Last week was spent on my tennis game & Steam, so I almost didn’t work on Dungeon Guardians.
This week, I’ll be busy with some stuff and I also need to rest a bit, so I’ll work on DG but not too much.
So this post is a good occasion to ask : what’s next ?
The current goal now is to put Dungeon Guardians on Steam Greenlight, to get a chance to sell the game on Steam ( = a lot more exposure than on managames.com ).
To do so, I need a good video trailer. This means I need a finished GUI. Sound FX still need work, but it’s less important as the music will cover almost everything.
Right now, I still need to design 1 GUI part : the party creation process ; ie: at the start of the game, we’ll have to pick the members to add to our party, or create new ones by selecting their portrait, genre, class, etc…
So I’ll start to work on that very soon. Once it’ll be all designed, I’ll do the complete list of what textures, backgrounds, buttons, icons, portraits in the whole game I need to be done or redone, and I’ll look for some 2D artist(s) to do that.
Then I’ll integrate the result in the game, and I’ll look for a trailer specialist to create the required video, and then I’ll be able to create the game page for Steam Greenlight. Finally, we’ll have to wait a couple of months to see if the game gets enough votes to deserve the attention of the Steam team.
I’m not sure how long it’ll take to publish this Greenlight page, but I hope it’ll be around 1 month and half at maximum, so it’ll give enough time to gather votes before finishing the game development.
That’s all for now, cya next week !
