Dom! It's been so long since I've seen your work!

We used to be friends on LiveJournal. (I was ninja__attack.)

Your stuff looks amazing! Keep it up!

Hah, that looks really cool. Do the hats do anything? Or do they just differentiate the slimes? Can you pick your own, or does each slime have its own hat?

Hats depend on the number of players and which player you are. You can't choose them yet, maybe someday if the game catches on!

Dom! It's been so long since I've seen your work!

Hey thanks! The LJ days are so far in the past now, you guys were a great motivation and support! Smiley

We're almost there! We'll be presenting the game at the Mount Royal Game Society on Wednesday, then we'll take our time to polish the game for a while!

Took quite a long time for me to produce the background art for the game - I really wanted it to be detailed and colorful - but it was worth it. I'll probably tweak it and add some details in the coming weeks, when I have a bit more time.



I took some time to do some animation too - slimes exploding! It's sort of a placeholder, ince I don't have time to do proper animation... But it's still kinda funny!



We tested the game a bit, but only amongst our team (and with my girlfriend!), so I'm expecting some issues will pop up when fellow devs test the game out on Wednesday. We'll do a round of tweaks and patching up in the next couple weeks, then we'll be ready to show it again at some other event!

I'm jealous of those devs. This seems like a good game to sit down with my girlfriend and/or family and have some insane fun playing.

Any chance of a release date or public testing coming soon? Tongue

We're taking our time on this one - we'll present the game in any event that shows interest, we'll put it in Montreal's Arcade Royale cabinet and we'll gather as much hands-on feedback as we can. We'll fix and tweak it for a while, then we'll start thinking about how we should release Greedy Piggy Chase to the public. We also need to fix and test controller support and various screen resolutions before releasing it.

One last big crunch time today, hopefully I can add a couple animations and polish a couple assets!

Random idea : Let the player choose to be a monster who doesn't collect coins, but instead exists soley to get in the other player's way and can drop traps, shoot fireballs etc.  Possibly give the player the option to do this after being defeated by another player.

Lookin' good. Maybe add some particle effects- purple stuff bubbling, water running with fish jumping, etcetera. Also, the purple stuff looks a little out of place in the center town- maybe replace it with spikes?

I like this idea. Sounds like the Zombie mode in the Bomberman games where you would ride around in a cart on the edge of the map chucking bombs at the remaining players.

EDIT: By the way, the game's looking great, and I love the style and colors. The red roofs seem a little off to me, though - maybe they're too bright with not enough contrast. Otherwise, it's great.

Oh my god, I loved doing that. It was too funny sometimes.

I'll put in another vote for the idea.

Just wanted to say that it's super awesome seeing the work you put in to help all the games get a little extra exposure on top of putting in the time to work on your own games.  Gentleman

Love the illustration-y style! The death animation could be pushed a bit, but you've already made note of that. 'Til then, I'll just feast my eyes on all the delicious colours!

Thanks guys! Thanks for the suggestions - right now we're resolving bugs and integrating animations, so we won't do any major change today! We'll think about them for the future of this game!

We're crunching hardcore tonight, hoping the game will be playable and bug-free tomorrow at the Mount Royal Game Society!

The game's pretty much done! We showed the game on Wednesday and it's a success! We've had a bunch of players try it out, shouting at the screen and waving those controllers around, so I believe people were enjoying it a whole lot!  We're working on making this game part of the arcade cabinet at the Prince of Arcade in Montreal next tuesday, which is the next big step for Greedy Piggy Chase! We feel this game is perfectly suited for arcade cabinets and big screen gaming in indie game events!

 Beer!

Here's another scene!

The purple and the red are eye-burning. I'd consider toning them down a bit Wink

I agree on the colors..

Also, I love this idea, there needs to be more games like this!
This game also makes me more confident in the game my team and I are working on which is sorta in the same genre, we're aiming to make a really fun 4 player couch-multiplayer mode Smiley

Have you thought about releasing this on OUYA? It would be an instant buy for me.
