Hello everyone and welcome to the Zazmo Development Update!


We have something pretty special this time around. As you might already know we have a twice weekly game development stream on Twitch. Well, this week we started a new segment for the Zazmo Arcade called “The Clueless Programmer”. In this series our lead programmer Joshua will teach ME how to program a game (well, how to program parts of a game)!

We have two episodes to share with you. In the first one Joshua walks me thourgh some special effects and tuning work. In episode two we go a little bigger and I get to make a new object in GameMaker and add in my own code!

The idea here is we will be taking small programming projects from the Zazmo Arcade Pack and turning them into video tutorials. Check it out and see what you think! We’d love to know if you enjoy them.

Clueless Programmer Episode 1 – Using GameMaker Studio 1 to create the Zazmo Arcade Pack




Clueless Programmer Episode 2 – Using GameMaker Studio 1 to create the Zazmo Arcade Pack




Zazmo Arcade in Early Access right now!

We went into Steam Early Access with the Zazmo Arcade and we’d love you to check out the store and support us if you like. We have a discount bundle to get Boss 101 and Zazmo together as well as a discount on the Zazmo Arcade Pack for all Boss 101 users!

 

Thank you again for joining us and remember to always – live your dreams!!!

-Tim

Hello and welcome to the weekend Zazmo Arcade Pack (ZAP) update!

First off - YES! We are bringing the Zazmo Arcade Pack to the Xbox One! More details coming but the good news here is we were accepted by Microsoft to bring ZAP over to their system. Needless to say - we are stoked!

What has been happening this week?

OK onto the rest of the update. If you have been following along you know we are currently in Early Access. To that end we have some videos of our friends playing the game in this update! Check out the links below.

Well, most of the time was spent tuning the games and getting the high scores hooked up. Up until now the local high scores were connected but we added in the Steam Friends and Global high scores. So yes, you can now see how the rest of the world is doing!

We also continued with specific game tunes. This time we were looking at the game Last Stand and giving it a couple of tweaks to make it more fun. One thing we adjusted was the amount of control the player has. The ships were a slight bit sluggish so we corrected them to be more responsive. We also fixed an issue where enemy ships would target players as they spawned on screen. This lead to a lot of instant kills and quick deaths for player. That’s all gone now.

During the week we started up two new series on game development. We did a segment on the Clueless Artist and had a game night. The Clueless artist took a look at making art for Zazmo and walked our programmer Joshua through the process of a “Get hit” animation. He made the art, animated it and then implemented it himself.

Game night saw us playing a few old classis arcade games in order to get ideas for a new Zazmo Pack. Of course there was a lot of scream and yelling as you might guess!

Check out the video below for a recap of the week as well as a look at some of the Zazmo playthroughs.

Indie Plays Zazmo - short segment and we queued it up to the beginning!

Game Night at the Donley Time Foundation

We talk about game dev while scream and shouting at arcade games from nearly 30 years ago.





Look forward to net week having more programming talk as well! Remember to always - LIVE YOUR DREAMS!

-Tim

Hello and welcome back to the latest Zazmo Arcade Pack update!

Game testing and tuning continue

We have a few new things to drop in your lap this week. We are working on the achievements for the game and have an art set for the high score awards to show. Check out the image below. It represents some of the medals we will be awarding for various games and high scores in those games. The idea is to keep a base look and have some sort of tier (or star) system to represent higher and harder achievements.

I know the whole star thing gets used a lot but it is a really good way to show things progressing. Well, that and trophies. Haha



Game and Development Twitch Streams Continue

Episode 3 of the Clueless Programmer went off this week. Check out Joshua teaching time all about ways to code movement of your characters and objects with the gamepad.  





We cover a lot of interesting (well, to me at least) ways that Zazmo is setup. Joshua walks me through a lot of his thinking as a programmer and overall – I learned something! Haha

Game Development Dev Talks and Game Night

Joshua and I sat down and played some old arcade games, including the ones that inspired the Zazmo arcade (specifically Rip-Off). We explore co-op games to find what is working and why!

Check out Episode 2 and 3 below. Lots of fun laughs and good times.

Episode 2





Episode 3 – playing Cadillacs and Dinosaurs

We find out freaking a BLANKA look alike is in this game!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ej9_Dz41e54

Ok – more to come and don’t forget we will be coming to the Xbox One too!! YEAH BUDDY!

Thank you again for all your support and talk with you soon. Remember to always – LIVE YOUR DREAMS!

Hello and welcome to the Zazmo Arcade Weekly update!

As you might have noticed we are moving over to a more video-centric weekly presentation. We do regular devlogs and those are the de-facto updates for us during the week.

From here on out until the end of ZAP development you can look forward to at least TWO game development videos a week from us. In the videos we will talk about the progress, challenges and fun we had over the last few days as well as give you a heads up for future development.

Check out these series which are all part of the Zazmo Arcade development timeline

Clueless Artist – this is our lead programmer Joshua walking our clueless programmer (me) through actual Zazmo game Development problems. Worth a watch if you are wondering how we do code things

Clueless Artist – this is me showing Joshua how we create art and animation for the Zazmo Arcade Pack! Another in a series of behind the scenes magic!

Game Night – this is normally Joshua and me playing our game or old retro arcade games and looking to fine interesting design, code or art aspect in them.

Regular Game Dev Stream – this is us just making Zazmo together in real time. We work and then test out ideas and features.

So there you go. Check out the latest Streams below and we look forward to seeing you on Twitch! Stop by and say hi if you can!
