New Game! Swirling Blades: Desert Thunder

Post by kazade » Wed Jan 01, 2020 12:44 am

Hi everyone!

This is my submission for the Dream On Game Jam. It's a demo of a larger game I'm working on and the first true test of my Simulant Game Engine.

Known Issues:
  • It's a little slow, I'm going to spend the next month or so profiling and optimising Simulant to improve this.
  • It occasionally crashes/freezes on load. This is a race condition I didn't get to track down before the jam deadline.
  • The controller deadzones aren't quite right.
  • If you fly off the map, you're in for a bad time.
  • Sometimes it freezes at the mission complete/failed screen.
  • Some of the game UI is glitchy on hardware.
