2010.07.22 - Ridiculously Sparse Update For A Relatively-Unloved Blog

I’ll go into more detail later, but here’s a SUPER quick synopsis of the last (yikes!) six months:

  • Completed the demo build of Procyon
    • Level 3!
    • New title screen!
    • Finished game flow!
    • Working local multiplayer!
    • New control scheme!
    • New font rendering mechanism!
    • New tutorial!
    • Another bullet point with an accompanying exclamation point!
  • Sent it through several (sometimes-painful) rounds of playtest on the creator’s club forums, and got some great feedback (especially the feedback from one Jason Doucette of Xona Games, who gave some painful-to-hear but necessary criticism)
  • Submitted to the PAX 10 competition
  • Learned that I was not accepted into the PAX 10 competition :(
  • Started work fixing the networked multiplayer that I broke while working towards the demo (I’d disabled it for the demo so that I could keep my focus elsewhere!

Anyway, that’s my short update. ┬áBut fear not, for here, too, is a pair of videos!

    Woo-hoo! Update! :)

    By the way, I love the changes you’ve made. Eager to see what shape the game will take when it is “done”. Until then, keep up the good work. ;)

    I really like your work :)
    Just a little thing, the particle effect on level 3 Boss is working in a weird way(I think it’s been instantiated/created in a wrong start point).
    The level 3 boss does look a fun to play one (I like the advice-ray idea )

    Looks great Josh! Makes me miss working on my game. Can’t wait to give it a try.
