This week was really exciting on the “new parts into the game” front. We now have pulleys for ropes. That may not sound like much, but it is actually really hard to get them working properly with everything we are able to do with ropes. They also should give the same results if they are run on a Mac or a PC, which is awesome. Also, now that pulleys are out of the way, Kevin can start rocking on adding more (much simpler) parts into the game. Other than pulleys, everything else has been really tidying everything up to try and get it all presentable for our Alpha. Our Steam page is looking really nice, and everything is starting to feel a lot more real.
For this week’s showcase video, I decided to really go for it. This one is about twice the size of the one that I made last week, so you are in for a real treat. There is so much going on in this one that you have to watch it a few times to really appreciate everything that happens in it. I tried to really make use of the new pulleys, and I made some pretty cool contraptions involving ropes and blimps. I hope you all enjoy “Toast Teamwork”. In this, Tim and his twin brother Tom work together to make some toast.
