Tutorial: Mikey's Adventure

Post your own tutorials, guides and demos.

Post » Sun Aug 09, 2009 6:02 pm

The tutorial is designed for a beginner to Construct and shows how to make a basic adventure/RPG game. Later tutorials in the series cover more advanced topics such as moving between rooms and layouts and using inventory.

So far I have completed five parts: Part1: making a layout, Part2: Working with Events, Part3: Combat, Part4: Layout Transitions, and Part5: Inventory. These are similar to the Ghost Shooter tutorials, but not quite as detailed. My goal is to touch on things not covered much in other tutorials....

Here are some screenshots:

**A new tutorial Part5 Inventory has been added. This shows how to create a drag and drop inventory system for your RPG **
As always, I appreciate any feedback (constructive preferably ;-). Enjoy!

Looks nice :) I think it'd be better to publish tutorials in PDF or HTML formats, because people will be more likely to be able to read them.

I can open it in Construct, but when I try to run it, I get this error:

Any idea why that might be?

@Ashley. Thanks. I updated the links to point to PDF versions.

@TooManyToasters. I'm not sure why the error. I don't have any special effects or things like that and haven't run into that error before. Do other .cap files give you a similar error, if so then maybe you need to update your DirectX version. If not, then it sounds like a bug and should be reported to developers.

@nosoul Thanks for the nice words. :-)


I have added part3: combat

This tutorial covers things like groups, functions, combat (with LOS) and plasma object. It assumes you have read the prior two tutorials. As before please give me some feedback. I might take a break for awhile due to how long these things take to make!

Thanks for taking the time creating these tutorials. Very handy. Almost everything in here can be put to good use in any genre of game.

Thanks again.

The next tutorial is out!!! This one covers layout transitions, sound, music, light, and general techniques to polish your game.

Based on the low feedback, I've decided to stop creating the tutorials. If you would like to see more tutorials please comment AND mention what you would like to see in the game. If there is enough interest and consensus on topics you would like to see added to the game then I'll consider creating more. Hope you find this helpful!!
