks in advance!

      I'm wanting to create a hybrid game between turn based and action.  I'm looking to create a system where the player has a list of attack or move options on their turn, but I want to add a skill minigame in order to make the game more engaging for non-strategists.  I figured some sort of minigame or something.  Any ideas are welcome.  Thanks in advance!
