Dev Diary 015: Match 3 Invaders with Music and Glossy Shaders

Match 3 InvadersMatch 3 InvadersI'm back again with an updated version of Match 3 Invaders. This time I added background music (not my own composition, but rather one by a composer named "Data" that was included in the Audiodraft Music pack 1 (free in assets store). It's a really fun, chiptune that seems to fit the mood perfectly. Indeed, it's amazing to me how much more fun the game becomes with the track playing.

I also added a little text pop up to let you know when you score a chain bonus (anything beyond a match 3). That adds some fun, too, since you can't help but try to get the biggest chain possible. While I was fooling around the assets store, I also downloaded a shaders pack. The results aren't as good as I was hoping given the samples, but I still they think they make the game look more polished.

Thrust Lifter OST

Thrust Lifter: You salty dawg...Thrust Lifter: You salty dawg...Matt's Valentine's Day Preparation Guide.

First off, stop playing Thrust Lifter. I know it's hard...VERY HARD. But this is Valentine's Day. It's about HER, not rescuing the Chilenoids. I'm not even going to provide a link to the game. Hey, don't click on that!

Now that you're NOT playing videogames, let's set the stage for a wonderful Valentine's Day.

Step 1. Breakfast in bed. How about some heart-shaped waffles? Don't even think about fake butter, buddy.
Step 2. Say: "I had an amazing dream last night. Then I woke up next to someone even more amazing."
Step 3. What's that? A box of chocolates! Nice. But say: "Chocolate is great. But let's face it...Mr. Hershey never tasted your lips."
Step 4. Present your clipboard. "I made a list of everything that's great about you. Let's begin with item #00000001."
Step 5. Hold on a minute! No background music??? ZOMG, you fool!!! Download Thrust Lifter OST on your iPod NOW!!!

Thank Gawd I'm here to save your marriage.
Download the Thrust Lifter OST right now.

Thank me when you have 4.5 children and a dog to fetch your slippers.

What's the soundtrack to your arcade life?

ArcadeBack in the late 70's and early to mid 80's, arcades were the place to be. It was a time when there was a noticeable difference between what could be played in public and what you were playing at home. Once consoles and computers started to match the power and complexity of their arcade counterparts, there just wasn't a reason to pry your butt off the couch to get your video game fix.

It's sad really.. because there was a magic to the classic arcades.. a social dynamic that has been lost. Sure, some arcades still exist but they aren't the same- most are just a mess of dancing games, guitar games and redemption machines. And you might say that online multiplayer games with TeamSpeak adequately fill the void left by the arcades.. but I would argue against that. The spectators, high scores, trash talking, lining your quarters up on the marquee, the soda stained floors, the deafening din of the machines, and the music.. oh, the music. It was the soundtrack for your life.

What was the soundtrack for your "arcade" life?
