As I have mentioned earlier today in a previous post, I was testing some animation programing today and the testing was a success!  Hoorah! I have tried replacing a particle sprite with an animated particle sprite, because I believe that this was the hardest one to replace and since I managed to replace this one, I guess I will be able to replace just about any other one later, if I so desire. I've recoreded a little video of the test, so you can see for yourself.

Basic structure complete!

Today I have finally finished the basic structure of the game. The game now has all 30 (contentless) levels and menus that the player can maneuver through. Also, the game is able to save the players game for all 30 levels. Now that this is finished I can dedicate my time to making more interesting stuff. For example, today I have decided to play around with sprite sheets for a bit and see to it that I will know how to implement animation into my game when I get my hands on some art. I'm planing to have an animated background and perhaps animated particles (the ones that fly out of the centre). After this I will probably start implementing game features and when that is done I can start designing the levels. I'm very excited but I also realise that there is a long way to go before I'm able to finish this project. Stay tuned!

Back to work

After a very long period of doing exclusively school work, I'm back to developing Blue Core. I will begin adding new features and improving the game structure right after I finish writing this, so you can expect new updates to follow soon!

New Planet enhanced

As I have said in the "second soundtrack" post, what you listened to, was an early version of the soundtrack New Planet. Brian enhanced it a lot since then and if you visit the link again you can hear the new version. If you're too lazy to move your mouse 3 inches down the screen, here is the link again: New Planet

First of all! Happy new year to you all and congrats on surviving the Apocalypse (again)! I hope you also survived that excessive alcohol consumption.
