Yes, it's another blog post!
Over the past few days I've been recording my screen while working and hope to soon publish a timelapse/voiceover video going over what I've been working on in a more visual way.
But, just to summarize here:
When the player presses the Left Grip Button, a map UI will appear (either as a held object, or a static object in front of you). This will have the player's stats (health, stamina, gold amount, etc), along with some options as to which object to be building (Walls, stairs, etc).
I am also experimenting with making the game moddable via Json data. Then, the player can easily go into the files and alter the way the AI works, the players stats, and effectively use "Cheat Codes" (a rarity nowadays) to change the way the game plays. Hopefully this should extend the life of the game in ways that I didn't think possible previously.
Any feedback is appreciated!
Thanks for reading!
