While Auto Fire is my main passion, it’s always fun to do something just because it’s damn fun. I had this past week off from my day job, and here I thought I’d be diving deep into more car combat as always, but something drew me to start messing around with an old Ludum Dare project I did several years ago, at the time called Cardinal Cell.
Giving it some groove and turning it into Skate Knight was quite a blast. I learned a bunch about Unity’s 2D tileset system and their new UI system. Then I dipped my toe into some tweaks to make things match the BPM of the new disco-y soundtrack. I still have a ways to go, in particular I need to build some more stages, but the foundation is now laid.
The best part is that you just need a browser to play. I’ve been playing it for five years now, it’s a fun little diversion for a quick break!
Is this a distraction from Auto Fire? A little, but we could all use a reset from time to time. I’m looking forward to doing more Auto Fire even more refreshed than before.
