Progress Update 31st August 2019

Sound Effects

I’ve been progressing with the re-writing of episodes, starting with the space probe that approaches your ship. This has led to a whole bunch of sound effects and soundscapes that I’ve had to put together.

Using Noise and Median-Cut to Create Pixel-Nebula

One of the things I wanted to have in The Last Boundary was nebula. They look awesome and space doesn’t look like space without them, instead it just looks like a few scattered white pixels. But because the game is supposed to be pixel-artish I had to find a way to make my noise library make pixelly images.

Here are some examples:

The single-colour examples above use 8 different colours, while the others are using 16 colours. In this article I’ll show you how I created pixelly looking nebula for The Last Boundary.

New Artwork

I’ve been hard at work learning how to do pixel-art. I present you with my new “ship crashing into a sun” artwork:

New Ship

This is replacing the old artwork here.

Old Ship

I think it’s a big difference. I know that the pixel-art probably isn’t very good, but I’m proud of it. I’m a little concerned about the amount of time it took, because that means it’s going to be a long time to get enough content together to actually release a game.

From now on, I don’t think I’ll share any new artwork, so as to leave some stuff as a surprise.

Progress Update 7th August 2019

I’ve now started work on some of the artwork. I’m not very good, and I imagine that this game will be a pretty big learning curve. Anyway, here it is, the second peice of art I’ve ever made:
