It’s been a bit since I’ve posted an update, so I wanted to bring everyone up to speed on things I am working on!
First off, I’ve been working on finishing the intro cinematic for the story mode. As a one-man developer, it’s taken some doing, but I am really pleased with the results. I’m going to be hiring another composer to create new music for the intro as well. I still have about a week left to do on tuning it, then I can get back to some other important areas.
Next, I’ve been looking into the strange background editor issue. I think I have a fix for this, and will be patching the game soon to hopefully resolve the issue once and for all.
I’m also looking into improving the simulation a bit. Since 0.4.4 my performance enhancements have decreased the quality of the simulation, and I will be tweaking some of them to get it to be more stable.
After this, I’ll be going back to some new level design, and adding a few remaining gameplay elements. Still hoping to finish the game by early 2014! Wish me luck!
