This weekend I showed the game at Pax Prime for the first time. It went great. Setting up the booth by myself was surprisingly laborious and took a good 6 hours or more to get every detail correct. The chosen layout was effective and there were no technical malfunctions aside of minor software glitches like the system cursor rarely appearing on top of the DOS-style cursor. Despite some help manning the booth on the final days, after 4 days of talking non-stop I feel like my voice has evolved into its next form.

I ordered what I thought was enough marketing materials to fill the tables. If someone had told me I needed 2,000 buttons I would have called bullshit. I only ordered 500 and they were gone on the first day! 750 business cards, 750 pamphlets.. all gone. The pamphlet quality was another minor problem. I trusted Vista Print to get the job done, and they did a shitty one. The black color was all over the place, from light gray to off-black and in some of them you could even see vestiges of a previous company's print job. Quite unprofessional.

The Convention Center in Seattle is huge and confusing, with the event split between 4th floor in one building and 6th floor in another. Otherwise, it was very well organized and there was a lot to see. It felt like the entire games industry was there, except for a notable lack of mobile games. I managed to play some games but only really had fun with Dunk Lords.

10/10 would go again.

Version 0.10.0

- Star Stone can now be equipped.

Improvements

The closed Beta has been a huge success and is coming to an end on October 28th. If anyone would like to play there are still a few Steam keys available. Send me a DM.



Meanwhile, work has started on the next location. The Copper Mine!

Edit: The project is now at 80%

Nintendo Switch

This is so weird to me, lol. I mean, grinding this game in the background while doing work is one thing, but if I imagine people just leaving their Switch on overnight/during the day for this it starts to feel a bit dubious

Not to be crude, but there's a few frames during this transition that look very phallic:



After the split, it looks completely non-sexual. Just there on the left for a second.

@JobLeonard I originally never intended this to be a console game, but Nintendo says most people are using the Switch as a mobile device, and it has touch input. Suddenly it makes a lot of sense.

@andyfromiowa I can see that. Mushrooms are phallic. I think this is fine, especially because it's a higher-difficulty encounter and only a split second. It was never intended to be phallic, it just is what it is.

@Devilkay I did not post it in indieExpo.

Some enemies in the Boiling Mine have a helmet mechanic which you have to break before dealing any damage to them.


Fun time making little UI animations.


The Cauldron can brew 10 different kinds of potions.


The Fissure Stone will be used to break apart items or turn them into Ki.


Was called Whip Beast, now calling this foe Dominotaur.


Boiling Mines Boss! It's great when the design goes all the way from concept to finish and it just works as imagined.

A lot has changed with the game in the last month. Development is going at full speed, with the Boiling Mines location now complete. I've started work on the Icy Ridge location, and after that, there will only be the Temple left to create. Getting real close.

In case anyone is wondering why I have not updated the devlog frequently, the answer is because the Discord server has taken over that role. I post day-to-day development there and I'm available to answer any questions about the project.

In the last few weeks I worked through and completed the Icy Ridge, a frigid location that follows the Boiling Mines. It's a savage region of the world, full of strange foes. Here's some of them:


Ki Gobbler




Ki Slerper


Ice Elemental


I also created an awesome laser area of effect attack that appears here in the Fissure Stone (but will probably move to another unique item).





Also had a lot of funcoffee working on the boss fight. His name is Hrímnir.


Hrímnir summons an ice wall as one of his abilities.


At the end of the Icy Ridge there is a Broken Bridge. Where does it lead?



I also received my copy of Canard PC's October issue, where Stone Story is featured in a 4 page article! Pretty cool

My next goal is to complete the Temple, which is the final location in the game's main arc. So far it's coming along great and has some ambitious designs.
