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…

I Finished the GDD for Astraverse!

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…

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:

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…

Character Creation & Stuff

Ever since my wife and I came up with a decent number of outfits and hairstyles for the characters in the game, I decided to focus my efforts into finishing up the character creator. Here’s the song I composed for the character creation: The funny thing about making a character creator is that it’s not really hard to design. But,…

Should’ve Started This Before But Here Goes…

I’m not really sure of what the best opening start to a blog is…. I figured I’d just go ahead and say that instead of pretending like I have all the answers or know completely what I’m doing.  I’m starting this blog because I’m currently working on a serious game project inspired by my favorite video game “Phantasy Star Online”…
