Battle Gem Ponies DevLog #57 (Undertale Hit Me Hard)


     Undertale has had an undeniable effect on how I'll be approaching game design. Aspects of my future games have been affected too and I wrote up a lot of design changes to Unicorn Quest in order to make it a more story rich world people can fall in love with.

     I'm determined to make characters in Battle Gem Ponies that people will quickly fall in love with. Battle Gem Ponies needs to balance tension, humor, mystery, and sadness perfectly in order to make exploring Pinto a truly memorable experience.  I understand now, more than ever, just how much emotion affects a player's attachment to a game.

Take a look at how Battle Gem Ponies has grown this past week below!

Battle Gem Ponies DevLog #56 (Projections, Memorials, & YouTubers)


     I am excited to continue development after a hectic week of life getting in the way. Not much got done dev-wise thanks to all the traveling this weekend, reuniting with friends, and adjusting to my school schedule. This week, I've got a grasp on things and I can get started on my 4 hour minimum workday plan. Battle Gem Ponies needs to be out by November. And I'll make sure it happens.

Battle Gem Ponies DevLog #55 (Hopeful)


     Begin Part 2 of Senior Year. Once this college thing is over there will be new headaches and freedoms to take on. The next 5 months of development are planned out and I'l be chipping away at them all I can. My head is swarming with story ideas and the scope of that story rests on how much of the actual game manages to get implemented.

See what I've done for Battle Gem Ponies so far below.
