YBit Update v0.2


Hello, everyone!

So… lots of updates in this new version of YBit!

I am currently focused on adding content, as I feel the gameplay is working and only needs to be expanded. So, in order to achieve this, I added a new platform type that allows the player to make a double jump in the air but only while he is touching it. Also, I added a lot of new levels (more than a 50% of new levels). Since having a large ammount of levels is one of the priorities for the game, I focused mostly on this.

Others close goals that I am currently working towards are, for example, reaching more people to play the game. So, in order to achieve this, I added a Linux support and I started working in the Joystick support (which is currently working but only during gameplay). Another close goal is to keep adding content to the “plot” of the game. So I added new dialogues that are fixed to the plot and some “random” ones that will appear based on the events.

Finally, I made a few fixes and minor changes of things I wasn’t convinced of. Anyway, there is still a lot of work to be done.

The list of changes:

New

  • Added 14 levels.
  • Added a new platform type.
  • Added joystick support during gameplay.
  • Added Linux Support.
  • Added dialogues.

Changes

  • Changes in the character movement.
  • Changes to dialogues moments.
  • Minor changes in the menu screen.
  • Minor fixes.

Now, about the future goals, this is what I plan to add in the following updates (not all of them in the next one, but hope they are in a near future!):

  • More levels.
  • More platform types.
  • More dialogues.
  • Joystick support during screens.
  • Pause screen.
  • Save and load.
  • Add Mac support.

At least these are the close goals for now.

Thanks for reading and hope you had fun playing the game!
