Almost… ย ๐Ÿคฉย 

That is to say, you can try it now, if you have an Android Device and access to the Google Play Store.

Star Dasher is now in Open Beta, meaning you can join the beta test and play my new mobile game before it officially releases. ย ๐Ÿ˜Žย 

It is a 3d Endless Runner where you control a spaceship with your finger, moving it across the screen to avoid incoming obstacles while picking up coins. Spend your hard earned credits to unlock new spaceships that allow you score more points and get further into the game.

Star Dasher originally started as a learning experience for me, where I wanted to learn how to make an android mobile game and also learn how to publish an android game to the Google Play store.

I’ve spent roughly 2 months on it, and it is safe to say that the 90/10 rule was in full effect. I am not finished with the game, but it’s quite obvious at this point that the last 10% of the game, finishing it, polishing it, bug fixing it, is going to take up 90% of the game’s production time. ย ๐Ÿ˜ตย 

So if you’re an Android User and want to play an endless runner where actually get points for narrowly dodging things, give Star Dasher Open Beta a go and let me know what you think. Help me test it before It is released next month.

Thank you very much! โค๏ธย

How do you make a 2D Endless Runner Game in Unity?

I see this question every day.

Have a look at this search on youtube, that place is packed with a gazillion tutorials on every subject and more!


“How do I know if the tutorials are good?” you might ask?

Well, you cant really know for sure. After a while you’ll learn which Youtubers are great, like BlackThornProd, and which are AMAZING like Brackeys.

BUT… Sometimes you just want to have it all in one place, and that’s where SkillShare saves the day.

You can learn all kinds of things there, like Marketing, Programming, Drawing, Design, Game Development, even things like Instagram or getting into specifics on programs like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.

Why am I showing you this?

‘Cause my Free Spacerunner graphics pack was recently used in a SkillShare course by SandS Arts and I wanted to share it with you all ๐Ÿ˜€
So check out the course at SkillShare and get 2 free months of premium where you can learn anything you want!

Hi all, its that time of the decade! Tastygraph makes a post!

I released a totally FREE game art pack. You can use it for whatever you want, be it a free project, or a commercial project, anything! Its yours to use ๐Ÿ™‚

When you’re done using it, and your game is a massive hit (or not) then let me know! I would love to see what you come up with.

The pack contains 1 character, 2 power items, 3 obstacles to dodge and a background that tiles both vertically and horizontally.

So check it out, make a game, and let your friends and frienemies know all about it ๐Ÿ˜€

Programming a mobile rpg in unity3d (its actually just unity2d seeing as i am not using any 3d features… so lets just call it unity ๐Ÿ˜› )

I took out the pokemon sprites as i prefer to keep my projects 100% legal, even if its just a prototype or early alpha build… So the updated version contains new enemy sprites… more representative of the final product ๐Ÿ™‚

 

The plan is to make this game an android mobile game that you can play during a short break or whenever you feel like it. So it will not have Energy or other annoying timelimiting mechanics.

 

I do however plan on monetizing the game through voluntary ads where the player is rewarded for watching an ad and then in turn gains a buff or a bonus for X amount of rounds vs enemies , or just plain x amount of enemies fought ๐Ÿ™‚

 

More updates coming in the near future. I havent made a video of it yet, but the game currently has different zones to battle enemies in, and a village where you will be able to buy/sell items at the blacksmith, heal up at the temple and respec/retrain at the Trainer ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Tastygraph signing off! See you soon, thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

It is a well known fact that I am a huge geek! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I love everything related to super heroes and fantasy, and it is a major influence to me whenever I sit down and do creative work.

 

Lately I’ve been inspired by the concept of dual sided characters… Like the Man in the doorway who was really a demon… and I have continued along that path with my recent practice sessions in Adobe Illustrator.

 

The following works are born from my passion and joy of reading comic books and watching films… Marvel and Star Wars will always have a special place in my heart. ๐Ÿ™‚


 

Feel free to share these, or let me know in the comments if you recognize the characters ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fear is the path to the Dark Side.

Fear leads to Anger.

Anger leads to Hate.

Hate leads to Suffering.

A lot more focus on using the Pen Tool and making curvy lines (and a little bit of laziness when I copy/reflected the wing and reused it at the opposite side )

Took roughly 1ยฝ hour, looking at many different reference images and tattoos.
