Reynard Devlog #25 – Damage Numbers, Zoe, Resolution Improvement and More (0.9.6)
Now you can see clearly what’s going on. How much damage you’re dealing, how much damage you’re receiving, if you’re getting healed etc.
In my opinion damage numbers give player a valuable feedback about what’s going on. In the future update I’ll add an option so you will still be able to disable them if you find them bothering.
Besides all the special rooms that you can find in Reynard, I wanted to add another thing that would reward exploration.
That’s why I’ve added Zoe. She’s a cool owl which can reward you with different items. You’ll be able to summon her only if you trigger all the pressure plates in the level.
You can select the type of reward you want to receive based on the pressure plates you’ve triggered. Reward types are:
- Companion / Ally
As the playerbase of Reynard is growing, I’m receiving more and more feedback. One of the fellow gamers told me that he had an issue with a resolution. He told me that he can’t normally see the whole cell of the dungeon.
I had no other options left, but to tackle the camera again, which lead me to upgrade the whole unity project to the newer version etc.
Now in dungeon all players have the same visible field. I solved this with leaving the game to the monitor’s native resolution and adding black bars to the screen. It works good and the game looks smoother than with an older camera settings!
