Thanks Rory, I'm glad you liked it! I've just started an indiedb page for the game here:

Go!Go!Maddi IndieDB game page.

I'll do more detailed updates and post my videos there from now on instead of youtube. Not a fan of the youtube quality.

A quick update - Watch out tomorrow for a possible beta demo :) It won't have any music and the sound is about 60% done. But the two stages (although a tiny bit buggy still) are almost 100% complete. I just finished added post boss fight level bits and will continue to do so tonight. Not sure if the cut scene for between level 1-3,2-1 will make it into the demo but if I have lots of free time to myself tomorrow it may.

So far after the boss is defeated, he sinks under the water (massive slow down because of bubble overkill lol!) a set of stairs rise up from under the water and take you to the platform above leading out of the cave.

The music has been stripped now since I can't post others copyrighted bits on Indie DB. That will be done in the next while. I tried to go at it last night but I just wasn't feeling it yet. I also can't get the right instrument set which is another issue. So if anyone knows how I can get like a good Sunset Riders, Castlevania 4+ or Super Contra instrument set that would be great. Maybe something harp like too for the forest - that needs to be more melodic.

So anyhow keep watching my IndieDB page over the next few days for the demo!! Should be tomorrow night at the latest but if my day gets rammed with other things it may be some time on Monday.

***EDIT***
The demo has been uploaded to the above link and is awaiting approval. They're usually pretty quick about the turn around so it should be avaliable in the next 24 hours. If they are hateful about it, I'll upload the file to my personal server.

Onward and upward!

Here's a video of the last 6 hours of work(technically 8-10 but the first 4 hours of 3d were scrapped for my own engine built from scratch).

Maddi and Daddy will be flying through stage 2-1 in fakey 3D! The engine I made converts everything I want on the y-axis to the z-axis and resets the y. So I can have a plain old 2D map made up for a plain old 2d shooter, but it converts the y-axis into depth giving you the 3rd person rail shooter ala Space Harrier look.

It can also work as actual full fake 3D as well if you use distort maps for the 2D sprites.

Anyhow - here is the very early begining of the 2nd stage!

Although I didn't get anytime yesterday to work on the game (was me anniversary) I did manage to get a whole day of work done today!

The 3D is almhttp://www.indiedb.com/games/gogomaddi/videosost flawless with the exception of a bit of clipping at the bottom of the screen. Shooting is already coded in (collision is buggy, I need to look into that), Drew some new gfx and cleaned up the way the 3D displayed. Already playable but there is nothing to shoot at aside of the balloons at the start haha!

To come in this level, weapons, bad guys!!!, more background crapola, and a mid level boss! The 2nd stage will revert to platform play.

I now picture the final boss of the game being both a 2d and 3d fight!!

Oh yeah - I drepmt up a bunch of inbetween stage bonus/mini games. I can't wait to see this project finished!!!

Here's a freakin link to the videos :)

Hey Guys!

Currently working on a construct 2 demo of the game. I will be finishing the game in CC though because there are too many features I used in CC which are no in C2.

The next update will include (and these changes are already made in the html5/webgl version):

2 player co-op - Play as Maddi or Daddy with both 2 players to fight the nightmare masters minions. Players will have two unique ways of fighting in this mode. Maddi is in SuperSonicMaddi mode when in 2 player allowing her to do a sonic like spin jump. She can only shoot forwards. Daddy will be able to shoot in 7 directions.

updated weapons - less exagerated version of the original weapons and the dream grenade now looks way better.

Single player will have the ability to now shoot in 7 directions instead of just foward and backward/ducking and shooting.

Depending on how attached I grow to the redrawn/recolored forest that level may also get the current revamp.

I'll post the link to the html5 demo once the forest level is bug free. Should only be another week tops!

A nearly finished, reprogrammed C2 version of Go!Go!Maddi! Stage 1-2. I'll be adding stage 1-3 to the demo as well in the upcoming weeks. I changed the game around enough internally that I need to make sure everything works in one stage before I start the next since most of the event sheets carry over.

New Demos are out (c2 version buggy and cpu heavy as it is in Alpha stage). Things are missing from both and some things very between the two versions but they should be playing exactly the same now.

Changes:

- Stage 1-2 now has a halloween theme.
- Layout of player stats etc changed.
- New energy bar + 5 hitpoints instead of 3.
- Pumpkin King Boss at the end of 1-2
- Multi directional shooting and dream grenade update.
- No more check points! You reappear where you died. (still glitchy and only on the CC version.)
- The C2 version is still very much under development compared to the CC version. There are a lot of things changed or missing from CC to C2 and I've had to come up with a lot of work arounds.There is no need to tell me what you find wrong with the C2 version, I'm well aware of it's problems and missing bits!
- Game over screen added (CC version)
- Other little things I'm forgetting.

- The 2nd player is no avaliable in either game yet. The second player stat bits are missing from the CC version.
- Wanted to add falling leaves to CC version but ran out of time.
- FX missing from pumpkin king in CC version.



Keys are (both versions):
XandZ are action buttons, Arrow keys shoot.

Keys for C2 version on title screen:
5 - coins
1 - start

Enjoy the beta/alphas They are both fully playable but still have their individual glitches the C2 one has no gameover or level complete screen and sprite z priorities are still slightly messed up.

Ghost sound removed ;)
