[quote="Mr Wolf":2qpboidj]No offense, but why does the original player sprite never change? (Edit: I thought they might be placeholder, but just in case...)[/quote:2qpboidj]
All graphics are placeholders, that's why it looks so weird, it's a prototype after all.
The topmost three blocks which the boulders are resting against to the right are solid from below rather than platforms.[/quote:2qpboidj]
Thanks, I didn't notice that.
As for selling the game, don't get too ahead of yourself. Making a game, let alone a series of episodes, is a big project. It isn't wrong to think about selling your game, but ask yourself two things:
1) Am I getting too concerned with the selling of this game that it is detracting from my work on the project?[/quote:2qpboidj]
I know, I have done games before. The thing I want to know now is if people actually like to play this games and maybe pay for this one in particular, if it has more production values, otherwise I will just stop developing this prototype and move on to something else, because I really do not want to work on something that nobody would pay for.
2) Will anyone actually want to buy this? Is it worth buying? What makes it stand out from free Flash games and similar?[/quote:2qpboidj]
Exactly, see above. But that's a good question, what makes it stand out from similar games is that this one is very casual, and has some unique features.
I'd also think deeply about how you want your platform creation to work. Having them spawn right where you are standing might not be the best. I found it awkward to use.[/quote:2qpboidj]
You mean when you press UP arrow key?, could you elaborate more on this?, I really do not understand why someone would find it awkward.
Finally, you said you wanted to show off the main features, but there isn't much to show in the demo. It would be nice to see how you plan to handle items.
I know, it is very very basic, I just wanted to know if for now it has acceptable and enjoyable set of features since if It does not work right as it is in this basic level, then it is not going to work if I add more stuff.
It doesn't run for me. This is the first Construct game to crash upon opening... using Windows 7 64-bit.[/quote:2qpboidj]
That's weird, I use only the basic stuff on Construct so I guess this shouldn't happen. I'll see what I can do and I'll post something later. Thanks for letting me know.
Thanks everyone, keep the comments and Constructive Criticism comming.
