Happy Birthday Newts!

As if you hadn’t guessed by now, it is Newts’s 19th birthday today, so I hope you’ll all join me in wishing him a very happy birthday!

bday

Hope you all like the SO screenshot too. Don’t ask about the demo, please ๐Ÿ˜› I’m too busy with uni work to finish it off, but what there is is quite playable. Just ask Newts ๐Ÿ˜›

We’ll keep you posted :)

Brief Demo Updateโ€ฆ

Yeah, so I’ve missed the deadline by a long way ๐Ÿ˜›

I’m currently sorting out the battle menus, as they’re a little bit screwed at the moment. Don’t know how long it will take, but hopefully it won’t be too long. I also have to implement a few enemy attacks and some magic spells.

Aside from all that, I have 2 more maps to finish and a few elements to add to SODA, and then the demo should be ready. I hope. Maybe.

Thanks for sticking with us, and I hope you won’t be let down by the final product :)

Wooops!

Yeah, so we missed the deadline ๐Ÿ˜›

Hopefully it should be out tomorrow, once I get the stupid path-finding to work :)

Sorry!

One day away!

Yep, tomorrow is the big day – Demo 4 of Shining Online will be released to the public before tomorrow is out! To celebrate this, Ty and I are hosting something of a party in #tss, our chatroom, and every SO fan is invited!

The party officially starts at 10pm GMT, but we’ll probably be in there before, so pop in at any time and enjoy the spectacle ๐Ÿ˜›

Full details can be found here, so make sure you know how to get in to get the most out of release day!

So, the calm before the storm…

Keep the faith!

Brief Status Updateโ€ฆ

Only a day to go, so how are things going?

Movement ranges fully implemented.

About to attack the enemy!

Judge for yourself :)

There’s still plenty to do, so I should probably stop posting news and get back to work ๐Ÿ˜›
