Well, has been a long month tbh, I will explain more stuff in the end but this month has been hard on me and I could not work that much on the game.
Still made some progress tbh, so lets start!
This month I started just right on where last update ended, because I'm doing some changes on the portraits after K'thani the only logical step was to redo Rynn!
I'm quite happy with the change on my style over the time.
Now, lets talk about the game. I will start with some nice stuff, I coded the behavior for the Archer enemy.
The arrows have a drop-off and hurt, they stick to surfaces a little bit then disappear.
Worked on new assets also.
This are some assets I'm working on, I'm changing the background tiles, making them more similar to the ground tiles but with a darker shade.
That's supposed to be a Storage tent for the imperial camp.
And this is a military tent for the imperial camp.
Also I'm working on some wooden platforms, still wip though I like the structure but might be too simple.
I coded a system to allow different keyboard layouts to be in the game.
This will make it very easy to put new layouts, right now only QWERTY and AZERTY are in the game, but with this system all i have to put is a new layout and the game will support it instantly.
Finally, remember that I made a discord server where I update new stuff and have neat emojis:
And also, if you want to try how is the game right now the early alpha for patrons is here too!
You only have to back for the Tier 1
PS: I didn't want to bring this bc its "drama" but recently some irl events happened and make life a little more sad and difficult. I will still be strong and try to keep working on stuff though.
My father just passed away unexpectedly on October 16, This year is a very hard one on all of us, but I already lost 4 relatives, my aunt first died of Alzheimer's on January, my grandmother also died in April (nothing to do with covid19) just of old age, then on June my mother also passed on bc of a very aggressive Alzheimer's too. All those were kind of of expected, just its always sad to lose someone, but the hardest one to endure was this...
My father was "healthy" he had bladder cancer, and bc of the covid19 crisis all his medical attentions got delayed, the diagnosis came late, then an early surgery couldn't be done, then the chemotherapy went badly and affected his kidneys, in the end doctors tried to do their bests and wasn't enough.
My father was maybe my most dear of all my relatives and he was always supportive of me and my projects, he wanted me to succeed and when first I got patrons he was very happy of me, and after all those years enduring my mother's illness, he had to go with her in the end when we were planning a lot of stuff together now free of the burden that my mother's Alzheimer's wasn't binding us to home. He wanted to visit Mexico again where he had close friends.
Sorry, this was a very long rambling about my family and feelings about all of it. It's just sad, and I'm still mourning, but life goes on and I have to make the best of what I got and get what I've always wanted, make games and tell stories so other people can enjoy and make a dent on the world.
See ya soon!
