Dev Diary #57: Party on the Beach
Hello again everyone!
If the summer weather is hitting you hard, I’m sure you’d love nothing more than to visit a tropical paradise. One with pristine beaches, plenty of attractions, and an army of card game enthusiasts. Unfortunately, a place like that may be hard to find. Lucky for you, that perfect place is within reach in Luckless Seven!
Work continues to progress well for Neropolis. We’re continuing to make changes to the city based on feedback we’ve received over the past couple weeks.
Wishlist Luckless Seven on Steam! Don't miss the release discount when it launches!
Besides work on the environment, we’ve also been busy populating the city and making it the most NPC-filled place we’ve made yet! Neropolis will feature tons of people you can battle for practice, money, or cards. The most challenging opponents can, of course, be found in and around the casino.
On the music side, we’ve also whipped up a new victory and defeat theme to play at the conclusion of battles. Our composer Brandon has been cranking tracks out like crazy, so if you haven’t checked out his SoundCloud in a while, be sure to catch up on his newest masterpieces!

Outside of our game, we wanted to do a shoutout to our good friends over at Skookum Arts. This small team of talented developers are working on an amazing game called The Pedestrian. The game is a 2.5D side-scrolling platformer where you solve puzzles in an environment where you move through signs (you’ll get the gist of the game after looking at one picture).
Jesse had the recent pleasure of making a trip to their studio in Waldo (where’s Waldo? It’s near the center of...), Ohio (another Ohio game dev???). The fine folks at Skookum have a small, cozy area in the woods where they are making the finishing touches to their game.
We’ve been watching The Pedestrian over the years and it’s definitely one of our most anticipated upcoming games! If you like puzzles or side-scrollers, be sure to check them out.
They also have a short demo (20-35 minutes) on their website and it's a fun play!
