Dev Diary #23: Choices, Choices

How do we create a new game in the Cally’s Caves series that feels fresh and changes things up?  The first 3 games in the series were very light on story, and although we were able to plant some seeds for future story ideas, we could take the plot for Cally’s Caves 4 anywhere.  This dev diary will go over some of the decisions we’ve made to make Cally’s Caves 4 stand apart from our previous games.

Setting

All 3 Cally’s Caves games took place in “the Caves,” a place that started in Cally’s backyard and gave us a good amount of variety to work with.  The story of Cally’s retaking of the Caves has now been told, and we want to take the environments in Cally’s Caves 4 in some new directions.  Instead of taking place in one interconnected Cave system, Cally’s Caves 4 takes place all across the globe, in facilities owned by the Golden Skull Society (more on the G.S.S. later).

Cally’s Caves 4 Update

Happy 2017!  We are working relentlessly on the next Cally game, and wanted to post a quick update on where we are at with the project.

Back to Cally’s Caves 4 – After seeing the developers of Super Cat Bros. go through some name troubles, we’ve decided to change the name back to Cally’s Caves 4.  It’s better safe than sorry when it comes to the game name and creating marketing/promotional material.

Over half of the enemies are done – we’ve been working non-stop to create some enemies that change the status quo for the Cally games, and so far we are done the art and code for over half of the enemies!

Beta will be starting soon – Come join the Cally Discord if you want to help us test the game!

We are now working on some of the bosses and remaining enemies.  The Soundtrack is 80% done. The in-game dossier/wiki system is done.  So much of the game is done!  But there is still a lot left to do, so it’s time to get back to work.
