Lovers

Since starting on Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime we’ve kinda been measuring time in Valentine’s Days, and with another one about to roll past it’s time to take stock and show you guys where we’re at. It’s been a while since the last update. February also marks one year since we started working full-time on the game, so there’d better be some major progress!

Since we started working on Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, we’ve been showing the game at as many events as we can, but one place we never expected it to end up in was a crazy amazing indie game museum exhibit.

Seattle’s EMP museum recently celebrated the opening of Indie Game Revolution, a gigantic playable exhibit-slash-arcade celebrating contemporary indie games, filled with info, interviews, and games, games, games. We’re honoured to have Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime be part of the show alongside wonderfulness like Tenya Wanya Teens, Monument Valley, Never Alone, Galak-Z, Gone Home, Papers Please, Quadrilateral Cowboy and tons more. Unfortunately we couldn’t make it across the continent for the opening, but Jacob McMurray from EMP sent us some terrific photos.

The Ceraf enemy uses timers to control its pre-shoot, shoot and post-shoot animations and actions.

Warning: Super dry, tool-focused devlog incoming!

One of the tasks we find ourselves doing quite frequently while working on Lovers is controlling the timing of things (loop an animation for x seconds, randomize AI behaviour every y seconds, etc.). There are many ways to accomplish these types of actions, for instance you could do something like this:

News // Where to play Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime: End of Summer Edition!

By Jamie Tucker // August 18th, 2014

It’s been quite a busy summer here at Asteroid Base. We’ve mostly been hunkering down on development to get as much done as we can on the game. We had to miss a few opportunities to exhibit the game over the summer, but Microsoft was kind enough to show the game on our behalf at the San Diego Comic Con and Gamescom, and we’re now looking forward to some upcoming events where you can play our latest build.
