     Showcasing the game to new folks, meeting other developers, learning from their experiences, making friends, and dancing my legs off. That's the TL;DR of my Orlando Overdrive experience this past weekend. 

     Battle Gem Ponies had a booth right in the middle of the indie game hallway leading to the bar & dance floor of The Geek Easy. Turns out the whole brony thing wasn't a passing fad, and lots of people still smile when they see marshmallow horses with super powers. 

     Check out this week's devlog to see how the indie showcase went. 👾 - www.yotesgames.com

I'm Yotes and I am an independent game developer.
You may know me as the creator of Adventures in Equica currently working on Battle Gem Ponies

Check out my website yotesgames.com where I type up weekly game progress and host links to every game I've made.

I have a dream of bringing my game ideas to life, and I'll do whatever it takes to make that happen. I post my gamedev adventures everywhere because I want to show that it is possible to do anything you dedicate yourself to doing. Follow along, and you may end up inspired the same way other young developers have inspired me.

You can find me all over the web:
YouTube | Twitter | Facebook | Tumblr
MyIGN | IndieDB | Gamasutra | Imgur
Patreon | EQD & MLP Forums | Relic Castle

And you can get my games on:
Google Play | App Store | Amazon Apps | Itch.io | SlideME

Just powering through and coding my heart out. Nothing to show yet, but things are progressing behind the scenes.

     Working towards that Minimum Viable Product with a few days to go til showtime! Pretty much every feature from the last demo needs to be remade and bug free using the new development tools I have. The next demo has to be ready by Saturday morning, or I'm going to have to introduce countless strangers and fellow devs to my buggy pre-alpha from December! 

     Can't let that happen. It's crunch time. Check out the devlog.

     A lot of time has been spent remaking the components needed to make the game run smoother and look nicer. Way more time than I originally intended, but I feel too deep into the mess to turn back now. The results are showing, but it seriously delayed the game's progress and the makeover still isn't complete. 

    I'm hoping that with these menus out of the way and all the fancy scripting stuff simplified into usable tools, the post-alpha development will come easy. Much like a house, the game's gotta have good bones. A foundation to build an entire series of games on top of, actually. Each one more polished than the last.

Read more on the blog.

     Another week in and the game's revamped menu systems still aren't done! Feels like I'm running in place sometimes, but week after week new things are being added and I'm feeling more and more capable as a developer. I just want the alpha build done already!

     Take a look at what I managed to do this past week. (The Yotes Games Blog

     Menus, menus, menus... Looking fresh though. Still going through the process of making sure all the interfaces work and feel better than ever before. Cleaner sprites, dynamic sizing and positioning for every possible device, and helpful new tools like scrollviews and shaders to add some extra polish. Plus, it all runs 40 times smoother now since it gets compressed to one draw call at runtime, meaning no more horrendous lag just from opening a menu!

There won't be any character customization in BGP. All the ponies will be designs by me.

Thank you! It's been a pretty good week. Finally made a nice group of friends so I'll always have something to do any given week here in Orlando.
