Development Log #9

Author   Thomas Cashman | Posted On   March 7th 2019 | Category   Development Log

Hey there Cutie Club,

We’re still busy doing a lot of work behind the scenes in preparation for the beta but we’ve got some updates!

Environment Tilesets

Sebastien has been hard at work finishing off the tilesets for the different environments on Wimba Island. He’s also done a lot of recoloring to make everything look more cuter!

Modding Tools

Tom (me) has finished implementing the modding tools and now all the game’s content is packed using the tools. We’re still unsure how to test the modding API with the community – maybe we’ll do a private modding beta? If you’re interested, be sure to pop on to our Discord server and let us know! ๐Ÿ™‚

Localisation Tools

I’ve also been implementing a gettext library and tool for automating the generation of files needed for localisation. We haven’t finalised the languages available at launch, more information will be available at a later date. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s next?

We still have a lot of writing to do and we’re starting to do a rough pass of the island’s map design in Tiled (this will definitely take some time). Tom will also preparing a final bugfix patch for the alpha in preparation for GDC.

As always, make sure to follow @alchemiccutie and @CIRCLE_Entย for future updates.
