Hey all!

What a fantastic few months it has been! So much has happened in such a short period of time, I'll try and keep it brief!

First up is CnW's engine upgrade: For the longest time Clive 'N' Wrench has been stuck in a very old version of Unity, finally we've made the jump to the latest version! This leap forward has notably improved performance across the board, and has allowed for new post processing effects that really add that extra layer of polish (as well as plenty of other little victories)!

The next huge thing has been alpha testing. Finally I am no longer developing in a bubble... well, sort of anyway! Thanks to an incredibly humbling number of Patreon supporters willing to not only play through, but also provide some incredibly helpful and detailed feedback, CnW is getting better by the day! Just as a few examples, since the first alpha test a few weeks back the following changes have already been implemented:

  • Added further controller support including Sony DS3/DS4 and generic third party pads.
  • Moved several objects (including billboards) from places that made ledge grabbing an issue.
  • Fixed several animation bugs to reduce sliding on occasion when transitioning from idle to walk.
  • Added a more finished version of the belly flop animation and tweaked the physics.
  • Made the sideflip a tad more lenient.
  • Added a part of the hub world which now properly loads into Cajun Mob Bog, as opposed to you being thrown straight in!
  • Increased performance by combining object meshes in several areas.
  • Moved certain collectables to better guide the player to new/hidden areas.
  • Fixed an issue with resolution scaling with certain HUD elements.

I've also added a new dynamic music system to the Space Between Time hub world. Including 12 variations of the same theme, that shifts between each era appropriate section depending on where Clive is standing!

Several people have also taken to YouTube and Twitch with videos and livestreams of themselves playing through these builds. This has both been amazingly helpful, with regard to tweaking level design and fixing issues, but also has really helped spread the word about the game! On that note, if you would like access to future builds yourself, feel free to check out the game's Patreon:

Patreon.com

As I mentioned before, there are several playthroughs on both YouTube and Twitch too! For example, here is an incredibly entertaining example from Gears For Breakfast's Jenna Brown!

That about wraps us up for this time! As always, thank you so much for all your continued support. This experience has been a very humbling one, and I really appreciate people sticking with me for so long!

Whatever happened to the Wii U version?

It was cancelled a little while back now. Unfortunately it was just no longer a viable platform for me to port to (especially with the Switch taking the world by storm). Apologies if that's a disappointment though!

I'm a Wii U developer myself and still releasing on that platform. I was hoping this would come out there too. I don't care for the Switch at all. Sorry to hear it was canceled on Wii U.

There is no point in developing for a "dead" console, especially since the Switch has sold more units and has a bigger fan base in less then a year then the Wii U in its five. I know alot of projects moved to the Switch because its easier to develop for that platform and has a huge fan base, but it is your decision :)

One issue I keep seeing with these kinds of cartoony 3D platformers is the lack of a unified art-style. The screenshots you have there look nothing like the 2D art. It is possible to get around this with a limited budget, for example A Hat in Time made use of a stylized aesthetic akin to cell-shading.

I see where you're coming from, I think it's a subjective thing. Personally I don't think the 2D key are necessarily has to match the art style. I did try cell shading for a while, but it just didn't work as well as the style eventually settled on. I think of it like box art back in the PS1/PS2 days, it often featured high polygon renders which looked vastly different from the actual in-game models.

Thanks for the feedback though!

Hey, would you happen to have a business e-mail address publicly available somewhere? I would like to contact you a little more formally, but I couldn't find your address. I'd appreciate it if you could let me know your public business e-mail, if you just have one. Thanks in advance!

Looking great and still so much more interesting than Yooka Laylee. One thing. I pray that you do not make this game a parody that makes fun of itself or platformers in general. Yoooka Laylee and many other platformers are doing that now. It's so lame and ruins the whole experience. I love this genre and style and making fun of itself is just a bad idea.

Thanks! Not it's not a parody of itself, the humour mostly comes from old school cartoony antics and terribly good puns! There's also plenty of in-jokes and self referential stuff, but based on story beats as opposed to the genre itself.
