When can we expect to see some screenies and info on your website ?

I'm yet to see the game.
Remember what Echoes PC looks like?  Well it's identical lol.  Yeah I'll upload a couple of images Smiley

More health then usual?
Nope. Smiley

Is your ship AI controlled?
And nope Smiley  Although I wish I could code AI like that.

As I mentioned earlier in the blog, I just used one of my existing debug tools to help me out.  Nothing particularly clever.  Duck!

Some screenies.  I've just added links as they are all native 1280 x 720 shots.

Oh wow.

Those screenies look really impressive.

And yeh, asteroid belt is a broken link for me too.   Roll Eyes

Classic mode looks brilliant.  The screeny captures the look and feel of the original whilst mainting that echoes look.  And i know it'll play as good as it looks too.

Meteor storm just looks mad.   Shocked  in a good way of course.

Love the Hud and new Font used in the regular echoes screenies.
Also the colored player bullets look great too.

Looks like you've  got some new explosion images in there as well.

I also like the individual on screen scores.

All in all, judging from the screenies, Echoes+ looks to be a great update.

And i know you've put alot of work into it and it shows.


Getting an itchy trigger finger now.   Grin

Not bad.  Smiley Just had one of my regular hospital appointments this morning so I'll probably be too wrecked to do anything for a couple of days, but there isn't a lot more I can do anyway.  I just need the music and I can submit it for Creators Club playtest and Peer Review.

Elsewhere I've done a rough cut for the general video (listen to me the movie director  Tongue) so another quick spell on that and all the vids will be finished.  After that I just have a website page to prepare and that's it.  BunnyMonkey!

This delay before releasing Echoes+ is killing me.  Not because I'm desperate to get it out there, although obviously I am, but because it's giving me too much time to think about what to write next.   BunnyMonkey!

Generally straight after one game finishes I'll just pick whichever new one of my list I fancy on that day and that will be my new project.  With this delay I've changed my mind over what to do next a million times.

I'd still like to do mono as it's a game I've wanted to finish for a long long time, but as I've said before I'm not sure now is a good idea to do yet another twin stick shmup.

And then I look at the other idea and how much extra level design and game engine work they will need and realise I can write mono with the engine I already have and very little level design work.  And I doubt there will be a time when we don't have a continual flood of new twin stick shooters so delaying it might be pointless anyway.

So today I'm swaying towards mono again.  Someone please talk me out of it  BunnyMonkey!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh............

I'd love to, but I can't. If its easier for you to get to work on Mono then it i to start on this secret project (Duo, or Tension) Then it seems to make sense to work on Mono.

Either way though, your the boss! Which idea do you want to make happen?

Working on something completely new might be more interesting for me, but I know mono gameplay works (or I hope it does lol) and I know I'll do it eventually so if not now then we'll just be having this conversation again after the next game...and then the next....until I finally do it.

Hmm, I'm almost talking myself into doing it now.  Tongue
