A bucket of new stuff in Urth

In spite of a lack of updates things were done. Great things, wondrous marvelous things! Such wondrous and marvelous things that the human mind can not comprehend! Unfortunately we’ll have to talk about those some other time, since this post is about Urth.

As you may or may not remember Urth scored less than desirably( in LD21) in graphics with an overall 2.65. Needless to say that was given priority. Next up was audio, as that wasn’t great either. After I’ve narrowed down the priorities I’ve naturally decided to start working on something entirely different: the level editor. And what a glorious level editor it is! is it? it may be, it’s like asking a chef how good the food he spent all day cooking is. And by chef I mean amateur cook. And by amateur cook I mean someone who poured himself a bowl of cereal. Now I feel like eating cereal, but I must finish this post first.

The music… well I’ve taken the liberty of outsourcing the music to this chap right here so go and listen to his stuff (and like it!). I’m not posting the music here, you’ll have to wait till I submit the game tomorrow, or the day after. If it’s not done in the last few hours it’s not a proper jam at all.

So what have I got to show other than talk of cereal and a link to a music man? Well what’s left? The graphics! Good answer, shows you were paying attention. And what better way to show off graphics than by showing them! No, not a video, but close enough… screenshots!

Let’s begin:

The updated main menu


The pretty-fied level selection menu


The awesome-ized escape mode settings menu


Gameplay screenshot with 100% more magnets


More gameplay


This may not seem it, but it's from escape mode

There are numerous fixes optimizations and tweaks, but nobody can see them so nobody really cares. Next I’ll finish up the win-linux-osx ports and off to markets they go.

That’s it for now, until next time!
