Astraverse coming to Steam Next Fest!

First thing’s first… If you don’t already know, lately I’ve been hard at work on crowdfunding to make an enhanced re-release of my previous title, Tales of the Elements. This new Tales of the Elements (we’re calling it T.O.T.E.) is supposed to stand on it’s own without the need of listening to the albums that its original game was based…

Progress Update 4/21/21

I know I keep saying this over and over again (in different ways) but I’m inching ever closer to a playable demo of Astraverse.

Challenges and Opportunity

So, now that the move is over, I’m dealing with a serious case of jet lag. Over the course of the past week, I haven’t had much time to devote to developing Astraverse. This is all understandable but the real downside is that I’ve burned up my only free week before working a new, full-time job by just sleeping and…

Quick update: Moving

First off, I have to apologize for not having a regular update here posted on-time.   My wife and I are moving this week so I haven’t been able to work on Astraverse in a couple of days. We’re almost ready to fly out on Friday so I’ll have some time to work on it before we move.   I…

I’m pretty proud of getting the GDD (game design document) finished. It’s only about 88 pages long but the way I would describe the document is like it being an entire “blueprint” for the game. Put simply, I could literally give the GDD to another developer and they’d know exactly how to design the game in the way that I…

Development Progress 12/30/18

Okay, so this time I decided to take some footage from a couple of weeks ago to showcase some things that I’ve gotten done for the month of December:

Setbacks and “Throw-away” BGM

This week, I’ve been dealing with this stupid bug while trying to import my animations into the game engine that I’m using and it’s taken about half the week to deal with the problem. Funny part was how simple it was to fix the issue…..

Races of the Ze’re System

There are 3 races in Astraverse–much like in Phantasy Star Online, the game that it mostly takes inspiration from. There are humans, an android race called “ADOLs”, and a mutant race called “Neomans.”

The Planets of Ze’re

I think it’s a good time to start talking a bit about the setting of Astraverse. Some of these things I may have briefly mentioned before but in this post, the goal is to go into a bit more detail.   Astraverse takes place in Ze’re, a fictional star system that contains 5 inhabitable planets: Jeavis, Ashara, Autovia, Croatis and…
