new project: Moonlight Mountains - early preview

     A couple weeks ago I have finally started work on my next full unity game project. woooooohh! :)

But before I get into that, I just wanted to point out that I have also gave my blog a pretty big update. Besides my awsome new blog design I have created in the background, you will now notice new link tabs on the top of the blog page under the big image that says "Game Dev blog". Finally I have organized everything into separate sections especially my games. I have added tabs that have sections such as "contact" and "about", etc but the major one is the "Games" tab, which takes you to a page that has all my game projects organized from most recent to oldest that can be played right here on the blog. So anyway I hope my blog is now more robust. :)

And now back on the main topic. As I said earlier I have started work on my next game. It will be called "Moonlight Mountains" as you can see in the above image.

I have had lots of time to work on the project recently and I can say that I have a pretty good amount done. So perhaps in the near future I will have a demo up. However, there is still a lot of work to be done. This game project will also be my most complex one up to date. Originally I was planning on making it a short quick game but I just keep getting more and more ideas.

In the upcoming blog post I will talk about it in more detail but for now I have put together a short video of a prototype I have put together for the game, it tests out various things such as AI and the simple health system. check it out:

This prototype stage was mainly just for testing my very simple enemy AI. I have already finished creating the first two real levels of the game and currently working on stage three. Im planning on releasing the first three stages as the demo as soon as I finish them. From this video the game doesn't really seem like much at the moment but in the future I will post some more about it. Also, two of the characters in my background image for my blog design are going to be characters in this game project.

Anyway that is about all for tonight.
See ya next time!
