Rinksmanship: Shuffle Breaker Dev Blog

21 08 2014

So I’ve been reworking the design of the rink in Shuffle Breaker. Right now I haven’t put it into the game again but here’s a couple quick previews in the renderer…

I’ve redone the UV mapping because it was a bit dodgy beforehand, and I also reworked the design of the goals. In addition, everything is now completely UV mapped so I will be able to use actual materials instead of just solid colors if I so desire.

Hopefully I’ll have this dropped into the game in the next few days.

Pardon the Cobwebs: Shuffle Breaker Dev Blog

11 08 2014

So it’s been a while, now that I’m no longer working on a side project at the moment I’m back at work on Shuffle Breaker. Not much to show fully yet except for a couple major changes (click for bigger):

ShuffleBreaker_Beta_R3 screen 1 ShuffleBreaker_Beta_R3 screen 2 ShuffleBreaker_Beta_R3 screen 3

Both 1 and 2-player versions of the game are now going to be vertical. In addition I added some shadowing/outlines to some of the in-game text so it shows up better against the table. Granted because of this it’s become clear some changes need to be made, like the green blocks need to be a bit more vibrant I feel. Also, although you can’t see it, I have sped up the pucks to make for a faster game, and made it so more blocks can be created on the field. This last change also came with moving the paddles all the way to just in front of the goals, which also necessitated the perspective change.

I’m still working on a few more things, like the possible introduction of powerups, but I’m getting close to having this game complete. i’m not sure if I’ll be making a mobile version anytime soon but I am planning to at least get a finished version of this game up on Kongregate.





Wood Flooring and Paneling Texture Pack now available on the Unity Asset Store

6 08 2014

After my nearly month-long break to work on a small project, I finally finished and submitted the Wood Flooring and Paneling Texture Pack I was working on to put up on the Unity Asset Store. Today I got an email saying that they had accepted the package and now it’s up on the store for all to see and purchase. I’m rather excited about this, even if nobody buys it.┬áIt still feels so weird to realize that I’ve released something now even though that was the whole point of this little project.

The package contains six textures, all with normal and specular mapping, as well as a sample scene showing how they can all work together.

If you want to check it out, click here for the Asset Store link. It’s only $2 and I think that’s well worth it for the time I put into it. Hopefully I’ll be able to make more texture packs of other materials as well!
