Hello! And welcome to my first blog post regarding my current WIP "Moon".
Moon is a 2D Side Scroller developed in Unity C#. Impressive, right?! Right...?
So, although side scrollers aren't exactly new and fresh, I am using the opportunity to both work on something I have been wanting to for years, and also to learn new tricks... My C# has gotten a little rusty...
The concept revolves mostly around world switching. I want to tell a story of "good vs evil" as seen from both side's perspective. The main character Isri is a half-demon and servant to a Philosopher. Isri resides in a world named Paradise, a lush and beautiful realm filled with limestone architecture, greenery, and wildlife.
Something goes wrong when demons come through portals and attack Paradise. Isri is tasked to retrieve the fabled weapon the Moonglaive - known to create rifts in space time. Isri travels to the Chamber of the Moon and sees an Aviary Demigod tampering with the Moonglaive, asking Isri to "return the balance."
With the power of the Moonglaive, Isri can jump effortlessly between realms to figure out the source of the demon invasion and why they are able to survive in Paradise.
Nifty, right? So, what's exactly my plan here as a solo dev?
I am someone who likes to work on multiple projects. I'll admit. I love doing this, as well as level design and writing, s0 I will be working on this a few days a week. The goal is to create a Verical Slice showcasing the basic mechanics and features necessary for the game. After this is done I will see from there whether or not I continue as a solo dev or work with anyone who is interested.
I will keep this post short as I am really excited to get on with more and post more updates. So I will catch you in the next one, thanks for reading!
