Underliner Devlog #16 (April 22, 2022)


Hello. There were tremendous progress for last ten days! I'll show them over the next few posts.



Let's begin with a snapshot! I slightly revised the entry area.



I finally revised this stairs. It was weird looking slope before revision. It's much cleaner than the previous one!



Visual elements related puzzles are all done! Cables were added, lollipops were mapped, and some of the materials were improved.



I also revised this area. You can see the rock models are improved. (Yes. the snapshot image is a bit outdated :D)

I still have a lot of things to share! Stay tuned Smiley

Underliner Devlog #17 (May 1, 2022)

The game development is officially done, so this post would be more like a post-mortem than a devlog.



In the beginning of the development, which is around January this year, It felt really really hard to design puzzles. But interesting thing is, it got so much easier at some point. Maybe around early March. I don't know the exact reason, but it's probably because of the change in goals of the puzzles.

Early in the development, the puzzles' goals were "hitting a certain object". But when I design puzzles that requires this goal, They always ended up too confusing to solve. Even if it was an easy puzzle. Then, I was playing with some code changing colors of puzzle objects, and I suddenly thought the puzzles could be better to have a new goal: Hitting all the puzzle objects.

Designing puzzles became much easier after that decision. It's really interesting because I came up with this idea thanks to my experiment with some codes. I remember Jonathan Blow saying that he created some of the core rules of Braid while he was programming. He often uses this anecdote to explain his view about the importance of being able to program when it comes to game design.



Underliner will be released on May 4, 2022 at 7pm PDT. I think you might like it if you liked puzzles game like The Witness or Stephen's Sausage Roll. Even if you didn't like these game, I suggest you to give it a try! :D

As I've told you last time, the game's development is done. So I'll share some things I haven't showed you before.



This is another kind of obelisk you'll see several times in the game. If you get close to these, a phrase will show up. This could be a spoiler, so I won't say too much about it. All I can say is that these obelisks are really important to understand the hidden meanings of the game.



Also, I added a lot of new UIs in the game. The reset key indicator above is one of them. I didn't put in that much time into it, but I am satisfied with the result.

Looks like a robust idea with endless possibilities to extend; kind of a game that has to be tested in order to say anything useful.

Minimalistic, abstract graphics fit well to puzzle games. They make it easy for the player to understand levels and concentrate on the essential things. Consider using subtly glowing materials for the most important objects in order to make good contrasts and bring out the shapes. Also, smoothing the camera movement would at least make the video clearer.

Have you thought about coding an AI to assist you to generate the puzzles? For instance, running the level backwards and placing objects on the way.
