Goodvibe is a simple little guy who likes to share the magic of music. Lately though, people have been kinda bumming him out. He's not a very good singer ... but maybe if he tries his hardest he can make things better.


Will post more as development progresses

(there's some potential I might post some updates on my twitter so if you're interested in that, click the link in my signature)

Starting off with a tiny bit of visual polish + musical notes bounce around so making friends is more forgiving.

When singing Goodvibe will move really slow, this is to making aiming less troublesome, and break the gameplay up into chunks where you're singing at potential friends, then dodging their poorly advised behavior. Goodvibe can also unleash a flurry of notes at once, but he needs lots of courage to do so. Courage will be obtained from drinking spirits that the characters will drop when they are persuaded by your music -- The problem is that courage will drain over time so once you have enough you should probably use it (Haven't implemented that yet).

This looks really charming. It makes me want a roguelike about making friends.

Thanks for the encouragement!



Goodvibe requires rootbeer to sing, it's just the way he is. Don't judge him. Rootbeer will be both your health and consumable throughout the game, it slowly drains until 25% is left then it stays in his system for forever. Bad vibes from other characters will also drain it; if Goodvibe runs out of rootbeer, then he will pass out and most likely wake up in a bad part of town with no recollection of the night before. Is Goodvibe's dependence on this substance healthy? Probably not, but then again what really is? It's best not to think too hard about it.

I'm loving those bouncing and popping notes.

Meet the bruiser. They like to start fights at bars, and just be bad people in general. But they can't resist a good song, and underneath that tough exterior they are actually quite sensitive.



Breaking character a bit, the plan is to have at least four levels in this game, with unique characters for each. Depending on how ambitious I get, I might make the settings a bit more unique too (Rather than a simple Zelda dungeon style knockoff) but I'm not going to make it a priority.

Hello is it alright if I include one of the images (you can pick one if you'd like) to put on the frontpage for a WHOLESOME HALFWAY update?

sure. you can choose whichever you like. Smiley

Edit: So, I might have to cut down on the scope of this project dramatically -- I got pretty sick and have been pulling way too many hours at work (We've been understaffed). Rest assured, I still plan to finish! Just wanted to let you guys know that it might not be as huge as initially planned.

That being said, I really like this idea as a concept. So at some point, I will probably make a full game out of it.



In other news, I think Gooldvibe finds these eye statues suspicious.... He feels like he's being watched.

This looks so cute! But I really miss the audio - isn't that kind of essential with a theme like this? Smiley
