So been a while since I was on here.  So what have I been doing?

Basically since I last posted I have decided to dedicate all my time to making my game Kana Quest. I’ve just been forgetting to upload updates to this blog cos I’m good at the social of the medias. Speaking of the social media, I’ve been trying real hard to get twitter working for me. So if you want more immediate updates on Kana Quest follow me @notdeaddesigner .

So Anyway. Have some images and gifs of Kana Quest’s progress.

Kq4

This one is showing off the new background for Kana Quest. The final game with have a background with the same level of polish for each world.

CuteKanaAllWell for some reason it lets me have this gif. Whatever. This shows of me redesign of the Kana tiles to give them all a bit of personality, as well as a backdrop for the puzzles so its easy to see the puzzles with the new background.

NewLevelLayoutIn this one I have added a new UI above the puzzle to improve visibility, changed the formerly red tiles (non moving tiles) to be stone tiles, and I’ve changed the beat level anim to be more instantaneous.

NewRestartButtonGif

In this one I’ve changed to UI ontop of the puzzle as playtesters wanted a restart button and an undo button.

NewEnglishBacks

In this one I updated the backs of the Kana tiles to match the front. As you can see though the back of the stone tiles still don’t match up. Another big change in this one that might not be immediately noticeable is that I no longer have my pixels bunching and stretching so in other words from here on in we are pixel perfect 😀 😀

TutorialScriptTransitions

This one is showing off my new tutorial system. Some one who goes back to last year might remember that I spent a large amount of time making a tutorial script. I was basically forced to retire that script because it was hella inefficient. This one is way more efficient and elegant. Anyway I’ll have a lot more control over this script that the old one had.

And that’s about it. I will probably do updates once a week on Saturdays from now on and will go a lot more in depth of what I’ve been doing. What I want to do the coming week, problems I’ve been having and how I solved old problems.

Anyway take care all.
