Cave Defender Devlog – Weeks of August 20 & August 27, 2018

Since January 1st of this year, I’ve been keeping a log of my daily work on Cave Defender. I’m sharing this log on a weekly basis so you can find out how development is going with the game. In the last week I:

  • Finished the scene list management tool.
  • Started writing an editor script to help swap build scene lists – because Google Cardboard VR build targets require some additional scenes.
  • Looked into some refactoring based on warnings I got using Unity in windows (not sure why the same version of Unity on macOS doesn’t have those C# warnings) but no luck so far. Also made a build of iOS, to make sure that still works. Also looked into some editor scripts for loading scenes, because I had an idea of automating taking some screenshots so when I make changes I can regenerate screenshots for a website or something. Reviewed website planning doc.
  • More work on Mission 3, added BOB-95 waiting for input, and stubbed out support for the enemy waves.
  • More dialog implementation, tested other bay doors opening code.
  • Implemented a bunch of mission 3 dialog that I previously wrote. Development was on hold for almost a week due to the passing of our dear Daisy. Hug your loved ones, you never know when it might be the last time 🙁
  • Got the doors to open. Was a typical too-tired-to-work problem.
  • Did a bunch of work to connect the bay doors to code, they aren’t opening for some reason.
