This is Jack - a guy that met Satan and tricked him into promising to never take his soul He wasn't good enough for paradise either, so when he died he ended up in purgatory Death has now brought him back to life to deal with Satan's Halloween Shenanigans, in exchange for a solution to his Eternal Torment
So during the past few days I have been making a number of improvements to the game according to feedback
First I increased the number of enemies around the map and put in some additional stuff trying to fill in the map, you can see the enemies in circles below. I had to implement a couple of lines of optimizations to avoid doing any calculations for this amount of enemies while out of sight, but it was easy.
So now about half the level has a medium to high distribution of enemies.
I also added a tower to the level, which will be your destination. Just an asset from the asset store for now. Added some fires and voila:
Then I wanted to add some settings so that people could have at least a bit of control on performance in-game, before I roll out a complete set of controls. Someone mentioned motion blur was too much and I saw someone play with a low frame-rate and it was really bad.
So I added motion blur, bloom and ambient occlusion controls, since those are the heaviest effects.
Finally I created a live cursor, which recognizes enemies and tracks them if you can hit them, at the moment it is just a green particle effect, but the plan is to make her into a fully fledged character. Joan the Pixie will follow Jack around and give him hints, target enemies and have a voice, so that the game isn't as silent and lonely as it is now.
Next on the agenda?
but first the map. You can download and play it now
More feedback came in from a few sources and repeat reviewers (fans!). One was a video and showed me something I would never do, others were descriptions...
So this is Jack McLantern – my take on the Jack o’ lantern myth – what happened after the guy who convinced Satan not to take his soul… well it’s...
Jack I don't feel so good - Dissolving zombies, knights and barrels.
