    Update #20 - Animals selfies, dog chasing a cat and bonus

    Yeah! Devlog episode 20 - our small jubilee :)
    Blocky Farm new features:

    Animal selfies
    Animal now can take a selfie photo :D Then this image is used as an animal potrait in some UI panels. Just take a look.

    Dog chasing a cat
    Everybody knows that dog and cat don’t like each other. That’s why dog can start chase a cat. Sometimes the conflict is exacerbating and chase lasts a very long time, and sometimes ends after a while...

    ..or sometimes something goes wrong xD

    Update #21 - Destroy stones and cutting tree animations with animal response

    Hi, last days we were focused on improving UI, so there is not so much to share with you, but we still have two interesting new features.

    There are some obstacles on the map that blocks parts of a play area. The player can destroy it with a saw or a dynamite and get useful resources: stone or wood. Just take a look:

    Destroy stones animation + animal response

    Cutting tree animation + animal response

    Wow fantastic updates! I love the animal selfie it's very unique.

    Also love how interactive the player can be with its surroundings, it really creatives a more personalized in depth player experience (animal selfies)

    Can't wait for the beta!!

    What about slightly random colored grass? Like some areas with a little more yellow to it. Perhaps it would make it look more organic?

    I'll suggested anything that comes to mind, but then again, I tend to get a little too organic with voxels already haha

    Thanks for your suggestions and - yes - we will definitely put some time on details on the game map. For example, we plan to make the river more curved. Random colored grass is another great idea. Thanks! :)

    Good morning - our Global Game Jam game!

    Hi!

    We just wanted to share our Global Game Jam game with you. Why? Because we think that it is really interesting game. We are proud of it. 'Good morning' was created in 48 hours (that are the rules of GGJ). The theme was 'ritual'. We didn't want to make another game about shamans, voodoo, etc. so we made a game about breaking daily rituals.

    Game is free and we don't have plans to develop it in the future. Grab and play if you want to :) (Don't forget to put on your headphones)

    Game site (download link inside): http://globalgamejam.org/2016/games/good-morning-0
    Gameplay video

    Jury honorable mentioned our game. Feel free to ask me anything :)

    Now we are back to the work on Blocky Farm :D

    Update #23 - New animals and new animations!

    Hi there!
    We are back on developing Blocky Farm after Global Game Jam competition. This week we were hard working on UI design and new animals with animations. Just take a look on these sweet domestic pets :)

    We redesigned some panels to improve buying decorations for example, but they are still on placeholders. That's why we don't post them. But we want to start applying new graphics from UI designer in 2 weeks. :)

    If you are interested in UI changes from the game design side and user experience, I will post them :)

    Yes! Will be!

    Sorry for not posting lately, but we were working so hard.
    We will show something great in the next week probably.
    Moreover we promise to return to posting at least once a week.

    Thanks for your message and support. It is nice to know that there are people who didn't forget about us! :)
    Kind regards, Tobiasz.

    You bring a interesting idea for a genre that has so many versions and looks as it is, I mean we have match 3 type farm games 2d/3D console types, zombie types and do on, but yet have I seen a blocky style like this ^-^ I have been keeping a eye on this .
    Though hoping in the end it's not wifi locked but one can hope ..
    I Love the style, the unique idea, and your dedication, coming back giving us news and updates, keep up the great work ! ^-^

    Thanks. One of our goals is to bring some freshness to farm games genre. :)
    And I can assure you that Blocky Farm won't be wifi locked. There'll be some cases when it will be necessary of course, but we won't require a constant internet connection to play.
    We will post new info next week, stay tuned! :cool:
