So, to kick it off, here’s the most recent build of Lurk, just compiled this morning.
The controls haven’t changed, except for one that was added. There are now three camera modes (The first two are broken in the Flash deployment, if you intend to try that one). Press the “C” key to cycle through them. I made a third person, a third person over-the-shoulder and first person view, since I figure that those will all be useful for the player to navigate the world and engage in combat, covering the two play styles the game will emphasize on.
WASD or Arrows to Move (Configurable in the downloadable client)
Mouse to Look
C to cycle camera modes
From now on, you’ll always be able to find the controls and links to Lurk on it’s shiny, new page here on the site.
I also put together an experimental project on Newgrounds. I’m testing out the Flash deployment in Unity as well, and you can play the most recent incarnation of the Flash upload on this project page. It should be public and open for anyone to go and look at. It also contains the design details I added to the new page on the site (See below)
Note: There is a problem with the Newgrounds Flash project not taking the newest build. Working on a fix. Until then, here’s the direct Flash build. If you go and use the one on the project page, it won’t be the most recent. Try it out on the direct link, for now.
I’ve also made a much better looking logo thing, that actually looks like a puma with wings. I’ve got different places updated with it, like my deviantArt ID picture or the site icon here. Not a major change, but I’ve been meaning to do it for a while now.
As seen above, the new page for Lurk is on the site! It’s under the “Games” dropdown menu and is also accessible from the Games page itself. It contains an overview of the game, the controls and links to the game itself. Underneath the immediately awesome stuff, it currently has two big blocks of text. They cover my current ideas on combat and environments in Lurk, mostly discussing the basic play style outline and a bit about the places the player will explore.
