Dog-O Devlog

When I finished Monster RPG 3 in March, I took a bit of time off. I had worked crazy hard to finish it up and needed a break. A month later I started a new project. I have now been working on it for 9 months.

I've got most of the basics in place now. I've got a title screen, settings and main menu (the "boring" stuff,) and the field view in place. The first area of the game is finished, which leads into the really interesting stuff with battles.

This game will have a unique battle system that I can't talk about yet. It won't be the same turn-based battle system as Monster RPG 3, nor will it be a full on action game like Crystal Picnic. That work hasn't started yet though, but hopefully after I finish some art I need to get done this week, it will.

The man gist of the story is your dog, Jellybean, has fallen into a well (see the second clip below) and you need to rescue him. Adventure ensues. The game will be bite-sized like our other recent games, both because I like shorter games and because I'm working solo so it's not possible to create a long epic game of good quality alone.

In this thread, I'll periodically post progress updates on the new game which is entitled Dog-O. Feel free to register on the site and post a comment, or just check in here from time to time. Here are some current clips of the new game to give you an idea of what it looks like.

The most recent task I had was to support Steam Input for controllers. It's working really well and should play nicely on most controllers out of the box by the time the game releases. There is also non-Steam-build controller support which is at feature parity for Android and tvOS builds.

Although it's still early, I'm looking for experienced alpha/beta testers to check out the game during development, so if you have tested games before and this looks interesting, get in touch. That's all I've got for now, but there's a lot more to come, and many existing details will likely be changed. Thanks for reading!
