There’s also more than just the art direction. I feel that the players don’t have a clear goal. Why do they want to keep building into the sky? Why do they want to work together with other players? I just don’t think playtesting will help. What we need is a design document but we currently don’t have that at the moment. What we have is a lot of questions and mixed thoughts but nothing concrete. We need direction. We need to know what we’re working towards, not just a date. I seriously doubt we’ll get anywhere unless this is fixed soon.
Playtesting should happen when we have our gameplay done and level done. Then we can make modifications to it. Sigh…
I need to work on adding numbers to the blocks so when they’re spawned they have a particular material attached according to what number they’re assigned. It kind of doesn’t help that the textures are all jpegs. JPEGs are awful. They really are. You lose so much quality with them its not funny.
