- It’s time for the June Breakdown of Hay Ewe!
Here, we’ll be listing all changes made to the game over the course of the month.
What better way than to give a tour of the game from start to finish!
Concept of space-wide introduction – If we have our way, Hay Ewe will reach all corners of the galaxy! Sort of…
Once the game loads, we’re taken to a new title screen – Its possible we’ll start in space and end up zooming all the way down to the farm stage of Hay Ewe, though title screen segments are still W.I.P.
Either way, players will have to make a cloudy pit-stop along the trip 🙂
From there, you can roam around all the features, or dive right into the game.
Speaking of features, there’s been even more improvements to Ewe-Tube!
Not only has the artwork been upgraded, but it now offers a wealth of short and informative tutorials for every interactable object, every cast member, and anything that has an effect on your lamb-saving adventure. Everything discovered in-game will unlock on Ewe-Tube for player inspection.
Your farmputer gives access to Ewe-Tube, the Baa-rbotique, and Amoozon!
To unlock Ewe-Tube, you need a computer and some disks…
Well, birds are dropping candy all over the farm – So who dropped all this hardware!?
Matilda using the sheep-net to order in new hats… *sigh*
Keep those eyes peeled for disks and other items scattered all over the area…
They might just unlock extra content 🙂
Once done browsing the sheepish-net, it’s off to the new map-screen to plot your adventure.
Last month we showed a concept image – This month, it is fully active and animated.
There are plenty of forks in the path for players to make their own choices.
The map-screen is alive and waiting for Matilda to choose where to go,
with hanging buckets swinging in the breeze and mills grinding the daily toil.
Zoom in & out to check the landscape, or watch Matilda do a dance when you beat a level!
Progress is logged, ranked, and visually represented on each level node.
It is visually clear to see where you have been, where you haven’t been, or where you could backtrack to improve on rankings or search for more un-lockables, bonuses, and items.
Icons & Fonts have been improved across the board. Even tiny changes make big improvements!
Lastly – Fonts, icons and all the ‘little details’ have also been revamped across the entire game.
There have also been more art & animation improvements to assets, characters, and screens…
Too many to list! *gasp* But we’ll be sure to compile them for the next edition!
It’s been a great month for Hay Ewe – And it’s going to be even better by the next one!
Tune in next week as we’ll be introducing a cast member who takes no bull from anyone 😉
