Hidden Asset is an isometric assassination/stealth game with an emphasis on utilizing high-tech gear and your environment to avoid detection. As you progress through the game, new equipment will be purchasable for the money you make. The game takes place in a not-too-distant future devastated by a global economic crisis. In this world, corporations are no longer under control of the law. Or morals. They will do whatever it takes to get rid of the competition, including hiring corporate assassins. You are such an assassin. Working for whoever hires you. Killing whoever they tell you to. You will infiltrate businesses. Shoot up offices. Assassinate CEOs. It’s all just business. But it will soon become much more than that...

Showing some new assets and talking a bit about how the 2D isometric rendering works.

Posted by on

While I spent most of the past two weeks fixing various bugs, I also did manage to get a few new assets made. So in the above video, I show some of these new assets. I also talk a bit about how the 2D isometric rendering works differently from a 3D engine where all the depth sorting is handled by the GPU. In my fully 2D engine, all depth sorting has to be handled in code/manually, and everything needs to be drawn back to front on a per tile basis.

One of the new assets I made is a fire extinguisher. This was just meant to be a decoration at first, but I've come up with two gameplay mechanics for fire extinguishers as well: They can be activated to provide a smoke cover, and they can be ruptured to blow up and kill any unfortunate souls standing nearby. The latter will require a new gadget that I've dubbed the Precision Blast for now. It's not yet implemented in the game, though. I won't be implementing any of the new gadget ideas I have until after closed alpha testing, which will hopefully commence in a couple of weeks once I have the 2nd map done. I'll announce the closed alpha testing and how to sign up for it in a development video when the time comes.
