I must admit that I’m a little excited about this. Simply because A) it looks very statisfying to me and B ) the terrible horrors that have been reported to me have not occured.
The first beta is now out as a built game and Bugsy already had time to play it. There are, of course, plenty of things in it that don’t work at all but all of those are things that I can repair. The game itself has saved as standalone without any errors! No black textures, missing sounds, runtime errors. Nothing. This is such a good sign to me!
With gameplay that i have set up wrong and the AI being unresponsive, I still have quite some fixing to do before I can finally post that download button.
But at least I should be able to share a video soon.
The framerates are quite good and the game is very scaleable without losing much definition. Not to be compared to something like UE4 but I think that it is now very possible to craft a good looking game in GG and have it run on lower specs. Not that I think Lee souldn’t look into that more or anything, I am merely stating: Its not as bad as it was before.
While it still has glaring faults, there is a lot more right with this than I expected from the first standalone built.
I have also added external anti aliasing and post processing! Take a look:
Cheers to Marty Mc Fly and reshade!
