Project 2 – Dev Diary 2

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been doing a lot of research and experiments for a potential new game. That last developer diary focused on a procedural map generator.

Project 2 – Dev Diary 1

April 17, 2022

With the development of Reflex practically complete and the release of the Android (and possibly Amazon Fire App) version within the next few weeks I decided to start prototyping what could be my next game.

Another very busy week of development. This time focused on polishing the game and getting things ready for the full release.

Reflex – Dev Diary 75

March 6, 2022

It has been a very busy few days of development for Reflex. I have finished polishing the outro sequence and added in a short post-credits scene (it doesn’t hint at a sequel), and I’m entering the final stages of the game. Firstly, following on from last weekend all the tutorials have been recreated as animated… [Read More]
