SUDDEN GLORY Development – Particles and flashy bits

Here’s a small video of me working on some of the particle effects (and the game logic that spawns them), and some of the art assets (and the logic on how they behave).

For the particles, the idea is that when certain things get destroyed, they leave a crater behind (or some burnt wreckage). I also wanted a random chance to spawn other things, like fire, smoke, electrical arcs, and what-not. The script I created uses a “chance” variable for calculating the odds in which a special “additional” effect would spawn.

For the art, I have these big battle ships, and they have weak points for the other team to attack. However, I have no way to convey to the player that they needed to attack these points. So, I’m creating “ship components” that will flash to show they are “points of interest,” and since all you do is fly and shoot, you’ll naturally try shooting it, and it’ll explode. See? Conveyance.

More of these are likely to come. Stay tuned. I also use that channel to put up my Twitch streams, so… uhh… like and subscribe? I guess? Is that how the TubeYou works?


New Year, New Game, New Keith

It’s  been quite some time since I’ve made a real post on this blog. During the past few, well, years my life has been making a number of ups and downs. I landed myself a new job thanks to this blog, and now it’s time I payed some proper attention to it.

Starting with the game I’ve been working on – what, after all this time, you think I’ve just faded away and just spin my wheels? Bah, I say! It’s high time to unveil my pet project that I’ve been working on for the past 10-12 months.

Ladies and Gentlemen…
