Devlog #7: Community Beta

  • fedellen 

With this came three days of finding all the game breaking bugs and produce a version both abonbon and I were happy with sharing to our community. In addition this week I have began coding together a pretty large achievements system, created some leaderboards on iOS, and we have opened up our Ko-Fi page.

Devlog #6: Relics and Menu Polish

After last week’s never ending hunt for bugs it was time for some new systems to code. I also took the time to completely redesign and condense the pregame selection screens into one all inclusive screen.

Devlog #5: Bug Hunting

We side tracked a bit this week looking for bugs and planning our next project while also doing some turkey related celebrations. Our main goal this week was to introduce Relics into the game but my priorities changed mainly towards some serious bug hunting.

Devlog #4: Tweak and Polish

  • fedellen 

Whenever I lose my thought process or uninspired I’ll often compile a version simply to find one thing to change; countless lingering annoying bugs were solved this week. Every time I’m working in an old behavior I tend to add just a little bit more juice to it, whether it be more particles or making all the things happen at random intervals.

Devlog #3: Marketing Victories

  • fedellen 

The main goal this week was to put on my marketing hat for releasing our Early Reveal Trailer and distributing my announcement press release; both of which I’d mark up as a success. On the development side our goal was to begin implementing sound effects, play test for bugs, and apply some more coding/graphical polish tweaks.
