Hello everyone and welcome to the development blog for Codename Allnight. My name is Isaiah and I am the sole developer of Codename Allnight. These blogs will talk about the issues and strides that come up on the way to the completion and release of Allnight.
For starters, Allnight has been in development for a little over a year. And was originally supposed to release earlier this year. However, after the final testing of the game it just was not ready for official release. Instead, I planned a new approach to the next of the game’s development and called it “Phase 2”. More about Phase 2 will be explained in the next blog.
How Codename AllNight got its Name
The title “Codename Allnight” comes from the original reason why the game was even started. Originally, I wanted a simple run-n-gun I could play to give myself brain breaks from developing one of my now scrapped projects. It was titled, “Project Allnight” because the original goal was to develop the game in one night. Once the simple run-n-gun “Project AllNight” was finished, the engine designed for Codename Allnight was easier to deal with( in terms of editing the code), better for overall game-play, and I favored the concept around the game. Within days the other project was scrapped and “Project Allnight” began getting deeper concepts. Eventually, due to the story line in the game the title was changed to Codename Allnight. To figure out why that is you will have to uncover the truth for yourself.
Vision/Mission of Game
As mentioned before, the initial purpose of the game was a simple run-n-gun. That is still the purpose, if you as the player wishes you can run around shooting until the ammo drops to zero. The primary mission of the game is to bring my company S.A.V.G(Some Average Video Game) to life and bring attention towards it. The vision of the game, is to provide a game with hours of entertainment in a little low-fi package. The game is meant to be simple so it can be picked up anytime. However, it can get much more complicated than that whether you choose to follow the storyline to, uncover the truth and for its exclusive gear or, decide to try to inhabit the world, settling down, and building a setup that can protect from the dangers of the Neo-Colonies. In other words, you are supposed to be able to do what you want.
