So What Next for DeerHunter?

That is really up to you!

Free aim?,
New soundtrack songs from other producers I know?,
New backgrounds for that vary between levels?,
All of the above or something else?

I'm really stuck at a point in my life at the moment where I have little motivation or time to spend on the things that I used to love. But despite that I keep coming back and looking at deerhunter and wondering what to do next! It may be a crappy little game and it is probably also never going to make me a penny, but I'm hooked to playing it and adding little fun things.

So if you see this update drop a comment below and let me know what you would like to see in DeerHunter, or just generally a comment about anything to do with Obscure Worlds, myself, or my game(s).

Any news about other stuff?

The new content system mentioned in the last post is chugging along beautifully with 2 titles going forward, SubFace and Carcass.
I've mentioned Subface before and truth be told when it is more complete I will talk about it more, at the moment I'm not even sure what it will contain, Carcass though is a little more set in stone...

Nearly done with this bit!
The game setup menu, totally finished (cue shock and awe!).

With Carcass I'm aiming to produce a new version of the AI prototype I made available on my company profile on IndieDB, with more access to the actual design of the creatures themselves and a focus on creating a hive of different castes that acts as one whole feeding itself and surviving based on Ants.


The Original Program in all its super basic glory at a more relaxed moment!

Presentation is going to be incredibly basic because I just want to play around with and make as much of the fun I had making the AI prototype and designing little lifeforms available to the player.

Though saying all this, as I said in the beginning I am currently working less on my games than ever before.

As always have a great day, a fantastic week and thanks for taking interest in my work.
I'll leave you today with a piece of concept art I made for an unmentioned game I hope to have the time / funding to develop in the future.

Recently was playing and felt like the game was a little forgiving for damage so I've added a damage modifier where you can multiply the amount of damage...

I got to level 144~ You can camp in the bottom center of the starting zone and just mash every directional shot input to eradicate deer by the thousands. One thing I ran into though- I was hit repeatedly without any movement input and was pushed outside the game frame causing both the next wave to not come and my shots to stop. After walking back into the frame it resumed; just a little bug to watch out for.

At first I thought this said "Now with 100% more beer." Imagine my disappointment.

Beer could be arranged, do you think a beercan would make a good boss?

On the subject of Carcass and SubFace, slow is the answer... they are long projects and I'm currently making £0 a week so short term is all!

This new state system is so much fun, added a transition between menus to TYPEFIGHTER just for fun earlier.

Apr 27 2014

No I'm not dead! Just trying to make money in other things, on the topic though check out this menu of a quick game! T.co

Apr 17 2014

Excited about subface, menus almost done and a new job working with fishing weights might actually mean I have time finally for projects!
