Jupiter Hell - Dev Talk #1 - Physics, part 1
« on: September 14, 2016, 15:33 »

We'd like to invite you, to what we hope will become a regular feature on the Jupiter Hell website - a series of behind the scenes articles about the game's development!

DEV TALK #1 - PHYSICS, PART 1

The first Dev Talk is an overview of our currently ongoing implementation of physics and how it relates to the turn-based roguelike we're creating.



Feel free to ask questions, and tell us if you enjoy such content? Do you want more such technical rants? Should they delve deeper into technical aspects, or should they be more of a feature discussion and rant for everyone to enjoy?

That was an awesome read. I do follow your Twitter ramblings, so most of this was already known to me, but it's interesting reading about your thoughts, plans and goals for different parts of the game and engine. I think you kept a very good level. It was enough to get me interested, but not technical enough to make me go cross-eyed. I say you were spot on.

This all looks quite excellent so far - keep up the good work. Just one question, though:

When can we expect the Kickstarter?

Obviously full destruction is ideal, but I agree with the stretch goal idea for it. The procedurally generated deaths based on current pose certainly has a lot of possibilities - especially in a world where time might pass for those monsters between your firing and the rocket/shell/bullet hitting them. Will you also procedurally generate some aspects of their movements to keep things completely fresh?

The UED boxes are a nice touch. :P

Thanks for the update! It's nice to know that you're not building the entire engine. :D
