G’day everyone, we are wrapping up our fortnightly sprint and have some new exciting things to show off. Let’s get stuck in!
Fleshing out and expanding our combat was the main focus for this sprint. As you may have seen last update, we have now added in our version of a “Rocket Launcher”. Although ours fires Gamma Orbs, it still fills that vital position of giblet deliverer.
And now lets see it in action!
“But wait, what about Quad damage?” I hear you type furiously…
Be sure to check it out on YouTube as our Sound Designer has been hard at work bringing punch to the gun.
We’ve also continued to further our arsenal in new and creative ways. Introducing our Rust gun. Finding the enemy moves with too much swiftness? Well you’re now in luck! Blast them with an unrelenting stream of salt water, rusting up their joints and slowing them down! It can also be used in game with environmental puzzles, more on that in further updates!
We even have it coded and in game, with only a few more gamma bugs to squash.
Also in the prototype stage is our new Magno-tronic (Still working on a name) tool.
Just when you thought stairs were safe… introducing our new enemy! The Gamma Slapper!!!
All our other bots so far have been easily defeated by a sharp 90 degree menace, known as stairs.
But not this bot! This is our first bot to not have to rely on wheels to get around, the first of its kind with new Nuclear Powered Gamma legs. This big bot’s main goal is to keep pressure up on the player. Using his large gamma lightning tentacles, this bot can deal damage from range and can quickly close the distance to the player with a furious leaping attack that sends out a shock wave of gamma lightning.Our next sprint will focus on animating him and tightening up his gameplay loop.
Wrapping up this update, we take a quick gamma-gander over at our concept art. We’ve been exploring the world of Bears In Space and looking at how structures are built, defining a style with a keen focus on a modular approach, being able to build out variations quickly is extremely important for our small team size.
Thanks for reading, stay tuned for when we complete our next sprint, which will mostly aim to fix and polish some gameplay elements in need of some care.
