  1. [Dev Log] Esophagus Sarcophagus

    Eww, I like it. Gameplay looks
  2. Mailbag for a Tattered Nation

    Looking very good already and that concept is very intriguing.
  3. [Dev Log] In The Shade of the Puffin

    Oooooh, gorgeous gecko!
  4. [Dev Log] They Came Through the Floor

    Top notch mech designs. I dig the pixellated line aesthetic.
  5. [Dev Log] The Fresno Experiment - again

    Things are still going very slowly, lots of annoying and distracting stuff happening. Making cutscenes is completely new territory to me, so I'm not sure how to quite approach it. Currently all the timing is simply hard-coded in a script but it makes tweaking a bit cumbersome. But it mostly works, so I'll stick with it for the duration of this jam, i think. The car approaches: https://i.imgur.com/jglXaev.gifv This weekend I'll focus on making some plants, they will play a very important part in constructing the environment, and I'm still unsure how to best do it. I also need to cut the scope wayyy down. For now I'll focus on getting the intro sequence on the street done and maybe try to build the radio tower location.
  6. [Dev Log] The Fresno Experiment - again

    Thanks, everyone! I need these words of encouragement, things have not been going well in the last days. After work I'm often simply not in a state to really do any productive jamming, something I had not really expected. So thing have been going slow as is. But just now I also discovered that the camera control system I have built is actually broken. And then i fixed it. Complaining in Slack has once again worked wonders. Update: With that stuff seemingly working i was able to create the intro 'cutscene': http://i.imgur.com/a5WfzDX.gifv I want to use those 'cinematic' bars to show the player when they don't have control. Pretty happy that I made some progress today, despite that rocky start.
  7. The Power of 45 Brains

    I found this for the brains: https://github.com/45brains/45brains.data The actual website appears to be gone but the brains are listed in the .json files.

    So far I've done only programming, so there's nothing to show. Got the subtitle system to a state that only breaks sometimes in pretty specific circumstances, I'll leave it at that for now. Also had to make a character controller from scratch, the Unity one was too convoluted and I need to take control of the camera for the cutscenes. It's still very basic but now I can rotate the player's view without weirdly snapping to a position. With these things done, i can start working on the intro sequence. Not sure how to best coordinate it but Unity's timeline feature seems made for it. Time to learn how that works.
  9. [Dev Log] A Thousand Dormant Machines

    That physical prototyping is
  10. [Dev Log] The Convergence Compulsion

    Oh, this sounds neat! The idea description reminds me of that one music game where you have to redirect streams of music bits or whatever...can't remember the name.
  11. Rollin' With The Pope

    This already looks very, very good.
  12. [Dev Log] The Death of Nick Breckon

    I am very fond of "I'm ruined"
  13. [Dev Log] Alexa, Destroy Me

    This is very cool. I have zero experience with these voice assistants and no idea what an 'app' for one of those can even do but I'm excited to find out!
  14. I'll continue working on my previous entry. During the last jam I simply didn't have enough time and the result was pretty disappointing to me. I ended up just dropping the project and so I can just pick up where I left off. These are my current goals for this project: Basic, reusable systems for interaction with objects - basic framework still exists from last jam UI system for displaying subtitles, hover text etc with proper transitions - already made a bunch of progress(I sneakily did some pre-jamming) A simple starting cutscene/intro sequence - sequence of events is planned with some ideas on how to actually make them happen A somewhat cohesive narrative/quest - very basic structure is planned, might need to cut down the scope Learn how to make video game foliage - this is really difficult, actually...
  15. WIZARD JAM 8 // Welcome Thread

    I'm stoked!
