[DevLog] The Shepherd - One tap platformer based on Luke 15

Hey everyone!! We're a small upcoming indie studio bringing our vision to life and people to Christ. (Has a nice ring to it.) We want to give you all a quick breakdown of The Shepherd, and we hope you all stick with us on this journey.

What is The Shepherd?
The Shepherd is a one tap pixel platformer based on Luke 15:3-7, (Parable of the Lost Sheep). You must help our hero, Shep the Shepherd, finesse difficult obstacles while searching for his lost sheep that wandered off and is now captured.

Gameplay features?
  1. Just tap the screen to jump. (Seems simple enough. )
  2. LOTS of spikes to dodge and finesse
  3. Platforms get harder to jump on as game progresses

When will the game release?

September 28 (estimate) [I know that's crazy and really soon, but we think it's crazy enough to work.]

What platform?

iOS first, then Android

Current progress so far
  1. Working prototype/engine
  2. Sprites for Shep and are done

What needs to be completed?
  1. Clean up and tweak sprites for main menu, background, and other characters (?)
  2. Tweak the level design
  3. Add music and sounds

Current Goal
Finish Alpha or Beta at the end of August


If you managed to read all of this THANK YOU, stay tuned for daily to weekly updates, and give feedback on our progress so far. God bless!
