BGP DevLog #174 (Where's The Game?)

Posted 2 Weeks Ago at 5:23 AM by Yotes (Battle Gem Ponies (Weekly DevLogs!))
Tags delay, fan game


Getting REAL tired of this game not being close to finished. I admit to dying inside just a bit each passing week as I fall behind on the schedule I laid out just because the very first bullet point is the hardest pill to force down.

Battle Gem Ponies DevLog #168 (HUD Crafting)

Posted 4 Weeks Ago at 12:55 AM by Yotes (Battle Gem Ponies (Weekly DevLogs!))



Ignore the garbled text. That is a bug for another day.

Been taking my time making these menus and such, and glad to see that stage of development is finally coming to an end. Chewed hard to figure out some bugs and the most efficient way to make things flow, but I think I've got it now and just need to rinse and repeat...

Release feels so close. It's like the pieces are all in my lap and I just have to follow the instructions to put them together. The final version of Battle Gem Ponies is so clear in my head now that I'm fanboying over it sometimes.

In the last 7 days I charted out exactly how all 360 battle moves will look, I recreated every menu,...
