Hello my dear Rogues!

In this news I want to show you the progress I made with the "Rogue Engine Editor" - an editor I make exclusively for Caasi's Odyssey! With this editor you will create the Rogue Adventure of your dreams. At least it will enable 100% mod support for Caasi's Odyssey!

But let's start with a small video which summarizes the progress. Have fun and enjoy the trip! :)

Watch the video in 4K @ 60 FPS!

Stay a while and listen

The Fairy Room


In the last weeks I implemented all special rooms to make them editable. The biggest challenge was to implement the "Fairy Room", because it has its very own "Liquid Shader", which should be editable in the editor too!

Fairy Room

The Liquid Shader:

  • Flow Speed (float) adjustable
  • Liquid Effect (Texture2D, Color) adjustable
  • Liquid Overlay (Texture2D, Color) adjustable

You can change the liquid shader by modifying those most basic aspects of the shader.

Liquid Shader Basics


The texture on the top is the "Liquid Effect". The shader code analyses this texture to distort the "Liquid Overlay" (bottom right) according to the color values in a range between red and blue. Finally the output becomes blended together with the texture in the bottom left corner. Can you see the effect in the next screenshot?

BlendedLiquid


You can change every texture to create your very own "Liquid Effect Shader" (as you saw a bit in the video). You can even modify how fast the liquid will flow.

How about creating a nice lava or slime flow effect? The possibilities are endless!

Implemented Rooms



All rooms from the main game project "Caasi's Odyssey" are implemented so far!

Here they are:

Boss Room

Blood Room

What's Next?


I'm currently working on implementing "Particle Effects" for everything. It will make the rooms more vivid and special. More in the next update next year!

See you in the next news!

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! :)



I hope you enjoyed this update. Don't forget to follow me here on IndieDB!

Hey, thx for you comment! And sorry for the late reply. I don't know why, but I didn't notice your comment until now.

It's a fast HLSL shader (DirectX), but it also gets converted to GLSL (OpenGL), so the game is compatible with Linux.

Good luck with your kickstarter and with your great game! :)

No worries! And thank you for the kind words!

We have a week left and are just shy of our goal. So I think we'll make it. :)

Pssst - Feel free to give us a shout out on Facebook or Twitter! :P

This very good work. The style of ambient lighting with a good solid shadow cast is not common in top-down. Their is also some nice physics in the weapons and I really like the break-up of the snaking Dragon. Look forward to the downloadable. Great art, keep it up!
