I have invented a new food: soupie!
It is soup-pie! It's what happens when you try to make a pie, and it turns out super gooey and falls apart and you need a spoon to eat it! Soupie! Said like sue-pie. Not soupy - oh just let me eat my sad apple pie
Kind of odd question here; there's no easy way to ask this, but...
Given the context you can put different costumes on your party (beachwear, Halloween-esq, PJs, etc) would you...take the final boss of a game seriously if she showed up wearing a matching costume as your party?
This was in my notebook, and I need to know if past-me was onto something, or if I was sleep-deprived.
Hey, Cythera is posting; wonder what it's about...
That's right! Final boss AI! Newest update: she sees how many actions she has left per turn and acts accordingly. Low HP with 1 action left? Activate passive with auto-res. Lots of actions left? Buff + attack!
Very productive game dev day! Got a large map finished (it looks amazing if I do say so myself), started another map, and got the best (translation: worst, very mean, nasty twist) passives for my final boss working!
Seriously though, those passives were a massive pain to get functioning Since they proc under...unique...circumstances.
I had some yummy fish & chips today, and am in a very good mood. So I decided to share the feeling - that's right, Cythera gave PLAYER skills - plural! - a BUFF today!
But it's back to mapping now, so the enemy buffs will soon follow I'm afraid
Well, Ark Ascended launched today. I'll see ya'll in a few days when my PC catches fire and I've long since forgotten my name.
Schoolwork? Game dev? Productive, normal life? Pssh, what's that? I got dinos to tame!
Seriously, though. Game dev paused while I burn out my graphics card. Ha...ha
It's another quiet day at work. My boss made the mistake of asking how my game is going.
Now my coworkers are hiding from me after I went on a spiel about game design, balancing, and how to keep players engaged even as you kill their party again and again... :3
I did math for my poor, brave friend and turns out, the ultimate skill of my game's final boss? The base damage clocks in around 23,500. Max-level HP for tankiest viable target is 4,584. Isn't that exciting?!
Don't worry, I'm not that cruel. There are absolutely ways to survive this attack, and it isn't the first time it's shown in game
I-I just find numbers nifty
I feel there is a poetic justice in the final boss of a game destroying the dev's sanity during the development phase, and more than likely destroying a player's team during the actual game We're all gonna suffer together, okay?
Gonna repost this since it's currently tied 1-1! We've seen Strength with our adventurers and Charisma with our merchants, so which DnD stat would you like to see in the next NPC for my advent calendar: Constitution or Wisdom?
And a bonus game: if you can guess what type of character each stat will represent, I’ll make your suggested sprite for Christmas! First person to get it wins, so make your guess!
Steam is going to be forcing me to update my desktop OS for Mac. It's a good thing that my laptop is Windows otherwise some of my work and a lot of game save files for 32-bit games would become unusable for a while.
