Happy Easter! I, uh… made you something…

I got a solid start on Cloudbase Prime’s reactor fueling gameplay this weekend. I was hoping to actually get a sizable chunk of a level done, but at least I got a lot of the technical challenges out of the way and did a (hopefully amusing) story bit.

That explanation of the walking reactor platform is booooring sounding, though. I’ll have to rerecord that.

Sketch-painted a scene from Cloudbase Prime’s energy harvest gameplay so my brain’d get to work on it.

Well that was about thirty more leaves than I could stand. This is a very large tree that the player will be tasked with powering and eventually climbing. Its cyan “blossoms” launch you extremely high, so it shouldn’t be too painful of a task.

The leaves are the same width as the rest of the hex terrain in the game (~2m), to give you an idea of the scale.

Had an unproductive night, so I drew a lot of spirals while listening to Sufjan Stevens. Such is my way.

After wrapping up the sound work, I’m calling Cloudbase Prime’s walker mech done (for now)! Hooray! That… took longer than I wanted it to. I’m likin’ it, though, and I can definitely work faster. Had some lazy days in there.

Lazy days are awesome.

Admittedly haven’t been progressing as fast as I’d hoped, but I buckled down and got homing missiles lookin’ pretty nice before headin’ out for some weekly shenanigans.

Homing missiles now explode, damaging the player. They’re also visible through walls thanks to the goofy lil’ alert exclamation points I draw over them at all times.

Some test footage of Cloudbase Prime’s very unfinished walker mech movement code. I’m quite pleased with it so far.

Super Robot Space Fight! has been submitted to OUYA for approval! Given that the OUYA’s official launch date is… tomorrow, the reviewers are probably pretty busy and it may take a few extra days to get through the system. Hopefully you’ll be able to jump around on planetoids and laser your friends in the face within a week or so.

I got some friends to take the 4 player versus and co-op modes through their paces this weekend and came away with a page full of improvements and bug fixes to make. The most important of those was to take advantage of the latest OUYA Unity plugin’s new control input. It’s much faster than it was before now.

This list is twenty items long… that was a tiring weekend.

After CREATE: one more distraction, and then back to Cloudbase Prime.
Welp, SUPER ROBOT SPACE FIGHT! didn’t make it into the CREATE finals. I’m mighty tempted to just drop it and lock down all of my home dev time for Cloudbase Prime. It’s been a good eight months since 7DFPS and I’ve probably managed to spend about three months on Cloudbase Prime. Help Daniel, Hellbear 2000, Ludum Dare 25, getting an OUYA dev kit and working on CREATE… it’s been a busy time.
I can’t particularly justify this decision. I’m going to keep working on SUPER ROBOT SPACE FIGHT!. It’ll probably be less ambitious now, but my ass will still be plenty busted getting this out by the OUYA’s April launch.
Then I’ll work on Cloudbase Prime again. I hope.
