Hey, 🙂
today I added an achievement-system, 30 achievements, and worked on the Windows deployment.
From 9 to 12 august I will take a vacation in London. When I’m back I will work with 200% energy to release Grappling Hook as soon as possible!
Do you have any recommendations for my London-trip?
What should no one miss who visits London for the first time?

Hey, 🙂 I worked on the menu in the last days:

  • Picked a better font
  • designed the logo and the 2 most important menu-screens
  • started to implement a small UI-System for the game

This is the main-menu:

Grappling Hook - Main Menu

And this is screen, where you can see your progress in the game and select the level you want to play: ( Every level will have its own thumbnail in the final version)

Grappling Hook - Level Overview

Any suggestions? 🙂

I created a trailer of Grappling Hook:


Hope you like it. 🙂

The game is written in Java and I am using the jMonkeyEngine.

Tomorrow I will provide some more information about the technology behind the project.

I just installed WordPress, so this will be the website for all future games I will develop.

The working title for my current project is GHook. Tomorrow I will fill this website with more informations about GHook and the development.
