Lots happening this week as I've published the Coming Soon Steam Page, leading with the Peasant Uprise trailer.

Time to put all the work done together into a gameplay session with the hope of showcasing how the game plays.

It's great to have received praised on my last gameplay video and some have been nice enough to provide some good feedback which I've been working on.  It's also good practice to give back to this indie game community by trying out other people's work and share some suggestions when adequate.

Peasant Uprise offers a dynamic world were the events and time used in a particular level will have an impact on the rest of the world.  In this devlog I will cover the change I've done to manage reinforcements.

This week I'm covering both the checkpoint feature as well as the Swayne banner facility both allowing the player to move their rebellion quicker along the level.

After some hard look at game play, it was clear to me that the current UI approach to manage peasants was problematic, and while I've done multiple iterations on it, they just seemed like a way to mask the real problem.  Looking at the task afresh helped me come up with this new system which I hope you'll find interesting.

I'm happy to announce that Peasant Uprise is now in the beta testing phase, where some brave testers can get an early peak on the game in exchange for some feedback.

Big thanks to those who are participating in the alpha testing phase.  So far it has helped me understand which areas of the game need a bit more work.

This is well overdue but finally here, Peasant Uprise finally counts with a localization system that can handle multiple languages.  In this devlog I'll share the challenges I faced, the decisions I had to make and the approached I followed.

I am happy with this new system as ties well with the game overall; it is related to the final objective as well as other core elements such as resource collection and questing.  Let me know what you think.

It's important to be up to date with the new features your tools of choice offers, but it's also as important to analyze what you're trying to get out of it and at what cost.

My respects, this is not a game easy to make

How many people did you manage to get on your wishlist so far on Steam ?

Indeed, specially as a solo indie game developer.  As far as whishlist, a bit less than a thousand at the moment.

I've showcased the different types of enemies in the past but the main entity is the troop.  In this devlog, I'll dig in a bit more about my approach to handle troops and how it spawns enemy soldiers.

Towers are back and with the changes implemented I hope they bring a different challenge than usual enemies.

Good progress, may I ask how do you keep yourself motivated for such a large project?

Thanks!

Different methods work for different people, so it's hard to give a 'global' answer that would work for everyone.  And I would be lying if I said I don't have my own ups and downs.  However, what works for me is being extremely organized.  I follow a strict agile project management process.  I break my work into sprints or blocks of work and use Trello as a way to track my individual tasks.

So when I get overwhelmed about all the work there is to do, I just try to put those thoughts aside and focus on the current sprint and the current task.  If you're granular enough, you will find that bit of motivation; "Hey, I can at least get that done today and get it out of this list."

The devlog 58 talks about this in more detail, if you want to check it out.
