Third Party Ninjas Developer Vlog #1 April 10, 2012

Posted by Jesse in : Game Development , trackback

I’m trying something new. I’m a big fan of game developer videos on youtube like Indie Chatter and Wolfire’s Overgrowth development videos so I decided to start making my own.

As you can tell, I’ve changed directions again. I wasn’t really happy with any of the control schemes I came up with for platformers on iOS, so I’m taking a break from that and instead targeting PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and Playstation Vita. (If the PS Suite gets access to PS3 as rumors suggest, then we’d go there too. That would make me very happy.)

It’s not in the video, but I’ve got jumping controls in, and it feels a lot better to me than what I had in Bluebones’ Curse. It’s fun to just run and jump around, which is a good sign.

We’re nine weeks away from this years Dream Build Play deadline. I know we won’t have a finished game by the deadline, but I think it should still be pretty sweet by then, and I’d really like to compete again this year.
