In which I reveal new screenshots and talk about the future of Lemma. Another week down.

Posted by on

I've come to several realizations this week.

  1. Lemma is going to be good, but not great. I have to accept my limitations and finish the thing to the best of my ability.
  2. Lemma is more of an experience than a traditional video game.

With these two ideas in mind, I am focusing the next few months on making Lemma the least frustrating, most enjoyable experience I can.

So I'm trying to come up with puzzles that seem difficult but are actually simple to solve. The wonderful Monument Valley did a great job of this.

Fun fact: that's actually a public domain composite image of the dark side of the moon. I wrote a custom "sky decal" shader to paste it up there while still cooperating with the distance fog.

I kind of want to live there.

So that's where I'm at. I've been stressing a lot lately but I think I can actually finish the game in April. Whether I think I can or not... I have to.

That's it for this week. Thanks for reading!

awesome work, and if you end the game the next neat thing to do its create a map editor so the work can be continued :D!

I'm trying to get my friends interested in Lemma, but I fear it will be another clever first-person-puzzle game that doesn't take off.
