Oh, and here’s the final journal, too!
This, we finished last week. It, and the entire Clue system, are in-game and working. Backstage pass’ers don’t have an updated build with this yet… but only because we’re working on the PAX demo now. We want that done before pushing an updated build. It’ll use Clues, of course.
Here’s how the final revolver looks
Woof, it’s been a while since I posted an image. Let’s fix that! Here’s how the final revolver looks, in all its in-game glory. Neat eh?
Final UI layout, placeholder art
This is, roughly, how the Clues UI will ultimately look. I went with a button-based page flip instead of a scroll because that works better for gamepad, and just felt more… in-world’y, than a scrolling pane.
First finished world art in-game
How cool is this, right? The dump LOOKS LIKE A DUMP! We’re finally getting Ellory and Will’s work into the game proper, and it’s looking amazing. (click for embiggen, it’s a big pic)
Poot Powered Doors
Just made switch-controlled doors, so I needed programmer art for useable toggle switches, and the toilet was convenient. Hmmm.
Push zones are pushy
The tech that runs conveyor belts isn’t special-cased, it can do a lot of other stuff. Like, for instance, cancel gravity and act like a cool fan pusher! (they can also push you in horizontal “push beams”, etc – very cool stuff)
Conveyor belts are conveying
Conveyor belts are one of the newer bits to go into Hot Tin Roof. They do… exactly what you’d expect.
Push zones are cooler
Even though they both use the same tech, there’s more interesting stuff you can do with a push zone. Here, I’m using it as a “thermal” above a fire, but they can just as easily point horizontally, at an angle, down even – they’re pretty flexible. You can push/pull yourself around inside of them by […]
Conveyor belts are pretty cool
I’m pretty glad with this tech. Both this and the push zones are all the same thing, under the hood.
