For this week’s development updates, the team is continually tweaking the demo build that will be released for the Steam Game Festival. Some of the key changes are geared towards QOL (Quality of Life) and polish, ensuring that players have as smooth an experience playing the demo as possible.
One of the key updates for this week has been our continued progress on fine-tuning the new map, Redmark One. The map is still in development but we’re hoping to have something playable for you all and available for playtesting soon. Here are a few of the final screenshots from the game for Redmark One.
Overworld and Mission Overview Tweaks
A lot more tweaking has been put into the Mission Overview screens, specifically little QOL changes and polishing, to make it more natural, easier to navigate and understand. In the images below, some nice touches were added to make the animation and UI at the Overworld Missions screen feel more natural.
The Harry Potter Bug
We’ve got an interesting bug that was being fixed in time for the demo release, which the team lovingly referred to as the Harry Potter Bug, AKA Platform 9 3/4s. As the name suggests, it basically allowed our Operatives to walk through walls–which shouldn’t be the case obviously.
See you again next week, Operatives!
