Demo was a SMASHING success!

Some good feedback, some good input, but mostly lots of people playing the game for incredibly long lengths of time (for an arcadey Flash game) and not having anything bad to say about it! Beer!

The demo has now been taken down, because the game is sooooo close to being done it's crazy.

Main menu is in and being tweaked. Wrote up a little sound handler so I can start and stop looping music from anywhere. Story mode constraints are being added. Music and sound is nearing final.

All that's left is to get the high score/cookies working, get the options screen in, and we're off to the pitch

I am an inch away from having a release candidate. I am having one serious nagging issue where the code is doing something impossible.
No better way to put it.

I'm going to puzzle at it for another day, and if I can't figure it out, I'll be asking for help.

Three severe bugs fixed.
And with that, ladies, gentlemen, et al., the game is done.
Kind of.

The game itself! Is finished. But the story mode needs a bit of story-ing. The title/loading scrawl needs some more propaganda. And I need to mock in some metrics and such for score and leaderboards and cookies and achievements and such.

The thing is...

I don't really know what needs doing for something like that, especially if I'll be implementing an API post-pitch.

I also don't have the slightest idea how to go about testing such a thing pre-pitch.

Anyone had to deal with a badge/cheev/scoreboard API who could shed some light on this?
Do I swing at it without any kind of skeleton and just say "I'll put it in later?" or mock something in now?

Trying to think of chievs. Also, local high scores!

High scores now work.
Story/howplay mode now ends.
Game now tells you controls for both menu and game.
Madness mode now works flawlessly.
Collisions tweaked again.
All achievements are in.

I've got a week off, so I'm going to take a swing at finishing it up.

Left to do:
  • Achievements need individual triggers
  • Achievements need to record
  • Achievements need a dialog
  • Optional simple hint system?
  • Clear Data option needs a confirmation dialog
  • Opening propaganda scrawl needs to be coded
  • Propaganda arts need finishing
  • Howplay mode ending needs coding
  • Game requires epilepsy warning

This has taken far longer than I expected. Which is fine. But it's not exactly the best turnaround for a flash game, I suppose.

I'm slighly dreading the thought of having to beat my head against porting it for mobile, even though it's absolutely perfect for it. I really want to be done, as much as I love the game.

Decided to take a break to fiddle.

Spent the evening trying to get the game working in AIR and running on my Android phone.

After hours of tinkering and fixes, I've hit a wall, and nothing will give me any further information on it.
Black screen, no debug information, nothing. The only solutions I've found have no useful information or are just complete nonsense.

At some point in the future, once the game is done, I'll take another crack at it, but for now I just don't care to put more time into it.

I've done lots of work porting flash games to mobile with air. Shoot me a message sometime if you're still having issues.

you will save my life.
Got it working, almost, but in the end the debugger just won't work so I can't divine the problem. We'll talk  Smiley

For the moment, though: I finish the arts!

Achieve get screen! Took way too much debugging.
Three categories of achievements: Research progress, climb height, and personal flaws of would-be heroes.
I'm thinking you'll get the full rundown every time, with a special shiny checkmark for the first time you get each one.

So satisfying to see that 'Done' thread icon. Congratulations!

I know I asked you this already, but are you putting it on FGL?

I was originally thinking of it, but I might try pitching it directly to one or two sites. I can definitely think of one that it'd be well suited for. And if I don't hear anything back, I'll go with FGL.
