Progress Update – 2018-10-22

Lately I’ve been working on the events for the demo-build. Not much to say about it really. I’ve written I think maybe 2/3 of the events themselves, but will still need to create a bit of artwork to go with it. In addition there’s some additional audio to create, and I think I need to revisit some past audio as well.

Finally, I think there’s some new graphical effects that I can easily do for the demo-build that will go really well in one of the events.

I’m pretty proud of the story progress. There’s not really a lot in the demo-build, but what’s there I think shows off what the full game can do well. The events are interconnected to a degree and some can’t happen unless others happen first.

I’ve yet to come up with an event that can occur multiple times, but I think that’s where the eventual battle events will come in. I’m alluding to how this would work in the game world in one of the events for the demo-build.

Here’s a screenshot of all the story so far in the Space Adventure Writer app.

 

Progress Update

I’ve now implemented the sound a lot better, events can play sound effects. There’s also a couple of different background music tracks depending on the status of the ship.

I’ve added a main menu and title screen.

Here’s a gif of a problem I’ve come across. In between events, there’s no transition, it’s just “BAM” you’re in the next one. Without having a map or anything for you to decide where to go, there’s no natural break that I can put in. I’ll need to think about this some.

When the player clicked on “End” above, a new Event started immediately.

Meanwhile, here’s a video showing off sound and music and menus etc.

Sound + Progress

I’ve made a lot of progress these past few days. I’ve added sound effects and music. I’ve also created a more interesting event for testing purposes, with it’s own sound effects:

Next I need to:

  • Add a main menu
  • Add a menu to see the crew details
  • Add saving and loading of games
  • Create more events
  • Get some interesting graphics on the screen
