Weekly Update #6 – Lots of bubbles!

By Loueye, Wednesday July 22, 2020

Hi everyone, Loueye here. We are back for a new update about our dear STARRY ISLAND. I’ve some new stuff to share so let’s get started!

First of all, we especially worked on two aspects of our game lately: battles and windows/dialogues/menus. Feerey and I have been testing, retesting font size, with or without serifs, colors… It’s an interesting work, but we finally came up with some stuff that we are fine with! It may be not definitive, but it’ll definitely have this kind of graphics:

Rempel isn’t really from caca. Feerey is childish.

But what does it look like in-game? It’s definitely working great! Add some classic windowskin, and we have a cool HUD!

Sweet lil’ HUD!

Feerey also made some new emotions bubbles for our heroes. Bubbles can show the feelings of Rempel (or his companion…!), and every characters in the game. It’s important to use them in cutscenes, so that the player can understand the heroes’ mood. Here’s some of them!

Feels…

We are now working on battle HUDs and battle graphics. We’ll show you some battle screenshots but when we have some ‘almost-definitive’ version! And a huge thank you for all the new fanarts community made of our foes! It’s really encouraging and delightful to see them in other art styles, so thanks!

I would love to share you some other stuff, but at the moment there’s nothing else really interesting to show. Plus, we want to keep some exclusive content for some trailer we would make for the demo, so stay tuned!

And that’s all for this week! Make sure to subscribe to the mailing list to be notified when a new blogpost is out! Until then, take care, see you next week, ciao!
