Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for June 7th, 2019, detailing all the changes that have happened since May 20th, 2019. Note: Devs that don’t appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn’t need to be detailed.
Fishing Update and Hotfix
Last week, we released the Fishing update, which introduced the long awaited Fishing minigame playable in the Plaza, with over 100 fish and items to obtain. You can read about the update’s release here.
Yesterday, we released a small hotfix to fix some issues that were introduced with the Fishing update, which you can read about here.
We hired a new artist for the summer, Wheezwer. She’ll be working on the cabinet artwork and sprites for the Arcade.
Arcade Work and Art
Now that Fishing is released, our focus has turned onto the Arcade.
@Johanna has started working on a new ring toss machine and a new ball toss machine, as well as working on the prize redemption desk.
Wheezwer completed work on the cabinet art for Whirl-A-Fish, and started working on the cabinet art for the claw machine.
@Gloves continued working on player animations for the Arcade, this week focusing on the animations for the Wack-a-mole machine.
@macdguy started working on the arcade game base (that handles all the machines gameplay code), mechanisms to debug the player animations, as well as starting work on the basic game loop and networking of game events.
