SWORD SURFERWhat is it?
The ungodly spawn of an infinite runner(surfer?) and a shmup where you don't actually shoot anything.What's the story?
I haven't finalised anything yet, but it will likely involve an evil scientist called Meggan* R. LoMania, PHD who is intent on recreating the world in his image, and dudes** flying through the skies on giant swords intent on stopping him.How does it play?
You surf up and down on the screen, stabbing things with your giant sword, and trying to avoid the dude on the sword getting stabbed, shot, sliced, poked, or explodinated by the things you are trying to stab. Collect money and earn EXP to unlock new swords, surfers, and other stuff, and to level up your surfers. There will also be a number of alternate gameplay modes like Minefield, Hydra Onslaught, and Juggle.What inspired you to make this?
I realised that Spellflinger was way too ambitious for just me and my GM and spriting skills, so around Christmas last year I decided to start something else with a much less ambitious scope that I could finish by myself in a few months. The idea for the game came to me one day when I was remembering Tao Pai Pai from Dragonball flying through the air on a giant tree trunk.Is it playable?
The game is still very much in progress, (see devlog icon), but by the power of the intertubes, you can play the latest version in your broswer here.But enough talk! Have screenshots at thee!*If Tracy can be a dude's name, Meggan can totally be a dude's name too.**'Dudes' in this context includes guys, girls, sentient magical animals, aliens, and robots, all taken from a bunch of other game ideas I have.
