Remember the Dead - My Puzzle-Action-RPG

Show us your completed creations made in Construct 2

Post » Wed Apr 10, 2013 11:49 am

Hi guys, what's up? I would like to introduce you to my first complete Construct 2 game, called "Remember the Dead".

I spent a good one and a half month building this game, creating assets, balancing etc. The people who I asked for feedback during the design phases really enjoyed it. If you enjoy the game too, please give me some feedback and -if possible by any chance- please rate the game on Newgrounds, since this game is participating in their Construct 2-Competition.

If there is anything you dislike, please let me know, too. I'm eager to learn from any feedback I can get.




GAME IDEA:

[quote]Remember the Dead is a Puzzle-Action-Game with massive RPG elements. Defend your home town and yourself by teasing your brain with a classic memory puzzle game. At the same time, fight the incoming zombie hordes with your shotgun, earn experience, level up, buy perks and new memory cards from the gold you loot at the battlefield.

Remember the Dead features three different difficulties, which should be suitable for players of all levels of experience. Also, you can adjust the difficulty of the game by setting the pace of how quickly your enemies level by yourself: Of course, fighting stronger enemies will give you more experience and a higher score.[/quote]



SOME FACTS AND FIGURES ;o)
[quote]- RtD was built using Construct 2 r119.
- game consists of ~940 events in 9 event sheets.
- file size is about 15 MB[/quote]

Again, if you have any questions, ideas, feedback, whatsoever, please let me know!!!

Enjoy "Remember the Dead".

Regards,
Chris

@thestoepsl2001

I just had a lot of fun finding gems and being eaten by zombies, so thanks for that. So far, this is my favourite of the Newgrounds entries that I've played as the power-ups etc give it a bit more lastability. I managed to kill 20 zombies before I died, which is much more than I've ever managed in real life.

I did notice a few spelling mistakes here and there, but with the amount of text you're using it was inevitable (still, it might be worth a touch up before the end of the competition).

I'm hoping to have my own contribution finished before the deadline, though I've got a lot of optimisation to do for smaller mobile devices such as iphone (since that seems to be the main device Tom Fulp is testing on. Most of the issues he's experienced with the current batch of games seems to relate to the audio, which is always a problem with Html5)

Anyway, best of luck with the competition.

- Dave

By the way, I was just checking the tags in your game, and they don't mention 'Touchjam' or 'Construct2' (though you have put 'construct'). I seem to remember it mentioning somewhere in the forum that these should both be in the tags if you're entering the competition (just wanted to make sure you don't miss being entered, on account of a technicality).

ohmygoodness sir,

you've got a winner there. tension from the word go...lol. you actually create a sense of dread and threat with slow moving zombies, because every decision makes or breaks you. i loved this game.

well done.

Thanks a lot for your nice feedback, @Dave Hailwood. Great to actually hear that you liked my game design. Thanks for testing the game and giving some feedback!

Seriously!? No, you are absolutely right: Spelling mistakes are always a bad thing. It always gives me the feeling that a designer/author was lacking dedication to his product. I thought I thoroughly checked for spelling mistakes, but obviously a few slipped through anyway. I am not a native speaker - however, that's an explanation, but no excuse ;o)
Would you mind to point me to some of the mistakes I made??? I'd appreciate that!

Good luck for you and your game. Let me know when it's finished and enters the compition.

Also, thanks on your hints regarding the tags of my game. I already talked to Tom and he said he added it to the contest ;o)

Hi @Whiteclaws! I don't consider RtD to be a clone. For that it has too many different ideas; in my opinion it's just a completely different game. Yet, the game is inspired by hit games like Dungeon Raid or -as you mentioned- 10,000,000. Yes: It's a puzzle game with RPG elements. I think it's not a shame that you had role models, is it? However, thanks a lot for your feedback.

Thanks @mineet for trying and letting me know what you thought about the game. Glad that you liked it ;o)

Hi @harrio! Wow, what a nice feedback. It was pleasure reading that one ;o) Thanks for that ;o)

@thestoepsel2001

I've just gone through a bit of the text to find the spelling errors, so here's a list:

In the tutorial:

'The screen consit' - should be 'consists'
'zombies are weak and vulnurable' should be 'vulnerable'.
'shooting zombies will earn you expirience' should be 'experience'
'regular cars' should be 'cards'

then in the gym: 'increase damage dealed' should be 'dealt'.

Considering english isn't your first language, you did remarkably well (better than a lot of english people). I'm sure I'll be drawn back into playing your game again soon, so if I notice any more spelling mistakes I'll be sure to let you know.

It'll probably be a few more weeks before my own game's ready for submission, though you can follow its development in the Construct2 forum (it's called Board Horde). The trickiest part is going to be optimising the game for mobile phones, since board games are best played on larger screen devices like ipads.

good luck, and I look forward to viewing any other game you create in the future.

@Dave Hailwood: Thanks a lot. That's definitely going to help a lot. I'll try to find some time to polish that up. Currently my schedule is quite tight, that is why I entered the compition about three weeks before the deadline ;o) I'll see what I can do. Thanks a lot for your help.

I just tried your game and it's a lot of fun, man. Yeah, keep polishing that one... I'm eager to see the final competition entry! I'll follow your thread and see how it turns out!
