Small Props Update

Small update this week, didn't have much time but I added a few "props" to the game. Chest, crate, torch and urns, they have either a loot or break action. Looking to do inventory next sprint and add loot to these props.

Starting Fresh

Last year I started to work on a 2d roguelike after some time with it I inevitability got busy with other things. A few weeks ago, I figured I would give it another go and start over. I got rid of most of the code and redesigned how I was going a turn-based game in Unity. In the previous version I had some issues with the AI running inside of Update() causing a lot of wasted frames. I am going to continue using the Oryx Tiny Dungeon set and see if I can make my money back. I am still using Roguesharp but only really for the map generation. I also switched from SpriteTile to the new Unity TileMap system, but I am considering switching back as the TileMap is broken on WebGL at the moment. The Unity tilemap system also seems to really slow down with maps greater than 100x100.

Working to catch up to where I was before, I have implemented most of the core gameplay loop. So, there is a main menu, simple character selection, basic combat, death. This time around I built out spreadsheets with all the data in it for easier editing and loading. Much easier to design formulas for RPG statistics in Excel. Nothing is really balanced yet and I have that planned for a future sprint. Working towards finishing up all of the core mechanics like inventory, loot and other gameplay features. I haven't thought of a good name yet, and I am still working out a story. That's all for now, back to work.

New Project

For the last week or so I have been prototyping a 2d roguelike in Unity3D. The sprites are from the Oryx Tiny Dungeon set. I am using Roguesharp for a lot of the internal roguelike bits. It has really allowed me to just focus on prototyping everything out in Unity3D really fast. Above is a video of the progress. Below are some newer screenshots of a in game map I am working on. The red dots are enemy locations for debugging. All of the UI elements are temporary and just for debugging purposes.

First melee animation

My first attempt at some melee animation. You cannot see the mouse in the gif, but the sword goes in the direction of where the mouse was clicked.

New Sprites

I decided that the Oryx sprite pack probably wasn't going to be very viable commercially, due to the massive saturation of use. So I tried my hand at crafting my own characters. Still a lot of work to make new sprites for everything but I think the characters and monsters are the more important things to change. I added some new tile graphics to try and create a 3/4 perspective look to more or less match the character. I am fairly happy with this for the first revision.
