Weekly Update: December 22, 2023

A quick update this week.

I spent most of this past week continuing to work on late-game content, specifically working on one feature for a new enemy. This is a pretty common pattern: I conceive of a new feature/attack/mechanic/etc, and then spend a half a day implementing an initial version of it to verify that it can work and be fun. Then I spend another 2-3 days iterating on it: tweaking how it works, creating VFX and shaders to communicate to the player what is happening, creating the game scenario(s) where the player encounters it, etc.

Apart from that I also worked on:

  • Reading, investigating and responding to player feedback, bug reports and issues
  • Writing late game dialogues and missions
  • Profiling of some high-intensity combat scenarios to identify performance bottlenecks.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Until next week,
Kevin
