Isometric is cool too, particularly if you're wanted to go down the organic exploration kinda route

There are times that you may find yourself unarmed, but that doesn't mean you should give up...

So I'm over my Unity growing pains...



Most of my difficulty in unity has been with pixel perfection. Built-ins like colliders tend to prefer to be dragged precisely, which results in collision with objects at the sub-pixel level. I wrote some scripts that round off coordinates in the editor so dragging and resizing clicks in at an increment I set instead of by the .0345234 that it preferred before.

Then came the camera issues.

To get the camera to operate by the pixel, I pointed a second camera at a quad with a render texture limited by pixels and projected the main camera to it.

Trying to force a square peg in a cubed hole has been tedious, but I find Unity's debug and testing environment to be extremely helpful. I also prefer writing C# to GMS since I've been using C# for many years now.

Almost time to start over on content. SO EXCITE

This sounds very nice. I used a pixel to unity unit value of 10 and i'm setting all coordinates to .0, .1, ... , .9 manually, at the moment. Thanks for the input on this issue.

Same here.

If you knew C#, why did you start with GMS? Personally, i'm "starting" with Unity because i don't want to pay for all the GMS export modules...

Good to see new updates here. Smiley

I started with GMS because I had no intention of actually being a game dev, so I was going for prototyping speed over extensibility. I missed functions, and I had heard horror stories about 10 minute testing compile times, so I bailed out.

I love the aesthetic and I have an unhealthy affinity for chickens, so I'm super excited for this game =D

Hello! I remember seeing a gif of this game on Twitter, and got really excited when I saw this dev log. As a fan of chicken, swords, and pixel art, this is right up my alley. Looking forward to more!  Big Laff

Let's just call this particle physics... but what it really is is a y-offset parabola and some bouncing with velocity reduction.

I'm pretty sure there is no 'right way' to make a kill look fun and juicy. The important thing is that stuff happens, there is a delay, and then other stuff happens. Here is your standard pow, freeze, boom combo:



It just FEEEELLLLSSSS good

A chicken with a sword slashes at a man wearing a diving suit and holding a gun, killing him in one blow, and then the man explodes, leaving behind an oil stain and metal shrapnel. Briliant!

I feel like every enemy needs an animation of being cleaved in half at the ankles.

The short ones might get severed at the knee.

The really tall ones lose a toe? How tall are we talking?
