What's Antipaint? It's an intense, fast and colorful twinstick shooter. Each enemy you pop becomes paint. Each level you beat becomes art! Rise up to the challenge and become a true artist!
What, you've never done a painting before? Fear not, I'll show you the ropes!
First off, select the right tool for the job.
Every artist has their favorite - I'm sure you'll find something that will suit your style.
Next up, choose a palette.
It can be your favorite colors, your most despised colors, something to match your mood - anything!
Then all you have to do is splat all sorts of these weird little doodles
Presto - a painting appears before your very eyes!
Now show me - do you have what it takes?
Greetings, Prospective Painters!
It's time for another Antipaint development update. Here's what I've been working on.
Just after posting the previous development update, TheDane from our discord server suggested a neat little feature - the ability to zoom out to see the whole painting. So I implemented it. Cool!
Antipaint needed a big baddie battle. So I began experimenting with a boss design. I want the final game to feature several different bosses, all with their own unique quirks. This one is a bit simple, he charges at you, then turns around and does it again. If you hit it enough, it will start spawning minions and moving faster. Simple, but effective.
In order to shake things up a bit I've added an enemy that runs away from you instead of running towards you. With this design it becomes a bit easier to paint something you want as you can guide these little fellas to where you want them to be. Or you can just splat them.
I've toyed around with the idea of symmetry and I am really liking the results. It allows me to create very different and neat-looking paintings. It also adds some complexity into the game as it's a bit harder to spot the enemies as there are several moving lines on screen that do not contain enemies. Neat!
I've also been spending some time on refining and optimizing the UI and getting things to work with a controller. These tasks aren't as fun or glamorous, but you've got to do them. Apart from that I've also tweaked some animations, added some neat little camera bobbing, changed up a few sprites and fixed various issues.
It's been a productive month and things are moving along nicely.
