Dev Blog Update

Not much has happened this month, so I'll be waiting until December to report the news.  Sorry about any disappointment that may cause.  See you next month!

Dev Blog #9

A Lifetime Behind Bars:
It's finally Spooktober and what a better way to celebrate it than to add the scariest thing of all time to the game.  Bats?  Zombies? Skeletons?  Of course not!  The scariest thing we could imagine was a lifetime of sadness in prison.  Cytopia now has some prison pieces for you to play around with, although it lacks proper functionality at the moment.  

There is also…

Dev Blog #8

Hello everyone!  I'm finally back with another dev blog.  I've decided to only make dev blogs once a month from now on so I can cover more interesting topics in one big blog, rather than covering lots of small/uninteresting things every couple of weeks.

Binaural Audio:
Recently, one of our developers, adct23, has added the groundwork for binaural audio in Cytopia!  In simple terms, binaural…

Dev Blog #7

New Slider:
A new slider for the UI has been made by one of our developers, Liz.  Although it's not used for much now, it'll be useful in the future for things like terrain generation selection.

New Ground Types:
There's a new terrain type: mud!  It goes well with the dirt and soil we have.  And of course, it'll be used in map generation once we get that feature done.  On top of that, we also…

New Lead Developer

It pains me to say that our Lead Developer, Jimmy Snails, will be stepping down from his position.  

Ercadio will be our new Lead Developer from now on.

However, thanks to our new team of developers, Cytopia will continue to be developed and worked on, so don't worry about our project getting abandoned or anything anytime soon!

Dev Blog #6

Another two weeks, another dev blog.  Sorry about this one being late.  I haven't had the ability to write this until now.
Anyway,

Translations:
Recently, we have started to work on localization for Cytopia!  As of right now, I believe there are quite a few languages being worked on, but I'm sure that the number of languages we'll support will only grow with time.

Ambient Sounds:
Since the…

Dev Blog #5

It sure has been awhile, hasn't it?  Well, that's because we decided to post-pone this dev blog for a bit, so we would have more stuff to talk about.  Sorry about the wait, hopefully the wealth of new information will make up for it.

New Terrain Generation Features:
The development team has been working hard on the terrain generation, with their most recent editon being trees.  The basic trees will now appear in map generation, which should make your maps feel more…

Dev Blog #4

Hello everyone.  Another couple of weeks have passed by, which means that it’s time for another dev blog.

Touch Controls:
Touch controls have been added to the game.  You can now control the game with relative ease using these touch controls.  However, this will mainly be for Windows 10 devices for now.  Here’s a video about it:

Dev Blog #3

Hello everyone,
It's about that time again for another dev blog.  We've been hard at work on Cytopia and we have completed lots of new content lately!

ButtonGroups

One of the most annoying things in the latest tech preview build was, that all buttons in the build menu could be active at the same time. This must have looked like a bug to some of you, but actually it was a missing feature!

Our custom UI didn’t feature exclusive button groups until now.

Dev Blog #2

Hello everyone.
It has been a couple of weeks, which means it's time for another dev blog.  I guess we'll be going into depth a lot more from now on, so these will probably get quite a bit longer, but I'm sure some of you people out there will enjoy the detail.

Anyway,


Music

Great News, everyone! MB22 joined our team and will create awesome music and soundeffects for Cytopia henceforth!…

Dev Blog #1

Hello,
This will be the first dev blog of what will eventually (and hopefully) be many.  Here I'll talk about some behind-the-scenes stuff and I'll try to keep everyone up to date with our progress on Cytopia, while keeping it as brief as I can.  I plan on doing these bi-weekly, but we'll have to see if we have enough new information to do so.  Anyway, on with the blog…

Development:
On the…
