With the remaining three hours I had left in the day, I implemented location markers, and package pickup and drop off with little progress bars. Looking forward to doing some more UI work and getting some art in today!
Don't feel like I have time to fuss with optimising GIF sizes, so here's a link to it on Twitter where I can upload bigger files (sorry -_- ) https://twitter.com/ValiantCheese/status/1434661313549008896
Got some sweet music from @lclhstr We're looking at breaking this up into layers and doing something interesting with adding/removing parts dynamically. Exciting! :D
The jam's been extended by another 12 hours, but I've uploaded builds based on what I had at the deadline (minus fixing a font issue and updating credits). Going to take a break to work on a cover image, but you can have a play if you want \o/ https://cheeseness.itch.io/cloud-courier
Just pushed up an update with time to spare before the jam ends. Difficulty tweaks, graphics improvements, and lots of misc fixes :)
Spent some of today working on a post-jam update, which adds nice menu transitions, puts indicators for collected packages on the HUD, and improves controls/balancing a little https://cheeseness.itch.io/cloud-courier/devlog/292414/v01-0-changelog
Here's a little art dump from @Albuffalo1@twitter.com, whose art is what really brought the project to life
Here's a postmortem on the work @lclhstr , @Albuffalo1@twitter.com , and myself did on Cloud Courier for the #stopwaitingforgodot jam, discussing our processes and reflecting on the project's outcomes #gamedev #indiedev https://cheeseness.itch.io/cloud-courier/devlog/293817/cloud-courier-postmortem
And if you're hungry for more after that (who could blame you), here's another 4,700 words recounting my work with absolutely no screenshots, photos, drawings, or gifs to break things up https://www.patreon.com/posts/56142070
A patch with that change and a few more quality-of-life improvements is now up! Enjoy :) https://cheeseness.itch.io/cloud-courier/devlog/301317/v01-1-changelog
@Cheeseness Yes!! It's my favorite idea from my abandoned projects folder! Love the concept of delivering packages via hot air balloon to floating villages! https://linuxrocks.online/@eviloatmeal/104597186717374098
