Graphics News #19

June 21st, 2012 by Jetrel

A showcase of a whole mess of things we’ve been working on for the dungeon in the coming update. The dungeon has doubled in size, and best of all, the dungeon level-tree is now non-linear (an improvement I’m hoping to eventually have on most chapters of the game).

There are a wealth of graphical improvements; the back-wall in the dungeon now has actual edges, and windows, so we can crumble it away and reveal background art. Background art was also something we were lacking before; we now have two different parallax backgrounds where we previously had none. The whole dungeon has also been quietly switched to a perspective matching the rest of the game (a subtle change we began around 1.2 which we feel looks much better – the only holdout remaining is the seaside interiors which I’ll redo later).

Last but not least, we also have a bunch of different palettes in the dungeon which help set the mood in different areas.

    So, is there going to be a new version released anytime soon?

    Yeah, we’re winding down the to-do list for 1.3. (It’s across multiple posts in that forum thread, not just the first one.)

    Sounds great !
    I whish it was a hack-n-slash, a Frogatto-vania ^_^

    Hate to bust your hopes there, but it’s just non-linear. Not randomly generated. I wish, and that’s not out of the question, but not now.

    It’s non-linear in that there are two different paths that lead to the final boss now, not just one. There are also a few dead-end level tracks that lead through a bunch of challenges to some treasure.

    I dig those palettes, especially the moon one.
