Friday Update #237

Unread postby Golden Girl » Sat Jun 17, 2017 3:23 am

This week, we’ve been doing some more programming work on our powers system to tidy up the code and get the basic framework into a set-up that will give us a more organized set-up to the system.

This is part of a general process to make sure that the coding for all of our systems are as standardized as possible, using some of the built-in properties of the HeroEngine, although these tend to be templates aimed at creating typical MMO systems, the very fact that they’re aimed at a traditional MMO design means that they’re not always suitable for us to use for our designs, which are shaped by comic books rather than being a standard fantasy MMO design with a comic book paint job slapped over the top of it.

The downside to this is that it adds extra levels of complexity to the development process, and it takes more time to create systems with the uniquely large scope that we need them to have in order to be able to support all the gameplay aspects that are required in a true story-driven comic book game.


Have a heroic/villainous weekend!
