Hello everyone, I hope you’re having a great week so far. Great or not, I’ll try to make it a bit better with this post, ok?
Last week I left you empty handed because I was studying for the exam and there was not much progress done except the one for the trailer which is TOP SECRET for now. I’ve passed 1/2 of the exam (oral part left) so at least time wasn’t wasted.
To get your attention – have you seen latest screenshot? The one titled Disembark that I’ve posted this Saturday? Here, this is the one:
Courier meets the mummies with some “friendly” oil urns after his disembark.
Question that will be answered: Why is trailer taking so long?
Those who follow me for a long time already know that I have lots of things planned, drawn and designed but I don’t have everything implemented in the game. Far from it. Normally, I’m implementing stuff while I work on the maps. I do have prototypes for most of the stuff but prototypes aren’t enough. That means I’m implementing stuff and building parts of the maps just for the trailer right now. No harm is done though for everything will be used in the game as well later on. Except for the delay, that’s the minus here and I’m sorry for that.
Animating the big fire dude
Pixels here, pixels there, pixels everywhere
Courier will meet this fire dude at some point and you’ll be able to see it in the trailer as well so I had to take my time to make some animations for it. It takes some patience and lots of time to animate pixel art stuff, especially big stuff like this one. I’ll show you only idle animation for now ok?
Here are few more stuff that I was working on this week. Let me remind you that this is not the final quality of the game. I’m far from polishing phase so…yeah. You know ;)
Deadly-fiery-explosion spell that will be casted by some deadly crypt dweller
Opening chests was always fun right? I’ve done some slight improvements but I’m still not entirely satisfied with it. More shiny lights and treasure next time.
Opening the chest
Question that will be answered: Soo…when is the trailer release date again?
When it’s done! No, seriously, I’m doing my best – it’s over 50%, music is shaping pretty well, visuals are there and people say it’s not “THAT” boring so far. So, I guess that’s it for you. I would like to say next week but I won’t because I don’t know what problems may arise.
Windows Movie Maker now, I’ll need something else later
That’s it for the week. I hope you’re satisfied with the gif animations and that lots of text didn’t bring you down along the way. Have a great week on and enjoy the weekend ;)
