This week I’ve been working on some new art for Secrets of Grindea once more!
First up, two new expressions for Zhamla:
I also edited to floor, removing the golden bars to make the battle area look more clean – before and after below:
There’s also an extended background for the final scene in the true ending, where the camera will be able to scroll up past the Collector’s HQ and into the skies above for the credits.
Despite only part of the roof showing in the game, I (thankfully) had been smart enough to make the entire thing when I first made the HQ building, meaning a lot less work compared to having to puzzle together the rooftop as well.
Although this scene is much larger than what will actually be shown in the game engine (the camera is almost half the size of the background above), I still wanted to make a version that show the entire thing, flowers and all. Perhaps we’ll at least be able to use it in the production book?
For the actual game engine, we’ll use this smaller version:
So nice to be able to make some backgrounds again! Definitely looking forward to the next project, where I’ll be able to make a ton more 🙂
I’ve also made some new items: some paw prints for the housing system, an accessory and a new hat!
All of these were made in collaboration with our backers – thank you so much for supporting the game! ❤️
There’s still a few small things to add before I’ve made my final contribution to the game, but either way, it feels so cool to have gotten this far. Soon 1.0! 🙂
I’ts a good news.
Are you planning to port the game to Nintendo Switch?
I think this game is perfect for portable gaming.
Checking this dev blog has been part of my online routine for over ten years now…
The fact that we’re so close to final release is surreal.
Are you all planning any kind of launch party? Maybe a simple livestream play session with a casual AMA while you/we play?
I’d tune in. 🍻
P.S. Switch port, please!
I agree with Eoin Fay, I would love to see the dev team do a co-op session running through this wonderful game.
Can’t wait for the final release – I plan on buying a few copies for my family. Will the price be increasing?
