0 comments by 16BitGenocide on Mar 25th, 2014

Have implemented collision, animation, player input, basic shadow system. Still need positional audio and light placement. Continuing work on peripheral editors and utilities to facilitate our content pipeline, expediting the production process. All is functioning satisfactorily so far, well on our way to achieving the goals we set for our engine.

We are sticking with XNA for now because we have created our own engine in it with custom peripheral editors and utilities (collision editor, sprite builders, sprite packers, JSON serialization, ect). In addition we have written our own HLSL code for lighting characters using normal maps. We will be able to port our code to Monogame, if we wish to, which allows the game to operate on more platforms like Linux, Mac and even PS4. We've looked at Unity and will probably move towards that in the future, yet for now we're not prepared to take the plunge and will stick with what we know.

It's unfortunate the Microsoft stopped developing XNA, yet it seems Monogame has given it a bit of new life.

Sounds reasonable. At any rate engine is just a tool..its what you make with it that counts :)

Nice update guys. Very very cool stuff.

Just out of curiosity why are you still hanging onto XNA? Perhaps Unity could give you more freedom and dev speed boost?

Are there some XNA features you are fond of or is it mainly because of your own Engine tech already written to power this noir gem :)

Thanks man. I am actually a fan of SynthWave/DreamWave/Outrun type music. You can expect that type of music in the game.

Thanks for the interest.

Tech-noir? I.E: Cyberpunk?

It's a subtle distinction, but we feel it more accurately describes the narrative we are trying to achieve. Since 'tech-noir' puts a stronger emphasis on the neo-noir elements present in the cyberpunk genre.

These genres/sub-genres are fairly amorphous anyway, but we went with what better portrays our world.

Thanks for the inquiry.
