Holy crap it's HARD. WTF I think enemy bullets should be slowed down a tad to allow you better chance of dodging them.

Other than that it's looking awesome. Beer! Hand Thumbs Up Right

That must've been a wink to Pitchblackoids, I've toned it down now. There's a new build coming soon.

Thanks.=)

Okay computer, v0.92a is out now!

The improvements are numerous, please check readme.txt.


If you've made a level that you'd like to see included (and yourself credited for it of course), drop it here or PM with all of its dependencies (if you used something rather than the default textures and music).

the quiet that has been there in the topic is rather informative, still, trying to do my best on my level I've picked up the source after these couple of days (and building a bed=) ), and carried on with it.

- after eventually seeing people play the game, I've toned the difficulty down farther down.
- the game being supposed to be an Anit-Shooter, I've removed the kill count from the evaluation and the HUD. you're only supposed to shoot certain entities (fail: this wasn't quite clear in the compo version).
- there'll be some messages to inform the player about crucial events like acquiring a bubble or approaching the end of the stage,
- I'm making a start on the bosses and implementing the story


EDIT: nevermind. I had one week extension in mind (starting 29th March), but I've just realized that the deadline is April 7th.

The deadline was actually midnight Sunday.

ICE-9, I took the liberty of fixing the links on the first page. Gentleman

Just gave the game a few plays. Pretty hard, especially if you're trying to kill the enemies, and some of them can take a beating. But it was fun, had nice music and sound and some stylish graphics.

Thank you for the fix, Melly! Greatly appreciated.Gentleman

Also, glad you liked the style. The difficulty, it seems to be one of my weaknesses now - I've further toned it down for the first post-compo release, which will be soon out; however I've made a mistake by not pointing out in the game that the most foremost objective is to find and shoot the flashing enemies (as in the story version the Memory Bubbles will be pretty important) - this will be corrected too.

Crashes on startup somewhere in SDL.dll

I have WinXP SP2 and a GeForce mobile video card.

I'll try the OSX version when I reboot into OSX, but thought i'd post this for posterity.

Thanks for the note, Ivan.

The SDL .dlls are the factory default ones; I've tested the game on a Bootcamp XP SP2 (although on an ATI card), and the closest it came to a crash like that was when I forgot to include the ogg vorbis dlls. I don't know if it could be something related to those this time? (I can't remember whether the stderr,txt is getting deleted on crash or is it any help?)

I hope the OSX version worked fine.

Great game! I wasn't able to get to the end of the forest level though, it's much harder to dodge bullets in it than the other two.

I like the paper cut out look of everything, like a popup book, but I think you should have taken it further. Put little white cutout lines around all the enemies. Have levels open up like a pop up book. A scifi popup book.

But bytejacker liked it.

It's not really meant to be like a popup book, just 2D objects in a 3D space.

Glad you liked it.=) The forest level is a bitch, but positioning walls between the bullets and yourself help in minimizing the amount of dodging that you have to do (which otherwise is a lot -- you have to be in about constant motion, however it means more like small movements).

I like the paper cut out look of everything, like a popup book, but I think you should have taken it further. Put little white cutout lines around all the enemies. Have levels open up like a pop up book. A scifi popup book.
I like the idea (as such)! Considering that I wanted to make use of the engine for another game, I may build upon it, but for Tragedius I won't be going in that direction. (The story mode will clear it all up.)

But bytejacker liked it.
Shocked  This is awesome news!

Very cool loocking game and concept, it is kind of hard to aim at an enemy, but very good congrats.

thanks, Greender (and everyone who voted).

just to be on the complete side, I've released the final version of Tragedius.

new features include:
- full screen motion blur
- Gatekeeper collision detection fixed
- we've got game messages
- got a new scoring system which might or might not work better than it used to, but hopefully point towards the objective of the game

The reason for the release is nothing else but having wanted to see some new features of the XRhodes library in action (and fast) and fixing some mistakes in the design. The GLU32 dependency is cut off too (the only functionality the library was using was mipmaps - now the irregular (not power of 2 pixels wide/high) textures look a bit uglier on scaling but the game is running faster).
