Slowly chipping away at things but really not been feeling well enough to dev at anything approaching an acceptable speed.

[ Show youtube player ] - here’s a boat though.

If anyone was wondering how I did that in scorpion - it’s a platform actor obviously, but it also has melee box along the top on all its animation frames. I have a codeblock for “on melee hit player” on the boat actor that checks if player_x is less or more than actor x, and changes the actor move direction accordingly.. The boat also has a 1second timer repeating that changes the actor’s direction to Up, but because it has an up speed of 0 it stops in place.

The waves are slightly weird in the video too, I put them in the wrong order, oops.

A better look at how boats work once the enemies are around.. And also an example of how snails can be useful for getting to hard to reach areas.

[ Show youtube player ] Decidedly unfinished, and those skulls don't either look good or belong on this level, but..

Shipwreck.. I think I need to slow down the clouds, it legit makes me feel ill.. But I kind of love it anyway, haha.

Really cool effects mixel, nice one.

Love the way you have created the bobbing of the ship via platforms, ties in so nice with the parallax to create the feeling of being sea sick!

Thank you! I’m piling on the effects now!

The whole level is coming along pretty fast from a visuals and monsters perspective.

With that bobbing speed will be nice if you give a barf bag with the game:P maybe slowing it down a bit, if possible?

Haha yup, it's very not-final and you're not the first person to mention that. It's not going to be a long segment of the game and I might well tone it down in various ways once things are more cemented.. I'm in the process of adding a foreground wave too, which i think might make it even worse from a motion sickness perspective.

Edit:

Made it even more nauseating now! Hurrah!

You have some extra RAM to do an attempted grab animation for tentacles if they come close to you?

[ Show youtube player ] This might be mostly finished sea parallax. Really not certain! (Will probably slow it down though)

This version has the best balance so far of being it distracting, not too nauseating, not too bright, not just static.. animating it was..

I’ve been thinking about that, and might.. it’s not so much a ram issue as an implementation and time taken one.. I’ll see how it works gameplay-wise.

Alternatively you can make the tentacles slap him

Right now I've set them to do normal collision damage like almost everything else in the game. I may circle back to them though but I have a lot to plow through.

I'm taking a short break from it to try getting something ready for the art contest. (something that'll also be useful for the game/s though!)

Still alive, between personal stuff and other projects I’ve been slow on and off, but Earok fixed some Scorpion bugs and I fixed a ton of CMO bugs and everything’s back on track. I’ve greatly extended the Swamp1 stage, added at least 4 new enemy types since I’ve shown anything.

Thinking of doing a recent additions roundup video, here’s a funny new part of the swamp in Tiled.

A couple of short clips of recent developments.

[ Show youtube player ] - almost finished this boss fight..

[ Show youtube player ] - And the swamp levels have grown significantly. Very close to completing the swamp, other than its boss section. (Which is planned out already, but will require slightly more complex scripting than any of bosses I’ve used so far!)

Steadily chipping away at everything.

Thanks! It’s great being able to use melee boxes for collisions instead of the collision boxes, it means I can make the octopus spit only hit you when it’s in the foreground, and the tentacles only hit you some of the time, making it a lot more fair. (the tentacles will briefly submerge if they either hit you, or you punch them, so it’ll be a bit more manageable than I make it look here)

I've been contemplating removing the skull o' doom.. When I first added him I hadn't fully established how explorey the levels would get.. Now I know it's more metroid-vania-ish I'm tempted to totally remove the concept of a timer, as he's only a mild annoyance anyway, the amount of pressure players might feel is disproportionate to the amount of damage he can do, so it's kind of a waste of ram just waiting there to appear on every level.. I can repurpose him for a boss fight later or something? ANYWAY.. Undecided.

Anyone have any opinions on irritating timer skull?

Another question I'm asking myself now, in one of my sea-faring levels i need airborne enemies, i was thinking i might use the bats i use later in the game but they're not ideal probably.. Seagulls? Seagulls that poop on you? lol.

Things have been going reasonably steadily but in a totally scattershot way where i inch a lot of levels forward bit by bit. As I'm not planning on another demo right now it means im not really 100%ing completing any level yet.. I'm getting close on a few of them, but the real time consuming thing is creating interesting enemy types, animation and behaviour. I still anticipate accelerating as the process continues, but health and other home issues are slowing me down a bit. I'll have more interesting stuff to show very soon though.

Here's a more up to date game map.. the greener it gets, the closer to completion.. all the pure green stuff is in the demo.. the top left area is incredibly close to completion and the top right maps are very much works in progress..

You can not defeat the skull, right? Keep it in the game, but make it mortal.

And what about flying fish?
