Hey y'allz, it's been a while since I've posted an update, so here it goes!

1. Super Chibi Knight Ice Castle Update Released!

Since it's taking a long time to finish the game, I'm trying to make a bigger deal out of incremental updates as I go and posting them on Steam Early Access.

This one was fun cuz I fashioned a "poor-man's shader" for Flash to have a cool ice-reflection effect on icy surfaces. The level also has nifty dynamic snow (each individual flake is under my control). All of this made possible in large part by Tony (The-Exp)'s expert optimization help. I use the snow control for some cool surprises in the final boss battle.

2. Super Chibi Knight Jungle Level under-way:

I struggled with the question of whether I should bother including water pools and water physics in the jungle level because it would be a one-off gameplay thing and require research and core-engine tweaking (read as TIME) and I didn't want to delay the game even more. Eventually I just said "screw it" and decided to put in the water. It'll make the game more fun and I think it's worth a slight delay to include it.

It was pretty fun researching 2-D water physics and getting them working in AS3, here are some progress vids:

AS3 WATER PHYSICS:

Final result is that I'm MORE EXCITED to work on this jungle level. Getting re-invigorated is a nice side-effect to doing research into new stuff.


3. Livestreaming

I did a couple livestreams of Super Chibi Knight development last week, and they were quite fun. Biggest benefit is that I work a lot harder/faster/more efficiently when someone is watching. I think I'll keep doing them just because of that!

Here are the links to the archives on YouTube (I apologize in advance for the bg music on some of these):
