Kokoh Trails: Leonardo's Memory Episode 1 Finally Up!

 Hi everyone! In my last blog post I said that I would upload a demo of "kokoh Trails Leonardo's Memory", my very first unity game project. I said that I would upload everything that I have built so far and then begin to focus on my new game project and take a break from the kokoh trails project. Well, after looking at the demo I was putting together for my first project, I have realized that it is very boring. So instead I decided to finish everything in the first part of my game. I created the boss battle and the parts for after the boss battle.

So, this is no longer a demo, it is a final build of the very first part of Kokoh Trails: Leonardo's Memory. I decided that im going to build each part of my game separately. So I am going to continue working on my Kokoh Trails project as well as my second game project at the same time. Its not a good idea to work on both at them at the same time because I am a solo dev and it is a lot of work for one person, so I am going to switch back and fourth between the two.

About Episodes:
For kokoh Trails Leonardo's Memory I am going to create each episode and release it separately instead of just working on one huge game. I have just finished episode one and now episode one of kokoh Trails Leonardo's memory is finally up. I hope you enjoy the game. I would like some feed back on the game to.
The game is defiantly not perfect. The textures are kind of crappy and the animations aren't to well done.

Any way here is a screen shot of "A Samer Khatib game" (You will see this screen in all my games)

Heres a screen shot of the main menu for episode one

And here is the very first Episode of "Kokoh Trails: Leonardo's Memory"
hope you enjoy it!

Episode 2 Coming soon!

I made a development thread on unity forums:

New video of Leonardo's Memory and Demo coming soon

     It has been a long time since I last updated my blog but I am here once again. *audience clap in background* ahh yes thank you thank you. Anyway I have just posted a new video of "Kokoh Trails : Leonardo's Memory", my very first unity game project (or first game project ever). In my last blog post I said that I was abandoning the project for a while and might or might not finish working on it. Also, I said that I started a new game project. Anyway, since I have been gone I was working on my new game project the whole time. I have made very good progress on it so far and it has come much further in development than Kokoh Trails has. I have already built the first two levels in my new game project and am about start working on the third level. I have planned and organized my new game project much better than I have for my first one. For Kokoh Trails, I was kind of just making everything at random and did not organize anything of my project stuff like scripts and models and what goes into what level, etc. So I guess I just became overwhelmed with what to do. Luckily this is not the case in my new game project. Everything is organized and I am planning on what to do for each level before I go in and start building it. So development has been coming along very nicely. Anyway this post is not about my new game project. I will be posting news and finally some screens and all the details about my new game project really soon though. Next blog post.
   Anyway, this blog is for kokoh trails. I have just put up a new video for kokoh trails up showing off final build of the very first level. Check it out.

Also, I plan on putting up a web demo of everything I have created for my kokoh Trails game project. I would really like to know what people think of it so far. So just some feed back would be nice, even though there really isn't much to do in the parts of the game I have created so far. Once again, I am not sure if I will ever go back and finish this game. I have also put up images of some of the 3d models I made for this game on my deviantart page. Right now I am fully focused my new game project. Maybe after finishing that I will go back to working on my first project. As for the web player; I am very impressed with it. I know unity can do a lot of things but I have never made a web player build until recently. Games run great in unity's web player and  it just makes me want to make even more games because there is no download required.
So plus one for the unity game engine for having an option to build in web players. To test out the web player, I created a very small basic game to see how well it works. Its nothing special at all. You play as a ball and collide with boxes to destroy them. There is no sound, awsome 3d models or cool texturing or anything but if interested you can check that out over here, bam!

just use the arrow keys to move around. If you fall of the stage, then refresh the page because I never added a respawn thing, so you would just fall forever.

So I really like the web player and hope to make all my games in it in the future. Like I said earlier, I will post a demo build of all the stuff I created so far in my kokoh trails project in the web player. After that, there will be no more updates on that project for a while and I will start posting updates on my new project. I look forward to it. Thanks for reading!

Off Topic:
I drew a picture of something completely random; I have no idea what it is. So I decided that I will make this creature thing my mascot. Here is the official Snowconesolid video game icon from now on.
