Out Now!


Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/944590/Thunder_Kid/
Itch: https://malec2b.itch.io/thunder-kid



Thunder Kid
is a 3D Run 'n' Gun game (kinda in the vein of my previous game Cold Vengeance).  Basically, it's my attempt to take the "3D Run'n'Gun" idea from Cold Vengeance, and make the smaller, tighter, Megaman-influenced version of it.

I'm currently working on a prototype, which is currently on its second day of development.  My goal is to get the basic gameplay down as well as one test level by the end of 7 days.

Started experimenting with some level design.  I wanted to see how well multiple tiered levels could work with this style, and I'm pretty happy with the results.

Also I added spikes.

Decided to try out making a boss battle.  I was having trouble deciding whether to go with big, stationary SHMUP style bosses, or smaller, more maneuverable bosses.  Decided to split the difference with bosses that are about 2X the size of the main character, and also widen up boss arena stages to give them a bit of room to maneuver.

The graphics remind me a lot of Fade to Black

This is literally the second time one of my game's has been compared to Fade to Black in a DevLog on these forums.  I guess I should probably play Fade to Black.   Cheesy

Also, got moving platforms working!

I guess the itch.io was already there for a longer time? Wink

The game will be on Itch as well, there's just more of an incentive to make a Steam page early because of how much Wishlisting impacts visibility.

Hey, look at that progress bar jump up from 20% to 80%!

Today I finished the final boss, which means all the stages and bosses have at least a first pass finished.  Just gotta hammer this together into a playable build and start tweaking and polishing.  I'm on track to release the game on October 22nd.

Here are a few more gifs:

I like the change in texture Smiley

So it's pretty much done then - when did you start it?  I'm curious how long something like this took.

Started at the beginning of August, worked on this for around 10 days in august, as I was working on other prototypes that month as well.  The bulk of the work was done in September.  The quick pace was helped by the the fact I have a pretty substantial code-base that I work with.

No anti-aliasing in the textures too. Very hard edges as a result.

I love it, but the downside is that it can moiré patterns, like with the vertical beams in the last gif. Those are really harsh on the eyes.

If only we could have both the harshness of no anti-aliasing, and benefits of anisotropic filtering...
