I haven’t been able to devote as much time to slug chronicles over the past few months as I would have liked, given that I have some updates as to the progress of the game. First, I would like to announce that all future slug chronicle specific update will be posted at http://www.slugchronicles.com , I’ll be sure to post here as well whenever there is some new information. In addition I am no longer using Unity3D for this project. Although Unity did help to get me up and running rather quickly I feel it is to cost prohibitive for me when it comes to deploying on additional platforms I would like to target. Let me explain.
Been working on a bunch of features. In this update I have completed the map generation portion as well as drawing of the individual tiles, I’ve also worked on the code for level loading and character persistence. Please excuse that initial pause, that happened while I was firing up Unity.
Next Up: Placing the player on the map and let him move around.
Next game to be released by Rebel Box will be a space roguelike. I am going for the coffeebreak variety. I am currently planning on the following features.
- Randomly generated loot.
- Level-up/Skill tree
- Randomly generated levels with progressively harder enemies. [It’ll be interesting to see how I translate dungeons into space environments]
- Drop in/ Drop out gameplay mainly designed for mobile.
- Perma-Death that wipes autosaves. (Still debating how this will work).
I always love hearing back from the gaming community and our fans. I received an email this week from someone we’ll call Joan.
“It would be awesome if y’all could develop the classic jumble with awesome graphics or something. The original with four scramble words and arrange them to figure out the picture clue. I have been searching for a similar game like in the newspaper but no luck for androids only iPhones. I would love to play n share it.”
Thanks for the feedback! I am always looking for new game ideas and will take suggestion into account as I work on the road map of game for next year. In the mean time, if anyone out there in the community knows of any game that would hold her over until please let me!
I received a cool email this morning. Seems that Supermarket Scramble is being featured on the Playbook AppStore in the ‘Fun with Food’ section. If you have a playbook you should check it out, we also have Mercenary Scramble available on the Playbook AppStore if that’s more to your liking.
If you decide to buy it, please leave a rating and let us know what you think!
The next title released by Rebel Box will be Galactic Smuggler… Keep your cool as you travel across the galaxy smuggling lords knows what… to and from some of the shadiest characters you have ever met!
