We were originally using gamesalad to create the app in. It has proven to be really unstable so we are switching to a new engine which actually runs a lot smoother and looks way more polished.
Ill do a post tomorrow with what the new layout looks like!
So the real world has caught up to us which is why we’re not doing 10 posts a day anymore!
We are still working on the app though in between all of our jobs!
Ill post some updated art soon!
Our deadline is fast approaching and we’ve made a decision. We could finish the app as it is by midnight. But if we released it like it is neither of us would be happy with the way it is. We want to turn this weekend project into something polished that people will enjoy. Something that we can be extremely proud of. So we have some things to implement that are going to take longer than we thought was possible.
First, a talent calculator. Everyone has been asking for it and I think it would be an absolutely amazing addition.
Second, more professional looking art. We were going to release the app with my current art and then update the app with better art as we got it. We have decided that if we want people to actually use it then we should wait until we have art that people will actually want to look at.
Also some fun miscellaneous things such as maybe where to find certain ranger pets and the like.
We haven’t abandoned hope, far from it. We’re more excited and confident now than at the beginning.
We will be posting regularly so you guys don’t think we’ve abandoned our aspirations!
Well that’s it, its just me doing the finishing touches before I start on-device testing and optimization.
roughly 11 hours till deadline…Its going to be a close one
I think the lack of sleep is taking it’s toll on us. I feel like I got hit by a train then someone scraped me off the tracks threw me into the street and my remains were then ran over by a semi hauling lumber….. We need encouragement.
We did go to Denny’s though….their coffee is like liquid cocaine.
