Today I’ve mostly been animating things.. (click the skull he only looks good in motion, haha)

Meet Skull jerk. (He’s really going to be a pain, by design..) and flappy door. Most of my updating is going to be piecemeal little things like this.. I think I’m aiming for monthly progress videos? That way there’ll always be a substantial enough amount of stuff to show, in theory. ?

Hahhahaha.. I assume you've all been keeping up to date with Scorpion engine's thread so here's me experimenting with it's new copper support..

I'll obviously not use it this.. intensely. this is just for fun..

Also first look at the slowly evolving statusbar.

Just to illustrate how freaking rad the copper support in Scorpion is already..

Why on earth didn't amiga games do this back in the day? Im only aware of AGA and OCS/ECS versions, not like, a universal version that uses the full power of both!

at Earok!

This is the same .exe with zero adjustments on my end, running on an A3000 profile and an A1200 one..

I haven't made any cloud tiles (these "clouds" are recycled from my caves!) as I wasn't expecting copper yet, but I think it's great how much depth copper effects can add to a scene. Without it my exteriors looked a bit flat.

Will the music for the game be some sort of spooky Halloween type?

Ooh a music question! Short answer: largely.

Needlessly long answer I’m going the turrican route of a track per level, so a lot of it will be spooky, but some of the levels planned for later in the game are way spookier than the opening few so I don’t want to start too spooky? Got to build up to it for maximum effect. I hope, as a whole, it’s musically castlevania/ghosts n ghouls-ish, so.. kiiind of spooky in context, but also atmospheric/adventure-y.. The earliest tracks are supposed to convey that.

So far the only music I’ve (partially?) composed specifically for this is like some chiptune goth two-step thing.. [ Show youtube player ] - this is when you’re way underground. The track immediately proceeding it will be way jauntier.

I haven’t fully decided on a style for the overall “sound font” (I don’t know the real term!) of the music but Toni Galvez reached out with some great suggestions and sample sets.. I think I’m maybe combining very tiny chip samples and megadrive samples, but depends how I go with the md ones, and if I run out of chip ram after all the nonsense I’m adding.

I also have the entire st-xx sample set from aminet so, literal thousands of samples, so I’m going to immerse myself in that. Music is part of the process I’m looking forward to most, as I have no idea what’ll happen. (Worst case scenario I give up and hand the job off to someone else, but probably not!)

Those are excellent suggestions and there will probably be a bit of that sort of vibe some of the time.

Yes, definitely looking forward to hearing what the musical style of this ends up being. And yes, the Copper effects are quite nice

Actually, after let it simmer on my brain soup for the night, would suggest you to mix the Danny Elfman thing with a comedy horror movie of the 50 like The Munsters so to have a gothic style Rock and Roll that should fit the modern environment (and be more manageable for trackers) ^^

Thanks.


One thing I haven't mentioned here is any of the little clips ive uploaded lately, here, twitter.. etc. They're now all performance on an unexpanded A1200. So I'm still not sure exactly what the final performance will be like but it doesn't seem like base A1200/no fastram is out of the question for very nice performance. Might maybe chug in boss fights, but hell, lots of games did! I might still recommend fastram by the time I'm done but I'm very happy where things seem to be heading.


I've spent the last couple of days cleaning up and improving beetle and slime logic and jeeez. I see why so many games just had creatures go left and right now.
