Thank you soupDev I love you :D
Baking Up A Storm! Bonnie's Bakery DLC Progress Update!
Goodness, an update! Who would've thought?
(You can actually see these updates and more if you follow our twitter!)
Yes, it's been a while since we've done a proper devlog over here on itch.io, so we figured it was time to get everyone on the same page! How's the DLC going, you ask? Well, that's what we're here to answer!
Over these past few weeks, we've made a lot of progress! Here are some of the things you can look forward to that have already been completed:
- Quality of life updates in the baking section! We've done a few things to make the baking process a little less tedious, such as. . .
- Making the ingredients visible in the mixer! As you can see from one of the update videos linked in this devlog, you can now see what ingredients you've already put in the mixer! Hopefully this will make things a little less confusing! Speaking of ingredients, we've also added. . .
- Clicking instead of dragging! We've made it so you can click the ingredients to put them in the mixer instead of dragging them over! We found that this makes the cooking process much more streamlined!
- Recipe book rehaul! The recipe book has also gained a massive improvement! You can now flip through the recipes and tear off whatever page you need! This will make it so you don't have to keep opening and closing the recipe book when you're trying to make something!
- Pausing functionality! That's right, you can pause now!
- Speedrun strats! Yes, you can now speedrun Bonnie's Bakery if you'd like! Rather than losing score when you fail a customer in story mode, you now lose some time! This means you can purposefully fail customers to speed through the cooking if you find it too tedious!
- And finally. . . Endless mode! For those of you who wanted to cook more and get spooked less, we've made an endless cooking mode! In endless mode, you have a lives system instead of a timer, so you can keep cooking to your heart's content! (Until you run out of lives, of course!) Also, if you survive endless mode for long enough, you may be able to unlock some special extra content!
Phew! That was a lot to cover! But wait, there's more! While these features aren't finished yet, they are in progress and will also be available when the DLC releases! Here's what we're still working on:
- Another new game mode! That's right! Endless mode isn't the only game mode we're releasing for this DLC! You can see a sneak peek of it in one of the preview videos linked in this devlog! We won't go into too much detail to keep it a surprise, but let's just say Bonnie needs to get her ingredients from somewhere. . .
- A settings menu! Mundane, but important to have for a game! In the settings, you'll be able to adjust the volume, resolution, and mouse sensitivity!
- Bug fixes! As we work on the game, those nasty bugs are bound to rear their adorable, yet ill-intended heads our way! You fix a bug and then three more take their place! The battle never ends! But, we will do our best to squash them all for the upcoming release!
And that's what we've got so far! Once again, we'd like to thank everyone who's shown their love and support for our game, whether you've made fanart, videos, or you just play and like our game! We've put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into making Bonnie's Bakery, and it's so wonderful to see that our efforts have paid off! See you all in the next update!
