BLOG

It's been 4 months now since Halcon and I had built a game from scratch and released it on Steam, I feel proud of this because it's the first time I had done such an accomplishment, inspiring actually to see people purchase my game. I'm glad all the work I've put into my project had brought a great game experience to people. We both go home happy.

I felt like my game needed more to the story, I wanted interaction objects that would hint different item locations and areas to explore. I built a journal system that records the players interactions with specific objects so the player can look back at it for sub quests in the game.

Created powerful items for beating the main temples in the game. achieving all of them would unlock the last area in the game, where you would obtain the most powerful item of them all.

 

I learned more about delegates, Unity Events and Unity Actions and I built the entire UI interface of the shop system.

 

What exactly happens when I drop a person into 3D space? I can set in the inspector what town and if the person acts as a shop.

 

When shopping and depending what town, will bring up a variety of items you can buy.

 

There are 6 slots that are assigned "when talking" immediately in code. It then selects and detects any item I want. The price, a discount, a sale of the week, a special item.

 

This tells the player that this town has this item on sale where the other town has it for full price.

 

Also when you buy the vitality the dialogue changes as if the shop keep recognizes you. During night the shop closes and kicks the player out from of the shop and closes the door.

 

A dialogue message pops and says it opens at 6am. During night time the people that wander around say different things than they would during the day.
