UI Rework

This week, I’m going to write about the two core components of the game UI. The navigation lights and the child status panel. The navigation lights were added because the feedback from the play testing showed that people were getting lost a lot and needed an easier way to navigate the map. The child status panel was added because the old one was long due for a revamp.
So, to start with, the child status panel. This is what the old […]

A programmer friend was trying to make a 3D box and asked me to do a tutorial, so I made a short introduction to 3DS Max for beginners. Hopefully even programmer friendly! 🙂

Beta Presentation, Week 5

 
So this week has been interesting in several ways.
To start with we have had both good and bad news. The good news is that we are almost done with the project. We think we have done what we originally thought we would do but, here comes the bad news,  we are still missing out on some of the art.
This might have been because of lacing communication but also because our artist is the only artist and he has been […]

But I have now gotten to play a game inspired by that fantasy, and it’s one of the […]
