And finally the weekly! Kept you waiting, huh?
Over the past 2 weeks we got lots of stuff done, from internal changes in the code, over new graphics, to a change in our workflow! And now we’re gonna share all of it with you.
We just finished another batch of little interface elements that are required for different sub-menus. Because of some heavy workload, we had a bit of a slowdown here but we still have our milestone for October and it includes (at least partially) creating the menu. So more updates will come over the weeks and surely some screens as well!
Like always we are working on more details for the cargo ship. Tina started working on the bridge of the ship. Want to take a peek at it? Well we have a little Teaser for you right here:
More in the next weeks! Teekuh worked on small details like chairs, tables and the like (used for the cabins on the ship).
Workflow & Concept
We are still a young group of more or less random people, trying to make what we love (It’s games in case you wonder!). So after we had several issues with communicating graphic requirements, we realized something: We can’t start thinking about graphics when creating sprites. We always planned ahead with descriptions, but never had a clear vision for the visuals. Thus, we need concept art for the sprite artist to give them a better picture of the world we want to build. We think that this is an important step and it will help us to increase the quality of the game. You already saw concept art of the characters and maybe we will release some concept art of the world soon too!
This is all for this weekly. Now have a good day and oh! if you haven’t played our little side-project yet, go ahead and give it try! Just click on the following link:
