TWTWE the game: progress report

(nixodemus1) #1

So I’ve actually been working on this game a while, but then had to stop for school I recently started up again and realized that I have been quiet for a loooong time, so I thought I would announce what I have so far of the game and what I have planned for the game in the future. Its truly not very much at the moment, tho.

The Way The World Ends (or TWTWE for short) was a very dumb comic I did in highschool and is still going to this day. Its bad, dont bother reading it. However, this was going to be a game based in the same universe as the comic. Its going to be a turn based RPG where all the characters are 2d animated while the enviroments are 3d. hope you enjoy it!

update number 2!

[What has been finished]

-have added a character select screen
-made by blueprintrandom

-can now have all 4 characters on screen at once

-overhauled the UI.
-added a bar for paradox (mana)
-redesigned how the menu works
-new buttons.
-new action gauge

-have added an enemy randomizer

-if randomizer loads in 0 enemies it just ends the battle

-nathan and the unnamed character are completely finished now

-all the programming and extra assets for rebecca are already in place. I just have to animate the actual character herself now

-misty will be the last main character I do before I start working on the rest of the demo

[what needs to be done]

-there is some kind of bug where nathan and the unnamed characters special attacks do now work properly. I cant find anything wrong with the programming, and it doesnt happen often enough for me to be able to figure out exactly whats causing it.

-doing rebecca’s sprites.

-doing the entirity of misty

-making backgrounds for the battles

-fixing up the character select cause that comes with its own problems

-overworld. All of it.

[in other news]

-comic. almost halfway done. no really.

-now have an itch.io page for the game!
will be public after this video is uploaded
does not have a playable game to download. sorry.

ALRIGHT so its been a while. thats my bad. but i got a new update. its a little more boring but explains whats been happening. also the private demo is currently rocking ver. 4.5!

patchnotes:
-lowered the range of the switches so they dont acidentally change after activation
-changed some dungeon pieces to reduce chances of getting stuck via rng
-think i fixed the character select black screen problem
-fixed the flames and teleporter
-made the void under the IDD black
-put a little bit of time after the final cutscene to remind people there are 2 MORE QUESTS
-thanks to oby1 i have figured out how to at least slow down the black boxes
-added a floor tracker
-fixed a glitch in the menu

THE PRIVATE DEMO HAS NOW GONE PUBLIC!

The original plan was that I was not going to show the game off till I made the public demo. which was just chapter 1 of the game but with most of the side quests missing. private demo was a sort of giant proof of concept with the thought process that I can try out a whole bunch of ideas, and get feedback on what people like and what they dont, as well as stomp out most of the huge bugs early. This would, in turn, streamline the process for the rest of the real game cause I already have all the major pieces in place.

This means that other than with close friends, the private demo was never meant to be seen publicly. However, recently in a fit of madness I cast caution to the wind and threw out a download key on my twitter so whoever came across it could play the game. as well as releasing the game on other platforms when I knew for a fact, i would not be able to fix any bugs that came up as a result of that!

So while im just not giving a hoot, im extending the chance to play the private demo to all of you. the private demo is for the first time publicly available, and will last until may 18th. In which case I am bringing it back under the private banner. It’s a mess for sure, but I hope you all enjoy what is there so far and maybe get a good laugh out of some of the bugs you will encounter. There are no rules other than have fun!

i didnt realize till recently but the most recent version of the game shipped with an error. for some reason itch decided to not include very necissary game files, which lead to the game having some very WEIRD AND UNSTABLE glitches. I reuploaded the missing files, so the game should (for the most part) work as intended. sorry for any confusion caused by this.
