June Dev update

Good news, everyone! Another package in the Gameplay Subsystem is complete, moving on to the next one. Some statistics about the current state of the code, in case someone's interested: 4883 lines of code in 127 source files, and growing :).

And, as usual, have this class diagram of the completed package... this time with slightly more detail ;).

Dev. diary, May 2014.

Heyo, a brief update from the developer. Due to personal reasons, there weren't any updates for a while, sorry for that. But things are getting up to speed again, as we start to re-design and re-implement the real guts of the game, the game logic itself. As for a consolation, take this new, shinier version of the package design:

Music and stuff

Vincenzo, composer of 10minSS soundtrack teamed up with his good friend NecroPolo and they released a new, 6 track EP called Bleep and Destroy. It contains 8bit chiptune bleeps, heavy guitar riffs, synthesizer sounds and love for oldschool computers.

And it's not just a music album, we created a playable, oldschool point-and-click version as well.

March, 2014. Dear Diary.

Status report from programmer's side:
The development is progressing smoothly. A new class hierarchy came from the software architect's table: the Effect abstract class, which holds a central mechanism in the game, and will enable modders to implement unique special abilities and effects. We hope that the creative community will enhance the game with exciting mods, which we encourage with clear and extendable design.

Another news from audio department:
Soundtrack will be extended with more tracks to make you happy and relaxed during exploring deep space. Of course, additional action elements will be added when some nasty fight happen. Be prepared.

ps: We hope you are not tired of boring screens with code and squares. So this time we made the usual picture colorful and shiny.

February report

During the last month, yet another module's code has been finalized, so now the whole configuration subsystem is finished! But no time to relax yet, there's still a whole lot of work to be done, but the final game will worth the time spent waiting :)
Stay tuned.

(next time we might be able to share some screenshots as well :) )

Happy New Year!

The Goblin Lunatics team wish you a very happy new year!

Quick status update:
In the last month, another module has been finished. The code consists 1879 lines of code in 48 source files at the moment. We expect some more exciting news soon with screenshots and maybe more :)
Be prepared.

Code, code, code, update

Here's a small update on the progress.
The coding is proceeding smoothly, although with a bit of delay. A module package has just been finished, now moving on to the next. Still no shiny screenshot, we are working on the business logic, for it to be as flexible as possible (and open for modding :) ).
But as usual, you get another UML diagram from the software architect's table:
