Week 12: New home page, and particle effect!

I made a new home page! Check it out! I felt that for a visitor to the site, a wall of text wouldn’t be so interesting. I thought it would be more interesting to have a short description of the game, along with screenshots and video. Information about the game, yay! Please comment and let me know what you think, especially if you have any suggestions for improving the new home page :)

Regarding development on the game itself, I’ve added an effect on the leading player with a minimum score. I made a simple particle system that uses my animation system (along with the animations pool for better memory usage). Here’s a video showing how it looks in the game! Hopefully this will help the leading player stand out, so it will be more noticeable that somebody is getting closer to winning, and other players will target the leading player…

Also in the video is a happy accident… I set the particle animation to loop instead of dispose, and that’s what happened. Funny little things like this tend to happen while making games – I thought I would share this particular one :)
