This weeks Agenda/What's Cooking :

(Update) 04/13/2014
It's been a big week. The splash/intro and loading screen's, sadly are still a work in progress (difficult to fill, with no affiliates, lol). A new art style for enemies, and over 70 already in planning. Design progress on the pet system, including 5 new pet's already designed, waiting for final animations and touches. This system is very early stages, but at LEAST will include leveling pet's found within the game. I'll try to get some early pictures up on a few enemies and a pet or two, to show the new look and get some feedback on them. Also, the starter area is completely done, including the first 4 area's of the game (minus parallaxing) and collision. This week I'll attempt to finish the first area's enemies, the characters available to play in-game, and if there is time, tie the music and lighting to the layouts. Quick shout out - Thank's REX, great set of plugins for C2. I'll be hitting up your dictionary/stat array plugins this week off and on (leveled lists', loot pools). Awesome work, thanks.

It's begun! Progress!

Linked a few songs for the project, and have the tilemap for the first area near completed, as well as a few odds and ends :)


Any/all feedback welcome! Let me know what you guy's think on the music, and gameplay ideas are always welcome.

Thanks jihun :)
Thanks nmlucio :)

I really appreciate the replies! I was beginning to think I was all alone over here, hehe. It's a solo project so far. I was hoping to land that old school meets retro indie look, and I'm not sure of that qualifies lol, but the more I'm looking at it, the more it's growing on me (Been trying to imagine, with enemies/sprites/character/effects going on, what it i will look like). Many thanks for the offer of help nmlucio, that's definitely appreciated. This is my first actual C2 project, and I'm sure I'll have a bazillion questions along the way (I think learning the event/script? system here will probably be the hardest for me, coming from rpg maker and 001 engine.

Thanks again you two.

Thanks ffman22!

Nice of you :). It's a learning process for me, and one I'm greatly enjoying. I did get a chance to see your game thread, and it's looking great as well. It's nice to see another metroidvania style game out there, and yours seems to be making some really nice progress. I've finally got some downtime and looking forward to working on the project over the next few weeks. Thanks again :), and if there is anything I can help with, hit me up!

New updates :)

New sprite links uploaded for some of the fauna inside the game. These are non-attacking mobs, but each will be attached to leveled lists and quite killable, or they can flutter about randomly doing their own thing. I'm hoping the art style change will captivate a wider audience. Most of the sprites are super early alpha, including the preview of one of the main characters (?), and will definitely be changing as it progresses. I'll try to upload more track's I'm going to be using in the game as well. I believe were around 9 loops (smaller areas, events), and 7-8 main theme songs. I'll be building a area if there is time this week, with fauna/enemies and one of the main characters, to make a video demo finally.

Music links work, but all of the images URLs come back saying that they've been deleted.

Can you post them again, or tell me where I can see them?

Thanks!

Hey zolointo,

Apologies on the bad link's, it look's imageshack went to a pay-for service only, leaving me to rehost them elsewhere for the time being. I've been silent on the forum's for about a week now, trying to get a website up (hopefully couple of day's), and all the paperwork done for kickstarter/greenlight. It's been a slow process, but definitely needed, and should be done very soon.

I'll try to get those links back up, now that I can post direct linked pictures via tinypic. Hopefully, I'll have the website up in the next couple of day's, showcasing a few project's in the mix and hopefully a lot of free resources for you guys (including the music track's here, which will be free for use :).
