Coffee Diary 7/12/20


Hey Exanimates,

This week we managed to get legacy items correctly converted to the new systems, put in the last few minor features to get all the various game screens and game modes working properly and solved the inevitable various new issues that crept up during this last stretch of development and feature completion. We also made a new visual tool for configuring various environment specific settings that previously had to be mostly hard coded or automatic.

We wanted to maintain save game compatibility until we release the arena overhaul, so when you start fresh it will be for good reason. This got pretty complicated with maintaining many deprecated assets and converting items. When we finally do a full wipe we'll be able to purge all the legacy props and start fresh with items, which will allow us to better take advantage of all the new features.

Now we're just consolidating all the updated assets into release libraries etc. and we expect we'll be able to do a test release some time this week. We're excited to finally get the whole visually updated game out there and see what people think.

Have a great week!
-the BM team
