Developers Post 20: More UI and Streams

Welcome to the 20th Developers Post, this week has been increasingly busy especially with trying something new. Along with the fact I made a journey with my parents to see some puppies, which were very (and I mean very) adorable.

 On to game dev related things, firstly I've started live streaming the development of Escape From Infinity 2D. It's been a bit of a bumpy start but live streaming it is keeping me on track to get the project completed and released. I'm exporting each one to my youtube channel if you miss the live stream itself and  want to watch it.

  I've got some sort of a schedule which is the following:

  • Monday to Wednesday: 7:00pm - 9:00pm (GMT)
  • Friday: 7:00pm - 10:00pm (GMT)
  • Saturday: Will depend on what I'm doing but probably about 6:00pm until about 10:00pm or 11:00pm.

 The nights will most likely be me coding what ever my current project is currently it will be Escape From Infinity, but I'll also be live streaming things like Ludum Dare and other game jams that I participate in. I may also do some gaming on the channel, though I may create a seperate twitch or youtube channel for that one.

 Moving on to Escape From Infinity development, I've mainly been finishing up the menu UI and making a start on the custom ship feature. As you'll be able to see from the live streams I've gone through a few iterations of how the UI and how a custom ship would work, though even as I write this I'm thinking of ways that would make it easier to add custom content in the future.

To finish up for the night we're at the theme of the week, it's called 'Savage Triumph' by Flexstyle, OA and Nutritious. 

The song itself can be found on the page along with the rest of the album with is an awesome listen.

Anyway that's it from me for this week, have a brilliant week and I'll be streaming through out the week and doing my normal Developers Post next sunday.
