Updates on the development of coding puzzler Robo Instructus

A Reference For Humans

I'm that guy who quit his job to sit in his house making games. I'm currently working on robot engineering game Robo Instructus. For my previous weekly posts look here.

The Robo Instructus alpha stage continues. With the testers being fairly quiet this week I’m concentrating on my backlog of alpha features. Currently in the oven is a replacement for the available functions list which is currently just a generated comment in the players code.

This is a button you can press to show a list of the available functions with brief explanations. Unlike the current comments it’ll be presented more like markup, won’t be editable and will click through to more detailed documentation / tutorials.

It’s another small piece of the puzzle providing clarity and ease when looking up explanations of functions and code concepts. Having to re-read docs is going to be part of the early game for most so I’m trying to make it as painless as possible (not currently the case in alpha-1.4).

As I’m on holiday a bunch of this and next week progress is a little slower, this feature is still baking. So hold on and look out for this in the next alpha!

If you fancy being a part of Robo Instructus’ alpha testing get into contact with me using one of the methods on the front page.
