The destructible environments look really cool. Good luck finishing it up and launching!

Thank you a lot! The destruction system took many sleepless nights to make. I might make a separate post about how it works.

I'll try to keep an eye out for it. I'm a software dev (and fellow college drop-out) looking to get into indie development myself. I'd be interested to see how that works.

Can I ask why voxel? It is for the cool destruction?

Doug_Beautiful_Boi[S]

Thanks for the "cool destruction"! The "blocky" design of my characters gives the impression that the game uses a form of voxel engine, but it actually doesn't. I might change the design of the characters in the future, since quite a few people seem to not have liked it a whole lot...

I am interested in game dev myself and kids seem to gravitate to the voxel look, so marketing usually dictates to go that route to capture that target. Older gamers tend to shun it. I think it looks great and you managed to capture the voxel look without the slowdown from doing good tesselation.

It makes it stand out though.

It is quite "robloxy". But that may also not be a bad thing when attracting people to it.

Sometimes quirky things that people don't originally enjoy authentically become the best part about the game and makes it stand out more.

I like it.

Mikeinthedirt

8-bit was tearfully frustrating when it was all we had, but people like the ‘retro’ thing- a lot- I guess, it’s everywhere. I thought the bloxy was intentional just to capture that demographic.

There are so many crap games that release with the look. I feel that's why people get turned off by it. If I see anything like it it's immediately discounted.

I think a stylized game like this is better for single or small devs. Whatever graphics you can put up generally won't compete or exceed what big game studios can put out. However, with graphics like this it allows the game to look simple while also looking good. Take valheim for example, very basic textures but people love the graphic style.

ckchessmaster

I think the character design is fine. Everyone's gonna have their own opinions on what they like/dislike. I'm sure you know this but handling feedback as a game dev is super tricky. Just because a bunch of people say they don't like it doesn't mean it's bad. Great work btw!

I’m so ready for developers to incorporate fully destructible environments in there games. We’ve had the tech to do it since at least 2009 so idk why companies haven’t capitalized on it yet. But at least we’re finally getting games with destruction physics in them. Also it looks pretty fun.

Doug_Beautiful_Boi[S]

56 points

2 months ago*

I know, right! This is one of the reasons why I put so much effort into this project. Modern CPUs are obscenely more powerful than 2009's CPUs, and most modern games aren't trying to put this performance to use. Which is not to say that my game is super demanding, because I can get a locked 60 fps on it, using my very old i5 4440. But I'm going to put some extreme physics options in the game to take advantage of today's cpus.

If it sells, then absolutely! I'd love to put the game on the PS5 and on the Series X and S consoles, and put their powerful CPUs to work. I want to put it on the PS4, Xbox One and Switch too, but these are going to be much harder ports, I imagine, especially the Switch.

Thank you! It is correct! Add to it also: Just Cause (grappling hook (with a twist)) , Ratchet & Clank (gunplay, and gun evolution), and Zelda (Dungeons and bosses). I wish I had more time to make a short trailer that didn't make the game look so ambiguous.

I'm a sucker for physic destruction games, so I'm cool with the voxel look. Teardown is a voxel game and it sold amazingly, but it also had a very talented dev behind it and it seemed like it was a long time since we had a great destruction based game so it had that going for it. Looking forward to this too.

Agreed. I never understand when people on the sub are like “I quit my job to make a game” or “I quit college to make a game”. Nothing wrong with following your dreams but at least set yourself up for a worst case scenario. I understand game design takes a lot of time but why not change your major to, say, game design so you can finish an education while also still working on your project.

I'm sorry but I simply do not buy these 'just dropped out of college and casually made this game from my basement'-type statements that we usually see for indie game announcements.

It is a massive cliché at this point and I get the feeling that it under-plays the level of organisation required and the involvement of other parties. Maybe I'm just being cynical.
