Any other ideas?
, your idea about lights is great. Sometimes just flatout dark or an other color or a little bit of blur (or a mix of the three) work also. I am not a side-scroller veteran (especially not with 3d ones), mostly just played some Metal Slug and recently a bit of indie game Gigantic Army, here are some reference pics for color and brightness differences:

Though from the sound of your recent additions it probably already is alot better, futher additions are like cherry on top. wink

I see what you mean. In some cases it already works pretty good, while in some others you hardly can judge what's in front and what's in the background. I think it's mostly about having much less contrast and details in the background graphics than in the foreground. I think that's pretty much the point here. That rule also matches your screenshots.

That's good input. laugh

Long time no see! Sorry about that, there's so much going on right now that I rarely had the chance to post something new here. But that doesn't mean there's nothing happening with Rigid Force Alpha!
I recently switched to full-time development and am currently in the process of polishing all my content and finalizing the levels. Next up will be balancing, which is long overdue. I've also planned to add additional gameplay modes for enhanced long-term motivation.

During the past months I reworked the overall gameplay system, which is now a bit more coherent, and it's working nicely. I think I'll tell you more about that in one of my next posts. Until then, you'll find some random impressions from the last few months under this one.

And not to forget: There's now an offical project website which you can reach under www.com8com1.com, as well as Facebook and Twitter sites. You can also find us on IndieDB and Tumblr . We've got some cool content prepared, so make sure to stay in touch and follow us!

RFA's new player respawn routine - and some nice explosions

Our new player ship. Mesh is final so far, the texture will receive a few additional details later.

I don't have much of a clue about shader programming, but I wanted enemies to flash up when hit. Without really knowing what I was doing, I edited Kartoffel's shaders a bit and eventually I managed to create this nice hit flash effect. Lucky me!



Quote:
Another result of random shader editing: I implemented an option to adjust the color of this mini boss, so I can easily make it fade from light green to a deep red according to its health points.

And some more random in-game shots - enjoy!


Quote:
The Chaser is a new type of enemy which, well, chases the player once activated. Pretty nice gameplay in narrow areas.



Quote:
I've also been experimenting with explosions recently. Pretty nice, eh? It's a little bit over the top here, but the effect is adjustable in size and intensity.



Quote:
A new scene in stage 2. These orbs slowly approach the player ship as it passes through the narrow pipe tunnels. Specularity comes in pretty nicely here.



Quote:
This wasp-like mini boss in stage 3 took me quite a while! The texture is baked from a hand-sculpted high-poly mesh, with a hand painted finish. I also created several unique animation phases and a nifty destruction effect. Maybe I should create a short video of this scene. laugh



Quote:
The Clapworm is another pretty cool enemy. It lurks in the sands, waiting for the careless player getting too close.



Quote:
Another scene from stage 3. If you look closely, you'll discover some large spider-like critters hanging from the ceiling. You'll also have to be careful when passing the sandfalls in this stage, as they keep pushing your ship downwards to the ground.

Thanks! Yes, it's slowly getting more and more complete. And the particle effects really add to the overall look, I think. laugh
