Will To Survive
15 Kasım - Liquidoodle
It's been a while since the last update, everything is progressing nicely but a lot of what has been done this past month hasn't been visual enough to show to you, until now.
New Environment Concept
Over the last couple of weeks I've been working on a proof of concept for the way the environment is now going to look and work. You can see this below. It's not an 100% perfect representation as there will be cars, objects, lamp posts and more road markings in the final game but it should give you a good idea of the direction we are heading.
The previous set of environment art was created using tiled blocks, this technique worked well but came with a few problems and it was these problems that caused me to re-think the strategy behind how it would work and ultimately look. The new technique we'll be using for mapping the environment will use tiled squares for the floor elements as before but for the building elements rather than using tiled blocks we'll now be using longer cut up strips, I've made an example of this below.
The new method of mapping means that the environment art can now look more detailed and can allow me to do more interesting things with buildings such as destroying them. Previously doing this with small tiled elements would have been a chore. This new method will also speed up the creation of the artwork as well as shortening the amount of time it takes to create the final in game map files. Another benefit is that there will now be less overdraw as buildings aren't getting drawn as lots of individual tiles layered over each other; This will greatly benefit the Android and iOS versions of the game which were previously running a tad slow. The one down side is that I've decided to cap the height of the buildings, this doesn't mean that we can't increase the height later down the line however and to be honest it looks pretty good regardless.
Hopefully you all agree that this looks much better than before.
Video Diary #2
All being well in the next couple of weeks I'll be doing another video diary regarding some of the new features, watch this space.
That's all for this update.

I received some amazing news today and figured I would share it with you all, Will To Survive has been successfully green lit!
A massive thanks to everyone who has voted, favourited, followed and commented. We could not have done this without your help!

Well hello there everybody!
Things have been busy and going well with the game since the last update. I've cleaned up the last few bits of code ready for Dan as well as doing spots of project organisation and planning but for the most part I've been getting to grips with a new tool called Spine.
Spine is a wonderful 2D skeletal animation tool and I've been wanting to play with it for a while as it will really help do some more advanced things with both the player and alien artwork especially in terms of the new combat mechanic which we will be starting soon. I've uploaded a short development diary for you to check out.
The artwork isn't by any means final but it's already looking much smoother and higher quality than before. It also uses far less texture memory and is far easier for me to create, meaning I can spend more time polishing and adding more content.
Meanwhile Dan has been getting to grips with the code and has currently been putting in some rather swish path finding then he's going to be vastly improving the collision detection so that Will no longer gets caught up on corners and walls so easily. Hopefully we can upload a video of that next week.
Where To Next
The next stage of development will be to look at getting the new combat mechanic working, I've already got a battle plan written and will be starting on the artwork this weekend. Once we are ploughing through that I dare say there will be much more videos and updates for you to see... it's quite exciting!
We are currently doing really well on Steam, we're number 26 but were recently at position 24. If Valve continue to Greenlight projects at the rate that they are presently going that means we stand a very strong chance of getting green lit in the next batch. That's only going to happen if we stay pretty high up in the ranks however so any help you can give by sharing this Greenlight page with friends, family and colleagues would be greatly appreciated... LETS DO THIS! :D
That's all for now, thanks for reading and supporting!

Hello ladies & gentlemen, apologies for the lack of updates over the past two weeks; Everything has been rather busy and chaotic plus there wasn't really much in the way of news worthy things to write.
I'm now done with cleaning up the code for the game and it's many libraries so it's nice and organised ready for some help on that front, I'm much happier with it now and have even added the ability to change resolution and toggle full screen display with some keyboard short-cuts which I had been meaning to get around to for a while.
I've also overhauled and fixed the weird issues I was having with collision. In the process I've made some handy debug display stuff to aid me diagnosing problems on that front in the future too. Hopefully fixing those issues will mean sorting out the draw order of tiles and objects will be easily fixed now as well.
And lastly I've started getting the new interaction controls to work, it's still early days on this but it'll mean that interacting with the world is much more intuitive. Hopefully I'll be able to put a video up soon to show the new method in action.
New Team Member
I would like to give a warm welcome to Dan Ward (a.k.a. ButtonsZ) who is kindly offering his help on the code side of things. Dan is an old friend of mine who has recently graduated university with a first (clever sod) and is a programming ninja. Dan will be helping out on the game in his spare time when he's not working which will really help speed things up. Welcome on board Dan!
Where To Next
So the plan for October is to mainly work on the exploration controls, improving collision and adding path finding which should make the game much more fun when you are wandering about the world. We'll also be looking into further developing the map system, giving the ability to exit and enter buildings, move between building floors and also adding in a sewer system which will be an important way to get around safely. One thing we also want to look into getting working is the ability to use skeletal based artwork created using a tool called Spine. This will vastly improve the animation quality of the player and enemies but not only that it will also mean we can do some rather cool new things. Definitely go and check out the program here: http://esotericsoftware.com/
Ok, back to work I go!

Very brief update to inform you all that we are now in the top 100 games on Greenlight since that last batch of 25 got green lit, in fact we are currently sat at #81 which is really awesome news.
Massive thanks to everyone for voting yes and following!
