Programming a New Input System – Indie Devlog Series

This week I’m reworking the way Lengend Bowl handle inputs from the player. Up until now, the game was restricted to only one player and the controller scheme was basic at choosing how to handle inputs from gamepads and keyboards.

The plan this week is to start rebuilding the input system to dynamically detect input no matter what gamepads or keyboard accessories are pressed. This is the foundation to moving towards the game having local 2 player action, so can’t wait to play the game with another human to see how things play out!

Lastly, the Legend Bowl Steam store page needs to get a video on there finally. It’s been too long and I roll up my sleeves to work on a wishlist trailer for the page. Hope you like it enough to wishlist the game!

Tech Demo Releasing Soon

Hey everyone!  I know I’ve been quiet lately with the posts and news on Legend Bowl, but I have some good news coming very soon to share with you today.

The main reason why I’ve been so quiet is because I’ve been working hard on the game and trying to get some type of basic gameplay built.

The goal was to have a working demo with basic gameplay to get a feel for the game and begin the polishing stages to make the game fun and rewarding.  I’m very close to having a alpha demo out that shows off the gameplay and let’s you play through a complete match with stat tracking and basic playcalling.

I’m excited to get this moving and bring you more news as the game progresses.  There will be videos on my YouTube channel, as well as QJB’s channel, so stay tuned!

Here are some new pics of the game to wet your appetites!
