Bamsing - Day 3: Content and tutorial

What happened in Day 3 of finishing The prototype of Bamsing.

Day 3

Hi, My name is Pontus Lindgren @happypwn on Twitter. I’m 3 Days in onfinishing this prototype of my game Bamsing.

What did I do on Day 3?

Today I added more content, in the form of level, story and a tutorial

The hard thing about level design, story and characters is that you have to implement it in a way that feels natural to the player. If you want to drive the story forward you might want to use a certain character to tell that story point. But it also has to make sense for that character to say those thing. Therefore you have to create personalities, backstories and more so you can really get to know these characters. And if you do these things properly soon you’ll have an alive and explorable world. Which I think brings a lot of value to an adventure game.

And I am also putting in a lot of weight into teaching the player basic game mechanics by incorporating those lessons into the story arch. Rather than have a big “TUTORIAL” menu choice in the beginning. I think its turning out good, but I’ll have to let someone test it so I can know what needs to be fixed.

See you tomorrow!

How can you help?

You can help by providing feedback, I would love to hear absolutely any thoughts you have about the game.

And by following company in any of its outlets as well <3:
