So I’ve been working on some performance improvements for Crystalline Bliss and adding new levels. Hopefully this weekend I will complete the improvements to the computer players.
Next week I will have an updated version with some of these levels posted.
But some of them will be Steam only as they can only unlocked via completing achievements.
The ultimate plan is there will be a set of levels that are dimensions from Dream Space Infinite and it will eventually tie into a story mode. While outside of that there will be other levels that are just cool worlds.
Comes in three other colors.
Also recently I was pulled into another project from Matt at Bitreel. I am going to be helping a team build an AR/VR game for Niantic’s new platform 8th wall using Babylon. It will be fun. Hopefully next year as well I will be able to show off a business/application I am building with Babylon for the wood working industry.
Thanks again everyone!
Your update are always stunning !!!
Good luck on your new gig
Woah, y’all working with Niantic! That’s super cool! I love the Ether Ocean level, it’s like a jellyfish forest!
Yep and to be clear Matt asked me to come help with their project but yes I am doing that.
I’ve been busy the last few weeks getting the game polished up even more and adding some cool new mechanics.
I made a new skybox for all the levels. It is just a simple noise shader but it does really add a lot of life to them.
The game now has a manual you can view. The gameplay has gotten more complex and I’ve got a few requests to add one.
One of the cool features I added was something called effects. Effects change aspects of the crystal sets that are generated. For example one effect will make a set fall faster and another one will turn all the crystals in the set white.
Lastly for game mechanics I added “loot” crystals which contain helpful items such as breakers. Breakers are an item you can obtain and use during the match. If you use a breaker it will clear all events and effects for yourself.
The loot crystals will have more use in the future.
Achievements and Unlockable Levels
So in the online version and Steam version of the game you can complete achievements to unlock levels. There is a section in the menu to read all about the achievements and what you have to do to complete them.
