My last post was about the fantastic new Unity update, now though I am having some troubles. My first investigation of this allegorithmic substance integration caused unity to crash. So I open up Unity again and it crashed in roughly 30 seconds. So I tried one more time and it crashed again. This was Friday and I still have not been able to get unity to stay open more than 30 seconds when experimenting with the new features.
The funding for the next game also came through but Unity is being annoying and so I cannot purchase the necessary assets.
Anyways I have not received very much feedback regarding Treasure Hunt 2 and I would like to know how you are enjoying it, so can I ask if you have played Treasure Hunt 2 can you please leave your own little review in the comments section so I can make the necessary improvements!

There is plans for a brand new game which I will talk about in the next few days. I am going on holiday tomorrow but I will still be updating the blog so keep coming!

Yes to more epic features coming to Treasure Hunt 2 is lightmapping and the ability to save your game!
For people who are not quite sure what lightmapping is, it’s basically calculating shadows before the game is started and applying them to the landscape. This means you can have amazing looking shadows in the game without requiring a super computer to calculate them, my computer does that bit. After spending quite a while making the lightmaps this is what the game looks like.
I think it looks amazing and is a great improvement over the last game’s absence of shadows.
I have also been working on save games for the new game and its working! As the new game is so much harder and there is far more things to find I thought it would be very unfair to not have a save game. It’s not a text file with some data in it either it’s a fancy one that is very hard to hack, as hacking the save game would allow you to cheat in the game so I’m not allowing that!
Anyways thanks for reading and don’t forget to leave your comment below!

- 22 very difficult to find items
- Lightmapping and camera effects
- Hidden areas
- 4 square kilometres of free-roaming area

I may be a bit inactive this week as I’m busy with other things all week but I will keep you posted on what I’m up to. I have done more planning for the update which is getting bigger and bigger as time goes by. I decided to implement a story to give players a reason to go looking for things. This story is very early in design so not much is known about it.
On the development side many features are being implemented that as a player, you may not notice but they will really increase the games quality. One such feature I am looking into is lightmapping.
Some eagle eyed players may have noticed the lack of shadows in the first version, lightmapping will hopefully fix this problem. The downside to all this goodness is it will take longer to make the update but it will be well worth it!

I was working out all of the things in The new Treasure Hunt level and I wondered how many more things there are out there so I’m doing this little post to ask the public what would you like to see in the new level?
Leave your idea and your name in the comments below and your name will be in the credits even if your idea isn’t used! Yes that right your name will be in the credits. All you have to do is leave your idea for the new level and your name!
Hey people of the world, I have partnered up with some really cool guys that have made a new YouTube channel for putting up gameplay’s and gaming news. They have just started and don’t have many video’s but they are really funny! So check them out on there YouTube channel here and keep an eye on them for some cool stuff!
I don’t have much news on Treasure Hunt because of the work on this website I’m making, but I did start plans on a proper remake of Dead Lep Revenge which is going to much better. It will take a while to make because its going to have a lot of content, or that’s the plan!
Anyways thanks for reading and don’t forget to leave comments on your thoughts! It’s really easy and you don’t have to sign up to anything.
As the title suggests I have been making a website, not for myself though. I got hired to make one and I’m not enjoying it, it’s an ecommerce site for a craft shop and I am not making a website again. It’s very frustrating and I’m not actually a web developer.
I have been doing work on Treasure Hunt thankfully, I did out all the plans for the level and it is being slowly brought to life. I don’t want to reveal to much because then it will be too easy for you guys to find things, but there’s 17 things to find in the new level, which is 11 more than the last level! Also you will be given no clues to their whereabouts or even what they are, and to top it off the objects are hidden like there life depends on it! So expect to find it very difficult. I got some screenshots of the level after the ground texture has been applied.
This is still early in the level but I like to keep my readers updated. Any ways please leave comments on what you think about the changes in the new level! Oh and I nearly forgot I made a Facebook page for Peripheral games and I can’t figure out how to make like button on the page so if you have a Facebook profile please give us a like by clicking here.
Hello everyone, in case you wanted to know more about my computer, two days after I recovered it from the black screen of death I had another fatal error and had to reinstall the OS, again! Thankfully I had a backup, but isn’t my luck just rotten!
Anyways I have been planning out the new level for Treasure Hunt and the past two days I have started to create this new level. Its four times the size of the last level covering a massive 1,000,000 square meters! Unfortunately not all computers will run this level but I’m doing everything I can to decrease it’s required specs.
The level is a really big desert island, the plan is to have sand beaches all the way up to rich vegetation in the higher parts of the level. There will be caves to explore and plenty of things to find. this will take time though but be sure I will keep you updated all the way, for now thought I have some very early pictures of the level
As you can see its very early in development but as soon as I have an idea when it will be ready I will tell you! I am open to ideas for the level so if you have an idea for the level leave it in the comments and if I use it you will be in the credits!
