I hope this doesn't die, I'd be glad to help you with C++ if you ever need it Smiley

Too bad I have a different vision of how development should go, but can't help it.

And i can't disagree with that =) Good like you too!

Here's the better video, just in case you'll need it:

I don't think I really "need it", given the situation :D But people who are interested in 5734L3R for sure say you "thanx!" for this video.

Have you tried having a bash with GM before?

More than once, it's a lost cause, believe me :D

What kind of help can you offer? I am extremely far from any programming.

I'd be more than happy to help, too. Feel free to PM me.

All right ^__^

1. Continue working on gameplay/mechanics/story.
2. Produce a series of shorts think of Aeon Flux or the animated Clone Wars series.
3. Indiekickstartagogo to hire a programmer.

If I would give one advice to you, I would say stay far away from C++ and aim for something like GameMaker, Unity, Flash, XNA or similar. That way you are keeping the technical barrier much lower, thus enabling a wider range of people to be able to help out. C++ is often more work for the same result when you compare to the alternatives, and it can cause more headaches as well. Judging from what ive seen, the game should work well in any of the technologies i mentioned above. If you want more in depth advice i would be happy to be of assistance.

My personal favorite is Unity where i have been spending almost a year making a 2d platformer. The good thing about Unity is that it makes it easy for the programmer and the artist/designer/etc to collaborate in the editor. The programmer can make values visible in the editor so that the designer can tweak and modify things without the need for programming knowledge. Here is my blog if you want to see how my project looks like: http://steveolofsson.tumblr.com/ In this project i used 2dToolkit and with it i got a full fledged tilemap editor inside unity where i built all my maps, very nice workflow.

Anyhow, get in touch if you want more specific advice.

Good plan, sir!

Partially agree with you. It makes sense prototyping game with simple tools like GM or Flash to understand situation with the gameplay. But the realization of project like 5734L3R too complex for tools like that. I mean as a result this can turn into problems (basically a technical problems) that primarily affect the player and his impressions of the game. (Although it also depends on the skills of the programmer ofcourse.)
Your project is beautiful and Unity is a great engine. But I'm so far away from programming (and even from manipulations with assets), that I prefer when everyone in development does what he had better work.

mmm i dunno, I've tried several languages/engines, for 2d games there's not a whole lot of difference in capabilities.  It may seem like it if you aren't familiar with coding.  Game Maker Language lacks classes, which I find infinitely helpful in keeping a large project organized.  

I'm surprised nobody's stepping up to work with you, this project is dreamy.
edit: oh nvm there are.

I'm going to agree with djdolber on this - Unity is pretty decently powerful from a technical standpoint. There's a lot of stuff that it can do that's just too detailed to list as a set of bullet points on a marketing page. Some of that has to do with it being C#/.NET scriptable, which has loads of programming goodness in itself, but there's also a pretty extensive and well-documented engine API as well. Everything is laid out in the editor in hierarchical scene graph trees (very organizable), so you can have nested objects parenting other objects for rotations/transformations (which I've based more than a couple of mind-bending hacks on myself), and scripts get attached to objects like little modules and can be turned on/off in the editor or from scripts. Just about everything that can be done in the editor can be done dynamically from scripts, and the editor itself is very customizable.

It might not be the best choice for, say, the next Crysis or Elder Scrolls game, but probably worth at least a closer look for most other things, including anything 2D.

To be honest, I'd rather see some kind of Anime or something coming out of this.

To me, the grand landscape GIFs etc. always seemed so much more appealing than the actual platformer gameplay scenes.

But C++ is awesome Waaagh!
Besides, C# and Java are very much similar to C++.

But I do agree that it would be much easier to use a game engine.

I lost the interest in development of this game, sorry. Tried several times to start again and then fail. :C

It's sad but I understand. People, stop pushing him so hard to work on it if he doesn't want to, that won't make anyone happy.

Maybe someday you will find a programmer right for finishing this game, maybe not. Regardless, thanks for being such an inspiration in the meantime, what you did get together was a truly great and unified style that is quite inspiring.
