Another tentative logo for DreamSphere…
Looking better! A friend who works in the graphic design field has been giving me suggestions. Thanks Bill Humphries!
I've been working on a couple of things in the game that I can't exactly show pictures for. The first one is I have added support for joysticks/gamepads! Unfortunately Panda3D doesn't natively support joysticks so I had to look to another Python game engine that did. That engine was Pygame, which is another fantastic python engine, but unfortunately doesn't support any kind of 3D graphics. It is likely that I will need to use Pygame for sound and music as well since there appear to be issues with the sound libraries in Panda3D.
Secondly, I have made it possible to run in the game, or run faster whatever you want to call it. When running you have to decelerate to come to a stop or change directions. This follows something I've observed in a lot of other platformer games. Few games allow the character to simply change direction in an instant, they usually have to slow down and do a skidding animation. I still need to work on adding the animations for the different state changes involved while running.
That's all I got for now!
