It took me a while but I finally made a Postmortem of the recent short project I took part in.
Go read it HERE
We’re approaching the inevitable deadline. Time is running out, TO-DO list is pretty long, so I don’t want to waste too much time.
Current stage of project is as follows:
I’m still adding core features and tweaking the ones that already exist. TLDR: I NEED MOAR JUICE!
Hopefully I’ll manage to achieve something of a better quality.
I haven’t posted that often with the progress as you must be aware that I am in the middle of changing jobs. Can’t say much as I still need to sort out some legal stuff with my previous employer. Things got pretty unpleasent, they still owe me some money. However, things are good already. I have found another GameDev Team and I am starting to work with them full time in August. Moreover I will no longer be bound with non compete agreement and I will be able to cooperate with other teams as a supporting C# developer.
So… yeah… that change has not been planned but it appears that it will be for the better.
I got some cool feedback and managed to implement some quick fixes today.
Here is the result:
I managed to implement cooperative feature known from SWIV: Player 2 can now join in the game anytime to control a Land Jeep. It will cost Player 1 a single life but it may be worth to ask your buddy to give you a helping friend… specially if you happen to fight a big bad boss monster (which is not implemented yet but expect it to happen soon)
Get prepared for regular updates. At least until the time my job situation becomes clear you may see the updates on daily basis.
I got some feedback from the first movie which I managed to implement. Here’s the list:
After the theme has been chosen (Destruction UP) I have started coding some basic foundation. Still a lot to do (especially with the optimization) but for now I have the core movement and shooting mechanics implemented. I’ll post next update probably on Sunday. Since I am between jobs at the moment I have a lot of spare time to code 🙂
Let me know what you think. I’ll try to implement as much as I can until 31st of July.
