Memories

Show us your completed creations made in Construct 2

Post » Mon May 05, 2014 2:03 pm

It's time for me to thank the Scirra team from the bottom of my heart for developing Construct 2. This wonderful software allowed me, a person hopeless in learning programing, to express my self thru an interactive creation. The work I speak of is tilted "Memories" and was my graduate project for the Department of Fine Applied and Applied Arts of the University of Western Macedonia in Greece.

I intended to make a proper presentation of the project, putting as much information about the developing process as I could, but for various reasons this has being halted from my part.
I want to share my work with you though and, even more, make a statement about what this software can provide to someone, even to people like me -that are practically useless in programming.
Well, :oops: here I go :oops:

A short trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9G1j0ZCdms

A short description would be the following:

The work "Memories" is an interactive, audiovisual narration of an immaterialized, digital world, reflecting personal experiences and recollections. The viewer controls a paper-thin character as he unfolds an outline of thoughts and emotions, from my childhood until now.

"Memories" plays as a Platformer. Use "A & D" keys (or arrow keys) for movement, Hold "Shift" to run and "Space" (or up arrow) to jump. At any point you can change level by hitting "ESC" and choose one from the menu. The experience however is meant to be linear. For best performance and implementation of the Advanced Audio API use Google Chrome. Please, have in mind that this isn't an optimized application to run on tablets and phones, it is around 108 Mb in size and it runs most of the times at 60 fps on my 5 year old mid-high range computer, at full-screen with Letterbox Scale. So, a modern laptop or an average Desktop is recommended ;)

I hope you like my work, I've put a lot of effort to it and it caries a lot of emotional charge. I especially want to pay my respects @Ashley and thank him again, with his support and genius development skills I was able to express my self, so, yes, THANK YOU! :D :oops: :lol:

Oh, and check out the credits, I was sure to include all the forum members that helped me with their wonderful advices, add-ons and examples. Kudos to the Scirra community also! :D

Elias ;)

Absolutely mind blowing stuff.... what a work of art! You should be so proud of this!! Personally I can't think of anything else in the interactive medium as visually jaw-dropping as Memories.... and it was such a fluid experience too, very surprising.

The only issue I came across was a typo you may not have noticed.... you said "provited you live in..." instead of "provided"... just thought you might want to fix that. Otherwise..... amazing!!!

@PhoenixNightly Thank you very much, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! :)

@DravenX Well, that will definitely affect the statistics that the 3rd level provides you :D I don't have any plans on expanding this work, but it gives me courage to know that you like it :)

-EDIT-
//Unfortunately I am having trouble re-uploading the game to the FTP server right now. After dirtylook was so kind to point out a typo, I had re-exported the game, but for some reason some files have different sizes and others are not getting thru. The credits are not playing because the event system waits for a on-time cue. Oh well... :)

Problem solved, project up and running, end credits are rolling as they should :)
