Time to checkout the Game Design Fundamentals by the MIT :) #gamer #gamedesigner #future #awesome #fun #unitedkingdom #united #letsmakegames #mit #rulesofplay :)

🎮 Enough fixes, optimizing, and firefighting. Time for desktop/console controller support, and mobile text translation (localization).

👨‍💻 still trucking along with moving game config data out of xml and into data classes. Finished the skater actions this morning, plowing through the camera profiles now

🛠 Plugging away at migrating game configuration data out of xml and into data classes. This should speed up our game initialization time.

📷 Todd has started adding post processing effects to the desktop/console version. Some depth of field tests starting in the skateshop. Pretty exciting.

📋 Starting the process of removing our xml data files and transposing the data into c# classes. So, waaay back when the project first started we imagined perhaps using a back end and storing data files on it for all game configuration. We eventually decided against paying for a back end, but the data is still all in external files.
⏳
For the best player experience we'd like to speed up app start time as much as possible, so this is a good place for optimizing. Each xml file has to be loaded, decrypted, then parsed as the app initializes. So, moving the data to be resident in code will bypass all those steps for each system (11 total systems using external xml data files!).
🚽
Sad to see all that work go down the toilet, it was a cool system, but at the end of the day all that matters is the player experience so it's a win.

🚧 Overhauling training for the 4th? time now. Turning it into a sandbox this time without instruction popup interruptions. All 'goals' are active at once, so if you know how to play you can just bang out all the tricks quick to progress. And if you don't know how to play you've got a casual sandbox environment to skate around and figure it out.

📲 Updating the Epic Skater 1 main menu button for Epic Skater 2. The original app just got pulled from Google Play briefly because this button wasn't obvious enough that it was an external link. So we added the Play Store badge for the android version of the button to be extra extra obvious and they re-approved.

❤ Adding "3 lives" system to the console / desktop version of Epic Skater 2 since it will be a premium product and the loop isn't driving players to ad views. Drinks will still work to continue after, but you get 3 free get ups at the start of each run more like any other platformer.

💕 Can't stop firing up Epic Skater 2 desktop test build just to look at it. Early Access might happen really soon. Keyboard and mouse support has been in since the beginning to allow for desktop development so a few more little menu tweaks and we're good to go.
📝
Gamepad support will be the next big step. Gameplay with the gamepad will be a handful, but the most work will be getting all the menus to function with a gamepad. Not rocket science, but every interaction on every screen needs to be reworked and there's a lot of menus.

💻 !! Standalone version working on PC. Epic Skater 2 is this much closer to Steam Early Access. Feels great to play full screen at high resolution on a big monitor.

🍏 !! Standalone version working on Mac !! Charging along here towards Steam Early Access. Had to disable Metal and force OpenGL. Metal has issues I don't feel like digging into. Really want Mac and Linux on Steam as well as PC so this is a big deal. Also, had to shuffle save file path and working data file path. Still just keyboard and mouse, gamepad support will be added during early access.

🔪 Huge teardown in progress for console version of Epic Skater 2. Ripping out all ads, in app purchases, game center, google play games services, system notifications, everything that was only necessary for the mobile platforms is gone. Feels great. A LOT of work still to do, but making progress 😯

🆙 Increasing the sponsor list to 16 since the environment textures live on a 4x4 atlas, and there's been an overwhelmingly positive response to the program. We're really stoked to be able to rep real world skate companies in the game. Our game isn't a skate game by accident, we love it, we skate so combining it all is awesome.
💥
Game developers should be able to relate to the challenges of creating something, ultimately a brand that you're trying to build a community around. So it's a big deal for us to have someone validate what we've been working at by creating that association of trust with what they've been working at.
