Needed a reason to bump this thread. Are you done yet?

I haven't worked on it much because I'm focusing more on Six Sided Sanctuary, that art is awesome and I would love to use it if that's okay Smiley.

EDIT: I have however thought of backstory/a new name. The idea is to rename the game to either

Sulfur Showdown!

or 15 Minutes of Fame

The story would change slightly depending on the title.

In Sulfur Showdown, contestants compete to earn cash on live television. Though contestants are working cooperatively they must be the last man standing to claim the cash.

In 15 Minutes of Fame, citizens of the future are nabbed off the street and brought to the universal network to be filmed for their 15 minutes (On average). This is the last step of existing in society because if they live they will be executed anyways.

Just to give some extra motivation, nothing related to it will appear in game besides references and logos and such.

I have a physics test to study for so I won't be doing anything today, but expect some stuff over the weekend. I'm trying to get a build for you guys to test out ASAP

Got a 95 on the test  Cool

Progress Update
I'm sick again so bleh, anyways I polished up some stuff, added particles for when you move and jump.
Fixed particles for the enemies to be better (Though they still need to take into account the speed of the object that kills them)
Tilesheets are now able to support a lot more tiles from a small tweak.
Added in Green's art and it looks awesome.

I want to get a demo out soon, though it will probably be buggy I guess that's the point. Hopefully this weekend Rasse will animate the characters and I can release that demo. Anyways the to do list for it would be:

Animated characters
Add a button to pickup objects(so you don't have to move slower just because crap is in your way)
Give turrets health
Make stacked players look better
Document some of the server stuff

Currently controls are:
Z - Jump
X - Shoot
Left/Right - Move

I think I'll shift everything right one because I read somewhere french/german keyboards don't have a z in the bottom left corner.

So I want:
X - Jump
C - Shoot
V - Pickup/putdown
Left/Right - Move

I'll definitely have custom controls as well since I don't find that very comfortable at all.

I'm not sure about that pickup button. I actually like autopickup in these kind of games. If you don't want something, just don't walk over it.

^ Oh, cool. Different characters for different levels? Or are those enemies? Either way, they're excellent.

What kind of 'pickup' button is it for? For crates and weapons? Or things that can get in your way?

Well sometimes it can be hard to avoid picking stuff up. I guess I'll leave it out of the demo and we can decide then. I love that art so much. I'll definitely be putting these in for character selections.

It's to pickup things that can get in your way such as turrets and coins. (Since you want to position turrets precisely, and coins make you move slower and don't let you jump)

Green is awesome. Thanks, obviously a lot of the stuff is placeholder art still. I will Smiley





A new map with the grassy tileset. Enemies only spawn in the two center ones, and fast enemies can only come from the far ones. Smiley

I like how it's still different than super crate box. Have you had any luck testing with multiple players yet?

Nice! It looks like it plays like Super Crate Box just enough to feel the same yet different at the same time!

I want to add characters other than the knight, such as the cube from Six Sided Sanctuary as playable. They will simply be aesthetic. Maybe references to other games if the creators let me Smiley

In case you still need more players for your roster, any of my characters are fair game for anything non-profit (seriously, I'd probably even make the graphics for you just to be referenced...). Yeah, I know you probably won't use any, but it was just a thought...

Rasse has it handled, and I think I'm alright with the current roster Smiley.

Progress Update

Rasse did the animations and guns and they look fantastic! I still have to align the guns in the player's hands properly but it won't be long until a demo!

Animated characters
Add a button to pickup objects(so you don't have to move slower just because crap is in your way)Not going to be in this update if it ever happens
Give turrets health
Make stacked players look better
Document some of the server stuff

As for the readme, I'm thinking about hosting it on google docs. Not sure if that's a good or a terrible idea. Either way, it's completely done.

Here's a video that shows off the animations. Still tweaking to do of course.

I think the black dots falling from the player are a bit awkward, and the enemies spinning down after dying is a bit distracting. Otherwise, development's looking good. Are you sure you want the camera to show so much of the blank space in the level?

Yeah I think I should disable the black dots they really don't make sense. I'll have the enemies be optional, as I like them but I can see how it's distracting. The camera is eventually going to stop scrolling when it reaches the corners of the levels, I just have to implement that.
