2 - 4Platform
Windows, might expand later with mono.Gameplay
The entire game plays from a side-view, as you would imagine from a platformer. Players have to race eachother to get to the finish, simple as. There are no different lanes or anything, every player races on the same environment.
The courses will contain obstacles which can be overcome by using vaults and other typical parkour moves.
Players will be able to do "tricks" (flips, spins) to gain points. These tricks will be rewarded by speed boosts or powerups, not sure yet.
Players will also be able to interact to mess with eachother. Graphics
I'm not a great artist, so I'm only able to create 8 bit sprites.
Artists who might be interested in this project, feel free to contact me :DProgramming
The programming is done in a custom engine with C# and SFML.net. This means that I won't be able to port it easily, but I just want to enjoy myself and use my favourite programming language haha.
The engine uses tile based environments, and since I'm not great at maths it will most likely not use too many dynamic objects, or even slopes. (Which is not a bad thing, since the limitation pushes me to come up with other interesting gameplay mechanics.DOWNLOADhttps://www.dropbox.com/s/b43iukydhy1gw0m/publish.rar
