[DevLog] Crater Hounds - Rogue-lite shooter

  • Having a hard time getting the brightness right. On some devices these look really dark, on my workstation they're fine.

    What's it like for you guys, brightness ok or too dark?

  • Quick update:

    Started integrating a first pass of environmental tiles, map is not yet done. Will keep updating the arcade version until the first level is done.

    Next I'll look into lights and FX to bring the maps to live more; then I'll be iterating over responsiveness of camera and controls a bit.

  • testing some enemy proportions. some working, some not.

    still needs colorizing.

  • As I've been updating the demo mission I encountered and resolved a few glitches that affected difficulty.

    I'm finding the game significantly more challenging more, especially range combat, But that's just my personal impression ...

    I would love to get some feedback on how the currently difficulty is perceived! Can i get some of you guys to give me some impressions?

  • Been experimenting with lighting a bit. Yeah, I'm that horrible with colors ... liking the vividness though.

    Couple things are still on the wrong layer still, hence not lit correctly

    Also reworked camera leading/dragging and general combat feedback.

  • Got a first pass of the dungeon generation up.

    Only generates a single theme so far, and mission objectives and difficulty control aren't in yet, as well as many other features.

    But dungeon generation works and is ready for extending!

    Sabotage: Destroy the Power Node

    Retrieval: Steal the Mech

    Purge: Kill everything

    The game has finally found its structure and scope.

    I'm working towards making it a rogue-lite twin-stick shooter, with loads of Mechs and Guns to find along the way and more options to unlock across multiple session.

  • A lot has happened, just swinging by here for a few impressions of where things are these days:

    A quick introduction of the Player character: The Hound Trooper

    The basic Rig, callable via Drop Pod:

    Anomalies - a mutator system that modifies random gameplay aspects

    in this case: time moves only when the player moves ...
