Agj: That's what I did at first (random(75)+75), but I found I rather have more control over the colors, which blend in bm_add anyways.

Gainsworthy: Haha, ok, it's a one man effort mostly. I had to learn some programming because most programmers I know who want to make 3d hi-tech games. And had to learn how to structure my ideas into properly designed game loops. The artwork is the easy part.

Very impressive.  I don't know how I feel about the stylistic dissonance between the background images and the foreground characters though...(that is to say: I actually don't know ... I think I'll have to wait 'til I've played it...).

Get out of here! That's insane.
That screenshot looks like Braid on acid with Brom varnish.

I started integrating the various creatures. They actually play the role of a life counter, and if you want better scores, sometimes it's better to sacrifice one life to save time. I also have integrated the idle, worried, fearful and shooting sprites for the carnby object.  Could you find the anomaly in this picture(use the earlier image as a clean reference Smiley)

OOH, OOH, PICK ME! In one picture, there's a Green dude getting shot. And in the other, there's a Tentacle Man in a rather strapping bowler hat. Do I get a prize?

Uh, though, really, I don't see it. Is it IN the pictures? Or the entire screen?

Wow, that's kind of ridiculously hard to figure out, though. Unless one has the ability to quickly flick between the two, like I did.

Yeah is that supposed to be a skull? maybe you should adapt the color to the colors underlying or something. It's a bit too hard to notice.

Chentzilla: Yes, I'm really comfortable with gml now, I don't feel the restraints I had in my humble beginnings. Also, I'm a very 'visual' person; I tried learning blitz basic a while ago, but to me, the functions tab (even with a name on it) don't say anything. In game maker, I have my little objects with sprites I can recognize instantly, and I find it easier to navigate through.

Moi and Agj: Thanks to your comments, I changed the gameplay quite a bit(for the better).It was too hard to calibrate with the randomness of the anomalies, and it made no sense some times since you did'nt really know what you were looking for (sometimes mostle a blotch). Screenshots to be posted later in the day.

Edit: Here is a screenshot taken of a new wip painting. I'm also hard at work on the final GUI, really want this to be very sharp. You now see this shiny block descending down the screen, with the creature trudging towards your character. You need to click on the part of the painting that is represented in the block. The catch? Well, they go down faster and faster, they get rotated and coloured, augmenting difficulty as you progress through the levels. Each creature/level has a set number of hp/times you need to correctly get the answer. I was thinking of a mode where every mistake(which right now only results in a small waste of time)creates a block at the bottom, making the next fall even shorter.


This one was rotated by 90 degrees clockwise.


But I found it. I made it a bit easier by accepting finds that are touching the lamp's light(before it had to be a mouse click within the 32x32 square, which resulted in sometimes infuriating near-misses)

Seriously, I can't express how amazed I am by that artwork. Shocked
With the very first painting I thought it was a picture of some very old painting. Then I saw the second painting and my jaw was dragging over the floor.
