"Wanderlust Adventures" Developer's Log - 1

We wanted to keep you guys up-to-date on the work we have been doing for "Wanderlust 2", so we are going to start a series of Developer's Logs to catalog our progress.  

Please keep in mind that all of the images in these posts are WIP, most of them being mockups or early prototypes, so these things will likely change during the course of development.

Matt and I began working on redesigning some of the features in Rebirth that got the most complaints, which includes the hud/navigation.

First, a complete revision of the interface. Now the menus will be similar to more modern games like Borderlands, Diablo, Guild Wars 2, etc. Players will now have a central menu to easily navigate all of their important information:

Next up, Matt changed how NPC's communicate with your player and the world around them. We decided to get rid of the big chat boxes, and go with a more "comic book" like effect. Also notice the re-pixel-drawn clouds...

We should have more information in the coming days, so stay tuned!
