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.

Steam Page


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.
