The first "mission" involves saving a stranded tribe. Since this intends to ease the player into the concept, it's pretty simple and straightforward.

Also a look at the rewards of such a mission, a Blood Brother to assign, and the start of the Tribehome.

I can't decide how I should approach my #gamedev #indiedev -

1. Finish up ALL MY CLASS PREP ASAP so that I can spend the rest of my semester just on grading/class and then lots of (hopefully) free time for gamedev,

OR

2. Get good at doing a little gamedev every week, even though my brain has a really hard time with inertia and transitioning.

Am I incorrect for thinking that #1 is an okay strategy? The way I get work done is in LONG STRETCHES where I'm focused for HOURS...

Proud to announce the release of playdate-luacats! It super-powers VSCode for Playdate Lua development, enabling static analysis, auto-complete and drastically improves Github Copilot predictions too!

I converted the Playdate API to a machine readable format (LuaCATS), manually defined types for ~2000 values and now VSCode (via sumneko.lua extension) can detect errors and offer suggestions while you code.

Give it a whirl!

Ooooft, this took some doing!

Exported my heightmap, used it to rebuild the terrain in Blender and chop the river bed out, then had to add the bridge in to Blender too and painstakingly align the low poly terrain copy to the bridge vertices to create a mesh that lines up properly for Godot to build a navmesh from...

It works! A navmesh that crosses the bridge but otherwise ignores the water 😀

A bay area in a stylized game world. Each ”tip” of the bay is a long row of cliff walls extending from inland, like two prongs of a fork. Both walls are facing the same direction. Patches of forest. Fog. A road leads to one tip of one bay, where there’s a town.
A reddish plateau in a stylized game world. The plateau overlooks foggier lowlands. A road leads down from the plateau, into a town, and splits in two roads towards the horizon. Patches of forest, more in the lowlands.

☀️ Saturday morning #GameDev update!

There are so many things in games that players won't notice, but will definitely feel if they're wrong. So I get to spend a lot of time finding those elements (like the UI transitions I wrote about before) and polishing them.

Playing your game and feeling things flowing, bouncing and moving correctly is so satisfying! A game can be fairly simple, but when these elements are fine-tuned, it can seem much more impressive.

I've been really down since the whole unity thing. I was working really fast... but it totally derailed me. I know they can't be trusted for future projects... but what can I do now? I really prefer building worlds in unreal, but I'm not sure if I trust them either... And for my purposes, godot isn't there yet (I'm not a programmer. I do music, pixel art, scripting, and writing). So I've been kinda messing around in all the engines... without any clear direction. Anyone else end up like this? Here's some shots from each engine.

#100DaysOfGameDev Day 6. I imported the butterfly into #Godot today and sat it in a window. I need to learn the workflow for importing models into Godot as it doesn't seem very straight forward. For instance I first couldn't get the animation to loop because I had to check some advanced options on import. Also, currently the material settings are mostly read-only. I need to mess with that a bit so I can tweak textures and shadows. #GameDev #IndieDev #IndieGameDev #IndieGames #Blender3d #Godot4

It has been a very productive week so far. I am having a *lot* of fun polishing UI and finding myriad ways to make our core gameplay scenes better and funnier.

It's always amazing how a game can seem like complete pants until you refine all those little things a player can't pinpoint but will absolutely feel — and then it all starts to come together.

After all this time, I'm finally seeing the light!

Realised characters didn’t look where they were going. Now they do, and go back to idly glancing around after stopping.

(Making a 2D character ”look” at things in a 3D world is a bit of a mindbender, but I hope the way it works here makes good enough sense.)

I realized today that when I lost Twitter, I also lost a lot of the cool indie game devs I was following there (and the updates on their games). And that totally sucks, because I really love to play indie games. Apparently Twitter was my main source for discovering them (sheesh).

Below is a pretty big list of games (with links to them!) that I'm looking forward to. There are SO MANY games on my Steam wishlist that are still being worked on and upcoming (some of these are on itch also, and some have alphas, betas, and demos, I've noted which).

Some of these games are definitely coming later this year, and fingers crossed for maybe full releases of the rest in 2024?

Here's the links!

And this was actually made with Kolibri itself. One tap and you have the SwiftUI code for such an animation. It took me maybe 10 mins to make it using SF Symbols and pre-made animations in Kolibri.

big helpful gamedev resource 🤯
The Engine Database: https://enginesdatabase.com
a big database of game development engines all conveniently in one place.
this seems like the end all when it comes to keeping track of alternatives, and it’s a resource you can easily share too!
(got shared with me just now and i’m over the moon it exists)

I took part in #PyWeek this year and managed to make a simple 3D game with #PyScript and #ThreeJS.

This technology is quite something, it runs at 120 FPS in Chrome at 4K... while the game logic is in #Python.

I wrote a few words on my experience here: https://pyweek.org/d/7804/

A short video of a playthrough of the game. It's flying through a dark tunnel with obstacles that you avoid by pivoting within the tube.

Living With Ghosts is now out on Itch!

💙 https://ladyicepaw.itch.io/ghosts

It's a short visual novel game about grief, love and ghost encounters. A playthrough takes around 10 to 20 minutes, and there are free builds for Windows, Linux, Mac and Android. 🌼

The cover image of the game. Close-up portrait of Blossom at night. Her face is being cupped by a ghostly hand as a tear runs down her cheek.
Screenshot of Blossom sitting up in bed at night, looking out of the window. The narration says "Of course she recognized the lullaby. She had heard it many times when she was a child."
