Hey Everyone at IndieDB,

We have had a massive influx of interest since showing the creatures and further progress with the buildings and it really is amazing so a small thankyou to everyone for the support.

This week has been fairly busy we started working on a test environment we can throw things together and first up we created 2 grass textures that would be predominant the idea behind having different versions is to help with the diversity in the engine these are further changed in engine by overlapping flowers and grass. The first two textures we made were these:

grass tile

then the second one which is just more of a yellow grass to help break up the one flat colour of green

grass tile02

Then we looked at creating grass and adding some sway to make it seem just that bit nicer and then worked on a water shader which still needs some work but its a good start. We also added in lots of visual lighting and fx to start getting the look of the game down, in the pictures you can see we have depth of field and fog effects we have also added in light shafts and lens flare when you look up into the sky and generally made things look nicer then the default setting.

For this week we are looking at implementing the mechanics around interacting with companion so there should be a fairly big tech update showing off everything we have in place, its really cool seeing this slowly come together and once we have the mechanics in place we plan to start putting in the companion and get the main character concepted.

All in all a busy week and a busy week to come. i hope you all have a great week

Kind Regards

An update for the lack of an update :D

Hey guys,

So rather then just leave this week with what would look like nothing i still want to post something that lets everyone know what we have been doing just there is currently a lack of images so what have we been working on well actually quite alot but its all behind the scenes stuff currently we have been working on and have working:

Sprint
Crouch
Jump
Companion Following
Companion sprinting
Radial Menu with effects
Hunger system for the companion
Health system
Health and Hunger bars currently in the players viewport though this is up for change what i want is for the pet to show hunger by animating to exclude the need for a bar

What we are currently working on

Radial Menu implementation so that you have to be aiming at the companion to make it appear currently you can make it appear anytime by pressing x for testing purposes

Item inventory/list so that we can start feeding the companion the intended way rather then pressing F to fill the creature up this is currently this way just for testing purposes as well

And then we plan to take the companion further currently it feels very un-natural how the companion follows even if it is just a placeholder object so looking at ways we can have the pet moving around while the player idles.

There has been alot of work but rather then just show blueprints or pictures of unfinished stuff i want to wait till next week to give a bigger more beautiful article for everyone to see.
At any rate i hope everyone is doing well and having fun.

Kind Regards
