Posted by Indecom on Aug 11th, 2012

Hey all! It's been a hectic week in the dev department of miniFlake, from personal holidays to hectic unforseen events, and crazy development issues. MiniFlake has managed to survive after tredging through the trenches of game dev warfare and ALPHA 3 has finally made it! Let's take a gander at what's been changed!


First here's the missing update list from ALPHA 2:

  • Item Array in place for easier handling of items
  • Minimap introduced into gameplay
  • Doors added to dungeon creation
  • Container objects in place, such as lootable bags
  • Custom Controls menu (for you qwertz players)
  • Improved player speed while holding down directional key
  • Improved Dungeon generation
  • Drop and examine inventory items now possible
  • Several Bug fixes introduced: debugged Tome cover, as well as many other issues.


And now for ALPHA 3:
 

  • Mockup village to demonstrate various new tiles
  • Dungeons now have an exit that lead back to town
  • The players stats are being handled in a new method that allows for all copies of the player to share the same stats (important for the developer)
  • ¬†Framework for better visual quality has been introduced, has yet to be fully implemented (will fix the tearing and glitching pixels)
  • All post processing effects are being handled by one persistent object.
  • Line of sight calculations arent used in town (player can see all surroundings, even behind buildings)
  • The following art Assets have been created:\
  1. Cobblestone tileset
  2. Dirt Path tileset
  3. Grass tileset
  4. Tall Grass tileset
  5. Mountain rock tileset
  6. Shallow water tileset
  7. House tileset
  8. Various house decorations, chairs, potted plants, beds
  9. Various outdoor decorations, trees, stumps, clotheslines.

As you can see, even though it's been a crazy week, a lot of work has been put into the continued development of miniFlake. Go ahead and show your support by placing a preorder and gain access to all alpha and beta updates up to the final release!

Cheers,
Wolfgang Wozniak and Indecom
