8/28/2020 Dev Log Update
Hi folks. 20200 just gets more exciting every day doesn't it? I thought I'd just give all of you an update of what we have been working on here in our collective disaster shelters here at Fun Freighter Games.
Sales for Decal King are still bad :(
Not much more to say, but we will be putting it on discount when we release our next project.
For the pas month, Chris and I have been spending a lot of time on what we refer to internally as "The Buoyancy Asset." This Unity Package will allow developers to easily simulate water for their games via Unity's shadergraph capabilities. In addition, the package will simulate flotation for Game Objects such a boats, buoys, giant rubber duckies, etc.
Now if 2020 has taught us anything, its that if anything can go wrong it will go wrong, so I won't commit to a specific date yet, but I'd be surprised if we didn't get it out within September. Taking in feedback we've received from marketing Decal King, we have decided to do a launch sale for the Buoyancy Asset. So, if you buy either of our Unity Packages (The Buoyancy Asset or Decal King) when we launch the Buoyancy Asset you should receive a steep discount. If you want to be notified when it launches sign up for our mailing list on our homepage here.
I promise we will have picked a cooler name than "The Buoyancy Asset" before launch.
Since our little adventure on the Unity Asset Store didn't go super well, we have decided to divert more of our efforts to our passion project "Scrap Seas." The end goal for Scrap Seas is an engaging rogue-like where you pilot your ship through a colorful post-apocalyptic wasteland to take down the formidable robot empire. We have been hard at work adding content to the game. Our first goal is to get a playable demo out so we can start collecting feedback from players. It's very early in the development and we are a very small operation, so any feedback we get will have a lot of weight with us. Once again, if you would like to be notified when the demo becomes available sign up for our mailing list on our homepage here.
