Last Dream Fishing Arcade Trailer

Posted by:

We have a significant update of the Last Dream Fishing Arcade trailer to show. Feedback from the team suggested a less frenetic pace, larger fonts showed for longer to make it more readable, and a bit less focus on menus. All of those changes have been implemented and the new (hopefully final) trailer has been created.

We’v successfully built the Last Dream Fishing Arcade for Windows, MacOS, and Linux and now we’re working our way through the Mobile builds for Android ...

It’s been a while since we’ve posted on the progress of the Last Dream Fishing Arcade, but we wanted to show you that we’ve been working on hard on its completion. The embedded video is very likely not the final version of the Last Dream Fishing Arcade trailer – it is only the first version – but it does demonstrate all the important aspects of the Last Dream Fishing Arcade that we wanted to show.

The Last Dream Fishing Arcade should ...

Godot 4 Migration: Tile Map Scripting

This post is the latest in a series that covers our migration from Godot 3 to Godot 4.

Last time, we converted our Tile Sets through a big export/import script. Let’s try the same thing for Tile Maps:

This tool is designed so you can just press a button and the listed Tile Map will be imported based on the json file. If you’re wondering how this works behind the scenes, the process is similar to the one described in the ...

Godot 4 Migration: Tile Set Scripting

This post is the latest in a series that covers our migration from Godot 3 to Godot 4.

The last post ended with a screenshot of the town of Ashwood, shown above. But what’s actually going on here? Well, “sprites” like the trees and rooftops seem to be mostly in the right place. But the Tile Map data is basically all gone. In fact, both Tile Maps and Tile Sets actually exist in the Scene data, but they have essentially had ...

Godot 4 Migration: Getting Started

This post is the first in a series that covers our migration from Godot 3 to Godot 4.

If you’ve been following Patreon closely, you’ve probably seen our post on converting the Last Dream Fishing Arcade from Godot 3 to Godot 4. Inspired by our success, we decided to convert Last Dream 2 (in its entirety) to Godot 4 as well. This is an ongoing project, and is much bigger than it may at first appear.

Let’s start with the basics. It’s ...

We’ve reached a major milestone in the development of the Last Dream Fishing Arcade. Our graphic artist has completed all of the art for the fish! In addition, all fish have been animated and incorporated into the game.

We’re continuing our work to migrate the existing game from Godot v3 to v4.1. We’re happy to report that the “Flying Fish” showed in an earlier video have been fixed. The issue was that physics overrides were not properly turned on after ...

Tales of SideQuest: Mr. Fighter vs. Mania Dhaos

Tales of SideQuest: Mr. Fighter vs. Mania Dhaos

“Tales of SideQuest” entries cover various misadventures at White Giant RPG Studios’ “SideQuest” tournaments. These posts provide a look int our company culture, and typically do not have any content related to Last Dream development.

Well, we’re back from SideQuest 2023, and gearing up for some hefty Last Dream 2 development. In the meantime, you may recall that this year’s tournament featured the game Tales of Phantasia for the PSX, and our patented (not really) “Penalty Card” system. Here’s a snapshot ...
