... of game development!

As some of you might have already noticed, I'm currently working on a music game prototype. The prototype is going to include a fully playable version of the game, but with a small scope of game features. Depending on the impact of the game in the community, I'm going to add features to the game or move on to another project.

The last milestone I hit was finishing the new version of the level editor. This is going to help me a lot in the future to translate the music files into level data for the game. There are already new ideas for the editor, which I want to implement to make the next version even better, but this has low priority right now.

(The second version of the level editor has been finished!)

A couple minutes ago, I've also finished the design concept for the level selection screen1. I'm going to move on to implementation of it tomorrow. I've also finished a starting screen and the biggest part of the main menu. I'll probably re-design the starting screen and main menu, though.

I have also tweaked the game engine here and there to optimize the performance of the engine. Most problems should be fixed and the game is now running much smoother than before. There's a new teaser video aswell, which is showing a little part of the first official track (composed by Tom Klanthe). There are some little graphical changes to the notes and the key effects in addition aswell, which are going to more visible in the next gameplay video, I think.

I'm going to publish further snippets of the game development progress now and then on my profile, so make sure to track me for notifications, if you are no watcher yet.

cheers.

Hey, thanks for your comment. First semester is over and my average score is 1,5 right now, which is already one of the highest scores from all students. I went strong with Mindworld and now I'm going strong with uni :) We're supposed to develop another game within 10 weeks from now and if it turns out well enough, I'll also publish it on IndieDB and depending on how well it is received, I'll continue working on it or not.
