Little Nemo Brainstorming Podcast #25: Moving Forward
over 1 year ago – Sun, Nov 14, 2021 at 12:24:18 AM

Hey Dreamers! Adrian here!

In this week's episode, Ben and Chris discuss the next steps for the game moving forward as we begin wrapping up our vertical slice! We discuss ways to make our level making pipeline smoother, finishing Peony's move set, levels and systems we need to build out next, and more! We also discuss our plans for distributing the vertical slice to publishers and other venues as well.

While listening to this week's episode, you may notice a distinct lack of... well, me. That's because my recorded audio has seemed to malfunction this week, so apologies for that! I've edited around the episode as I didn't feature too heavily this time around regardless so the absence should hopefully not be noticeable, but in case you're wondering where I wandered off to this week, that's what happened. I should have those kinks ironed out by next week! Also heads up that there's a lot of background noise this week, particularly at the beginning, which I was unfortunately not able to rectify.

Until next time Dreamers,

Little Nemo Brainstorming Podcast #24: AKA The Metroid Dread Episode
over 1 year ago – Thu, Nov 04, 2021 at 02:38:49 PM

Hey Dreamers, Adrian here!

As the title mentions, this week's episode was inspired by Chris and I's recently playthrough of Metroid Dread. Specifically, it got me thinking about how we should approach hiding, and challenging players who search for extra content in the game. For us, this includes things that enhance your abilities such as health upgrades or recipes for the kitchen to optional content such as comics that you find to add to the in-game gallery. Metroid Dread's hidden pick ups are all character upgrades and many are hidden behind optional challenges that test your dexterity such as the infamous shinespark puzzles, so we ask; what kinds of challenges should our hidden items be? Should they be completely based around exploration and observation, or should some of them test other skills such as the aforementioned dexterity? Or do we mix and match depending on the type of item that it is? Here our thoughts in the new episode! And in case it wasn't obvious, spoilers for Metroid Dread abound in this episode.

Of course there's also plenty of talk about our general feelings about Dread (spoilers: we liked it) and what we took from the over all experience. We had a lot of fun recording this one and I hope you have as much fun listening! Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments or on Discord!

Until next time Dreamers,

Little Nemo Brainstorming Podcast #23: We're back!
over 1 year ago – Thu, Oct 28, 2021 at 08:40:41 AM

Hey Dreamers! Adrian here.

After our brief hiatus, we're back with our newest episode of the brainstorming podcast! Our main focus for this episode is on how we plan to keep players from getting lost when exploring our non-linear levels and how to know where to go when they return to earlier levels. This is an issue many modern exploratory platformers and Metroidvanias struggle with and something we're thinking about very hard about. 

Listen/download here! 

Thank you all for your patience. We're so excited to be back and have a lot of plans for future episodes. As always, let us know what you think in the discord, and let us know if there's anything about the game you want know about and would like to hear us discuss!

Until next time Dreamers,

~ Adrian & Team Nemo
