today we are going to speak about moustache and beard… yes it’s true, you heard right.
As the days go by our Chico will grow a pair of cowboy moustache and a thick beard proving you were playing for some time now. Time is beaten by the ticktack of our day-night cycle simulation system already set up and running in Unity ( we planned to show it later in a more specific article ).
Obviously we don’t want Chico to be forced to have moustache and beard all the time… in fact during the game you will be able to craft a “toeletta”, so giving our poor hero the opportunity to shave while the screensaver is running ( so after you tasted your coffee you might see him ten years younger ).
You will also be able to choose weather Chico should shave or not by checking an option in the game menu…..maybe you want him to be the wildest one.
Here a short video:
The whole video has been rigged in Blender, whereas the same growing effect has been made in Unity by using LeanTween, a great and well known tool to play with interpolation.
That’s all for today folk.
Have fun and stay tuned.
the night could be very cold in the far west, so we have chosen to give Chico the opportunity to craft a campfire to keep warm and do a lot of other exciting things.
How it works: while playing the game, if you get enough resources, you can craft the campfire and put it wherever you want on the ground; then, when you get your
coffee break at work, a long coffee break, the screensaver will start and Chico be allowed to sit down by the fire and cook a marshmallow
( I don’t really know if they had marshmallow in the old far west ) or play a banjo… or do whatever he wants.
The campfire and all of the other models have been made using Blender and texturized in Substance Painter by our great 3D artist; also Chico has been modeled and overall
animated all in Blender. All the assets are then loaded in Unity and thanks to our developer ( the best in the world ) all the things you see come to life.
That’s all folk… stay tuned.
Thanks from 1M2B.
here we are with a little update.
In this way our character can keep the materials in this structure to use them as needed.
Rendezvous at the next update, many new structures and many new animations for when the game will switch to the mode screensaver
Our hero ( who’s named Chico ) finds himself alone on the peak of a mountain in the middle of nowhere ( somewhere in the far west ); he can only get resources to create tools or buildings which might be useless during gameplay, but for sure will make his own life better, giving him a lot of different things to do in his free time ( when you are not forcing that poor guy to do something boring indeed ). For example if you get to build an hammock you might see Chico while taking some rest in your coffee time as soon as the screen saver starts ( or maybe not ).
The gameplay is very simple and intuitive because, as we’ve already said, the game purpose is to give you the ability to customize your own screensaver and thus see how Chico enjoys himself doing exciting sports like throwing stones against condors and more.
- Day-night cycle
- Looting and crafting systems
- Screen Saver integrated
- Customizable time speed ( time is set to your timezone )
- Inventory manager
Useful tools and structures
Free time ( screensaver )
- Shave toilet…..
- …..and much more
Our plan is to support the game with constant updates and thus releasing new tools and buildings to get Chico’s free time more comfortable.
That’s our idea, let us know what you think about it.
Here we go, Cannon Arena is now available on Steam, a small step for humanity, a huge step for us!
Here we are, team 1 Monkey 2 Brains, getting a website and introducing ourselves in this capacity.
In this site you will have the opportunity to get updates about our work, what has already been done, what is under development and what our plans for the future are.
For any information, advice, criticism, or proposal, do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to consider your message and answer as soon as possible.
