Looks amazing, love the graphical style! The bouncing palm trees and struggling vultures are awesome Smiley

The only thing that seemed a bit odd was the way the baby caught snow in the third level; as if the baby bloats into a ball. This is especially clear right before the end of the clip, where the baby collides shortly with the surface, bounces of, yet grows in mid-air.


Good call man ill try and fix that, good spotting.

Wow this video is really neat. That's a nice framework you must have there.

To be honest its all hack code, ive never done anything physics before, especially in MMF, im just hoping it all sticks together once everythings in  Grin

I had no freakin' idea MMF could do that!  Color me impressed!

Curious what it looks like when he hits the bottom.  Is there a tub full of other babies down there to land on?

depends on the level, each level has a themed landing zone, the vulture level has a indian bon fire which "breaks your fall", we wont talk about the fact that its a giant raging inferno.  the jungle level natives break your fall in a giant boiling pot.  And yetis (Thanks to suggestion from skrew!) await with a pile of yeti dung at the bottom of the snow level to break your fall, its all class.

Maybe if you continue developing this game after the competition is over, you could do a "secret" level where a spaceship shoots past and drops the baby on another planet. Perhaps Mars, so that you can fall slowly and admire the background. (Don't forget to deploy your Pathfinder Mission airbags for a bouncy landing!)
Or just some wacky made-up planet with aliens and bizarre plants and whatnot.  Tongue

I wouldn't worry about time.  I'd rather have 3 minutes of consistently good content than 30 minutes of filler.

THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

For my first post ever I would like to state that not only is that the greatest movie  to come out of the eighties, I mean besides Masters of The Universe, but David Bowie is crotchtastic.

ROFLS.

OK on a seious note, i did some optimising last night, it runs realy good on my core duo 2ghz, runs okay on a 1.7ghz single core, so anyone running anything under that  "might" have performance problems, I guess its the other downside to mmf and my sloppy code, I cant guarentee anything under my oldest test machine (the 1.7ghz) that is, if anyone has a realy old dinosaur, like between 1-1.7 ghz with a ok 3d card email me at [email protected], or add me to messenger, I realy need to test to get the min specs  Grin

It's like that old joke.  What do you get when you toss a baby in a blender toss a baby off a cliff?

An erection.

on a side note, not sure if ill finish anymore, new job is fairly overtime heavy already, but ill release what I have regardless, so long as everyone who downloads it understands im well aware that some things might be unfinished or missing, fuck I hate bills, I wish I could pay them with indie spirit, shit id be rich rollin.

Not expecting it to get anyone excited but hopefully you guys get 3 mins of fun from my 3 weeks of off and on work, that will make it worth it :>  Might do more on it after the comp if this overtime shit slows down.

FUUUUCK.

Expect a demo sometime this week sometime.

Thanks for the kind words guys, im tired, need sleep, but im going to put this build out there, so I can get first impressions, shit you thinks sucks, shit you guys like, im tired if I haven't mentioned.

Im guessing this is fairly to "done" ive done about 8-10 feature cuts tonight, stayed up and polished the shit I could off, so i know theres bugs, and some things might not quite work or make sense without the features I cut, but take it for what it is, hopefully its a few minutes of fun for you guys. 

Ive got a few more days to mod features, but my time is really limited, my new job is go-go-go-etc, so basically any tweaks you guys can suggest that don't include "make it MMO" would be great.

Oh, performance bugs, i know theres a few, dodgy getting stuck bugs, theres 2, happens rarely but there still in there, will probably take a day or so to fix, so might have to clear that shit after the comp or b4, well see.  As for difficulty, the stages are ordered in difficulty, but id like to hear from you guys if you want it easier or harder, changes like that are easy to do and make all the difference.

First one to beat my scores wins the internet, or alternately gets a "throbbing ass injury", lol, purely unintentional honest.
