One Day Away

I've been busy. I've been rebuilding a new level progression into the old editor so that we can have anything great and playable prepared by the time TooManyGames begins tomorrow afternoon.

Here's the schedule: Tonight, choose up my old friend Mark from the airport and then force him to play through the level develop to make certain it is lengthy sufficient to get 20-30 minutes out of.

Tomorrow morning, head out just before 9 am and make the trek to mysterious Philadelphia, exactly where the founding fathers wrote the very first video game in 1776.

We've redone some key elements of the game here. Maybe most noticeably above is that grass no longer grows everywhere- now, it signifies areas where trees can be planted and grown. If the columns, stones, and grass in the foreground isn't sufficient to tip the player off that "Hey! Appear! Listen!" then hopefully the grass going will do the trick.

Second, you can see a floating platform. That ought to give you some type of an concept about what is taking place right here. We're moving away from the more slow and dramatic sort of pacing that you saw in earlier videos. We've upped the speed ~50% and added in some far more standard platforming. Long story brief, Sprout's Tale is acquiring a platformer-esque makeover.

You are going to also see that the above image shows grass in the foreground. "How could this be, you ask?! Every little thing is dead!" Properly, yes. That was old Sprout. This is New Sprout!

Okay, just kidding. But fundamentally, this version is more or much less a game that takes place entirely within a person's (read: mine) memory. Each and every puzzle represents a distinct memory and occasion, every single unique object has it really is genuine life counter-piece. I'm not certain how other folks get with stuff like this, but I enjoy dissecting items like this and I hope players will get some entertainment out of it as well.

There is a lot of factors left to add in, but we're pretty considerably out of time now. To tide you more than, here's a brief video displaying off the new cave terrain. I wish I could give you something far more, but I want to maintain some stuff on the proverbial "dl" until at least Monday.
