Info on what is changing...

Hey guys!

Gearing up for releasing the beta I wanted to talk a bit about what changed on a more technical level.

I guess I'll just jump right in!

The first thing is the game now supports 16:9 aspect ratio natively. To get this to work well we had to reformat some of the games graphics. Often things that you haven't gotten to yet are hidden just out of view in our previous level layouts.

During the process of reformatting the levels we made the choice to build the games world on a grid, much like most other pixel art games.





As you might see, this results in the areas looking a lot cleaner. This always bothered me during development, but when I admitted it to myself I was too far along to do anything about it in MMF2.

How does this change control?

If you think about pokemon, when you press the directional pad Red or Blue walks one grid space over in the direction you selected.

Two Brothers isn't that sort of game though. For action to work, you need a bit more finesse. In the Multi Media Fusion 2 build of Two Brothers Roy moved by the pixel. This ended up feeling a bit messy, and a tad inauthentic.

So in the unity version of the game Roy now moves on quarter grids, much like how Link moved in Zelda A Link to the Past.

I’ll post a video of this in action once youtube finishes processing.



Things to make playing better:
There will now be access to volume controls at any moment in the game.
You can also change control schemes on the fly.
Thankfully this was much easier to handle now that we’re using Unity. MMF2 really isn’t ideal for a game of this size. LESSON LEARNED!


Where we are now:
We’re about two thirds away from completing the new enemy AI. There were 3 basic enemy movement styles in Two Brothers, and now there will be 10+

Each one requires more strategy, and act differently depending on the weapon you are using.

We’re also redesigning the first dungeon in the game. Adding more action elements. We’ve done this to a few of the other dungeons. We worked in reverse.

We’re also overhauling the heroes of color quest to flesh out the story there, as well as to add bosses to the end of each quest.


We’ll be posting more info about when this all comes out shortly! :)

Mac and Linux (and PC) beta version of major update...

Hey guys!

So around the end of January to the middle of February I hope to upload a build of Chromophore (what I'm calling the Unity version of Two Brothers) onto Steam. It will be a Mac Version, a Linux version, and the PC version.

It's not entirely done, so there will still be some issues, and some areas will have to be accessed via a level selector.

After months of hearing the suggestion to just upload what I'm working on as I do it so I can get proper feedback, it finally got into my thick skull to do so.

First week I may put up the engine in the form of a sandbox area, just to get some feedback on the core new engine. Show people how it's shaping up. A week or less after upload larger portions of the game.

I've been doing testing privately and the feedback has been good. I won't talk it up, because that's just stupid.

So, that's the plan. I'll keep you guys updated.
Also going to start a devlog/change log so you can see which advice I'm taking from feedback as I do it etc.

Love
-Ackk

평가

“...The soundtrack for Two Brothers is elaborate and enchanting. It’s a slow burn that’s going to take a long time for you to fully digest, but if you like game soundtracks, I’d be hard pressed to offer you a better one. Full of original content, and drawing from the most memorable games of previous generations, it will give other composers something to aim for when they score their companies next title.”
KBMOD

“Two Brothers is a wonderful retro-inspired game with an interesting concept and solid core gameplay underneath it all so it isn’t just another love letter to the past that offers nothing else but nostalgia.”
Gamecepticon

“Between the great story, amazing music, and fascinating world, I’d definitely recommend players to check out Two Brothers. While there are certainly some problems with the game, there’s a lot here to enjoy you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.”

Two Brothers is an Action Adventure game that features a classic Gameboy aesthetic.
Roy Guarder, inventor, scientist, and philosopher, is on an expedition to discover the origins of life. This quest has brought him to "The Cursed Lands," a stretch of land so dangerous and shrouded in mystery that it hasn't been explored in over 700 years. When Roy finds what he's looking for, he is met with a terrible fate. Roy no longer finds himself a living man. He is greeted with a world of colors he never believed could have existed! One obsession leads to another and Roy begins to walk the line of life and death - sometimes intentionally ending his own life - just so he can see this land of beauty and color again.

But something is strange: Why is Roy the only man who can cross so easily between the worlds of the living and the dead? What has given him this unique ability? How will he reconcile the existence of an afterlife he never believed could even exist?
▪ Explore a vast non-linear world and story with multiple endings, and deep side quests!
▪ Take the game world from black and white 8bit to full color 16bit!

What makes Two Brothers unique:

Two Brothers takes a long hard look at death in video games... when the player is killed in combat or triggers a deadly trap, instead of being greeted a familiar GAMEOVER screen, the player finds himself in what we call the "Afterlife Hub".
This realm of the dead is a colorful and mysterious place where the player can explore, find clues, and interact with characters who have passed on in the games story... sometimes even bringing some of them back from the dead.
When the player wants to return to gameplay, they can jump from the edge of the heavens and get back in to the action and exploration!
This mechanic is vital to the gameplay, as sometimes interacting with the dead is just as important as interacting with the living... this feature often requires the player intentionally ending their session in a game over, just to cross over to the other side.
