Figured it was time to show a little somewhat buggy sneak peek of an arena shooter set in space that I am currently working. (read: Currently pulling my hair out because SOMETHING just wont do what I want it to 😛
This test is NOT a proper indication of how the game will play when its finished. All the graphics will be replaced, and Joshua from http://www.openheartsound.com is working on the Music and Sound Effects for the game (I’ve added a few of his sounds to the game already (the laser shot, the upgrade sound and the pick up Ore sound… and damn, is he good!! )
also, in the final version of the game, you wont be fighting all enemy types from the get go… it will slowly ramp up the difficulty as you upgrade your ship and kill more enemies.
as always, the game requires the Unity3d Plugin to play in your browser, luckily its a super fast download and no hassle install 🙂
Just wanted to share a little something, to show that I’m not completely inactive 😉
Hi All… or.. hello whoever is left checking this blog :p
Sorry for my absense… Things havent quite gone the way I intended them to go lately, but It will get sorted soon enough.
I’ve been working through the chapters of Will Goldstone’s book: Unity Game Development Essentials (I am currently at Chapter 3) , meaning… I havent gotten very far… But in dark and gloomy winter times… Progress is Progress.
Here’s a little screenshot of what my progress looks like currently.. its not much, but at least it shows that I am doing something, and getting somewhere. The aim of the exercises in the book is to reach a point where I’ve created a playable little outdoor area with a few puzzles, and the game is controlled with a first person shooter perspective, like quake/counterstrike.
In other news… I’ve also drawn some pictures while i was absent from my blog… Mostly inspired by fantasy games like World of Warcraft and EverQuest… As you can see by the image of the Tauren and the other picture showing the magic using woman with extremely skinny legs (Yes, my apologies to http://www.idrawgirls.com … I didnt quite take all of your teachings to heart… yet heheh )
And… I have also been trying my hand at music making… I’m still quite a novice at that, but I am enjoying it very much, and I find that the process of hearing your results instantly, and adding sounds as you go along… very rewarding 🙂
If you like any of these, please dont hesitate to rate or comment on them, I would very much appreciate a bit of feedback as I am still very much a beginner. The music was made with various soundpools that i recorded/purchased and then put together in Magix Music Maker. Still have a long way to go in terms of recording my own sound samples, but I’ll get there eventually 🙂
Oh, and I ordered a converter/cable thingy so that I can finally get my old hard-drive content transfered to my new pc… Yes, I am a bit slack.
TastyGraph, over and out… until next time, and surely there wont be another month until next update… I promise 🙂
