Hi... I'm a guy from 1992, who want to be a game developer. At the moment I'm finishing high school (or I think it's called that (Gymnasium in Danish)), and I am soon to start at university to study software development. At the moment I work mostly alone, but I have a project going with a friend of mine. My dream is to start my own company with some fellow game enthusiasts and create the games we want to. If you want to support us, track us here, or become a fan at facebook (just search for Machinic Games)

My first thought: Where did the 2D go!
I really like 2D and I especially like the pixel art, which you seemed to be making in great detail ( even your 3D models looked like pixel art ). I also like the challenges and the solutions to making open worlds in side-scrolling 2D. They always surprise me.

But after looking at the image for some time I saw that you kept some of the old style ( The pixel art ). And a game like this would fit a 3D world.

So I got in doubt. Whatever you do is fine, because they both look amazing. You should just keep it in this "pixel art"-y style.
And if you decide to keep it in 3D, just make sure it isn't becoming just another 3D game.

Keep at the good work! I hope you make the right decision!

I really like the sails, but also the water that splashes up, when the boat is hit!

It's amazing how smooth it looks! Is it physics based or animated?

The canon looks awesome! And the debris even more so!
Is the debris made in 3D?

This looks much better. In comparison the top one now almost looks like foggy weather.

Keep it up!

Looks awesome so far! :)

Are you going to work on cannons and more combat next?
Because that would make the game much more enjoyable already!

Or have you something else in mind?

Turning into a skeleton is at least easy to notice. You are never in doubt about being dead. But for the moment it seems like you can still move, when being a skeleton, but I guess that that will change xD Maybe the skeleton will sink slowly to the bottom if in the water?

Does the campfire have any function in the game or is it just for the looks?

Neat updates!
So are all ships going to be made in 3D from now on?
I'm looking forward to see the galleon with masts! It will look awesome! :D

And I love the games you mentioned too, so I will definitely follow this project to see where you will take it! :D

This looks AMAZING! Is the ship made in 3D or is it animated on turning?

Neat fighting system ( as far as I can tell ) and the people going red upon being hit makes the system easier to understand ( from your pictures here ).

Also, do you plan on keeping the screen size so low, or would you make options for people to choose from?

And I am looking forward to see how you will create the AI. Maybe you could explain that in one of your posts?

By the way that transition is made it seems kind of out of place if you wanted to interact with stuff on different layers ( for instance shooting at a ship in the distance ), but maybe you just made the player need to shift layer to interact with things on a specific layer?

But the transition still looks neat, though! xD
Have you tried making the transition with black?

Awesome work!
And the layer idea is not so bad, if it is implemented correctly. But I guess you will figure out a nice way to make it work with content properly!

I can't wait to try it all out and possibly return with some feedback!

But it looks like the height of the water is changing when going up and down, like the water raises when you go up for instance...
But it still looks amazing :D

Would the ships look exactly the same from that angle, if they are made of voxels? Because your ships look awesome!
