Hi!

Maybe I should start a dev log as well for my game "Blue Saga".
I usually use my twitter for small updates, but here I can post problems and solutions I encounter and post videos/screenshots of how the development is going.

About the game:
The game I'm making takes inspiration from the One Piece anime and the Pokémon-games.
The main concept is you will have boats that enables you to travel the seas and discover new islands. You will have different reputations with the different creature families, making your actions change your options in what quests are open to you. You will be able to create pirate crews with friends, having a pirate flag of your own. 

Creatures:
There will be plenty of creatures in this game, and like in pokémon they will have their unique set of abilities and stat modifiers. All creatures can wear their own equipment, both players and monsters. Monsters can go from being aggro to give you quests depending on your reputation.

Gameplay videos
Here are some videos I have recorded of older versions of the game, I will make a newer one soon.

Gameplay video v0.3

So if you have any questions or feedback just write it here.

For more frequent updates you can follow me on twitter.

Demo looks nice. Smiley Reminds me a little bit of FF but with a more cartoon look to it.

Any playable build yet?

Keep up the work!

Check out my DevLog? What if I told you there was cake? (Not yet, well, maybe never, but cake is always enticing.)

Thanks! My goal is to release a playable before 11/11/11. This is because of a certain game release that is going to interfere with my game development =)

Since I am working on the dungeon for the next version, it has gotten bothersome to walk all the way back to the shop all the time. So now I've made a working town portal! =D

I am working on the battle screen now, I am struggling with the ability system, creature and equipment stats. So when I am done with the basics for those I will release a build for both Mac and PC. Is there anyone here who knows the best way to export a java-project from Eclipse (Mac) to different platforms?

Thanks! I get the feeling that it is a bit inconsistent when there is so much pixelart in the game and the GUI is all smooth-looking. But I guess it works for the first version, I got more important stuff to fix first =)

Not sure aboyt Eclipse specifically, but if you build a jar of your java files and images created (if using through URLs) or add the image folder to the folder the jar will be in (if just pulling them from within a folder), as long as you're not using any platform-specfic code, it should run on any platform that has the JVM installed.

If you need help with getting a jar together (I wouldn't see why you would though, you're WAYYYY farther than I am xD) PM me. Smiley

Thanks! I will try and solve it myself, I just haven't put a lot of effort into it, just tried a couple of times.

Right now I am working with the ability system, and since there is a lot to think about I've decided to start small, meaning I will just implement 6-8 abilities to start with. But I will try to make them of different types so I broaden the possibilities of the system as much as possible.

Here is an image of a pirate-creature which uses the ability "flying".
All sky beasts have this ability to start with, but with a "flying"-orb equipped you can make any creature fly (well that's the idea anyway, still struggling with the implementation =D).

Here is a list of creatures that will be available in v0.5, If I get everything working right it will be easy for me to add more.

Got pathfinding working now and fixed an aggro-range for the monsters. Here is a screenshot of a blob with aggro chasing the player with pathfinding.

Working on the stats for all the creatures, I havn't fully decided on the system just yet, but I am starting out with this. A description of the system can be found here: http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=22891

I am using excel right now with some simple formulas to calculate the different stats given a level and starting stats for a creature. The "Total" column is the amount of points that I can distribute between the different stats. The colored columns is the stat-value for the desired level which is equal the original stat (column to the left of the colored) times the level of the creature.



I guess there will be mightier creatures later on that have a higher total of points which can be distributed.
