Quote from: Lovecraft
201    Planets form’d of invisible matter.

With most of the functionality of my framework XRhodes completed, this is the perfect time to take it for a test drive. I had a very simple idea for a dead body, I only needed some blood -- this is where the above CPB meme jumps in.

It's an asteroids clone. It has invisible asteroids. It also has an evil fucking twist(ish).

What's done:
- most of the basics (shapes, particles, collision detection & handling, textrenderers), thanks to the framework
- most of the artwork (it's a particle)
- game logics (well) & HUD
- sounds (all organic and free range Well, hello there!)
- transitions and effects
- joypad support
- splashscreen/logo and title
- highscore saving (and an online leaderboard would be nice, but I'm afraid it isn't gonna happen)
- gameplay balancing

What needs doing:
- bugfix (sadly, the mixer subsystem sucks at points)

I'd like to port it to GP2X just for the sake of it - so watch out for that.

try to turn the beam you shoot into your unique light source, so you need to shoot constantly to keep track of the asteroids  Grin

I can definitely envision someone obsessively shooting and trying to fill the screen with light, and going insane with stress. That's a Lovecraft story in the making right there. Wink

I've been experimenting with it but didn't work well. And there's another gameplay element which renders constant shooting quite a bad idea in most of the situations. Well, hello there!

awesome. :D for the above reasons, however, I aim to achieve player insanity in another way, tho. Evil

but, you'll be able to see it for yourself as the final game will be posted within 48 hours (the OS X version should really be ready by tomorrow).

I can't wait to play this thing and discover your evil twist for myself. Sounds ominous.


EDIT: Highscore 1030! How's everyone else doing?

Hrmm, your twist is good. Makes an otherwise dull game rather frenetic.
