It's a bit worrying that the devs haven't replied since early October. A little update on how development is going would be great, whether it's been progressing or not. This is the official dev journal after all!

Loving the game Smiley

on a related note, the last update of the (still advertised!) DRM free version on humble has been a year ago now. Will there ever be another update of the DRM free version or is it officially dead?

I've seen some cool recent updates on Delver development on Cuddigan's twitter, any reason why none of that is being posted here?

Got stuck in what seems like a square that should not be accessible and now I cannot get out! That's frustrating considering I'm near the end Sad

Hi, first post here!



A little work in progress preview of the updated map. What sort of things do you want from a game map?
An item hidden early in the dungeons at random that shows the location of all items and enemies currently known about. But it can be rare enough. And randomly choose what floor to put it on at game start. Also an item also randomly hidden that shows the entire map, but on a floor by floor basis and not always available on every floor. If not an item then a spell or something. Maybe one of the books you find so many of.

Do books have a real purpose right now? I think making them have special properties would be neat. Like in Dead Rising where keeping certain books in your inventory would give your weapons or abilities special buffs.

I just recently as of yesterday decided to delve (lol) back into this game to see if anything new happened. I'm really having so much fun with it. I hope it keeps being developed for a while. It just might become my new Spelunky.

Update!

Chad and I have been working on fleshing out the final area of Delver. Previously it was a single static level with no procedural generation at all. We are expanding it to two properly generated levels and a handcrafted arena at the end. I've been working on arting up the new area.

Since the Cold and Sewer areas I've been more carefully structuring how the assets are laid out. Previously we had one large image for all level geometry textures, and a handful of textures for all of the sprites and meshes. Now the directory structure (mostly) looks like:

Delver
├───meshes
│   ├───Area_0
│   │   ├───door_0.obj
│   │   ├───pillar_0.obj
│   │   ├───chain_0.obj
│   │   ├───whatever_0.obj
│   │   └───...
│   └───Area_1
│       └───...
└───textures
    ├───Area_0
    │   ├───meshes.obj
    │   ├───sprites.obj
    │   └───textures.obj
    └───Area_1
        └───...


When starting the art for the temple area I duplicated the assets from the Cold area, hooked it up in the data files, and began tweaking the palette to find a good fit. Currently I have a WIP texture sheet for the level and I've been working on meshes to dress up the level. This tends to be an iterative process as the textures inspire props, which inspire new textures.

The temple theme is inspired by Mesoamerican and Balinese designs. I'm still working on adding additional props and textures.

Suggestions and feedback are definitely welcome!

Looking great! It's good to hear Delver is still going strong. Of course it was said on Twitter a while ago that is was being worked on, but a post in this forum is very reassuring  Smiley

The new art looks great and I'm happy to hear the final level is going to be procedurally generated now. Since you've invited suggestions, there are just a few small things that would be great in the next update:

1. It would be great if the game didn't force a pause when you leveled up, but rather waited for you to choose a moment to spend a level point.
2. A few arrow bugs. Arrows that are found don't stack with arrows that are bought. Also, the arrow hitbox is a bit wonky, making the bow hard to use in narrow hallways.

Anyway, those are just some tiny nitpicks that hinder the experience (only slightly) for me, so them being addressed in some way would be a bonus. I'm just excited to see what happens next!

I also saw on your Twitter that you became a dad recently, so congrats on that, and I hope it's going well.  Beer!

I love the tileable spritework you did. Since you posted it on twitter I've really been inspired to work on my own stuff in that style. Combining tileable textures with Probuilder in Unity makes for very easy level building. 
 
Especially the rock wall with gold ore in it is very very nice.
Have you thought about making transitions tiles between 90 degree angles?
It feels a little off that the stone wall above the lava is grey while the floor tiles are rust coloured and the stonework isn't aligned. It may be overkill but I made tiles that transition between those things in my own attempts which you can see here.

The game seems awesome, I got it during the Steam Sale...
But I can't even play it!  Sad I  get "OpenJDK Platform Binary stopped working" just a few seconds after I open the game. Did try opening it as Administrator but didn't work either. Is there anything I can do or I'll just have to wait for development to proceed?

still super curious, from one really old fan to another, is the door in the cold thats locked ACTUALLY ACCESSIBLE? ive always wondered.

EDIT: the big, gilded one, if that helps at all to differentiate them lol

EDIT EDIT: the final level design looks great, :L its definitely a step up from what was previously there, as awesome as that stuff might be.

EDIT EDIT EDIT TO ADD ONTO THE TOPIC PRESENTED IN THE PREVIOUS EDIT: also, will there ever be any natural areas in the dungeon? i know of a mod that adds forests and stuff underground, i believe. (dunno, that might actually be canon stuff and im just being dumb, aha)

@ProgramGamer
Thank you for the kind words! We are available on early access, if you'd like to support us. We have been long between updates lately, but I will have a some interesting news on that next week.

@Connor
I'm glad you like the look of the final level. It is not finished yet, but I am slowly getting there. I think natural areas would be cool to add, but no plans right now for that.

Regarding the large door in the ice level, well it's a bit spoilery so stop reading now if you are opposed to that.

Still here? Cool.

Right now there is nothing behind it but a small Easter egg. I want to use it as a potential point of extending Delver, but I am not committing to anything right now that will increase the project's scope. My priority it so finish the content we've committed to, and polish it up as much as I can.
