Today i want to say some stuff, i will try again to update this development blog more often, lets say a post a week or maybe each 2 weeks, deppends of how many progress i did in that lapse.
This last stage of the game begin as a graphics update to the current 50 level demo of the game (available for press), the game is running smoothly on OUYA, PC and Vita and im so happy about it, as Ivan was, in the beginning of 2014 we talk about how to work in the last stage of development, but one or two weeks starting 2014 i got sick by “gastritis” for about 5 months, maybe less, and of course i was not able to work on the game all this time, so the game is delayed by about half year, sorry i had to confess now.
The game has been already tested by some people by now and we added a lot of tester feedback to the “graphics” upgrade, and while planning, I got too excited and added new features to the game which will require a complete redesign of all the levels, all the old features and challenges can still be used and by adding this movements i will show in a moment, the game feels better, player can move faster and game mechanics expand.
in the last beta, players often fall from the cliff of the level, it was constant and even when testers feel it was their fault, i decided to add a “hang”,this feature itself added a lot of life to the movement and i have a lot of new challenges in mind for various levels!.
something else that was added was more attack options, like a scratch and the hability to shoot fire trough your mouth! dude.. you are playing with a dragon, this has to be here!!
i still may not have a lot of new “graphics” to show but a lot of bugs have been fixed, a lot of graphics effects have been programed and of course, the project has been cleaned, rememmber that this begin as a cellphone game back in 2012, a lot has changed and i do not regret making this change.
Also, just about 3 weeks ago, Ivan Aldaz, a second developer on this game and of course a close friend passed away, he did an amazing GUI and texture work on this game. I will be missing him so much. Thanks for helping on this game that was your dream too pal.
