September 10th: Podcast! And some screenshots.

Posted on September 11, 2013, by Nertea.

Alex and I were recently on Space Game Junkie's podcast, where we talked about SVSH and a bunch of other sci-fi things. I highly recommend giving it a listen!

In addition, Alex has put up a new devlog entry with some of the things we talked about in the podcast featured as screenshots. They are, in general, quite nice!

August 25th - Development Blog - AI Development

Posted on August 26, 2013, by Nertea.

For AI in the beta version, we've made many improvements from the demo. Everything is new, everything is better and you'll notice the result when playing the game. To do this, I've combined the two common approaches to AI in doing this - a finite state machine (FSM) and behaviour trees. I was explaining the system to Alex today and he suggested I write up a post on it, so I did! You can read it over at the devlog. Because it's a whole bunch o' words, I also included some nice pictures.

June 29th: Development Blog - How to Design a Starship Part II

Posted on June 30, 2013, by Nertea.

We've just put together another blog entry - more video, continuing last week's piece. In this, Alex will talk about his work with sound effects, and I get a chance to talk about special effects and putting ships ingame. Enjoy!

June 21st: Development Blog - How to Design a Starship Part I

Posted on June 21, 2013, by Nertea.

Despite the fact that Calgary is flooded, we're still hard at work!

 

Check out the newest development blog entry - it's a video, containing an excellent narrated timelapse of Alex designing, modeling and texturing a starship. I have personally watched it 3 times, because I enjoy it so much.

June 14th - Two development blogs!

Posted on June 15, 2013, by Nertea.

It seems that I've been somewhat remiss with keeping all the various sites posted of our devlog updates. We've actually had two since the last post - one by me and another by Alex. They cover two topics that include lots of pretty pictures, particularly the Space Terrain entry. Of course, the Special Effects one isn't too shabby either... I recommend having a look at both.

For the upcoming week, stick around. I hear that Alex has some kind of spaceship design video planned, which I haven't seen yet, but have been assured that it's very cool.
