Devlog – Items and Crafting

By |2020-02-12T15:25:16+01:00February 12th, 2020|Uncategorized|2 Comments

So, I have to admit that we've had a devlog over on Steam for quite some time. You can flip through there for some more neat screenshots and info. Today though, we are going to discuss: Items Items, items, items. Any game with extensive crafting really does revolve around them, and it is therefore of the essence that the underlying systems governing and presenting them to the player rest on solid foundations. Ours, we like to think, do. Items in Hammerting are defined primarily in two ways, through their "Modifiers", and through their "Classifications". Rather than being hard [...]

HAMMERTING ANNOUNCED! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpC1MDmrS1E I am SO excited! This is the game we have been working on all this time. This game, and its engine. I know there is no gameplay in the trailer, but you can see a (terribly hastily done) gameplay trailer and some screenshots in Steam or Itch.io, take a look! If you like it, adding it to your wishlist would make us very happy. The homepage is here: https://hammerting.com/ Places to Reach Us We would love to have conversations with players during the development of this game. Both because that increases the chances of more people [...]

Warpzone Studios Recruits Daniel Ottosson!

By |2019-02-25T16:10:30+01:00February 25th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

If you have kept a close eye on our homepage for changes, you may have noticed I made a stealthy update on our about page recently. We are now a four person team! Daniel joined our ranks in the beginning of January, which means our art is now improving at an almost breakneck speed. (No overtime!) He fits right in, is a one-man stop for everything art related, and I would LOVE to show you what he is working on right now, but we have an announcement coming up, and it can wait until then. :) I'll just post this [...]

Joining the Sting Incubator

By |2018-04-24T16:00:38+02:00April 24th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

We have been talking with the friendly folks over at Sting for some time, and after talking with other game studios they are working with, we decided they would be a good fit for us. They liked us too, so we joined forces! The startup magazine Breakit wrote a short blurb on the joining companies here: article. What is Sting? Sting is an incubator in Stockholm, Sweden that helps start-ups in a lot of different industries. Now, what can they help us with? It's not going to be the making of the game, but there are a LOT of things surrounding [...]

Registering for Steam Direct – the Guide

By |2017-11-27T09:00:01+01:00November 24th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Signing up for selling games via Steam is easier now than ever before. Before Greenlight, Steam had an internal vetting process. You could get (and did get) turned down if your game did not seem promising enough. With Greenlight, you had to appeal to the public instead. Now with Steam Direct you can just give Steam info, pay the fee, and you are in. I just did that, and I found a few bits of the process somewhat confusing at first, so I thought I should share that with you, and maybe you can have an easier time. This is going [...]

The Convention Manual

By |2017-10-09T14:43:46+02:00March 23rd, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

As an indie game developer, going to a game convention is a great way to meet your prospective audience, test the game with actual players, note their reaction, meet the press and socialize with fellow devs. I've been to some conventions before and loved it, but never with the task of manning a booth, and never with my own studio. In preparation for that, I decided to write a guide. The guide turned out fairly comprehensive, so I decided to share it with you. Before Book everything you can, as early as you can. First off the tickets and or [...]

Hashtable Implementation Using Cuckoo Hashing

By |2016-11-01T11:58:59+01:00November 1st, 2016|Algorithms, C++|0 Comments

Background A hashtable is one of a select few datastructures that take the center spotlight when coding games. Other often encountered structures are vectors/dynamic arrays (of course), ring buffers and intrusive linked lists.  I will post about some of them in the future, but today is all about our hashtable implementation! In this post I will present Cuckoo hashing, which we use to implement our hashtable. Cuckoo hashing gets its name from the cuckoo family of birds, where many species lay eggs in other species nests. When a cuckoo chick hatches, it pushes other eggs/chicks out of the nest and gets all [...]
