Development blog #001 for my upcoming game, Project Bullets.

[DEV BLOG #001]


In the past days, I've been working on things that are really boring but are a must for any game, so I can speed up the release of a public demo from the alpha.

Mostly, I've been focusing on user options. For now, I've added resolution selector (which is prone to bug the hell out, testing needed), as well as a shader switch to activate or deactivate the chromatic aberration when shooting, and a screenshake switch because 2 or 3 people out of 20 suggested it (more than 10%) because they were prone to feel dizzy with the effect. I also separated Sound FX and Music in different audio groups, and now you can control volume from each audio group independently, or a master volume (HOW NOVEL!).
I also added a map selector (to select between two maps... Yay!), and even a small beta logo from Madwolf in the main screen, and if you touch it, it directs you to the Facebook page (HOW NOVEL X2!).
On more funny changes, I've added a counter when the map starts, and added a new object, explosive fire barrels, which are a reskin from the already bad sprited explosive barrels, but now with 95% more red and... they do exactly the same but they leave fire on the ground, which damages you if you touch it, adding a little bit of variety.

Also, I made, with a friend, a gameplay video. I've recorded 4 matchs, and this is probably the worst and most boring, but the others were too long. I'll upload one of the long ones, anyway, soon.

If you want, you can find a complete changelog of version 0.0.2 here, but there won't be download link for a few more versions (so what's the point of a changelog? To make me feel better with myself, I suppose)
