Hello again. It is that lovely time where we again show off some of our first game, This Is My Quest. If you haven’t been following up to this point, we have shown off characters and tiles. If you thought we were just making a simple puzzle game, this post might surprise you. We’re going on an adventure!
I won’t completely spoil the game, suffice to say you will be adventuring across unique levels including (but not limited to!) Spanish plains, caves, and through the streets of Old Madrid. We decided to put together a basic flythrough of our Old Madrid level. Note: This is a work in progress, yadda yadda yadda.
How do we make a level like this? Well, we actually lay it out in numerous layers that can scroll at different speeds with various, seamless art assets. This level (so far) consists of six different layers and twenty-seven pieces of art. For example, here is one of the pieces used on the city wall.
We have over five pieces of wall like this that we use. This allows us to add some variation to the level and avoid a bland, repetitive background.
Right now we have six levels being made, each with a unique look and feel. I can’t wait to get this thing into people’s hands. It’s going to be a blast!
See you, Space Cowboy.
