What does snowflake generation have to do with Cannon Brawl? I'm prototyping a new building for Cannon Brawl, the Frost Tower!

Posted by on

A lot of the fun in Cannon Brawl comes from choosing from all our buildings. So more buildings = more fun! Right now I'm prototyping a Frost Tower, and I thought you guys might like a preview.

The Frost Tower fires a little snow ball, which explodes into an ice crystal:

I wrote a little ice crystal generator, and each ice crystal is generated procedurally so every one is unique! The crystal does damage in it's circle area, and freezes the cooldowns on all buildings within.

The building art for the Frost Tower itself is my cheesey programmer mockup for now, but Theresa is working on the real version with all 3 upgrades this week, and I'll post another update on that when it's ready!
