We've been working super hard lately on getting some new features ready and seeing as the Indie of the Year thing is coming up it seems a good a time as any to show off! Some of this stuff isn't super recent, but we haven't really posted about it yet.

Dynamic water!

Dynamic water!
This took a lot of tweaking but I think it looks pretty good right now. It's just a flat mesh being deformed, with "waves" moving backwards and forwards and making the mesh's vertices move up or down. The player just moves with the closest vertices up and down, so it looks like he's bobbing around. I want to do some shader work and make it look a lot more cartoony, but the mechanics of it are pretty much done!

New animations ingame!

New player animations!
Corey has been working on one of the many planned idle animations. The player is going to have a bunch of different ones that'll get picked from randomly, with some of them being dependent on the situation they're in. There's also a new death animation in that GIF!

Sky Temple Zone concept

Sky Temple Zone artwork!
Here's a sneak preview of the next zone we're working on. You're up in the mountains, surrounded by clouds. Perhaps some sort of cloudfamily reunion?!

Just a quick update right now, but we'll probably post again in the next week or so with some shots of the new rain mechanic we've been working on.

Indie of the Year Awards
So it's the Indie of the Year awards and it would mean so much if you'd vote for us. We're hoping to make it into the Top 100 if we can, and it would be a huge motivation boost if we did. Even if we don't, every vote means a lot!

Tune in next time!
