So I made the mistake of upgrading from a (relatively) stable version of Unity (5.2.2) in an attempt to reduce some occasional editor crashes I was encountering. As a result, I ended up running into a fundamental 2D physics bug (in 5.2.3f1) that required yet another upgrade to get onto the latest patch (5.2.3p1):

Quote
(742572) - Physics: Ensure that OnCollisionEnter2D is always called if a contact starts and ends during a single physics update.

Facepalm

Also looks like some other 2D physics behaviour changed: previously a rigidbody collider would trigger a dynamic trigger collider without a rigidbody. Looks like this is no longer the case. Had to track down all occurrences of this and add a kinematic rigibody to the trigger colliders.

Lesson learned... sometimes you gotta deal with the odd editor crash in the interest of not breaking your game! No No NO

Hey TIGers!

I was out of commission due to a work accident... Deep cut in my left hand, being specific, I cut my thumb with a box cutter, and I almost cut like a third of the fingertip in a 45 degree angle No No NO. Fortunately the cut didn't mess with bone and it's healing well, but the whole finger got swollen and the pain was really heavy for the first few days, so work on my side pretty much stopped. Today I tested the gamepad again and while it hurts I can play now, and I'm a lot more comfortable so I should resume my duties too.

Here's a screenie I captured of the game, depicting our Road Rash badass fighting the alien critters inside the alien ship!



Expect more stuff from us as the release inches closer!

Peace.

More intro work. Still WIP but starting to look badass!



Very excited to be working on this! Ironic, that one of the last things we are going to make is the intro cinematic XD

Very cool - the SFX and music sounded good. If you end up needing any last minute supplemental sfx/bgm/etc, keep us in mind! This looks like a lot of fun.

So I'm off work (my day job, that is) for 2 full weeks for Christmas/New Year's/etc. and hoping to make a huge dent in the backlog and bug list. It may be a tad ambitious, but by the end of the year we plan to have:
  • new trailer video and new round of screen shots
  • new streamlined website live
  • Steam page live (albeit in "coming soon" state)

We can then focus on driving traffic to the Steam page (to follow/wishlist), while in parallel tying up loose ends in preparation for launch.

To get ready for the new trailer and screenshots I'm focused pretty much exclusively on "visual" bugs: weird enemy behaviour, sorting layer issues, camera issues, etc. I've got my work cut out for me: there's a good 40+ right now!

In other news, Ricardo and I met a couple days ago to nail down the initial launch feature set. We've agreed to cut back scope a bit to order release in a reasonable time-frame. Specifically, we're going to drop death-match, and one of the extra game modes we had planned to include ("1987", an ode to one of the greats).

Sucks to have to drop stuff, but we're already a bit behind (our self-imposed) schedule.

There's so, so much stuff we want to do, but we can't lose sight of the fact that it's just "v1", and we can always add more through free updates.

On that note, some possible future, post-launch enhancements:
  • "challenge" mode (shorter, harder levels, a la Super Meat Boy, VVVVVV, etc.)
  • boss rush mode
  • special character abilities/attributes (right now the only differences are cosmetic)
  • more weapons and weapon upgrades, unlocked by beating the game
  • more achievements

This is what my first 9 days of "vacation" looks like, heh...  Huh?

Solid progress though, almost ready to start capturing video for the trailer!

Been working on assets and props for the ending sequence. Feels weird to be actually working on the ending sequence of the game Shocked I'm so proud of what Adam and I have achieved after many hours of effort.

Here's a WIP showcasing part of the graphics I've been working on. The perspective of the beams is still heavy WIP but you get an idea of what we're aiming: Bright colors, rebuilding, blue skies and clouds!

Just ignore the sprite there heh, I placed it to have some scale reference.

Busy few weeks, mostly focused on bug fixing and testing, wrapping up the intro and ending cinematics (Ricardo, post some more shots Smiley...), and some nit-picky design stuff (i.e. moving some platforms to make for some smoother platforming segments, tweaking enemy patterns, etc.)

We're planning on releasing the OST at the same time as the game, so that means I need to consider how every track will be integrate in the game vs. how it will be used in the OST. So for example, some tracks will need to be cut into separate intro and looping segments for integration into the game, some tracks will need to be looped and faded in/out for the OST, etc.

The OST has somehow grown to 18 tracks, so it was a bit of work to keep track of all of this...



Releasing the OST also means we're going to need to send the music for mastering soon, so I'll be spending some time over the weekend rendering the current versions of the tracks for initial feedback from the mastering engineer, and then making any tweaks to the mixes next week.

Also gotta do the voice over for the ending cinematic this weekend (preferably at a time when my wife isn't home to hear me embarrass myself)... and then of course more bug fixing... No No NO

As release gets near and bugs get squashed, Adam and I are focusing on polish. I recently finished the 1st pass for the Achievement icons, mixing pure pixel art with some Photoshop tricks and digital illustration. I'm overall pretty pleased with them but Adam gave me some valuable feedback I'll use to try and improve them, a 2nd pass heh

Here are the icons side by side as of now (before further refining)



(the two star emblems are there just to fill the space heh, those were used as placeholders while I worked on the icons. I blame OCD Tongue)

-

With actual dev winding down Adam and I are switching to marketing and also planning ahead the stuff we'd like to include post-launch and also future content updates. There's still some graphic work for me to do, like the Game Over screen and some tweaks we wanted to include for character select screens and the level select menu.

All in all, very excited to have the release at sight!

Well, the soundtrack has been sent off for mastering... it's the final asset to be integrated before we start sending out review copies! And we're down to only a handful of bugs, none of which are game-breaking, so we're looking pretty good for an early March release date. Shocked Fingers crossed!

A shout out goes to Denis at Mastering.lt for doing the mastering job, he does great work! He's done the mastering for most of Snug's releases.

Here's a preview of what you can expect from the soundtrack. We'll post a few full tracks in the days to come, as we start getting the mastered versions back.

In other news, we've setup a Tumblr. I don't know that it's common to setup a Tumblr for a game (my wife says only kids use it...?), but it seems like the perfect platform for hosting lots of different media types in one place.

Testing out some "game feel" stuff (thanks,

!):



I previously wrote this kind of stuff off as polish/"I'll do it later", but I now realize that it can be just as important things like the fundamental gameplay mechanics. I mean, you're basically doing the same action over and over, it should probably "feel" good.

So to that end:
  • increased screen-shake
  • added knock-back for enemies
  • added recoil for player
  • added muzzle flash
  • increased player bullet speed

Plus a couple more drastic things:
  • doubled all enemy HP
  • doubled rate of fire for all weapons

Still some work to do--mostly fixing bugs/glitches that I introduced as a result of these changes--but overall I think it's a big improvement.



In other news, we've decided to release the game in Early Access, for a few reasons. [official announcements are here (website) and here (Steam)]

The main one being that we've come to realize there are some things we'll really only get one shot at; one of which is the level designs. As our self-imposed launch date drew near, there was still so much more tuning that we wanted to do to the levels. We felt that Early Access would give us an opportunity to try the current designs out on a larger audience, and iterate over them for a period of time before.

Secondarily, we had hoped to have a reasonably sized community by the time we launched, but unfortunately that's not the case. We hope that Early Access will start to generate some momentum and ultimately enable us to have a more impactful "full release".

If all goes to plan we'll be in live in Early Access this week! Crazy

Just uploaded a new trailer showing some of the """game feel""" stuff we've been working on lately (sorry for stealing all your trade secrets, Vlambeer), such as:

  • faster bullets
  • more bullets
  • more screen-shake
  • weapon recoil
  • muzzle flash
  • knock-back (or, in the words of one of my friends, "blow-back", hehe)
  • more enemies, and therefore more blood, and guts Evil





Everything you see in the video is live on Steam now.

This coincides with our first official Steam "update round", which will hopefully help to generate some more sales and wishlists. All in all, a very productive few weeks. We also have some pretty exciting stuff in the works, which I will share shortly!

Made the trek up to Ottawa, Ontario (14 hour drive) this past weekend for the OIGC's Game & Art Expo. Although the conference has been going for a few years now, this was their first time doing an expo like this. It was great to see so many other indie devs pursuing their dreams!

Here's a shot of our humble little setup:



Approximately 2600 people through the doors, and non-stop traffic at our booth. All in all, I would say it was a huge success and worth the 28 hours of driving Smiley
