Just wanted to post a video of our final C2 project to show off the platforming engine one last time! Battle Princess Madelyn is a prototype made in C2 as a proof of concept for a game we are currently working on. It was made by myself and JayJay and is being made at the request of my daughter who is a big fan of Ghouls N Ghosts and the big scary bosses it contains. We announced the game a couple of weeks ago on my daughters 5th b-day
My daughter wanted to be in Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and fight “Green Head”, I said it was someone else’s game but I could make her one that was like it. Then she said “But girls can’t be knights, Daddy. Only boys…” to which I answered “Pshh…What color do you want your armor to be?”. The answer was pink 😉 And that’s how this game started. My daughter Madelyn loves the first stage of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and makes me play it over and over because she want’s to see me fight “Green head”, the Shielder boss at the end of the first stage. It’s not hard for her to twist my rubber arm as it’s been my favorite game since it came out years ago.
So here we are almost a year after I started tinkering with the graphics to a full blown polished prototype. We have all of the pieces in place with this one! A beautiful movie quality sound track. An actual cut scene artist. And oh yeah – a children’s Author to co-write the game plot and dialog with me (this is based on a story I wrote when I was 9 year old… it needs heavy editing 😉 ). We’re going to take our time on this and not give a release date until we are satisfied that we will hit no snags with development.
On that note only the prototype has been done in C2. The final game is being done in another engine due to portability and speed. The interface for C2 has been absolutely fantastic and I will miss the speed it granted me to flesh out my ideas. I will however continue to build my art in it as I've become rather fond of the editor.
So here is our final video, the entire prototype (minus showing off all of the weapons and powers). Enjoy
