v.017 - New Art, 2D Lights and Animator FSM


This month was tough for me. There were some changes to my day job. Suffice to say that I am exhausted. Nevertheless, I managed to get some work done.

New Forest and Castle Tilesets

Over the past month, I've been working with a talented artist on new tilesets. He is working on the two other areas of the game: the forest and the Castle. It took some iterations, but I am excited about the results.



Added 2D Lights

I've been thinking of ways to add variety to the game without new enemies. Since the first area is a cave, I wanted to make "dark" levels. With lower visibility, you get a completely different level. It's still a work-in-progress, but I can already see a lot of o value from it.


Created new FSM system using the animator

I decided to ditch my old FSM system in favor of a new one. The main reason was that my old one was hard to debug. I had nothing visual to see what state an object was in beside the inspector. So I hacked the animator and built an FSM system with it. It ended up taking less time than I thought it would.

I have not been as productive as I wanted, but I have to keep pushing through.
