So carosaure and I have been secretly (not so secretly) working on a puzzle game together we are currently calling ‘Space Beans’ (Note: title will totally change before we’re done). Caro recently went back to the drawing board on the graphic style for the game and came up with THIS AWESOME NEW LOOK and we’re both super happy with it. This is still just mockup/test stuff (though I do have a totally functioning prototype right now) so it might change 10 times before we’re done.
Also, it might LOOK like a ‘match 3’ game, but it’s very much not! The empty space in the grid is used to shift blocks around to try and make complete rows/columns of specific colours. Similar to slide-puzzles but less infuriating because you don’t have to line up the entire board, just a row/column. You gain any crafting materials that are on the blocks you clear and use those to craft gear for your little space captain in the top left (along with unlocking new crafting materials/abilities/challenges).
