Dev-Blog #2 - Quest for a new name, shaders and more!

Posted by on

Well - the most important - and most obvious thing that happened this week was that the game's name had to be changed due to legal reasons. Until we find a better name the game will be simply called "Typing with Jester". So the original Gameboy Classic had these four green colors because of its green screen. Until now i emulated this look, you can still do it if you want to, but now you are able to set your own color palette, with some presets to chose from or by creating one for yourself. This was a rather huge step, but it was totally worth it because the game is much more customizable now and people can enjoy it the way they want to. First the whole game was changed to greyscale instead of greenscale. And then i could start replacing the shade of grey with different colors. After i made a pretty simple color selector i added some preset values (e.g the pre-color gameboy greenscale). But you can also create your own custom palette, and later you will be even able to share these on the Workshop. Other than that - which was a huge part of this week, there were only minor bugfixes and improvements. But nothing really worth mentioning.

With regards and until next week.
