I’ve spent the past few weeks coding out the new features of the game; quite possibly, one of the most complicated features of the game is implemented (partially). And this is the Inventory System and the Tower Building system! I have put together this short video showing the new features in action!     The […]

Running our game on a mobile device for the first time is very exciting! A figuring of one of our characters, Kim, stands and supervises the mobile development testing. The game appeared to be running flawlessly at a consistent frame rate. However a few of the controls (such as pan and zoom) did not translate over […]

Some of the beta testers have noted that the prototype is much more difficult than expected. There are several reasons for this: Technically the prototype is supposed to take place as the 3rd or 4th real level of the game. It is not supposed to be a “first level” type of level, that would be […]

After all the teasing, artwork, and seemingly “random” cast of characters, we are pleased to announce that officially NONE of those connections or story will be clarified at all! This gameplay prototype serves one purpose, the backbone of the gameplay for TinyWars and gameplay, as a mechanism to deliver our story! Sorry, that has to […]

We hope that you will find her backstory to be a refreshing twist of both happy and depressing ingredients. We’ve been mixing many new features into the demo that we’ve been teasing […]

Game development and coding in general can get very messy, very fast! Since we still don’t have something that I deem worthy to release to the public, I thought I might take this time to show our workflow. Take Notes! Most coding software and languages support in-code notes, however that certainly may not be enough, […]

Back in February, we teased this gameplay render (pictured below). A lot of people thought the witches were cute and the lighting effects were on par.
