This is a short documentation of the evolution of my game Ballistic Tanks. As I am just starting out and this is my first game, this is a really big deal for me. I've been working on it for the past 8 months or so, with a big 4-month hiatus in between. A big chunk of the time was just trying to figure stuff out since like I said, this is my first game. I'll be showing the different stages as I was going through development, and all the major improvements that were added thanks to input from /r/gamedev on Reddit. On that sub I frequently posted on Feedback Fridays and Screenshot Saturdays and that where I always get useful input.

And just a bit of background, I'm a motion designer by trade so I should say that I am comfortable with art and animation. Therefore I decided to use a very beginner friendly engine Construct 2, so I can focus on my strengths.

Just to start, here is what it looks like today. This is a quick cut from my Greenlight trailer.
