After the primary few months, I had a very tough working prototype. It wasn’t a lot however it gave me a good suggestion of what labored and what didn’t, from that first move.
Over the following yr, I had accomplished virtually half of the sport. About 6 ranges whereas continuously having pals playtest the sport giving me suggestions and options. This was crucial as each stage was handcrafted with each impediment being hand positioned relatively than utilizing procedurally generated content material. At that time, I went to my buddy Dan who had performed the entire music for my initiatives to the rating for the sport. I knew I wished to combine two completely different genres of music, however the first few makes an attempt didn’t really feel proper. After a couple of months of forwards and backwards, we got here up with a chill however thrilling mixture of hip-hop and traditional jazz. We got here up with a very fascinating workflow the place I might do some artwork and provides him plot particulars concerning the stage and he would use that as a guild of how the songs ought to really feel.
At this level, the title of the sport went by a couple of iterations earlier than I landed on “By no means Yield” I felt it was the proper description for each the characters’ trials in addition to my very own. I then added my Tag “Aerial_Knight” to the title. The identify I’ve passed by on-line since I used to be a child. I wished to let folks know that there wasn’t a big studio or massive crew that put this sport collectively however only a man who couldn’t discover a possibility within the video games business and tried to make his personal.
Shortly after the sport was featured in a couple of showcases which gained the eye of the Germany-based writer Headup who supplied lots of the alternatives I’ve obtainable now. This sport wouldn’t be what’s now with out the assistance I obtained from them in addition to the help gained from folks all around the world who’ve been supporting the expansion of my sport. Thanks all a lot!
