The way it will work is you'll be able to move the fishing pole around to entice fish, and when one chomps down on the line you tap the action key repeatedly, trying not to snap the line, to reel in the fish.

That's just the game's trailer. Has really nothing to do with the game itself.

I haven't seen any graphics in the game that can't be easily done on the c64. Wink

That isn't an insult to the game, just a response to a curious posting.

Not really. Since the final look and feel of the game hasnt been setup yet, we decided to play around with a C64 theme for the trailer. We may or may not end up using that theme later on. We are pkaying around with a few different ideas.

EDIT: Alpha Update 4 is now live, take a look at what's been added this week.


First up let's discuss the changes in Alpha 4. Each monster type now has their own attack types, most evident in the attack of the blob creature in which a splat damage effect appears over the player. The sound effects system has been put into place, which is currently most notable whilst moving the player about, and during battle where each attack has it's own individualized attack sound. A new CRT effect has been created that simulates the RGB Phase shifting of old monitors and tube televisions, this has been disabled for the alpha for performance issues, but will be a toggle-able effect in future releases. Player collision has also been improved, along with item and monster placement in the dungeons, which is still currently placeholder as the true dungeon population algorithms are being worked on behind the scenes. Finally, the biggest update to the game thus far, the advent of fishing. Fishing in miniFlake is played out as a mini game which is entered when the player approaches a fishing hole and presses into the blinking icon. This takes you to fishing mode, which will display a cutaway view of a body of water over a background unique to your current location. As of yet still in an early edition, player interaction in fishing is fairly limited to just reeling in the line when you have a bite by repeatedly tapping ActionKey1, and cancelling out of fishing using ActionKey2.


Now, this hasn't been the only big thing to happen to miniFlake in the past week. Our Final bit of news is just as huge! As many of you are aware, the sounds and music from miniFlake has been strangely absent up until this update which attempts to fill a part of that void. This is shortly to be no longer as we have recently acquired the amazing musical talents of chiptune artist extraordinaire minusBaby! You can expect a great soundtrack filled with tons of retro effects and cool atmosphere. Head on over to his website and take a look at what will soon be powering the the tunes filling your ears while plunging into the depths and slaying monsters, collecting loot, and earning your place as the grand master in miniFlake!

Thanks for the kind words. Just finished squashing a big bug that caused the options screen to render improperly. That will be in the next update. Going to be putting a good bit of artwork into the next update as well so things should be getting progressively prettier. Also going to attempt to fix the monster AI's movement algorithms so they dont get stuck behind doors and whatnot.

Thanks a bunch guys.

I'd just like to point out, since there is a large amount of speculation going around in regards to the retro look of the game, the major reasons behind the current look of the game. As many of you know the retro look of the game was a limitation set by myself as a challenge to produce a game with atmosphere while staying within the confines of my set limits. The game is not about next generation graphics with billions of polygons and pixel shaders. What makes miniFlake stand out is the complexity of the game while remaining interesting and easy to play (once you get past the learning curve.) The draw of the game is it's varying length combined with a laundry list of features and things to do to keep yourself busy, from simple dungeon crawling, npc communication and relationship founding, to a plethora of minigames to break up the monotony of the dungeon grind. A vast list of spells and weapons and armor and monsters to use them against that all act independently of eachother in unique ways. These are the things you'd expect to see in any next generation rpg, and we are putting them all in miniflake in spades. Of course i'm also very open to any suggestions that you guys have. I want to make this game something that you'd all like to play. So if you dont see something that you would like to, let me know!

Also, when the game is finished and released on mobile platforms, the touch screen interface should resemble something along these lines:

Thanks a bunch. The pixel work in the game is, for the most part, going to stay the same up until the game's final release save for some tweaking and possible gui redesigns that we may or may not go through. The crt screen effect right now is likely temporary and will be expanded on. When the mobile version is released it will be played on an old lcd handheld game type interface similar to the one that i photoshopped. Hopefully that interface will be a fully realized 3d model that could be rotated and viewed from various angles, like you're playing a game, in a game, on a handheld console.

The actual game in your mobile mockup looks way too tiny compared to the handheld thingy.  I like the idea though, just give the game itself more prominence over the model.

Yes, that will definitely happen, this was just a very quick sloppy mockup.
