Art design started ... iterate, iterate, iterate ... satisfactory style emerging from the pixel mist

Visual style is branching organically into tiles and font development, leading to visual feedback and growth of some elements, and withering of others. Mockups conjured into place for tile observation and judgement of suitableness ... Recursion

Ok, I'm bored of this writing style now - back to my normal voice!

So I've started the first bit of code for this project, essentially copying SpaceHero Command's source and ripping out a lot of the game specific code to leave behind a lot of the core technologies. This is where I can see the work I did recently on making the code more modular paid off. Smiley BTW: SpaceHero Command is just on hold, not abandoned!

I've now got random tile blocks displayed on screen to test it out. So far so good!

After some design, mockup and graphics work I've fixed the internal screen size at 320 x 256 (may be wider for widescreen screenmodes). At this size the game will be scaled up to 960 x 768 at fullscreen with a x3 pixel scale for 1024-1366 x 768 screenmodes. And 1280 x 1024 for that screenmode, or 1920 x 1080, etc..

According to google and other information, 768 and 1080 pixels in height are the two commonest screenmodes now on the PC, with 900 pixels being quite a way behind in 3rd.

I'm going to use upto 256 colours, with a lot of shading to make the graphics look a bit better than they are. This is to compensate for the fact that I have for my art I have no anatomy knowledge, very little creative ability, no real colour mixing and shading skills. I am quite good at copying though. Smiley

Anyway, the art will be 'functional', but easily replaceable! In fact with the 320 x 256 size it's a bit like doing art on the amiga all over again.. Smiley

blue:I will have elements of the games that I've posted pictures of. It won't be a straight remake of WoW though. Smiley

So, what is blue:I?

blue:I will be a tile based sandbox game with a full level editor. The player will be able to draw their own levels very quickly and easily (as well as play through the ones with the game, or other user-created levels). The level editor will be capable of creating fast arcade style action similar to Gauntlet, as well as logic puzzles such as those used in Chips Challenge and Boulderdash. If there is enough interest I hope to increase the types of tiles available so as to allow more possibilities and more complexity in the puzzles and game.


Clues:

blue:I is a tile based game.

The player has the ability to shoot fire arrows.

There will also be logic based puzzles using different block types.

The levels will contain both branching and singular paths to move within as the player explores the different levels.

The player will take the form of a blue smiling face and will move from tile to tile in a similar manner to tile based games such as the many variants on Boulderdash. However although tile based the tiles themselves will slide smoothly from one square to another.

Like Wizard of Wor the player will be able to fire in multiple directions as they try to kill attacking monsters.

Inspired by Dandy Dungeons (also the inspiration for the Gauntlet arcade game), blue:I will feature fast paced gauntlet style action using a tile system.

The levels can also contain logic puzzles similar to Chips Challenge with various tile types and logical rules (such as keys, doors, etc..)

I've gotten the first simple map editor working, still very basic, but you can draw and erase tiles on the map and is automatically saved on exit and loaded again on start-up.

Feeling good! Smiley

I like this. I may be better with simpler lightning, though.
