Development

This game is programmed by me and the art and music are done by other partners of Cosmic Sky games. At the time of developing this game Unity did not had tilemap editor support. Because of this I used Tiled to layout all the levels and tiled2unity to import the map files over to Unity. All the dialogue in the game can be loaded in by JSON, XML or scriptable objects so if needed the game can be translated in multiple languages. There are 5 bosses in the game with different behaviors during the fight. To switch between the attacks I used a code pattern called State Machines.
