Update #5 - Playing with animals (warning: awesomeness), achievements and more

Hello again!
This week was a very special for us because we’ve implemented really great features. In a previous devlog update you could saw animal gadgets. Now we have something even better. Take a look:

Playing with animals
The player will be able to play with animals and have fun. There will be two special kinds of pets in the game: cat & dog. We are proud to present to you our killer stick feature! Any words are unnecessary, just see this gif:








Achievements
Other feature is a built-in achievements system with connection to Apple’s Game Center. We decided to make our own achievements panel to increase the user’s immersion and engagement during the play. Every achievement has 3 levels of difficulty and of course a reward. There will be a ton of achievements in the game, starting from the collecting fruits, constructing buildings finishing on playing with animals and more.




Animals panel
In our opinion the possibility to manage all players animals in an easy way is very important. Thus we implemented clean and simple window showing all valuable information with sort option. After clicking on the animal camera will focus on it.




Thanks for following us. We hope you will have as much fun as we during the development process!
See you next Wednesday.

Update #6 - Wheat field rebuilt, product orders and delivery truck

We can’t stop! More awesomeness in this update is coming.
From last Saturday (31.10) to today's Wednesday (04.11) we did:




Wheat field rebuilt
Previous version of wheat field was too simple in our opinion. It didn’t give “that feeling” of collecting crops. Thus we implemented almost new fields system: every field now has 9 small segments on which player will be able to seed different plants. Moreover harvesting system is now not a single tap/click, but player have to grab the scyther and manually cut all plants segments.
Take a look and please give us a feedback:




Product orders and delivery truck
This feature is really huge. First of all, there will be an orders table in the game. It will give player an information about every order for products. If any order can be completed, user can use a delivery truck to deliver it (thanks cpt. Obvious). Every order will be of course rewarded.
Take a look once again.




As you can see, we implemented only two features, but in our opinion they are awesome. New wheat fields improve user experience and product orders expand our game content.

#7 - Building extensions, decorations and wheel of fortune

Today is Saturday, so here we are again according to the plan and here is a new devlog update. We implemented following features from last Wednesday.

Building extensions
After a long brainstorm we decided to implement extensions to our buildings. The problem was with the map divided into slots. So from now there will be a special building type that can be constructed in the specified building's neighbourhood, on the same slot. For example: Dairy building can be extended by a Ice Cream Maker. This Dairy upgrade give player ability to produce ice creams.



Building decorations
The next great feature that we had problem with is decorating buildings mechanism. One lonely building on the slot looked sad and generally bad. Moreover we wanted to give players an opportunity to make their farm more unique. Thus we decided to implement decorating mechanism within a single slot. Now it is possible to place some beautiful decorations on the free space.
Isn't it great?





Casino & Wheel of fortune
Everyone of us has a little of gambler. The new building in the game is Casino. It will allow a player to try a luck in the Wheel of Fortune. There will be various items to win, moreover there will be a jackpot option too.



That is all for today. Tell us please what do you think about these features. Thanks, have a good day
