I’ve just returned from a game event in Hong Kong where everyone is busy making their games out of… pixels. How quaint. This is how we do it:

Why has Cletus lost his head?

Yes, this is Anthony’s studio. In his garage.

So Anthony and Mal have been fooling around with scanning clay models into 3d. Without a gazillion cameras, which we can’t afford, it turns out to be quite an arduous process. We’re getting there, gradually.

With 3d scanned models, we can then start to play with players choosing between stylish hats…

… and beards. There are a lot more of these on our Discord. Totally Anthony’s fault.

Where’s my darn hat?

(the alien stole it)

What else has been going on? Ah yes, Stu decided Cletus liked sports and added a team ball game to Clodhoppers. This worked great, other than until we have 3d characters working it’s almost impossible to know who is on your team.

We’re now focusing on getting the full game loop finished, including multiple game modes and all the basic menus needed to let anyone run multiplayer games.

As always, drop by Discord to try builds, find out more, or join our chats about classic Japanese games and Amstrad CPC mods.

Bye for now, Alex.

P.S. If you’ve read this far you get an extra treat - one of our other titles, Eufloria RPG, is ready for a few game tests. Ping Terry on Discord and he’ll sneak you a build. Eufloria doesn’t use traditional pixel art either, we do like making life hard for ourselves.
