Loads of bug fixes, level design tweaks, and new features.
I've come to several realizations this week.
With these two ideas in mind, I am focusing the next few months on making Lemma the least frustrating, most enjoyable experience I can.
So I'm trying to come up with puzzles that seem difficult but are actually simple to solve. The wonderful Monument Valley did a great job of this.
Fun fact: that's actually a public domain composite image of the dark side of the moon. I wrote a custom "sky decal" shader to paste it up there while still cooperating with the distance fog.
I kind of want to live there.
So that's where I'm at. I've been stressing a lot lately but I think I can actually finish the game in April. Whether I think I can or not... I have to.
That's it for this week. Thanks for reading!

@willychyr Yeah a bit more alternation would look even better (staircase, no staircase, staircase, ...)

@BlackIceTheGame Outline shader? If you're alright with it applying to the whole scene, you could use an image effect. Otherwise yeah.

@BlackIceTheGame Yeah. This is a custom masochistic XNA renderer though, so I was able to hack it to replace the shader automatically.

Added an overlay shader to automatically coat every material with a nice frosty texture. T.co

I have to admit, the Hatred guys knocked their trailer out of the park. It made me physically ill. Horrifying game. T.co

@NineteenNinjas Do you just use OBS? That's what I use but I've heard people get better performance with the apps from AMD and Nvidia

@NineteenNinjas Woah nice! Ah yeah, streaming'll do the trick I suppose.

@NineteenNinjas Really? What CPU? I've got a relatively slow non-overclocked i5 and even it can run BF4 at like 50% usage.

@NineteenNinjas I dunno man, these days overclocking usually isn't worth the effort, and it just shortens your CPU life...
