So, I finally finished all the main levels. Now I just have to do some extra stuff and fix some things. I didn’t remember to upload most of the gifs to a place where I could get a link to them so have some contextless garbage that I did as a joke.
Hopefully i’ll be doing some more fun stuff with this soon. Love you all, bye <3
Hey, so I am half way done with the final area in SSDT and I did a few other little changes.
I made it so that now SSDT has hit-scan bullets. There is also bullet spread now. I added this system to the enemies too.
I changed the text system to be more customization. It will be a little harder to work with but I think it will be worth it.
The last world is going to have different environments for each level. The first level was air ships. I think this level is pretty different to the other levels in the game.
The second level in this area is a "forest" I guess…
These levels didn’t take very long to make for having to make new textures for each one. I’m not really forcing myself to work on this anymore. I feel like this is making it go faster since I don’t get sick of it as much. Hopefully it wont be much longer until it is done. <3
The sound and graphics were very nice but the game play was very glitchy. When I tried sprinting it made two players. The camera was wierd. Sometimes it wouldn't fallow the player and when you walked over to the side of the screen it would jump over.
So, I got the fire world done. I wasn’t sure about it when I actually started working on it, but I think it is one of my favorite areas in the game.
I fixed some stupidity I did so that the player can now fall. I did something early on that made it so that the player would only be able to fall from higher than the normal level height.
I tried vertical level design which I think turned out well. It was pretty difficult compared to normal level design since I am not used to doing it, though.
A jumpy rock thing.
Deading jumpy rock things.
Large jumpy rock thing with cool looking meteor trail before I actually made the meteors do what they were suppose to.
I’m out of school so hopefully that means that I will be able to get more done. I will probably spend more time than usual on Grinnside since it’s the last world and I wan’t it to be really good.
Thank you for reading this and caring about SSDT if you do. <3
So, first of all. This took a lot longer that it should of! I didn't work on SSDT much for a while. Second of all, I don't have a lot of screenshots to show, because I used to upload gifs to a website that didn't have very good gif Support. I used google plus to upload them there. I then used it for here too. I stopped uploading gifs to that website so I stopped uploading to google plus. I didn't think of uploading stuff here though so I don't have a lot of the gifs. So, next time I'll remember to upload stuff to google plus.

So, I'm sorry about the big gap between update posts and the lack of cool stuff. I'll try to make the next update post better <3
I realized a while ago that I never fully explained SuperStarDreamTeam. I decided that now would be a good time to write about the game and explain some things that may have not been clear.
All the Characters
When I started SSDT in August of 2015 I never thought I would be working on it for as long as I have been. It was supposed to be a practice game to help me work on making platformers.

However, I am happy that this happened because my other project idea was not very good. The other idea I had was for a rouge-like. If I had worked on that it likely would have gotten lumped in with all the other indie rouge-likes that were being made at the time.
The game's scope was decreased a few times near the beginning. The original idea was to have 8 areas in the game. Each area would have 2 boss fights. After I started working on the first boss fight I realized that this was too many boss fight and decided that 1 per area would be much easier.
The game also originally was inspired by Undertale. It was going to have the option to kill all the enemies or not kill any of the enemies in each level. I soon realized that this would be really hard to design levels for and there would be very little incentive for people to do either option.
SSDT takes a lot of inspiration from games such as Mario and Luigi series, Castle Crashers, and Chicken Sword. This can be seen in many of the boss fights and characters.
First boss fight
I usually describe SSDT as a platformer/poor excuse for stealth game. I think this is a good explanation of it. A major mechanic of the game is its enemies. If they see you, you will likely die. This is because they shoot at you rapidly and can kill you in one shot.
You must sneak around them and attack them from behind to get past them. The problem with this is that their A.I is about as complex as a Super Mario Goomba. They will not respond to you making a bunch of noise, seeing other enemies that are dead, or seeing muffin rockets flying at them. This was done to give them an amount of predictability.
You are very quick and agile in the game. You have the ability to double jump and climb onto wall. You can pick up items to help yourself get through the levels.
The game will hopefully be released in late spring/early summer of 2017. The final game will contain 32 normal levels, a base area that changes throughout the game, and a secrete level.
I am not sure about a price yet but it will not be very expensive. Until then you can play a small demo I made that contains the first two levels of the game. I also plan on frequently posting updates and other fun things about the game for now on.
Thank you for reading. To stay updated on SSDT you can go to my twitter where I frequently post update. I post larger updates on SSDT's GameJolt and Itch.io pages. I have a website you can visit. It is not a very good website though. I'm hoping to keep up on it more. - Chippy
I realized I was kind of neglecting this SSDT page, so i'm going to start posting updates like I do on GameJolt. :D
Here is another update post!
First, I forgot to do an update so there is twice as much progress as usual. That is why there is a big jump in the percentage.
I also entered the 37th Ludum Dare while I was working on this. I got a bit sidetracked from that, but if you want to check out the game I made here is the Trailer.
Here is the SuperStarDreamTeam Stuff :D
This is my favorite thing I did.
I don't usually put music I make in these updates, but I really liked the one for this area.
That is all I have to show for now. Some of the levels didn't have an interesting "core feature" to show. That is why there is so little stuff for so much I got done.
Thank you for reading. - Chippy
