Post news RSS Son of Nor Video Dev Diary #29 - Ragtolls Taking A Nap

HUGE content update this week! We put together gorgeous new places! Let me show you around in this week's video.

Posted by on

This week you'll see something else than our usual test level.

  • We're full of chocolate after Easter. In German, you'd say "kugelrund".
  • New color set on the character that players will be able to customize.
  • Improving the tutorial: the new drawbridge is in and works. The rocks need to be exchanged next.
  • Sarahul get their armor, the first piece is already on their body and it works with the rig.
  • There's a slight problem there now, though. Sarahul tend to lean forward too much for some reason.
  • Our Kickstarter, if everything works out, is scheduled for April 17th. Still a lot to do until that date though!
  • New gorgeous red rock test scene where we play with lighting, rock placement and other eye candy.
  • New gorgeous volcanic rock test scene with bones, sand devils where we play with the same things. Bones are a little bright though.
  • Our ragdolls now work really well! Let's celebrate that with some cliff diving.
  • Ragdolls need to rest, too.

We'd be very grateful for any help getting the ball rolling on Kickstarter on April 17th (if everything works out as planned). Every pledge will help :)

Haha, cool video again. Love how that second area looks, but the bones are indeed too bright. I think they should have quite a dark texture on them instead, something that makes them look old.

As for the Kickstarter, I'm going to let you guys know from now that I won't be able to pledge anything. There were many Kickstarter campaigns I wanted to support, but I just don't have the means and money to do it. I think you know how much I like the game now, so it's nothing to do with that. You'll have to take just my feedback instead. I will make a thread for your game on a forum I spend my time on though. Maybe some people there would like to pledge.

As always, I wish you the best!

Cheers, Jon

Yep, bones are too bright. They seem to glow in the dark... :-/

Don't worry Drakenreiter :) Your moral support, insight and tipps are worth a lot to us! You can still help us, for example spread the word to your gamer friends as you said. This will also help a lot! Thanks and have a nice day. (going back to crunch mode)
