been working on a tutorial level, today I made all the pop-up control hints.
It's the first proper tutorial I've made (I don't count the one from little dragon since it basically just gives the user a bunch of text to read)



PS: oops, i totally just noticed that I told people to press the right trigger and yet highlighted the left one :S

We recently got physics assets floating around the level to respond to being walked into or hit by swords, see

This looks really nice. The attack animations are a bit slow a wacky imho. When he holds up his sword to start then swing should be much faster. Or is this intended? (I kinda looked like the waggle sword from Skyward Sword)

The game has direction parries, so when starting an attack the animation needs to make the attack direction clear to anyone wishing to defend themselves and also needs to give enough time to react, it might look silly in isolation like this, but trust be, when you get into playing this against other people for the first time you'll think it's too dam fast!

FINALLY, submitted a build of KR to the PAX Australia Indie Showcase, hopefuly the guys who judge it will enjoy the game, I would really love to get to go to a tradeshow as an exhibitor!

It's been so intense rushing this build together, at least I can relax a bit this weekend now Smiley

Not the horns, please. That's a silly Hollywood invention.

(Unless they break off when you get hit in the game. Then it would actually be kinda neat.)

I'd like to seem them without the wireframes, but they all look cool.

Kinda hard to read what's going on in the face region of 2.

Paul coded in a rad sword trail effect yesterday, what do you think of it?

Looks nice in image form, except the start of the trail is contrasted too much. Hard to offer a proper opinion without seeing a longer movie of it though.

New map in progress,

Also, responding to some user feedback re "it's too hard to see which direction enemies are attacking from, thier sword blends in with the background", we have made the sword glow and 'power up' as you perform attacks

In addition we have done some work displaying player HP using a screen filter and 'edge blood'

Check out all of the above here;

That looks really nice, great environment too! Would it be less confusing if the sword wasn't always creating a trail but only when swung?

Sorry if this has been answered before, but is this game going to have inverse kinetics that enables dynamic motion like stopping incoming attack animations at precise angles of impact so that you won't find objects passing through each other in replays (apart from when metal goes through flesh)? Or even morphing into entirely new animations if you can deflect attacks in new directions to create dynamic openings for your next attacks?

Ever since I saw the first Hitman game, I've lamented the lack of inverse kinetics in games like Mount & Blade which feel so canned that combat really isn't interesting on the individual level. I guess Die By The Sword did this, but their implementation was quite clunky.

It doesn't yet have much IK controlling the blades hitting blades, instead the system uses and insane amount of animations all blending into one another dynamicaly to make the outcome look good and prevent object clipping.

It is still possible for swords to clip, but later down the track I hope to add more IK into the animation system, since I agree, the technology is there, it's existed for a very long time, but most game devs still hardly use it to enhance the look of their games (save for Wolfire, those guys are IK crazy)

On an unrelated note, here's a gif i made for fun;
