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 😛 )
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 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂
Tastygraph signing off! See you soon, thanks for reading 🙂
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. 🙂
Feel free to share these, or let me know in the comments if you recognize the characters 😉
I took a trip to Germany , more precisely the city of Brühl to visit the Tim Burton Exhibition… and it was faaaaantastic! 🙂
It was really nice to see the artworks of Tim Burton up close and the various sculptures, his influences and his early years… And I also bought a book while I was there. The Art of Tim Buron, with over 1000 illustrations, many of them are foldout pages… Its friggin awesome! 😀
Here’s what I drew today. Heavily inspired by horror films like the Exorcist and vampire movies.. I call it “The Monster in the Doorway” … but after I drew it, I started to think about a phrase that I think is fitting for this image…
“Light reveals what lurks beneath the surface of the dark waters…”
So yeah, I didnt get as much practice done during those days, and the days following the trip… But I am back and I am practicing my Adobe Illustrator skills again! 🙂
Rise my minion! *Tastygraph casts a resurrection spell on this blog*
it has been ages…
years in fact…
and for that I apologize (Lets face it, its not like you were holding your breath, waiting for a new update… if so… then… yikes, I hope this resurrection spell affects you too then, my poor zombie friend 😉 )
So what does a Tastygraph do in about 4 years?
We’ll I’ve worked hard at becomming better at programming.
I’ve practiced my 2d drawing skills and managed to save up money for a Wacom Cintiq13HD drawing tablet, bought a spanking new supercomputer and a whole bunch of other things(tm)…
Been promoted at work to now be a part time school teacher as well, so I am in charge of planning and teaching the computer science classes for the 5th graders (the only grade that is taught computer science at this school)
I’ve managed to release a few games on my Kongregate Page and I have also started livestreaming my game development sessions which you’ll be able to watch on my Twitch Channel (its like a television program where you watch whats happening on my screen while im explaining what I am doing 🙂 )
oh… and as a little visual proof of concept, so you can see that I havent been completely slacking off! Here’s a video of what my super mario / meatboy and zelda2 inspired 2d platformer currently looks like 🙂 (This is after 2 months of work)
The media is constantly bombarding me with horrible images of a dead man…
all while they are complaining about how little girls shouldnt be playing with a tattooed barbiegirl…
and companies are selling wartoys for kids…
It’s sickening and somewhat confusing.
Charlie Chaplin spoke the truth 70 odd years ago… that much I know!
