July 12th, 2018 Update: Building the West

Hey everybody,

We hope everybody has been enjoying the warm weather! Getting to wear T-shirts, going to the beach, having mosquitoes buzz around your ears at night… It’s great. Now, for the update:

The first town that you find yourself in, is complete, visually. The name of the town is Pickton. A number of businesses can be found in the area.

A typical general store for all your needs and Tony’s Tavern, a local favorite to drown in alcohol.

If you’re wondering why the player is naked, it’s because the clothing system is still in the works. As well as the weapon UI.

We’ve also created a fading script that triggers if the player is behind an object. This is to allow you to see where your character is at all times and can help you during combat situations. Speaking of combat, we are almost complete with our combat system! We have decided to only include four directions visually but you’ll still be able to move in eight directions. This is because, creating sprites for eight directions would be madness with all of the clothing and customization options we are planning to include. The player has two sets of animations, the regular walking and when they pull out a pistol.

The next update will be in video format and you’ll get to see cool footage!

That is all for today, thank you for reading!

Website Launch & General Update

Website Launch & General Update

Hey everyone,

Welcome to Manifest Destiny’s official website! We apologize for not updating you sooner but we have been busy. It’s exam season for our lead programmer Obsession which, unfortunately, took a lot of his free time to work on the game. On my end, I’ve been working with jestan, our artist, to create some very important assets. The first town that you start the game in is almost complete visually thanks to jestan’s incredible talent!

I’ve also outlined most of the major factions that we plan to include in the game as well as writing key characters that you will meet. This was possible with the help of Charlie and KennedyToole.

There are currently four planned factions that you will be able to interact with and join. If your convictions don’t align with theirs you can undermine their efforts and ultimately, destroy them.

That is all for today, thank you for following our project. We can’t wait to show you footage.
