Moving into present technologies

Ok, I finished with Hero for a peroid of a year or so in the state it was. This was 2/3 levels with 30 or so sub-levels.

I liked the fact I could get it running at a fast frame rate, but if there was a future for this game it would have to be using present technologies.

I opted for Unity3d as I'm getting pretty versed in that environment and programming everything in C#. Of course hardware acceleration is a luxury (something presently impossible in Bennu) and things are moving quite fast.

The graphics I've been enhancing for double the size per pixel and it looks a lot better.

I'm also using 2dtoolkit by Unikron software which is really an extension for Unity and totally speeds up the development process once you have the tools all figured out, perhaps is for more intermediate users (people with Unity experience) though I recommend it for this type of game.

Unity provides a lot of porting options, all kinds of consoles and devices.

Anyway, I'm just getting the enemies working... here is a screen for you, which possibly ends the worklog here. If I start a worklog anywhere else I'll post the link here for those who are interested.

Yes yes. I've seen everything already and wish you the best of luck. And a Boolean Soup worklog will probably be visited more than a blog somewhere.

I'm not concerned about hits to be honest, as long as I have a space to plan and write - and link people easily :P

Please ignore the "new blog". I don't have time for Hero: The Realm at the moment and I'm considering a full 3d version of Hero if I am to continue. Either that or a BOLT OF LIGHTNING powers me back to 2006 and I can develop Hero all over again!
