This game is about a boy who has had to go through some rough things. He hates reality, and escapes it regularly.
But lately his mind has not been a very pleasant place to be.Wishes Above Clouds
will be something sort of like a shooter with roguelike elements. It won't be so much randomly generated
as it is randomly determined
; there will be a fair bit of consistency from one game to the next, but details will change to keep the experience fresh.
This game is pretty well-thought-out, but I haven't made that much progress as far as "actual work" goes. So far I've just done graphics and music, but soon I'll be ready to start actually coding stuff. I'll probably be working in Game Maker just because it's the only thing I know well right now. I might decide to learn something else for this, but that would eat up a lot of time...
I'm not sure how much I want to tell you about this right now, so here are some random details:
-You fly a rocket ship
-The rocket ship gets weapons
-There are guns as well as ramming weapons
-You blow stuff up
-You collect cookies
-You level up
-You find stuff and use it
-There will be bosses
-There is something resembling a story
-The atmosphere will hopefully be sort of unusual
Feel free to ask questions, but I may not answer them; I don't want to say too much in case plans change.
...I don't get a great deal of free time, so progress has been slow. I am working, though, and hopefully running some sort of log will keep me a little more committed to this.
The idea is to finish this eventually, but I'm guessing I'll be working on it for a long time before I release anything playable.
