Hi! it's my first topic here, seems to be a good place to show work in progress.
I would like to show a game i'm making alone. it's a project started in march 2013.


Interference (project code name),
is a 2D platformer(side view) set in a futuristic world, with basic stealth mecanics.

On top of that, there is a special game mecanic that allows the player to hack/modify level's structure by sliding tiles (like the game Continuity but tiles loop infinitely, more like a rubik's cube).
Lets call these puzzles' zones : "Glitched Zones". Glitched Zones can have different tiles size, number of colomns and number of rows, and a level can have multiple Glitched Zones. Each zones is associated to a "Connector" (or more) and player needs to be near this connector to hack the associated glitch zone.
my english isn't very good but i hope i make this part understandable, maybe an early screenshot can help :


Early screenshot take on a iOS device, forget about HUD and graphics, most of them are quick placeholders i did before prototyping. Player is outside the camera, Camera is focusing on a far Glitched Zone.

Platforms targeted : iOs(in a first time), Android and probably Windows & OSX (the game works fine on a computer but at this stage, controls are better with a touch screen device)EDIT : Reverse Mode ! Windows and OSX first! then port it to mobiles

Release Date : in some months, i don't want to spend a lot of time on this project. EDIT : well, i think gonna spend a lot more time than expected :D


I think that's all for the presentation, and there's still a lot of work to do, see you on next update!

Thanks! I hope too, i have a lots of questions in my brain about the graphics...

Here is some video preview of a playground level :

FPS is quite bad because of the streaming record system (game is normally running at 60 fps on the iDevice)

Hi! thanks a lot guys Smiley
Today, I've started to work seriously on the most boring part: Graphics!

Here is some sprites for the background (contrasts are a bit low, but it gives a better lisibility in-game) :


click on it for fullsize


I've planned to make 10 more sprites of big random structures and then i will work on details (logos, billboards, spaceships, etc...).

Hello!
Thanks for your support!

I'm still working on it but I don't have a lot to show. I've done some level design (i have 10 levels now), integrated a NPC monologue system, added some rain and ambient sounds, and coded more lasers' behaviors (static, rotating, moving, blinking, tracking).
And still working on graphics :

A quick test of background composition :


And some sprite animations :

Edit : Spherae is available here for iOS

Hello,

I've recently made some changes about this project, i'm now focusing on windows/osx version of the game (less optimisations, more fun). Mobile versions are still in my mind but after the PC version.
So, i've added some new things :
- in-game cinematic/dialogue system that looked like an animated comic book
- visual field of view for enemies (with occlusion)
- wrote a new shader for fullscreen glitch
- start to tweak controls for keyboard/mouse

Some concept arts (with process videos)

Good luck with the change of platform. PC worked very well for Gunpoint, which seems to share some similarities with your game.

I really, really like the visual style you are going for. Are you doing everything by yourself?

Thanks a lot!
i agree, Gunpoint is a good reference for keyboard/mouse controls. I will also try to support gamepad... not sure how to do this for the puzzles' mecanic...
and yep, i do everything except the music.

new features added yesterday:
- player can grab every ledges and can climb/fall or jump from them
- player can knockout enemy by tazing them

I love what you're doing here ! The graphics are really cool, they feel a bit like in Flashback, but more modern. The concept arts are gorgeous .. and the puzzle idea is great as well.

I'm glad you're going for a PC version, cause I rarely play on my phone Smiley
