Made this "fish first encounter" cutscene:





I finally get to use all these fancy water effects I made before Smiley This is just the beginning though, I want to have much more sophisticated water scenarios later

That is so good, with the flooding! Terrifying.

Thanks) Ye, it's also fun to make those liquid interactions, stuff like flooding and flushing, I'm planning to make more later and m.b. with the airlocks, i.e. you'll be able to transitions between flooded and normal areas through a chamber that'll flush the water

I agree with Prinsessa, that's a fantastic first encounter (you could even build up the tension a bit longer before the glass breaks)

When players reach this point, will they have seen any liquid interactions yet? Because I'm thinking: there's plenty of games where liquids are either non-existent or just a "static" thing that affects movement, so if you avoid all liquids until that moment, then they won't know the game has liquid physics yet and you can really surprise them!

Thanks) Nope, that's not the first time when the player interacts with liquids. At the beginning of the level you immediately drop into water with no enemies in it, you'll also see a hint that this is a new environment and key mapping for swimming and boosting. Then you'll need to get out of this safe water and go further, this "bunker" like thing goes right after that, so you've just seen the water and when the glass breaks you know what to do (kinda) Smiley

Hey.

Well, I postponed this project for some time. I got pretty obsessed with an idea of turning my 2D engine into 3D with a built-in editor, modern graphics (i.e PBR), Temporal AA, soft shadows, etc. So far it's going well, I'm planning to start another topic here on TIGSource once I get to the game making with it, right now I'm mostly focused on the internals. Here're some video of it BTW, in case anyone's interested:

As for "The Mission", I think I'm gonna continue this project after a while once I get some inspiration for it. Recently I got stuck with it in sense of gameplay, kinda didn't know what to do next.

Cool stuff, but maybe try to finish something or you'll risk ending up with a chain of uninished projects like so many other programmers out there... (me included)

Yes, I agree, but the thing is, I kinda stuck with "The Mission". I feel like something is wrong or missing, like it needs a touch of a good game designer in order to become something worthy. When I started it, I had a vision for it, at least for a couple of first levels, but now when I look at it I just can't figure out what should go next...
I think I'll come back to it some time later, the same happened with my previous game btw, which I've actually released. It the meantime I really want to see how this new 3D engine of mine goes Smiley

A custom engine... that sure wins my heart. Take your time, keep doing what you enjoy.

Too much got in the way for anything to write about last month to get done, but there's going to be one next month for sure, already gotten a bunch of stuff done! c:
