Camera following the player !

The goal is to be able to see above/below when you are on high grounds so you can anticipate traps and monsters.

And to keep the cam low when you are on the ground in order to not waste space with the bottom of the scene.

What do you think ? Is the cam moving too fast ? How do you do it in your own games ?

Hello Smoot ! Thank you for your comment :) We do have a devlog on itch.io at this link and my old one that is now archived. I post the same content on all the forums however :)

 

 

Even in death your enemies can still hurt you !

Once killed the medusa will burst into pieces. If one of the tentacles is touched, it will inflict terrible pain, forcing the player to start everything again !

What do you think about the new animation ?

We finished all animations from 3/5 of the monsters from the Denial level ! We are very proud of our progress on the first stage of grief 😀

 

Here is some gameplay with the monsters that will be in your way to healing 😈

We are now working on the attacks from the boss. Thomas is making some very nice spritesheets that we will soon share with you 🤩

Do you think you will be able to dodge it ?

Thomas is currently drawing all the animations from the boss. Next time we will try to show you how it looks ingame !

Here is Thomas’ drawing process for the Reaper🎨

All animations from Dolus are made with Procreate🖌️

 

 

We import the animations to Unity as spritesheets. We then add an emission map and a normal map to the sprites to give them bloom and some depth thanks to the lights 💡🔦

 

What software do you use to draw your characters ?

The Denial Knight will make your world crumble away ! Nothing will be left but the Truth.

 

What do you think about the animation finally added in the game ? With all the lights and the particles it is coming to life !

This is only one of the three attacks the Denial Knight will throw at the player. As you go on, the fight will become more and more difficult.

What do you think about this thunderbolt particle effect ? It will be a futur trap for another level of grief 🤫

 

It is still a work in progress but I like the way it moves 😀

🌊 Water simulation 🌊

After working on lightning, I am now working on water that will be implemented in another level of Grief !

Pretty cool, right ?

 

Later on I will add some effects and change the texture of the water so it looks even more realistic !

Do you like the blackhole effect of the projectile ? It will go way faster and I'll add particles when it will hit the

ground

Jump jump 🦘

Final attack from our first boss ! It is a sweep attack where the player will have to jump to avoid to be hit in the face ;(

The boss is almost complete now ! We only need to make the animations from the boss taking damages and dying.
