Neon Tail is an open world roller skating game where you follow a young girl’s adventures and save the streets of Bluepulse City from dimensional disaster. She will meet many colorful characters and explore many fantastic locations of the city, from its various districts (shopping, business, residential etc) to its subways and sewers, to the unknown planes of existence. The game is inspired by the urban dynamism of Jet Set Radio, the character development, narration, and emotional connections from Life is Strange, and the open world freedom from new gen Batmans.

The develop log of Neon Tail on March 10th, 2018. Improving and adding function of grinding control, feels and orientation, jumping animation selection, wallrides, and so on.

Posted by on

A lot of things are happening lately. I’ve laid down several courses for the project to take depending on our situation.
But beside preparing documents, plannings and other stuff indirectly related to the game content, I improved several basic control details, actually changing a lot to the playing feels.

  • The grinding control, feels and orientation.
  • The jumping has a smart animation selection, avoiding flips when detecting walls.
  • Added slight aerial control, making a tremendous difference in combo difficulty.
  • Wallrides are now separated into 2 states : classic wallride, with gravity pull and no control over direction and Boosting wallride.
  • Added a mockup of the residential area, preparing a whole new environment workflow as given the size of the levels, the usual way won’t make it. (back to the ugly checker environment for now, but we’re working on it!)
  • As usual, lots of miscellaneous bugs fixed.

See you next week! :)
