Post by: djaydino on October 18, 2019, 10:37:14 AM
Hi PlayMaker community!

It is time to reveal what we (Mirari & CO (https://www.mirari.tv/) and JinxterGames (http://www.jinxtergames.com/)) are working on :


Dark Light Website Link (https://www.darklight-game.com/)            Dark Light Steam page link (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1134520/Dark_Light/)

Dark Light is a Sci-fi action-platformer with unique game-play.
Explore apocalypse cyberpunk world full of supernatural beings.
Encounter and defeat creatures of darkness which are invisible to the naked eye, detected only with the light source of your drone.
Experience the horror and feel their presence as they surround you.

The game is so far about 95% made with PlayMaker!
I did have to make several custom actions for 3rd party assets, but its still using Playmaker :D

I was about to say "it's a bit dark" but it's in the name lol.
Looks pretty but I'd be a bit worried about the visibility of the character and the nearby environment, like the immediate top surface of the platform he's standing on.
Maybe it would be good to have a slight illumination of the bottom part of the legs and the surface of the floor be slightly illuminated too by the drone following the player?

Looks fantastic, djaydino! Now the equally difficult quest to make it known. Good luck!

 I'm interested in some advanced PlayMaker patterns or tips, like managing the data, prefabs with fsms and how to organize variants etc.

Hi.
I am working on some tutorials for handling inventory / stats. but due to lack of time at the moment it can take some time to release them,
As i can't show / use the system from within the game at the moment due to NDA.

Mainly i am using Xml and hash tables, xml to input data and hash table to use @runtime. (xml is to slow to handle many things during game play, but a lot easier to setup and adjust)

Thanks.

@Thore

Yes we are aware that we need in air shoot animations, but at the moment we don't have an animator and can not afford a professional animator :)
