Misshoni will be a short co-op Metroidvania with emphasis on teamwork and getting by with help.



Hey. So, I've paused development on Soldier Of to try to make a game in a month, which is this one, Misshoni. It's kind of a stupid name, but it comes from "Mission", and "Isshoni", which means "together" in Japanese. I started Misshoni a few days ago. It probably won't sell for very much when I'm finished (I'm thinking $2-5). As usual, I'm using the Blender Game Engine for this project.



You will be able to play with a buddy, or go it alone with the CPU controlling P2. While the main gameplay will be the usual combat-oriented Metroidvania, there will be some co-op techniques, like standing on each other to reach higher areas, reviving each other when downed, or pulling each other up ledges. Think something like Cave Story + ICO, but your partner is as capable as you are.

The really tentative plot is that the main characters wake up having been transported to the ruins of a floating city by an unknown force. They have to figure out a way home.



At the end of the month (October), I plan to release it. I might go back to Soldier Of then, unless I'm really close to finishing and monetizing Misshoni. I suppose I'll also be doing this for Ludum Dare's October Challenge, which is to get a game finished and monetized by November 1, or something to that effect - the rules are a bit vague.  I'm starting to doubt that I'll get it 100% finished in a month, but I might be able to get it to a release-able level, anyway.

So anyway, LET'S DO THIS!

The pre-alpha demo for Windows and Linux are available now here.

Day #4 (Maybe? I'm not sure, but I'm calling it. Day #4)

So yesterday, I coded in where the weapon should sit in the characters' hands, which means that I only have to draw one weapon frame for each weapon (hurrah). Also, working on the background (which is obviously still a WIP), and worked on the tiles since the animated GIF above.



I'm building in support for gamepads from the ground up (as I try to do usually), and I have a gamepad (XInput) similar to a 360 controller now. It's feelin' pretty nice. :D

It will be cool to see what you do with more colors, and I like the angle you're taking with co-op.

Looks cool Lune. What source do you plan on using to sell the game?

Seriously this is looking fantastic. I always like the way you do your character's hair.

Thanks, everyone.

@Nu-Type - I'm not sure, as I haven't monetized any of my games yet, but I'd guess on my website with a self-pay tool, like BMT Micro or something like that, Desura, and Indievania (if I can).

Better tiles, trees, and weapons implemented.





Also, a song for the game - MisshOn. Get it? Because it's... Mis... Hrm.

Nice track Lune. Didnt know you could compose your own stuff aswell. Nice skill to have.

By the way, I noticed that the sun's light affects the sprites around it. Are they 3D models or is there some other technical wizardry at work here? I remember hearing from the dudes working on Chroma, they were using hand-drawn normal maps. Are you?

Thanks, everyone.

@Nu-Type - Thanks. Nah, there's no shaders or normal maps or anything. It's just an additive plane with an orange gradient texture over the sun, which is also just a texture on a plane. No 3D objects whatsoever.

 - Day 6 -

A few seconds ago I was working on the ruins background. I might try to do something with code next.



EDIT: I'll desaturate it some more when I'm done.

Are you still gonna try to finish this within a month?  Shocked This looks good enough...that I think you need to spend more time on it and expand it. Then sell for >$10.  Hand Money Left Hand Money Right

Can't wait to see the enemies.

Oh ok, thats pretty neat!

By the way,I downloaded SunVox and thanks to your tutorials am well on my way on creating my own tracks. And whenever I pick up Blender again, I'll be sure to check out your BGE tutorials aswell.

@zede05 - Hah, thanks. I think I would like to spend more time on it, but if I did, then it would just be a large project - I think I just want to try a concentrated burst of a game. As for enemies, I drew this guy a couple of days ago:



And I have a few thoughts for other enemies.

@Nu-Type - Thanks!

The background ruins are still a WIP, but:

Don't fall.
