Hey there! After a first successful playtest last night at the NYC Games Forum, I'm officially announcing Sombrero, a local multiplayer game for (as of now) up to 4 players.

Press mentions:
IndieStatik
GameZone

Here's about 9 minutes of playtest footage from the event. Sound wasn't recorded, so what you're hearing is the stage's theme music in the background.

And a few screenshots:






There's still some bugs to squash, and a LOT more art to do, but thanks to C2 things are moving along at a pretty quick pace - the work above represents about 2 months of part-time work, though some of the art and the original idea date to about 2 years ago and a stack of Post-It notes with sketches and scribbles on them.

@CandyFace
Thanks!

Music is by Nathaniel Chambers of Bubble Pipe Media, who I've worked with on a number of game projects & prototypes and who I couldn't possibly recommend more. He also put a great soundtrack together for an old-school adventure game called Primordia that anyone who likes that kind of game should check out: http://www.wadjeteyegames.com/games/primordia/

Thanks!

I haven't tried Towerfall yet - I should play my Ouya more. The video I've seen shows it to be a bit slower-paced than Sombrero, but the basic idea seems similar.

Does Construct 2 run on an XBox360/One? I haven't really looked into that, I've just been concentrating on getting it working on Mac/PC/Linux so far. I know PS4 supposedly supports HTML5-based stuff, but haven't looked into that either. If anyone has an opinion/experience messing with that I'd be curious to hear it.

Chances are I'd look at the Android-based consoles first though. They seem to provide an easier pathway to release, even if I've got to trim a few bells & whistles to get the game running smoothly on them. digitalsoapbox2014-01-16 23:22:54
