Hey there, fellow adventure fanatics! Bet you're surprised to see this back at the first page of threads, if you even remember this little game.
Well, as a veteran forumite/lurker, I know better than to necropost without a good purpose. I'm stopping by here again to let you all know that this game has not died. It's been alive and well the whole time. Well, save for the fact that I haven't had a lot of time to work on it when school started again last year. I did manage to squeeze in a few hours for MBTK
every now and then though, so I thought I'd let you all in on what's been going on.
Most of the work done on this project since last summer was in the form of polishing the dialogue and tinkering with existing backgrounds to make them look prettier. Aside from that, the only proper update the game received was a side walk cycle for detective Francis, which you might've already seen if you follow my updates on Twitter or my website. Here it is, for anyone who hasn't seen it yet!
Since a few weeks back however, I've managed to get more proper work done on MBTK
, like rendering the new backgrounds for more of the scenes, redrawing the walkables, hotspots and whatnot accordingly, since I've tinkered with the render camera for the scenes as well.
To prove that this is just not vaporware-talk, here's a couple of screens of familiar scenes, and some render previews of some of the more recent scenes.
A-and a final bonus, a frame-peek at Gabe's walk cycle, which I started today/tonight:
That's all for now, hope you all enjoyed the update!
