Robo's New Look

News

Nothing less than the Best

We've been working hard to polish Zarnok Fortress to make it the best game we can possibly make. Part of this polish has been programming, but a large part of it has been visual.

Triple Kill!


After getting a lot of requests to make the game more colorful, Will Vali (the game's artist) thought it would be fitting to make the protagonist more colorful too!

Fold up!


Robo's World: The Blulite Rocks had a very colorful world, but Robo himself was a simple plain grey, which is how he began in this game too. Eventually, Will pitched the idea of making Robo blue.

Specialist smackdown


As much as I liked the concept image, I thought making him pure blue would be too much like Mega-man. "Well, adding more color will make him more memorable" Will said. "No doubt" I responded. "Of course, if we really wanted to make him memorable, we could make him yellow" (since according to color psychology, yellow is the most memorable color). "Actually, what if we kept the blue but gave him yellow accents?" I asked. "Let me try it out" Will responded.

Level I5 Speedrun


The concept he sent back looked great, so we updated the character model in Spine and added it to the game. If we weren't using Spine, a change like this would have taken a LONG time.

Looking nice so far. It seems like you're really getting quite a lot out of Game Maker.

Currently I am programming the entire game and enemies first, and then I'll make the levels. There will be more "beta-levels" in future demos.
