    I hate doing UI but today i am kinda proud of myself!
    You can now view your blobs in 3D in the menu and rotate them.



    Technical:
    It's done with a camera rendering to a target texture which is displayed in the UI.
    All blobs and the camera are on a separate layer.

    very interesting because there is some strategy that you need to care about, its not only attack like pokemon for instance. you really need to think and plan what you gonna do, it's very cool! I like the animations, maybe the UI, the blue backgroung on panels are a little strange, I don't know. but its awsome on general. Oh I like somuch the idea that the master come close to his blob to have a conversation and pass instruction, its funny, but later on game, I suggest to this master just yell actions, for evolved pets for instance, becuase they already knows to fight and need to focus, just my opinion haha.

    Thank you for your feedback and ideas! UI isn't my strong point and often it tells. But i really give my best and i hope i can improve it even further!
    Yes there is strategic apsect to the battle especially when you have more than one enemy and mutiple blobs in your team! Because of that i also do not like if someone says "Battle system like Pokemon" - they are different:)! Ithink the trainer getting near is really cute but maybe for variety i will later add also the yelling part. We will see:)!

    After playing the last tech demo some of you left me feedback that it's very difficult to place things straight.

    I listened to your feedback and tried to improve it!Now you can turn a grid on and off and objects snap to it.

    Here are some new impressions for you:

    Anglerfish blobs love to chill at the beach at night.

    And the moon looks unusual... what could be happening in Clover Town!?

    Did you know that you can create your own unique blobs with breeding?
    That's one of my personal creations:

    Only two days left to try the current tech demo!

    Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!
    Inspired by it i created the Spooky Moon Festival in Ova Magica!



    You can collect candy and trade it for cool prices! But be careful! The town is also overrun by wild blobs...

    So bug catching can be challenging in Ova Magica!
    A son of one of my twitter followers had a very nice idea:

    "If the pets could help catching insects, that would be really handy"

    So i implemented the new blob ability "Sound wave". It confuses insects so they dont escape when you approach.




    I also created a blob advent calendar ♥ !
    Follow me on Twitter for daily reveals!

    Day 1: Cow blob
    It's not very strong in battle, but it can produce fresh milk.

    Day01.gif


    Day 2: Penguin blob
    This friendly, but also a little clumsy blob, feels most comfortable in the winter season Frigus.

    I added the new blob ability "Stomp".
    Now it is much easier to hoe all the soil.
