If you're going to be at PAX Prime this weekend, be sure to stop by the Rocket 5 Studios booth to play Super Rookery (or is it Crow Riders???) and The Phantom PI Mission Apparition! We're in Expo Hall, Level 6 Booth #6903
(across from the OUYA booth).
Here's how the game looks so far, but I should be able to spiff it up a bit before the show doors open on Friday.
Here's the original post:
We have a booth at PAX Prime next week where we're going to be demoing our latest game release The Phantom PI Mission Apparition
. I thought it would be fun to also have a small 2-player game featuring characters from the Phantom PI to help drive booth traffic and to show people a bit more of what Rocket 5 can do.Art:
We have lots of assets we can use from The Phantom PI like the main characters Cecil and Famke and we also have a Crow character that actually didn't make it in to the final game. Plus a bunch of background art. Design:
In the sprit of keeping things simple, the idea is make a competitive game where 2 players are fighting over an object. The player who holds the object the longest wins. You can take the object from the other player by bumping into them. The current plan for the basic layout of the levels and gameplay rules will be similar to the arcade game Joust
which is one of my all time favorites from back in the day.
The rest of the design will emerge as I build the game. As I type this, I have the characters imported into Unity and that's about it. I'll be posting the progress as I go over the next couple of days. We fly out to Seattle on Wednesday morning and I still have a bunch of other prep to do before we leave so with a bit of luck it'll be ready to fly (quite literally) by end of day tomorrow (Monday).
