For the alpha construct, we targeted on including juice (visible and sound), making modifications based mostly on suggestions on earlier builds, and finalizing the options we needed within the sport. A big a part of this iteration was redesigning our ranges (and offering clearer steerage). We made modifications to ranges to scale back confusion in gamers: routes had been made to be extra clear, button immediate tutorial minimized and repositioned, and an total repair to the aesthetics (lacking tiles or background, sharper gentle borders, and so on.). Another main aim was so as to add extra juice, as was prominently highlighted in playtest suggestions. To this finish, we added an number of audio results, from an ambient cave BGM to sound results for explosions and turbines. We additionally added extra visible components, largely in the way in which of the menu UI and scene transitions. In phrases of modifications in basic core mechanics, we refined our checkpoint system. We observed that the gameplay was a bit irritating when the participant dies after they spend a very long time in our sport. The checkpoint system helps us to higher restrict the problem of your entire sport. We have additionally launched toxic gasoline, which we’re nonetheless exploring in the way it can add to the general expertise when enjoying by way of a degree.
For the following iteration (our beta construct), we plan to proceed including to the general juice within the sport, largely in additional audio and visible results. We additionally plan to refine the most important options that we added on this construct: lava and poison gasoline. These will hopefully give as higher obstacles from which to construct up extra complicated sport ranges, of which might be a bigger focus as we are actually growing with the belief that the present construct is characteristic full. Additional targets of refinement embody ropes, dynamite, and destroyables. And lastly, we goal to incorporate some plot scenes to offer a bit of extra taste to the sport, each within the type of in-game scenes and a trailer.
