27 Life and Death
Death—its desolation and horror—bleak spaces—sea-bottom—dead cities. But Life—the greater horror! Vast unheard-of reptiles and leviathans—hideous beasts of prehistoric jungle—rank slimy vegetation—evil instincts of primal man—Life is more horrible than death.

Here's a mock up or something.



Or normal sized if you prefer.

It probably needs to be scarier than that if I want to match the book, but I'm not aiming at a literal translation...

Awesome stuff Xerus. You're using GM for this, right? Hope you got the scaling right, or else those pixels will be quite wasted.

I'm doing the surfaces thing, I'm not letting GM automatically do it... I've seen what evils arise from that.

Graphics work today!  I changed the main character a little, but here he is walking.  I hate animating.

Hello party people.  Just checking in to prove that I'm doing work on this game.  I've been up and down the canadian border this week for Gamma, but I brought my 4 year old piece of shit laptop with me to get as much done as possible with good ole game maker.



So there's a small screenshot.  Since most of the graphics aren't done, it's pretty boring.  Most of the gameplay stuff is in here now though.  Classic platformer stuff for the most part.  Unfortunately I don't think I'll have a build before the deadline to preview anything.

SO GAME MAKER FOLKS... there's no way to just collide with tiles, huh?  I have to make like a bazillion objects for my collision detection?  This kinda sucks... I am running it on a 4 year old not so great laptop, and it lags to hell just with a small test level.  I tried to do this deactivate objects outside of the range of the window (or extended past that) but that ends up breaking most of my game because I need things to happen far out of the window at times.  I can't just turn off my solid objects, because then everything outside the window will fall through them.

Anyway, I should have this done in some form by the deadline I hope.  It may be just a few levels, but if it comes out well enough I'll do an EXTENDED BONUS EX GOLD+ edition of the game with more shit.

THATS IT.
